Warmists Scaremonger Over A Flooded DC, People Wonder Why This Would Be Bad

The cult is at it again with their un-scientific photoshops

From the cult screed

The Lincoln Memorial, on an island surrounded by churning Potomac waters; Nationals Park, a bathtub surrounded by mid-rise office buildings flooded by the Anacostia River; the Pentagon, accessible by boat, with State Route 110 and the George Washington Memorial Parkway underwater.

These are images of the possible climate-change-induced future in D.C., if the world continues on its current trajectory of greenhouse gas emissions.

The decision that we’re all making right now is which trajectory we’re going to take,” says Andrew Pershing, director of climate science with the nonprofit Climate Central. The group published a peer-reviewed research paper documenting the longterm threat that sea-level rise poses to the world’s coastal cities. As part of the project, the group generated images of at-risk cities around the globe, with projections of future sea-level rise, depending on emissions trajectories. (snip)

D.C. doesn’t face the same sort of risk from sea-level rise as cities closer to the ocean, but the District’s two rivers, the Potomac and the Anacostia, are both tidal within the city limits, meaning they are directly influenced by the ocean’s tides and level.

OK, so this is from the same silly project I mentioned last week, which is still silly and unscientific, but, DCist is attempting to scare the citizens in D.C. and the surrounding areas. The article included the Pentago

The Pentagon is 24 meters above sea level, which is 78 feet. This is not science. You can check the topographic map yourself.

This didn’t get the response they thought, with ones like

  • Can we get all of DC submerged? Because I’m all for that.
  • Promise?
  • See there is good news about Washington DC
  • …I’m rooting for climate change now.
  • I mean…..I’m cool with this.
  • I won’t stop burning tires until I see Nancy Pelosi dog-paddling to the Capitol building

Well, that would be difficult, since the Capitol Building is 141 feet above sea level, plus height of building to submerge. The White House is 75 feet plus HOB. IRS Building just a little lower than the White House. DC is 419 feet at its highest. This is all just cultish pseudoscience with some doomsday thrown in.

    I see the great leftist pig Alec Baldwin finally stepped up and murdered someone. In what seems to be the “new” demofascist style set by Michael Byrd when he murdered the unarmed Ashli Babbitt at a protest, Baldwin blew away Halyna Hutchins on the set of his new movie. I didn’t know this douche bag still was making movies. Are we back in 1985? This prick is a nasty has been. Now he can join the growing club of radical left wing America haters who commit horrendous crimes and walk away. Cause “equal justice” is a two tier system if you’re a junta joe supporter (or Donald Trump hater).

    Stately Pico Manor sits comfortably at 630 feet above sea level; we shall be fine!

    The weak-minded left seem to think that it doesn’t matter how much they exaggerate, people will believe them. The truth is that only the weak-minded do, and being weak-minded, they are already leftists.

    If they just told the truth, without exaggeration, maybe more people would take them seriously. Then again, if they actually practiced what they preached, more people would take them seriously.

    • The cultists broadcasting this know that the base Warmists won’t research, and, that the media won’t bother checking this stuff. It literally took me all of 2 minutes to find a good topographic website for DC, to see how much BS this was
