Has St Greta called for all volcanos to be shut down because of their green-house gas emissions?
Only if they're man made.

Has anyone told Thunberk the story of the Ark? - and shown her where Mt. Arrarat is? I know it's contentious, the location of Roman port towns now significant distances from the coast cannot reasonably be argued against however. Neither can the water damage to the Sphynx.

I'm in the UK . My village is 30 miles inland . Used to be a very busy Roman coastal port .
 
Who taught you that?
Next you'll be suggesting that ozone isn't produced by a variety of processes including lightning, photocopiers and the breakdown of exhaust gases. Or that ozone depletion and global warming aren't two entirely separate processes. Or that, having recognised that CFCs depleted the ozone layer and phasing out CFC use, the reversal of damage to the ozone layer is proof there was no issue in the first place.

Spoilers!

Ah never mind.

Curiously, though I understand the Chinese can be legitimately criticised on this one as remote sensing and so on are indicating that they some of them are breaking the Montreal Protocol.

Closing by 2050, but it's a bit more complicated than that. Have a Smithsonian article:


"Each year during ozone hole season, scientists from around the world track the depletion of the ozone above Antarctica using balloons, satellites and computer models. They have found that the ozone hole is actually getting smaller: Scientists estimate that if the Montreal Protocol had never been implemented, the hole would have grown by 40 percent by 2013. Instead, the hole is expected to completely heal by 2050. "
That's good, I may be able to use those cans I kept in the shed before I die. Shower in a can, the girls loved it.

I'm going to guess, without knowing the exact location of your village, that most of the new land has been created through sedimentation rather than isostatic uplift. If it's south of a line roughly between Mid Wales and the Humber estuary, then it's more likely that the region suffered downwards movement (~ 2 mm/yr, so about -4 m over 2000 years).



Stockamp, J., Bishop, P., Li, Z., Petrie, E., Hansom, J., & Rennie, A. (2016). State-of-the-art in studies of glacial isostatic adjustment for the British Isles: A literature review.

As it was 30 years ago and I was a teenager, it would have been my science teacher following the curriculum set before him by the education ministry. What I'm putting across is that the "settled" science of the late 1980s where the ozone layer was supposedly irreparably damaged and would never be mended has been refuted.

The very same will happen in a generation or two from now with this sham of AGW.

Likewise, The Bell in Hythe used to be a smugglers pub (my late FIL found 2 skeletons in the recently unbricked fireplace, both were 'Revenue Men') The seafront was a max 50 metres away, nowadays its more like 400 meters.

Harlech Castle.... Originally had the sea lapping at its ankles, now it's a mile inland.

On the creeping influence of XR and their brand of catastrophe porn, I was at a conference last week of this mob:


The Tenant Participation Advisory Service Scotland.

which was held at the Fairmont Hotel, Saint Andrews. A fairly nice, plush, upmarket establishment, I must add.

Anyway, one of the workshops held at the event was on the future of housing up until 2050, and a few phrases kept coming up, one of them being "the climate emergency", which given the way it was being said by the speaker should have been typed there in Arial 24Pt Bold Underlined, so my ears pricked up a bit and I said to myself, "Well, I know what's coming up pretty soon", and lo and behold one of the slides had XR's logo and one of their acronyms all over it. I had the same reaction to seeing that slide as Dracula has on seeing a crucifix but felt unable to pipe up on how stupid it was to show that terrorist organization's propaganda as everyone else in the room seemed to be lapping it up like what a puppy does for kibble.

I've never met one of XR's true believers before, and now there were two of them. It was a bit like being one of the "ordinary decent Germans" in the midst of a fervent crowd in the Bürgerbräukeller listening to one of old Grofaz's speeches in the Twenties, just before he went mainstream.
 
Chester used to be a roman harbour as well
