Well, that's not entirely accurate. Sea levels are still very difficult to get clean data. Bottom line is that sea levels have been rising, but not at an accelerated rate as predicted by climate science. Instead it rises at a constant rate seemingly unaffected by temperature or co2. And levels will continue to rise until the next ice age or mini ice age.You linked to an opinion piece by a climate change denier. He also doesn't believe second hand smoke is bad. If you don't mind, I'm going to go with the science community on this one...At least we're starting to make some process here and no longer denying that sea levels are rising. Science will continue on and will correct itself if needed.John

Every major government, our own military and ALL of it's resources (the largest by far in the world), every major scientific group..... essentially everyone with any reasonable information agrees that climate change is real and humans are contributing to it in a major way. Do you know who Jim Bridenstine is? He is the current head of NASA who was also a long time denier. Go check his very recent story out. Ocean levels are rising. Fact. The rate of rise has been increasing in the last several decades. Fact. It is expected that it will continue to rise at rates even higher than now. NOT FACT, but educated opinion, I'll go with NOAA on this one. Every major country, every major military, every major corporation with skin in the game are planning for increased sea level rise. It seems to me to be reasonable for the OBX to do the same. I'm sure they already are.....
Hyperbole? I don't see that in Tortuga John's post.
We'll have to agree to disagree on that.
marylander, you can write whatever words you want, but it doesn't make them true. It is universally accepted that climate change is real and man is accelerating it. Tortuga John is not wrong here. You can choose to ignore it, but that won't make it go away. You can continue to read the the denier words, but it's funny how those keep changing to keep up with actually science. No worries, science will continue.miinx said it best. Science doesn't care what you think. It's only cares about what actually is. If something comes along that gives more information and changes something, science will accept it. It's actually a great model to follow.John
Cold hearted orb that rules the night,Removes the colours from our sight.Red is grey and yellow white.But we decide which is right.And which is an illusion?

One last thing Tortuga John, are you related to J4YDubs? Nahhhhh, couldn't be, it's just a coincidence you are both named John. Just curious why you logged in to make this one post and then poof, you're gone.
The answer is easy in theory - harder to implement. What we need is to invent a car motor that does not pollute and runs on sea water. Problem solved - we can just burn up the excess sea water in our cars!
