One In 10 Florida Homes Could Be Doomed From Sea Rise Or Something

This is your fault NBC2’s fault, for refusing to give up their use of fossil fueled vehicles to gather the news, and all the electricity used to broadcast the news

Rising seas threaten Florida, and there’s little action from Rick Scott or Tallahassee

One out of 10 Florida homes could be subject to almost daily flooding by the end of the century, according to a new report by The Union of Concerned Scientists.

The culprit is rising sea levels resulting from climate change.

The report suggests Florida stands to be affected more than any other state.

Predictions by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration show up to 6.5 feet of sea level rise by 2100.

An increase of that magnitude would cost billions of dollars to the state and local governments in lost property values.

Yet, surprisingly, people keep buying homes at the beach, including climate change big wigs.

But, really, this avoids actual data. Here’s Naples, which NBC2 covers

That’s a whole lot less than 6.5 feet in the next 82 years, eh? And the rest of the Florida stations are similar. I wonder why the Credentialed Media never offers any actual readings? Key West goes back to 1913, and shows .79 feet per 100 years. Inconvenient.

    Scientists are calculating that the melting of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets will accelerate based on projected global warming. In addition, the thermal expansion of sea water and melting glaciers will continue.

    A complete melting of the Greenland ice sheet (1-2 miles thick) would cause a 20 ft increase in sea levels, but would take a few centuries. The Antarctic ice sheet holds enough water to increase sea levels some 200 ft, but would take several centuries, if not millennia to melt.

      Again, little jeffery lyinn keene of st. louis is pulling fantasies out of his ass.
      Just making up shit as he goes along.
      Easy to mock lIke most libs.

      Melting has nothing to do with temp and is caused by geothermal activity. Keep lying Jeff.

  2. Jl says:

    Yes, maybe the Ice can melt on Greenland to where they can grow crops again like they did in the past-in other words, when it was warmer. Meanwhile, Greenland is doing just fine. https://realclimatescience.com/2018/06/summer-arrives-greenland-continues-to-gain-ice/

  3. Jeffery says:

    The Greenland ice sheet is some half a million year old, so it’s unlikely that all of Greenland was ever farmed or “green”. Vikings settled the coasts during the North Atlantic Medieval Climate Anomaly (aka MWP) but were forced out centuries later with the return of the colder temperatures. The average global surface temperature during the MWP was lower than today, although the North Atlantic was likely warmer than now.

      The average global surface temperature during the MWP was lower than today

      That statement is so packed with fudge it ought to live in San Francisco.

      • Jeffery says:

        The Earth continues to warm.

        • david7134 says:

          Wrong.

            Is this a new Z??? It is about time for a change with the new school term. Your graft shows nothing, and you have been using it for several years, get a new file.

          • Zachriel says:

            Handwaving doesn’t refute evidence. You said that the Earth is not warming. We provided multiple data-sources, satellite and surface, that say otherwise.

          • Jeffery says:

            Hi dave,

            By every known measure (surface and satellite) the Earth is warming about 0.15-0.20 degrees C per decade over the past 30 years. In the past decade it’s warmed 0.3 to 0.4 degrees C. Do you have evidence to refute that?

          • drowningpuppies says:

            By every known measure (surface and satellite)

            However,

            “Since there is no universally accepted definition for Earth’s average temperature, several different groups around the world use slightly different methods for tracking the global average over time, including:
            NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies
            NOAA National Climatic Data Center
            UK Met Office Hadley Centre

            We are told, in plain language, that there is no accepted definition for Earth’s average temperature, but assured that it is scientifically tracked by the several groups listed.

            It may seem odd to the scientifically-minded that Global Average Temperature is measured and calculated to the claimed precision of hundredths of a degree Celsius without first having an agreed upon definition for what is being measured.

          Z,
          No, you don’t have evidence of anything, you have zero evidence of contributions of CO2, you have no evidence that world communism will correct your imaginary problem. Are you given a script whenever you change people each semester? Come up with something more original. Also, zero programs from your religion have shown any predictability over 30 years.

          • Zachriel says:

            david7134: No, you don’t have evidence of anything

            Sure we do. We provided evidence that the Earth’s surface and lower atmosphere are warming. Saying “Is not!”, even if you repeat yourself, is not much of an argument.

          • david7134 says:

            Z,
            Same trash site the other zs go to. You have nothing. I don’t generally exchange comments with children unless they show some intelligence. So don’t bother with a reply.

          • drowningpuppies says:

            So far the kiddiez have relied on their same old go-to memes:

            same old meaningless graphs
            “hand waving’… when they do it all the time
            Saying ‘is not’… when they do it all the time
            We provided “evidence”… when they didn’t

            Always the same old predictable arguments.

            Ah. Are you saying that Wikimedia is misrepresenting the data from UAH? Let’s check, shall we?

            UAH: Monthly Global Lower Troposphere v6.0 Anomaly

            No. The data matches. That can’t be it. Do you identify an error in UAH’s satellite data?

    But as shown many times, as warm or warmer during MWP. http://pages.science-skeptical.de/MWP/MedievalWarmPeriod.htmx

    My plan is to kick all the yankees and other undesirable turd worlder’s out of Central Florida. Move them all to Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade Counties.

    Then there will be plenty of room along the Mid-Florida ridge for the rest of us.

    Ideally, those three counties will sink. No big loss.

      That’s the problem. What is so bad about all the liberal on the coast being under water? Sounds like an answer to a prayer.
