"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?"
I don't know where they went, but their lobbyists now work for the fossil fuel companies, and use the same tactics that they did with tobacco to instill doubt in the weak minded.
lucy, I am not usually one to respond to mindless trolls, but are you really serious? I assume you don't believe in AGW, as you called it "your" climate change. Science and facts are all I care about, and they all show that this is happening. Right now. As a scientist, your insinuation that most of the the global climatologists are lying and fudging data for money is insulting to me. Sorry, that is bullsh*t.
"Follow the money"
Take your own advice. Personally, I have worked in the world of petroleum fuels. It is doubtful any other industry has more lobbying power than oil and gas. The fact that you ask what we are doing to reverse climate change tells me about all I need to know about you scientific literacy.
How much money did Mrs. Clinton say she would send to all those countries that "we" made suffer because of rising seas? 100 billion. Yearly. Wow! Glad she's got plenty of money. What?
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.
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.

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.
Heh heh heh Prong. He said butt.
Fear mongering. The sea isn't rising, Charleston is sinking. http://www.weather.com/news/climate/news/a…
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.
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.
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.
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.
Trench out the streets. Add gondola's. Call downtown mini- Venice.
"Low info voters, do you mean the ones who voted for the the president with the worst foreign policy ever?"
W was a Republican.
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.
