Scotland: Islands under threat from rising sea levels – BBC News

The impact of climate change is already being felt in the Western Isles of Scotland. Rising sea levels and powerful storms are eroding the dunes and machair land that protects many low-lying communities. BBC Scotland News spoke to Uist crofter Iain Macdonald, whose land is slowly being consumed by the sea. Video: Iain Macinnes & Jose Silver Editing: Morgan Spence Please subscribe HERE

  1. Let me say…sad is the fading away…as water rises, as winds increase low-lying land will be submerged… disappear under waves…as low-lying lands flood, here and there new islands will appear…as the coast moves in…on land…unless it is too low, and simply disappears

  2. The coastlines and floodplains are supposed to flood, stop equating climate change to this so dramatically. Yes climate change is happening but at what rate? In what location? Your talking about a place that has probably flooded for thousands of years, with a man backing up climate change alarmist with anecdotes. Just ridiculous.

  3. We all need to severely cut our meat and dairy intake (in developed nations). How many times will scientists have to evidence this before people listen?

    Our excessive consumerism is taking a massive crap on everybody else. We now drink oat milk and eat pea based meats in this house, and we do it for the benefit of other humans (and i am unwaged, at the lowest economic level in the UK).

  4. If the government were serious about protecting the land they would … but they seem to sit back and do nothing and scream about climate change …. and instead of putting up defences they spend the cash on windmills to keep their rich buddies rich instead of the crofter on the land …. funny that hey ?

  5. Now is the time to go hydrogen for power and transportation . Unlike oil the water is plentiful and free compared to oil . And to keep costs down use solar and wind power for the making of hydrogen from water . It could work easily .

  6. Geologists have a concept which they call "deep time."
    This means that geological time is so much greater than the lifetime of a human, or even of the human species, that outlandish analogies must be used to explain it.

    I have developed a concept that I call "Deep Stupid!"
    This is the kind of stupid that surpasses all ordinary human understanding. 
    There are some people who are so deeply stupid that nothing can persuade them otherwise. If such a person believes that 2+2=5, there is nothing you can do to convince them otherwise. 
    Or if you show them a banana, together with overwhelming evidence, they still see an apple!
    So it is with the Climate Crisis religion!

  7. The sea levels rise and fall, rise and fall, rise and fall, rise and fall, rise and fall. That’s the pattern BBC. But it’s our fault now. Those nasty humans trying to get rid of ginger people by making their habitat sink…….

  8. Im not a climate change denier but shit vids like this anoye me. Temps by satilite info have risen in the last 40.years by .0.4.c. ans sea levels have risen in the last 40.year less than the lenth of a finger nail.

  9. Oh but wait….climate change isn't real. Right? I mean that's what many say. Just like covid isn't a threat. A horse wears smaller blinders than some people. What the hell happened to common sense? If your outside and getting wet……it's probably raining. DUH.

  10. Lol with rising sea levels in the 'ring of fire'
    The extra weigh coupled with tidal action (like a sawing action like clockwork) with the weigh displacement on the Teutonic plates and uneven pressure on the oceanic side to the landmass side should make 'the big one' from California to Seattle much bigger and much better
    One to watch in the coming years

    I recommend you to watch every video start with 1 best. Then decide for yourself what you want to believe in. It doesn't matter who you are, how old you are, how you look, what race you have, what skin color, your social status, Man or Woman everything doesn't matter, it doesn't matter! This message is for everyone for all of humanity, to show you the truth. It's up to you if you can accept it. you have your own will and your heart no one controls it. Your decision is for you alone.

    You don't want to become a Muslim, even after you've watched all the videos no problem, you don't want to watch the videos no problem everyone can live as they want in islam there is no compulsion. but remember i bring you the truth to save you. on judgment day you will not be able to say no one cleared me up, no one told me the truth i was influenced oh please forgive me, but then it is unfortunately already too late because this life is a Test and it ends with your death. oh Allah forgive us guid us ….

