New island appears off coast of Germany

19 posts in this topic

A new island the size of 34 acres and providing sanctuary for hundreds of sea birds has emerged from the waters of the North Sea.

Despite its youthful age the sickle-shaped island lying 16 miles off the coast of the German state of Schleswig Holstein is already home to around 50 different plant species and proved popular with sea birds such as herring gulls and oyster catchers, eager to take advantage of its unspoilt and pristine environment.

Living nature is freaking amazing at how quickly it will adapt and move in on new territory.

So it's essentially a growing sand dune?

From the article, it's good to hear that grasses have been forming; helping to stabilize the new island from small storms.

The bad news is that the article states that a large storm could wipe it out all together.

I wonder if somehow this is connected to "Doggerland", covered in the December issue of Nat Geo?

Not at all. It happens around here all of the time.

It's just a large sandbank: they come and they go.

Pretty cool, and a nicer way to form an island than volcanoes. Although volcanoes are pretty cool too. :)

Because they are showing the wrong island.

Look at the photo in this article:

http://www.wwf-jugen...er-nordsee;4899

And this German article explains that the only reason the island still exists is because we haven't had storm surges in the past 10 years. So it could be gone in a few months time, or not.

EDIT:

Hmmm.....

Now i think I'm wrong after all. Let me look for a bit more info.

EDIT:

It think it's a lighthouse on an older island nearby, but in the article it looks like one island because of low tide.

The appearance of this island in the North Sea just confirms the stats revealed last year which show that sea levels fell between 2010 and 2011.

I wouldn't expect the Global Warmists to mention too much of it, though. They'll ignore it.

Where is the water going? It's being locked up in snow and ice, of course.

How can the water be getting locked up in snow and ice when there is less all the time and many islands disappearing because of rising sea levels.

Maybe it is a common occurence, as some people have already mentioned, but I still think it's amazing! Hope it survives the storm heading for it.

There isn't.

Sea levels aren't rising. They are falling. Did you not look at the link I provided?

No. Like all Global Warmists you choose to ignore any statistics which show your religion is false.

NASA data has shown that sea levels have been falling since at least 2010.

This has caught the Global Warmists by surprise, just like Britain's Met Office - another bunch of Global Warming loonies - were surprised when their own data revealed last year that there is NO Global Warming.

Rather predictably, the Global Warmists are responding to the new data which shows that sea levels are falling by saying that it is "temporary" and that sea levels will start to rise again soon.

Yeah, we'll see.
