Re: “Sea level rise is already changing our lives

"and with all the extra weight and the area that has been built on will at some point sink that land . I don't think that the water is rising all that much as the land is sinking from all the weight and the destruction of the Natural run-off from rains ."

Mr. Clarkie, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. ... I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul...

Re: “Sea level rise is already changing our lives

Has anyone noticed how much Building has been done in the past 70 or 100 years just on the east coast ? How about in the state of Florida ? That state is at sea level anyway. and with all the extra weight and the area that has been built on will at some point sink that land . I don't think that the water is rising all that much as the land is sinking from all the weight and the destruction of the Natural run-off from rains . Heavy rains back up today more so than they did decades ago because of mans drainage systems that are not big enough to do the job, and flooding comes from it, doesn't the water at some point run back into the rivers and sea after a few days ? if the sea was rising that much it would stay flooded all the time . That isn't happening yet .

Re: “Sea level rise is already changing our lives

when you keep building and adding more drainage within those New Homes and Sub-divisions that can not handle the amount of rain in an area, it backs up, however Charleston has had the flooding problem as long as I have been here 1959 with no change. O'Reilly couldn't do anything with that issue, and also by building more Homes and by doing that you destroy the natural runoff areas within a community, thus . "FLOODING", and it will get much worse as time goes on if you keep on Building more Homes and Sub-Divisions in the area. wise up. and stop using climate change as your excuse to justify the mistake we are making that really causes all this. Charleston and the area around it are over populated. I have to laugh when I see the powers to be putting drain pipes in the ground for run off due to rain that are far to small to carry the water back to the rivers, and the continued removing of the wet lands by over building. when are we going to stop all this ?

Re: “Sea level rise is already changing our lives

I blame Charlestons sinking on CI-Ci's super pizza buffet! That shit is too good!
I am pretty sure that it is also correlated to the rise of Radical Islam as well somehow even though the media covers it up. I mean that is why our economy sank right? Some people correlate our lagging economy to the SORBANES-OXLEY law being implemented on lying corporations, but they are fools as 110% of american business transactions happened in those towers!
All glory to the all powerfull Santa! Praise him! May his all power full gaze help us drink the blood of our enemies children! Praise Santa! Praise him!! HO HO HO

Santa brings death from above! But we love chucky, and nothing is better than a few toys like a happy meal right? The only thing Ci-Ci's lacks.... No toys on the 6 dollar pizza buffet is why I only gave it three stars on YELP!

"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.

Re: “Sea level rise is already changing our lives

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.

Re: “Sea level rise is already changing our lives

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?

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.

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.

Re: “Sea level rise is already changing our lives

Try again, Nathan.
https://nsidc.org/cryosphere/seaice/charac…

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.

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.
