Just to sort out who I am dealing with here;

What amont of heat do you think is going into the oceans?

How much temperature change does that result in? And at what depth?

What level of thermal expansion does that result in?

Basic stuff I could do when I did A level physics in high school. Can you do this sort of maths? No algebra required. If not then why do you think you can talk about it?

Which people where do you think are going to be displaced by what level of sea level rise over what time period?

I still have not received a answer to a question I have raised many times.

Why hasn't the tide mark on my pier and boat ramp not changed in 30 years?

There is an answer to this presented in the form of a question.

Are you going to believe those that have studied this and made a living on that study or are you going to believe your own, lying, eyes?

Seriously, what possible weight can anyone give to things that are obvious?

no one is denying that the climate is changing, what we're in disagreement over is the cause of the change. why the left is hell-bent on regulating our industry out of existence was once beyond me, but now i realize it's just another way they get more people dependent on big government.

Oh yeah???
Well as it happens, subsidence is ALSO caused by global warming! So there.
Why???
Because you see, when we, um ... that is, if you, uh ... it's all tied in with ... ah nevermind.

Finally stumped, I see. This is what happens when non-scientists try to do real science. I'll clue you in. There's a consensus among scientists who actually know this ****. That's why. Ta da. If you have cracks in the foundation of your house it's differential subsidence in most instances, and caused by AGW. If you convert to a zero emissions life, the cracks will go away. Ta da, again.

Considerably more of a scientist than Bill Nye.

Sep 10, 2012 - I have been studying manmade global warming/climate change/climate disruption/insert latest catch-name here for a decade or two.

Sorry... The guy says he 'studies it' and that makes him a scientist?

And another guy actually sits on boards that determine scientific grants, helps direct the Mars landings, yet isn't as much of a scientist?

Maybe because yer blind, which explains yer use of large font


On May 6, the Obama administration released the third National Climate Assessment, and President Obama proclaimed climate change no longer a theory; its effects, he said, are already here. This came as no surprise in Norfolk, where normal tides have risen 1 1/2 feet over the past century and the sea is rising faster than anywhere else on the East Coast.