    Important if you have a problem with that things, that i say. blame me not Islam. Islam is perfect i´m not. If you strugle with the qestion, why i waste my time for this videos or similar, dont lie to your self. you waste already your time. The first thing that the Devil try is to bring you away from the truth to his way.
    Example you watch films, series, something on TV, play games and other things that pass the time. that bring you fun, but not everything that is fun is good for you. in the end you lose time. so you could think of these videos from the links as a kind of series, wich is very exciting btw. and watch a video every day as an example, or every week as you like. in the end, even if you can't do anything with it, you have at least learned something about Islam one of the Bigest Religions in this world and the fast growing. And you really can't see that as a waste of time, can you? Why ? Because knowledge is power. but remember the Devil and his follower will try everything to keep you away from this knowledge and to distract you with worldly things.
    if you disagree with what I say and mark it as a lie prove to me that I am lying but pls watch first all videos that saves time.

    Of course you can make kritik on me, for my bad grammar and English skills. I know that im not good at this, but i hope i write it in a way, that you can it understand. Thats the important thing. I know that my brother dont make this mistakes he is a english,history teacher and make his Doctor and have much more knowledge than me. even at his acts he is better than me. Maybe he laugh when he se this and see how bad my english is haha i will laugh with him. The point is im not my brother he have also his mistakes, like me like you and every human being. Muslim, means,the one who submission to the will of allah. Not that you a perfect person.
    In the eyes of Allah it is important how you behave and decide wath in your heart is, and not your reputation, your knowledge, your appearance, even if you are a King who looks good, who knows a lot and does good. A person who has nothing, doesn't look good, has little knowledge and does good; can be much higher in the eyes of Allah.

    Example Even if I did not believe in Allah and his Prophet, I would have to admit to myself, after all the knowledge I have acquired about Islam and all the things I have seen and heard, that Islam is the most logical and best way for people , Animals and this world. Look at this beautiful world, how the animals, trees, all life lives in harmony with this planet and everything around this complex system that clearly comes in harmony and how balance this exists. And now look at the people we have Good and Bad , who are using this planet and acting in their favor, all of these bad qualities and not living in harmony. Where's The Justice, Why are it The people who don't belong here and seem out of place. If You Come with a open mind and heart you will see that Islam is the only logical way that gives you the answer. At the End you can belive in atheism, or evrey other Religion for me its fine i have also non Muslim Friends and i respect every human i dont want to hurt anyone its your choice no one can force you stay with love ^^.

    Do you accept islam, do not think that you have to change your life completely now everything comes with time inshallah

    Inshallah means, so Allah wants, because nothing happens without his will /The 99 Names of Allah.

    You only need take Shahada in Arabic and your language with full believe to become a Muslim: that is the seed that that you put. With time you give the seed water, thats the way .when you learn something ,thats your water, when you do something good ,thats your water, when you follow the rules of Islam thats your water, when you pray thats your water, that you give to the seed. So your seed grows slowy with this inshallah, you will become a flower. Wath happen when you stop giving water to a flower ? so dont stop 🙂 pray to allah guide me und you get never lost inshallah..

  12. I am 67 I live on one of the lowest islands in Scotland and you people have been pushing out the same old rubbish for 50 years. 20 years ago you told us we would all be under 10 feet of water by now.

  13. "In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill. In their totality and their interactions these phenomena do constitute a common threat which must be confronted by everyone together. But in designating these dangers as the enemy, we fall into the trap, which we have already warned readers about, namely mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are caused by human intervention in natural processes, and it is only through changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome. The real enemy then is humanity itself."

