Cheeto candidate's plan for slowing sea level rise: take boats out of the water

Troll science trying to Trump real science

First off, the world's oceans are big.  Like really big.  You won't believe how vastly, mind-boggling big they are.  Ships - not so much.  Sure, a 50ft yacht sounds big, but its displacement is just peanuts compared to the breadth and depth of oceans.  You know what's waaay bigger than boats?  Glaciers.  Tundra.  Antarctica.

Secondly, for obvious reasons, cold stuff is smaller than warm stuff.  I won't get into the math, just fill up a cup with ice and leave it out overnight if you're curious.

Basically, this guy is a lunatic who shouldn't be eligible to run for student body president, let alone serious political office.

Ah-ha! If we get rid of tundra and Antartica, the sea level will go down then! We could also put New Zealand on Australia as well.

Checkmate, hippies.

It bothers me that someone who legit thinks global warming could be fixed in such infantile, simplistic ways could plausibly be convinced that the continents and islands rest on top of the water like gigantic rafts.

One of my sons was talking about how a US Senator was being briefed about the landing of many aircraft on Guam for some military activity, and asked if the added weight wouldn't cause it to tip over. I guess by the time one makes it to General in the USAF, they've pretty much heard it all, because the general replied, "We don't anticipate that that will be a problem". The cheeto's  hench(wo)men could share adjacent cells, I'm hoping.
