Someone pointed me to this article

The "Tuvalu sea levels aren't rising" and "Maldives sea levels aren't rising" are two arguments we haven't rebutted.

BTW, I believe this is the capital of Maldives - I really don't see much hope for that island over the next few centuries:

John, I have written up rebuttals for the coral atoll argument, which covers the Maldives and Tuvalu. Have only had one response (from the Yooper) so they're stuck in forum peer-review limbo. And yes, the Maldives are stuffed.

Yes, looks like that is the capital, Male. Didn't realise the Maldives was like that.

It looks like an artificial island.

One wonders how the skeptics think coral rubble and sand washing up on the shore is going to stop buildings and runways from being submerged. That requires some pure imagination.
