if Ice melts in a cup full of water will the cup flood the table it's sitting on?
Mother Nature is a fickle bitch... Things have been changing since 5 minutes after the beginning of time... Don't like the way things are, just wait awhile things will change...
I didn't hear them lying anywhere, K9. I read your article, too, which talks about erosion, not flooding. The erosion of beaches is a big deal down there, where tourism is king. Saving beaches is important. I don't understand what makes you think that erosion of a beach would cause a strip of road to flood at high tide each winter? If you read the article, there is no doubt that the ocean is beginning to creep back over the Keys. That is not caused by erosion. Coastal cities everywhere are seeing it.
Hilarious. I used to have trouble understanding that attitude but I now realise it comes from the marriage of Christianity to American nationalism, in which science is considered to part of 'the left's' attack on American values. This article False Idol -- Why the Christian Right Worships Donald Trump was an eye opener, I see it reflected everywhere in this forum.
You worship government and believe whatever they tell you - sucker.
Do you realize that the second graph kills the AGW theory? The graph shows a fairly consistent rise in sea levels since 1880, and who knows about the previous 100 years. AGW theory claims an acceleration of sea levels due to increased CO2 from humans. According to the graph and AGW theory, CO2 levels have been increasing consistently since 1880 which we all know is false.
Yea? When are they going to be flooded by, 2160?
If that was your attempt at an explanation for why erosion causes repeated flooding, I think you failed.
What everyone should know is that if all the ice on LAND (Antarctica, Greenland, mountain glaciers around the world) were to melt, sea level would rise about 70 meters (230 feet). The ocean would cover all the coastal cities. And land area would shrink significantly.
Erosion eats away at the bottom, drags dirt and sand out to sea which then undermines that which is above it and causes it to collapse and flood.
Is it your belief that the Gulf of Mexico has risen 3-5 feet in recent years?
