Trump’s Hotcoldwetdry Clashes With Florida Sea Rise Or Something

No, seriously. Sea rise totally proves that people using lots of energy to publish newspapers, along with all the fossil fuels to gather the news and distribute the dead tree editions, is obviously the only reason the seas are rising

Trump’s climate science denial clashes with reality of rising seas in Florida

By Donald Trump’s account, scientists have tricked Americans into accepting that global warming is caused by the burning of fossil fuels.

“I’m not a big believer in man-made climate change,” he told the Miami Herald on one of the rare recent occasions when he has talked about it.

A few blocks from the Miami Beach hotel where Trump spoke, water flooded over a seawall last year during the highest autumn tides, blocking traffic on one of South Florida’s main evacuation routes. The city is now elevating that street and many others as part of a $500-million program to protect itself from the rising ocean.

The rest of the article is exactly what you would expect, lots of whining about consensus, followed by the notion that the seas are rising in Florida and causing flooding, and due to Cult of Climastrology logic, it is all Mankind’s fault. Because it never happened before

Damned early men and their carbon pollution 20,000 years ago. Look what they caused!

Anyway, NOAA hasn’t had a working gauge in Miami Beach since 1981. According to a University of Miami study, sea rise has gone from 3mm to 9mm since 2006. What does this prove? Nothing. It is not proof of anthropogenic causation. And all the doomsaying sure doesn’t seem to be causing developers, builders, and buyers from stopping developing, building, and buying homes right on the coast.

Oh, and you only get that 9mm mark, which would equate to 35 inches per century, you have to cherry pick.

Oh, and for all the whining by the LA Times, the gauge for L.A. shows a whopping .95mm per year, which equates to .31 feet per century.

    Not only that but the east coast is sinking. Geologically speaking the entire east coast of the USA is sinking.

    The New York Times has a frightening overview of the latest science on sea level rise — specifically, the threat it poses to the United States. The consensus is that, yes, the U.S. is at risk; the East Coast in particular. But surprisingly, it’s not just rising tides that we have to watch out for — it’s sinking land. From the Times:

    Regardless of the cause, scientists appear convinced that the flooding and coastline damage is happening now, and on a rapid time scale: as in, faster than new homeowners could hope to pay off their mortgage.

    Once again the CO2 related Hydra can be explain Geologically.

  2. Liam Thomas says:

    Oh and by the by….what happens when you sink a land mass the size of the EAST COAST into a confined body of water?


    That would be a rise in the sea level.

    Just thought you might like to know John while your making preparations to buy Land in the norther Rockies.

    Teach in the article that you cited the authors claim that the warmists were cherry picking BY ONLY USING THE MOST RECENT MEASUREMENTS wtf?

  4. john says:

    Teach wasn’t the melting of the glaciers already determined to be due to orbital changes that resulted in more sunlight hitting the Northern Hemisphere?
    Do you think that is what is causing the Polar Ice Cap to melt now?

    Damned early men and their carbon pollution 20,000 years ago.

    The transition from the latest glacial period to the current interglacial (Holocene) was not caused by an increase in human-generated CO2. In contrast, the current period of rapid warming is being caused by human-generated CO2.

  6. Liam Thomas says:

    From a geologist perspective what happens when the glaciers melt?


    Well since Im sure that our residents who preach the AGW were all gonna die meme have no clue….

    I shall enlighten.

    When the glaciers melt….It reveals more land mass.

    What does land mass and solar radiation have in common?

    What happens when Ice continues to melt and reveals tundra which are huge, ginormous sinks for CO2?

    To sum it up.

    1. Solar Radiation increases.
    2. Ice melts.
    3. CO2 is released
    5. The specific heat capacity of water (denoted as “s”) is 4.184 kJ/Kg*C
    6. The specific heat capacity of a typical soil is around 0.84 kJ/Kg*C

    So to those who do not understand the math it takes 3x the amount of radiant heat to heat up water vs heating up a typical land mass.

    This in effect is why the planet is continuing to warm…..As it continues to warm it continues to release more and more co2 for various reasons but the most likely scenario is that we have razed the amazon rain forest which would sink billions of tons of c02 but instead by razing this forest we have induced billions of tons of co2 into the air and greatly hindered the ability of this forest to sink co2.

    Additionally we have seen the receding glaciers expose more and more sinked co2 that is being released daily into the atmosphere. This co2 was previously sinked and covered by ICE until it melted.

    So in short…….co2 is indeed increasing via a myraid of causes….ONE of which is the use of fossil fuels…but its much more important to note that the planet is heating up as much from the razing of the rain forest which are quite aptly called the LUNGS of the PLANET and the fact that more and more land mass is exposed to the sun creating additional warming.

    Combine that with an almost continuous El NINO event in the pacific and we certainly have the recipe for a warming planet.

    If the AGW groupies want to solve the problem….Begin with the razing of the rain forests and the demand for safer production of fertilizers and pesticides…

    And then you might actually get somewhere in reducing the CO2 foot print on this planet…..Nations and Businesses and corporations are already trying to ease their carbon footprint which is doing NO good……

    Gee I wonder why that could be.