  14. Now the new president of US is a ten. The Trent(77) July 27(77) 30th Sunday of 1986. Trent 36(86) Holy God(86) 72786(30). Trent Donnel Montgomery (286) LaTrent Donnel Montgomery 23/3 7.666 so see reverse that the 46th president of the US is a oing of the ten kingdoms. Like my birthday is July 27(77) Trent(77) Christ exists(77) because I obviously exist. Here's the numerology read Revelations 17. Yea 7 6 10 gets me. Eunuch brook. The Holy Eunuch. Montgomery/Numerology. LaTrent is the beggar who saved the city(378) 27 new testament books 39 old testament 2×7×3×9(378) Happy holidays.

  15. “Obviously, it’s coming from climate change”… The sea level has risen by 20 cm in the last 120 years. How on Earth could this guy notice this?! Maybe you just strengthen the coastline?

  16. This is nonsense, ask any of the sea level experts, all of whom have now completely dissociated themselves from the IPCC, because they all say they can't be associated with their impossible predictions about rising sea levels. Look into the subject for yourself, when I did, after much study it became obvious that the whole anthropogenic climate change is a scam, you can even trace it back to published proceedings from the Club of Rome among other influences. Anybody who thinks extra CO2 is harmful to the environment displays their ignorance of the subject and their belief in propaganda.

  17. Amazing Testimony of God completely Curing
    Pancreatic Cancer!!!
    My name is Dae Gyung Kim. I am the head pastor
    of Sarang Jeil Church in Ban Weul Dong,
    Hwaseong city, Gyeongi province.
    Our church is part of The General Assembly
    of Presbyterian Church in Korea.
    I was diagnosed with the deadly pancreatic cancer.
    One morning I collapsed suddenly and was rushed
    to the S Hospital in Seoul.
    Doctors told me I should begin to make
    my funeral arrangements.
    The cancer cells had already spread
    throughout my lymph nodes,
    stomach and intestines,
    and brain so there was no chance for me to survive.
    I received a death sentence.
    But God healed me miraculously.
    Through earnest request I once again received
    a CT scan, an MRI, a spinal examination,
    a radiation examination, a blood test, etc.
    These detailed tests revealed
    that all the cancer cells
    had completely disappeared from my body.
    Doctors said that this was impossible
    and that it was a miracle.
    I did not even go through
    with the 36 chemotherapy treatments
    that doctors ordered me to have.
    But a medically impossible healing did happen to me.
    Only by God’s grace did I receive healing from cancer.
    I was given the gift to heal diseases through intercessory prayer.
    I want to upload my testimony to YouTube
    to be a witness to the living God’s power
    I recorded a short, two minute testimony in both Korean
    and English so that this truth could be proclaimed
    over the whole world.
    I’m so filled with thanks
    that I am using the comment section
    to let everyone know what I have experienced.
    Surely God the creator is alive
    and is in control of all things.
    Please watch this video
    and share it with people close to you
    and let them know that there is a way to live.
    For those who desire their illness to be healed,
    If you leave your prayer requests
    in the YouTube comment section of
    <Reverend Dae Kyung Kim healing prayer>.
    We will pray on your behalf every Sunday at 4PM.
    For English speakers,
    you may upload your prayer requests in English as well.
    I hope you live a long and healthy life
    and afterwards, we are able to meet in heaven.

    (Youtube search : Pancreatic Cancer Healing Testimony)

    If you request a healing prayer by comment,
    I will pray in order within 30 minutes.
    Please write your name along with the prayer topic.
    I call each and every one to pray.
    Please watch the healing testimony
    and YouTube video posted at the beginning
    of the comment and pray with faith.
    The healing prayer time starts at 4pm every week.
    It proceeds once a week at the same time in order.
    I will continue to pray for those who requested prayer even during the morning prayer time every day.
    Please pray with Amen as you listen to the healing prayer video every day.
    If you pray for not only yourself, but for other patients, you will be healed.
    My wife, Kim Myung-sook, was also cured of diabetes while praying with tears for curing the diseases of the saints.
    I believe that God will hear you
    if you repent of all sins and pray
    with a pure heart.
    Please recover your health and devote your life to the church
    you attend and live a blessed life.
    Healing is done by God..
