More fearmongering from the Global Warming/Climate Change cult. It makes the mind weary.
Oh wait, I know! Let's pay more taxes! That'll fix it!


Nasa: Consensus
Consensus: 97% of climate scientists agree

Ninety-seven percent of climate scientists agree that climate-warming trends over the past century are very likely due to human activities,1and most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position.


Nasa: Causes
Most climate scientists agree the main cause of the current global warming trend is human expansion of the "greenhouse effect"1 -- warming that results when the atmosphere traps heat radiating from Earth toward space.

Is it related to the sun?
Nope:

You can BET the Navy is watching what is going on with climate change, and they have NO REASON to lie about it.

Anybody know why the great lakes region isn't affected by this? I would think they would be under water as much as the east Atlantic coast.


Why? Where do you think the water from the Great Lakes comes from.....it's Fresh Water. If anything, I would expect the GL to fill faster from runoff from Central Canada but that would only mean the route to the ocean would be more rapid. Maybe a little localized lake expansion, but not much. Niagara Falls however, would be even more impressive.

All of this is a moot point, Doom porn for those that get off on it. Bunch of Glass half empty Chicken Littles if you ask me.

What we call Arizona Bay, will be even closer. Rocky Point will be gone. Palo Verde Bay, will be my next home...

Yes indeed I was thinking about the same thing, I imagine that most have been just like that when the dinosaurs rule the earth, weather was steamy warm and with lots of lush forest dense air.

Given the state of our current winter conditions, I'm not in the least bit concerned.

Thank you for sharing, especially the video of the Rear Admiral 's presentation. I hope he and Winston Churchill are correct in that we will do the right thing after exhausting all other possibilities...or before.

Our footprint need not remain so heavy. Climates will change even without us over the long term, but our efforts should be towards minimizing the impacts we do that are causing acceleration in climate changes in the short and longer term.

Very informative video from a man who has earned his stripes. Salute and thank you again for your post.

Our love for beaches not withstanding.

Peace.

Map is not correct, take a look at the South West UK on - Map2 - and according the photo such is not affeted, yet such is at present Flooded because of normal sea levels etc.

As a person living in the Sonoran desert, the "Arizona Bay" will become much closer. Good times...

Let's put that into perspective though:

Climatism.net


As you can see, through out the past thousand years, this appears to be a process that our planet does naturally.

I can't really tell where I am. I'm either under water or getting a new beach front property.

As a rule, I'm never in the floodplain map, but I do border it. Beside a river., higher elevation .
Where are the rivers and small lakes in theses maps? Do they dry up?


Florida has gone! Is that the sinkholes attributing to that?

Do a little research on the “friends of science”, you'll be disappointed. They are nothing more then the front men for Talisman Energy and Imperial Oil, and their credentials are very questionable. On the other hand, I see no reason why groups like NASA, NOAA, or the USN would lie about it. The USN has a vested interest in keeping up on this, as all their assets are at sea level.

If you notice the last two hundred years are smacked so tightly up to the right side of the chart that you can hardly see it. However, notice that its a straight up line during that time. There are no other straight peaks like that on the rest of the chart. Funny how that sudden rise coincides with the industrial revolution.

Here, let me zoom it in for you:

If it might be helpful...I've used both the NatGeo map and this next one in my own writing and material relating to climate change.

World Flood Simulator

I think the problem with the NatGeo one is two fold... One, it assumes a total, global melt of every bit of ice on the surface of our planet. Literally, that is what it requires to see over 200 foot sea level rise ..and Antarctica comprises the vast majority of that.

Problem is..Antarctica is both shrinking and growing in ice at the same time, depending on which end of the continent and what aspect of the ice one is looking at. It's a land mass larger than the United States...so refering to it as "a mass" is kinda like saying a raging storm in Florida or a drought in California has direct and cause/effect relation to a condition 3,000 miles away on the other side of the nation ..except distances and isolation factors are greatly multiplied there.

The second problem is what they both share and someone else mentioned. LONG LONG before we saw all 200 foot of Sea Level rise, we'd see a catastrophic shift in salinity of the oceans and that, by itself, would bring far worse to our little rock than new shorelines. That great engine of weather for Earth...the oceans...would fundamentally break before our very eyes ..or shift in a way that wouldn't work well for humans anymore, IMO.

Anyway... The biggest thing is that the second map above allows adjustment of the flood level to view what it actually does to coastlines around the world. The data is sourced from NASA

What's not factored in is the fact that the Earth's crust at the bottom of the Oceans are the thinnest parts of the Earth's crust--- when more water is added, the sea level will rise but the Ocean bottom will also stretch and become deeper as the Oceanic Plates sink into the Mantle.

Also... when the Ice melts on Antarctica the Land once beneath a few miles of heavy ice will likewise spring up with all that weight gone.
The same physics applies to Siberia, Alaska, Greenland and other ice heavy parts of the Arctic which would be ice free,,

So i contend that the sea level rise would be less significant than the pictured model
which evidently does not factor in the elasticity of the Earth's crust...
((...i also suppose that as a result of the Ocean Floor sinking deeper into the Mantle, there would undoubtedly be even more and even larger lava flows on the Earth land surface (maybe that is what is currently happening with this last decade of above average eruptions of long dormant volcanoes...the result of global sea floor sinking from a greater volume of water...))

You really don't? What about more taxes? Justification for world population reduction? Orwellian societies where all resources are controlled by a handful of "qualified" corporations?

Yes, I believe we should reduce pollution. Yes, I believe in the electric car. But I don't believe that science should be in the hands of politicians or their military. These hands have a very strong tendency to bend anything to their favor.

And what about this?
