Re: “Sea level rise is already changing our lives

Watch Cowspiracy, All politicians are in it to line their pockets. What are you doing to reverse your so called "Climate Change"? Why did you not mention the amount of political contributions made on behalf of special interest groups. Politicing is more powerful than facts or science. Follow the money

"Sorry naysayers but they just don't all make this stuff up. Its not a scientific conspiracy."

When one's entire worldview can be repeatedly disproved by this thing we call reality, everything is a conspiracy.

Re: “Sea level rise is already changing our lives

I don't think people will desert Charleston (and if they do, fine. We're overcrowded anyway). However I do think a lot of people have their heads in the sand. You can use interactive maps to see which parts of Charleston will be underwater in 50 years even at the low end of predicted sea level rise. I've yet to see real estate prices in those areas take a hit. It's strange to think of people taking out 30 year mortgages on houses that may be flooded before they are paid off.

Where are the people who used to say cigarettes don't cause lung cancer? Did they all die off, or are they now the ones saying scientists don't know squat about the climate?

Re: “Sea level rise is already changing our lives

I am choosing science. I like facts vs opinion. The data from brew above is based on fact not on the "what me worry" ostrich method of viewing the world. Sorry naysayers but they just don't all make this stuff up. Its not a scientific conspiracy.

Try again, Nathan.

This isn't a political thing. Most of the climatologists on this planet agree on what's happening. When the arctic is decreasing 5x faster than the antarctic is increasing, it is clear that the water is going somewhere. That, on top of the numerous data points we have on ocean levels around the planet, more than sum up the average trend. Sea levels are currently rising, and have been doing so for decades. Most studies show this to be increasing. We don't know if there is a stabilization point, but we have a data to show the negative impacts of the current trend. We can bury our heads in the sand and listen to scientifically illiterate politicians, or we can listen to actual scientist and prepare for the outcomes of the current trend.

Fear mongering. The sea isn't rising, Charleston is sinking. http://www.weather.com/news/climate/news/a…

Re: “Sea level rise is already changing our lives

I apologize for hurting your feelings, Showmoor. That was not my intention. I was just genuinely curious. It won't happen again.

Please let me know if you'd like me to take you out for breakfast to make amends.

Re: “Sea level rise is already changing our lives

Not strange at all- The tides rise and fall anywhere from four to seven+ feet depending on the moon phase, time of day, and winds.
They also did this 100 years ago, with an average of about 9 inches less.

Re: “Sea level rise is already changing our lives

Strange but I have seen 60-100 year old photos of the Charleston Battery and the water level seems no higher today than in the old photos. Can any one explain that to me.

Re: “Sea level rise is already changing our lives

Never listen to limbaugh. Obviously you have no relevant comments. But since I disagree you find it relevant to post immature rebuttals. Now you can laugh because I said re butt al.

You speak about adapting, Showmoor; have your knees adapted to the hardwood floors of Rush Limbaugh's home office?

""Low info voters, do you mean the ones who voted for the the president with the worst foreign policy ever?"

W was a Republican."

Those two statements are mutually exclusive.

Re: “Sea level rise is already changing our lives

Then I suppose we'll have to adapt. You do believe in evolution, don't you? Low info voters, do you mean the ones who voted for the the president with the worst foreign policy ever? Those were democrats, not republicans or independents.

Re: “In South Carolina, sexualized politics spreads like a disease

A sorry history indeed. But voters here continue to be suckers for it. As mountains of money pile up in Superpacs and third party groups, we're going to see more and better funded smear campaigns that candidates will claim thery're not connected with. I just hold whatever candidates that benefit responsible and assume their friends are doing their dirty work for them.

Re: “In South Carolina, sexualized politics spreads like a disease

"Moredock: hater of all things white, male, and Southern."

God forbid someone take an honest look at the South and bring to light hard truths that have to be faced if this region ever has a shot at not being the laughing stock of the rest of the country and world. The persecution complex white males from the South employ, and their petulant regressive behavior - lashing out like wounded animals when things don't go their way - is something that needs to be consistently examined and exposed.

I don't think Will Moredock hates white male Southerners, even though there are centuries of actions that could justify such hate. And when he criticizes establishment behaviors, it is not out of some psychological self-loathing. It is because white male Southerners constantly give example after unabashed example of behaviors worthy of scorn. Don't blame Moredock. Blame the source material.
