I've just listed this for sale in my Ebay store. It's a fantastic small-town usage.

Sent from Sandy Point (population 336 in 1935, now abandoned) to Robinson's (population 182 in 1935). The recipient, Rev. Butler, was living in Sandy Point in 1935, so he either moved, or sent it to "himself" via someone else in Sandy Point. The reverse shows three crisp strikes of small Robinson's cancel for MY 15 37

I am afraid there is a lot of "Sandy Point" around because Reverend Butler was a stamp and cover dealer and very prolific creator of covers during this period.

re: Small Town Usage 1937 Newfoundland Coronation FDC

I checked out Sandy Point, Newfoundland on Google and unless there is more than one, they call it a disappearing island. It is so close to sea level that the rising sea level will soon wipe it out. I think it's time for a lot of us to learn how to tread water! Supposedly in a few years Nova Scotia will be the third island province of Canada! By the way if you are one of the many who question climate change please do not send me angry responses, just make sure you know how to swim.

Former President Obama and his wife have just purchased a $14.8 million dollar ocean front home in Martha’s Vineyard last week, it sits less than 25 feet above current sea level. Either they do not mind having an underwater home or they must not believe in climate change. https://www.mercurynews.com/2019/08/23/photos-barack-and-michelle-obama-buying-marthas-vineyard-mansion-for-14-8m/

No one questions global warming or the rise of sea level. Mother nature has been at it for eons. Read up on the little ice age, realize that the glaciers melting in Greenland are exposing area that were inhabited in the not too distant past until the glaciers covered them. Google "the little ice age"

Upstate New York was under over a mile of ice only 10000 years ago and the drumlins, kames and kettles, and other unique geological features of our area were formed when the ice melted not too long ago.....

Mother nature is much more a factor in global warming (and cooling) than we are willing to acknowledge. Google "!800 and froze to death" (the year without a summer) to realize what nature can create.

re: Small Town Usage 1937 Newfoundland Coronation FDC

I'm not an expert and I don't believe in what I read on line - you can post anything, no matter how ridiculous and someone will believe it. But I saw a very reputable special on YouTube - can't remember exactly what it was, but it was something like "Nova". This was before all the talk on "global warming" and the speaker was mentioning that geologically speaking we should now be heading for a "mini ice age". Obviously that is not true any more. I also saw a history of Antarctic exploration where there was a small discussion at the end on the melting ice caps. We really are not talking inches any more, they are now talking feet when it comes to sea level rise. We supposedly have about ten years to get our act together or it will be too late to stop the problems from occurring. If I had kids or grand kids,I would be very concerned. And that's not even counting the many other problems we are causing, like our obsession with plastics. Like I said I am not a fanatic in any way, I just think that all of those scientists could not be wrong! I know this post will draw nasty comments but "c'est la vie"!

re: Small Town Usage 1937 Newfoundland Coronation FDC

The niavety, lack of knowledge and misunderstanding of modern mankind regarding the history of our solar system and this planet we inhabit is extraordinary. The destructive nature of our universe over the past few billion years made it unlikely Earth would survive it's formation and then evolve as an inhabitable planet at all, but it did. Earth's fragile existence today is a matter of geological and cosmological history. The scale of what Mother Nature can bring to bear on our planet really does make this talk of mankind caused ice ages and global warming comical. Just ask the next dinosaur you encounter!

There are just as many climate scientists who think the opposite, but that opinion does not fit the media's agenda (including politically leaning search engine companies, so even the searches we do come up skewed in one direction). I concur that simply reading/watching a few things is not nearly enough to speak intelligently on the topic. But if you invest a few hours of discovery you will find that this is about as far as it can be from 'settled science'.

I saw a San Diego zoo commercial the other day and the fellow stated that they were fighting to prevent all extinction. Wow. Yes, let's fight natural selection and evolution. The overwhelming majority of species on this earth since the beginning have become extinct (99.9% before human ever walked on earth).

And as Webpaper mentioned, this planet has gone through many, many periods of being a frozen ice ball, being a water planet, being much hotter than it is now. One single super volcano would throw us into a ice age for 100 years. Same for an asteroid hit. These events have happened multiple times before and will happen multiple times again.

Of course humans should attempt to live in harmony with the earth as much as possible. But the current fear mongering is silly. back in the 1970s when I was in college, the big fear mongering was that earth would run out of food, millions would be starving. Pollution would also scorch huge amounts of the land mass and water. The big push on many campuses was communes.

The predictions did not come true, communes were failures, But hey, one sure way to become a profit is to predict that bad things will happen; sooner or later you will always be proven correct.

The debate on climate change does not belong in this thread since no philatelic content at this point.

re: Small Town Usage 1937 Newfoundland Coronation FDC

I live in a country where the official Government line is that climate change doesn't exist at all.

Here's some philatelic content Happy

If the ocean levels keep rising, the following countries, and many more like them, will cease to be stamp-issuing entities in the not-too-distant future
