Torres Strait Islanders need to take a reality check – their islands are sinking
by staff writers
The inhabitants of Boigu, Poruma, Warraber and Masig Islands in the Torres Strait should take a reality check.
These poor people have been duped by the climate change cult, the ABC and the communists of the United Nations into believing their islands are being submerged by rising sea levels.
Geologists have long warned that some islands in the Torres Strait are actually sinking because of poor sub-strata and in some cases they are just sandy or coral cays which come and go over years.
There is no evidence anywhere in the world of significant, rising sea levels.
The Marxists of the UN have found that the Islanders are being denied their Human Rights because the Commonwealth Government of Australia has done nothing to prevent the islands from ‘rising sea levels.’
The Human Rights committee said Australia had violated two of their three human rights set out in a UN treaty, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (1966) — the right to enjoy their culture and be free from arbitrary interferences with their private life, family and home — but not their right to life.
Some 173 of the 193 UN member states have ratified the covenant, including Australia. Naturally the island inhabitants want compensation.
There is no enforcement mechanism but there are follow-up steps, and states generally comply with the committee’s findings.
The UN Human Rights Committee called for the Australian government to provide the islanders with an effective remedy to stop their islands from being submerged.
When the UN and Australian governments do not believe in God it is hard to fathom how they can stop the land form from sinking.
Already the State Labor Party and the Federal Liberal Party have wasted many tens of millions of dollars shipping several million tonnes of large rocks 1400 klms from Cairns to the Torres Strait to form sea walls, all to no avail.
Dumping massive amounts of rock on the beaches has exacerbated the problem by adding more weight to the land causing it to sink even more quickly.
Labor Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus said the Albanese government was committed to working with Torres Strait Islanders on climate change.
“Soon after the change of government, the Prime Minister, the Minister for Indigenous Affairs and the Minister for Climate Change and Energy traveled to the Torres Strait to talk with elders and owners about the impacts of climate change on them,” Mr Dreyfus said.
The Indian Ocean to the north west of the Australian continent merges with the Timor Sea then further east with the Arafura Sea then Torres Strait waters. The Indian Ocean has recorded a 0.00mm sea level rise in the past 100 years.
Doesn’t water find its own level?
