Never Let the Truth Get in The Way

Good old Stuff & Nonsense are beating the climate emergency drum as loud as they can. One has to wonder what financial inducements there are behind this Stuff & Nonsense campaign for them to be so hard out on the climate crises and so low on facts and reality.

For example, a church being drowned by the rising sea levels. An emergency? A crisis? No. Nothing to do with the climate whatsoever.

When Mary Ann San Jose moved to Sitio Pariahan more than two decades ago, she could walk to the local chapel. Today, reaching it requires a swim.

The main culprit is catastrophic subsidence caused by groundwater being pumped out from below, often via unregulated wells for homes, factories, and farms catering to a booming population and growing economy.


For this congregation, it is absolutely a crisis and it is absolutely man-made but it is absolutely nothing to do with CO2.

Areas north of Manila like the provinces of Pampanga and Bulacan have sunk four-six centimetres (1.5-2.4 inches) a year since 2003, according to satellite monitoring. Noel CELIS (AFP/Noel Celis)

No wonder Stuff will not allow comments on any climate ‘crisis’ article.
