Rising Seas Are Totally Claiming California’s Coastline (In The Future)

California Submerged: Rising Seas are claiming its famed coast faster than scientists imagined

A slow-moving emergency is lapping at California’s shores— climate-driven sea-level rise that experts now predict could elevate the water in coastal areas up to 10 feet in just 70 years, gobbling up beachfront and overwhelming low-lying cities.

The speed with which polar ice is melting and glacier shelves are cracking off indicates to some scientists that once-unthinkable outer-range projections of sea rise may turn out to be too conservative. A knee-buckling state-commissioned report warns that if nothing changes, California’s coastal waters will rise at a rate 30 to 40 times faster than in the last century.

The potential result: crippled economies, compromised public safety, submerged infrastructure, and a forced retreat from our iconic Pacific coast.

It goes on and on and on and on. All based on “we feel” and models and the normal. Virtually every long term measurement from California is below 2mm a year, well below what the average should be. We’re to believe that, suddenly, in 50 years, we could see up to 10 feet of sea rise? Bitch, please.

    The point being, the continued increased rates of melting of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets will lead to greater water volume in the oceans.
