Everyone Should Be Taking Fossil Fueled Climate Change Tourism Trips

This caught my interest from Tom Nelson’s site because it mentioned my home state

Fear and Loathing of Climate Change

Now that summer has come to a close and everyone is returning to their homes with tales of downing oyster shots and hiking the continental divide, I think it’s appropriate for me to share how I spent my summer vacation. I wasn’t jet skiing in Miami or visiting the coffee houses of northern Europe. I was doing what every good scientist should do is this day and age—climate change tourism. I was visiting a place that won’t be around 100 years from now. And I’ll be honest with you, it was awesome.

Where was this incredible vacation-land? The beaches of North Carolina, of course. North Carolina is rather notorious now for passing legislation that doesn’t allow for the consideration of sea level rise for ocean-side management. Which leads to oodles of lovely beach-front property built high on stilts, for seemingly mysterious reasons…totally unrelated to the ocean….

I wonder how people get around when engaging in “climate change tourism”? It would certainly be tough to walk or ride a bike all the way from the UC Museum of Paleontology in California to the NC, wouldn’t you say? The picture that accompanies the post says Oak Island, which is just south of Wilmington and Southport. Here’s comes some pesky data

.68 feet per century. Not exactly scary, and perfectly average for the last 7,000 years. One would think if this was a horrendous warm period the sear rise would be greater.

    So sick of these smarmy liberal ecology damaged minds and self called brainiacs.

    Until one of them can accurately and scientifically prove to me that the coastlines of oceanside countries have not had changes in their geography in the past 100,000 years, then they can go to hell.

    Until they can without a doubt tell us that there was never any natural change in land masses, earthquake driven, storm driven or whatever, then I call BS on their claims that man is responsible for the loss (called erosion) of coastlines, the directional changes of rivers, the drying up of lakes and river beds or any other naturally occurring phenomenon.

    OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG YOU ARE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!!!!

    I pledge in order to save Teach from the ravaging, rampaging, devastating, crushing, brutalizing, earth-shattering, life-ending onslaught of 2.07mm(+/-0.4mm) of sea level Encroachment per year, that I will stop using my ice maker during the winter.

    There. I’ve done my part.
    You can relax now Teach. I’ve saved you.

    Whoa Wicked- stop using the ice maker? That’s a bit rough don’t ye think. Teach- you could understand if I had a problem with stopping using my ice maker right? It’s not natural. Warm drinks? Nah, but I will stop using my air conditioner in winter, and the fans, and my car air conditioner as well.

    There. I’ve done my part too and Teach will not lose any sand under his toes on our account.

    Ok John and Zachriel. Step up. What will you three do to save Teach?
