New York submerged in the future

Well I made a mistake by pushing the wrong key on my PC...

Ok I found this article about climate change affecting NYC and it's not funny:

he report warns that, under global warming conditions, Irene-like storms of the future could put a third of New York City streets under water and flood many of the tunnels leading into Manhattan in less than an hour.

It's a study made by scholars at Cornell University. Probably something we already know, but now it's backed by a scientific research:

More than 50 scientists worked three years to complete the study, which is intended to send a wake-up call to residents, urban planners, water resource managers and businesses with a simple message: New York must begin now to adapt to a warming climate over the coming decades.


Well, let's start preparations....

The nay-sayers will claim the 50 scientists are liars who doctored their findings, then citing other researchers who claim global warming, future climate predictability is all a pack of lies.

With all the self interest relating to most everything these days the general public is left scratching their heads wondering who or what to believe. All the while the rich get richer and the average guy on the street keeps buying electronic toys, new gas guzzling behemoths, drugs, booze, loose women, bigger this, faster that, etc. to dull the pain of life !!!

As Popeyes used to say "I wonders what the poor people are doing?"

Too bad there is no human caused global warming.
My prediction is that global temperatures will fall over the next 10-20 years.

Anyone who researched the past will discover that such warming periods are most likely natural, since this has happened time and time again over the last thousands of years and the current warming period coincidence with a grand solar maximum that has not been matched since 8000~ years ago.

If you look at the trend for last thousands of years then it looks like we are moving towards a ice age.

What we are experiencing now is nothing more than weather, since climate cycles work in cycles that last for decades-century.
