Cities Are Doomed From Hotcoldwetdry Somewhere Between 87 and 2,187 Years From Now

Glad they have a really good margin of error. Let’s start with the first paragraph (via Tom Nelson)

(Huff Post) A new article in the prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), is headlined “The Multimillennial Sea-Level Commitment of Global Warming,” and it reports that because of carbon emissions that are virtually certain, on the basis of the lack of policy-response to global warming thus far, sea levels are now set to rise anywhere from around 8 inches to 7 feet within 100 years, and around 5 yards to 10 yards within 2,000 years. The projections are clearer (within a narrower range) for the longer time-frame than for the shorter one. That’s because even if the short-term consequences of heat-rise turn out to be relatively slight, the longer-term consequences are clearer, and will be considerably larger, as delayed impacts kick in.

I already discussed this silliness and unscientific scaremongering prognostication previously, but I wanted to point out the “hey, we’re kinda unclear what will happen soon (because you might remember our predictions), but way on down the road? We nailed it!” idiocy

So, somewhere in time between, say, the years 2100 and 4200, such cities as Boston, NYC, etc., will be uninhabitable. They will be past history. It’s an interesting thought, perhaps – but just a curiosity that’s heavily discounted, so it’s not actually being given much thought. Perhaps it’s not given even as much thought as the beef that a person consumes, which had been a cow a few days before. After all, that beef has a taste, which is enjoyed now. The future is “just the future” — and it’s discounted at compounded annual rates.

If we go by the latter date, the Earth will have gone through multiple warm and cool periods, based on historical patterns. Anyhow, if this is what Warmists think is “clearer” in the long term, yikes!

    HEY GC,, here’s another case of changing definitions. Now that their cult is crumbling like a sugar cube in hot coffee, they have to completely reverse all logic.

    We have no idea what will happen 80 years from now, but 2100 years from now? you bet, we got that nailed. And again, another report citing an ever increasing temperature increase. huh. strange.

    Oh, weird. And their saying it is all because of carbon emissions. Funny that. So, eating a hamburger today, will cause Boston to be underwater in 2,000 years. Or 87. Because the problem is COMPOUNDED! Unlike our savings accounts.

    So.. we need to give up Boston to save Boston.
