    The climate change industry is big business. Researchers are paid to conduct studies and the money goes away if they report that there is nothing to report. Don't be a sucker.

    You called the NYT "reputable". They are not and I just provided you with an example.

    I think it's HIGHLY likely that his property will be enjoyed by wealthy people, including his grandchildren, for at least the next century.

    There are no lies in that article. Just because they, like the rest of the educated world, understand that warmer temperatures are causing ice to melt, it doesn't make them liars. You would like to deny global warming because of your propensity to believe any made up hogwash that comes down the pike if it's spewed by the Alt Right factotums. Gee, thanks for bringing me to this intellectually stimulating discussion, K9. I think I'm going to go wash my hair now.

    Claiming that the Keys are going under water due to "rising sea levels" is an absolute LIE.

    Why do you think erosion is a problem in the keys? What do you think the effects of sea level rise will be?

    As a surfer who lived six blocks from Ocean Beach in SF, I have seen the beach in 1960 at high tide and in 2019. The width of the beach is very much smaller today then when I lived and surfed there in the 60's and 70's.

    I have to agree, Martha's Vineyard is not a sandbar and rises to 311 feet AML. Obama made a good purchase. Key West on the other hand is only 18 feet AML so even a small rise will enable waves to erode it away.

    Well here is what was a street three months ago. It has been flooded for three months straight.

    So not a lie. You could get off your lazy stupd fiucking ass and go look. Go to the keys and see. Go to Miami and see it with your own eyes.
