Your Fault: Nile River Delta Doomed From Sea Rise

If only you’d give up….nah, you know where that goes. Let’s ask what’s missing from this Washington Post doomy piece, which comes as 10K+ climate fanatics will be taking fossil fueled trips to the lovely vacation spot of Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt

Climate change and rising sea levels threaten the Nile River Delta

Thousands of acres of the Nile River Delta, an important farming area in Egypt, could be underwater by the end of the century, according to a new scientific report. The country’s leaders, who are hosting the COP27 climate change summit this month, hope other nations will help them avoid this disaster.

A quarter of the delta, which is on Egypt’s northern coast on the Mediterranean Sea, sits at or below sea level. A water-level increase of between 1 to 2 feet is likely by 2100, according to a recent report by an international group of scientists overseen by the Cyprus Institute’s climate and atmosphere research center and the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry. That rise will make thousands of acres unfit for living or farming, partly because of added salt from the seawater.

The area is home to some 40 percent of Egypt’s 104 million people and accounts for half of the country’s economy, according to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization. Farms and fisheries along the two Nile branches, Rosetta in the west and Damietta in the east, help feed the country and provide products for export.

Farmers there have tried to save the land from rising seas by bringing in tons of soil, raising beds and using fertilizer to undo damage from salt.

This piece is actually in the section called KidsPost, and, I guess the WP didn’t feel it necessary to include a relevant fact, namely, what is the sea rise now, and what has it been in the past? In fact, the only data I can find that has actual direct measurements is NOAA, which states the “relative sea level trend is 1.78 millimeters/year with a 95% confidence interval of +/- 0.37 mm/yr based on monthly mean sea level data from 1944 to 2006 which is equivalent to a change of 0.58 feet in 100 years.” That’s literally average for the Holocene era going back 8K years, after the big glacier melts raised the seas hundreds and hundreds of feet. Before that time, the Mediterranean was extremely low, which is how under sea salt mines were created. Why they found elephant bones under the Med way out from current land.

There’s nothing unusual going on, nothing that would be rock solid evidence that this is all Mankind’s fault. The cult doesn’t need it, though, because this is not a science.

    Can you present an alternative explanation for global warming?

    • Down on the Corner says:

      Hairy can you present definitive evidence the governments of the world are not making up the fact that the earth is really not warming but in fact they are just telling you that it is.

      How do you know? What facts do YOU have in YOUR POSSESSION that says the world is warming?

      Yes there is the internet and the government claiming it is so and we both know that GOVERNMENTS NEVER LIE!!!!!!!!!!!

      So please present YOUR evidence that it is warming that is not contained in falsified information deseminated by governments to CONTROL THE PEOPLE.

    The Earth has been heating and cooling all by itself for millions of years and humans have only been on it for a fraction of that time.

    The rich will be in the scoop up all of the coastal properties at a low price though, you can be sure of that.

    Carbon offset-can you provide an alternative explanation on why you keep pretending that you haven’t seen answers to your same repetitive question? If you’d like more reasons for warming I’d be happy to give you more, so you can pretend again at a later date that you haven’t seen them.
