We can always could on Warmists to provide hysterical…as in “loony tunes”, not funny…commentary. The original title of this Mashable piece was “Global warming to cause fastest rate of sea level rise in human history.”
Apparently, they thought that might have been too stupid even for the Cult of Climastrology, so they changed it to
Coastal mega-cities could see more than 6 feet of sea level rise by 2100
Which is equally as stupid, being based on reading a crystal ball, er, computer model.
With global climate talks kicking off in Marrakech, Morocco on Monday, a new study provides a sobering warning about what may happen to coastal mega-cities if decisive global emissions cuts are not made soon.
Based on a scenario in which countries fail to sharply rein in emissions of global warming pollutants, coastal cities are likely to see the fastest rate of sea level rise in human history before the end of the current century, the study found.
Could, may, likely. Very scientific. Really, scaremongering.
What’s more striking is that the study shows that more than more than 90 percent of the world’s coastal areas will see more than the global average sea level rise.
Huh? Let’s unpack that. They’re prognosticating that sea rise will be utterly different in some areas, which would be, you guessed it, the areas where they can fear monger the most.
The study, published Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found that if global warming pushes past 2 degrees Celsius, or 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit, above preindustrial levels, about 80 percent of the global coastline may see more sea level rise than the global average.
Double huh? Why would sea level rise be drastically different? Oceans don’t work differently along the coasts where liberal cities reside.
“If the Paris Agreement fails and the worst-case scenario comes to pass, South Florida and the boot of Louisiana would not likely survive this century. Many more places, from Boston to Shanghai, would be gravely threatened,” said Ben Strauss, a sea level rise researcher at the nonprofit group Climate Central who is unaffiliated with the new study.
Keep pushing the non-scientific dogma in an attempt to scare people.
If the climate were to warm by 5 degrees Celsius, or 9 degrees Fahrenheit, above preindustrial levels by 2100 — which is roughly the path we’re on now — New York City could see more than a meter, or about 3.6 feet, of sea level rise with an even higher upper limit, when factoring in sources of uncertainty.
What path? We’ve seen a whopping 1.4 Fahrenheit increase since 1850. Never change, Cultists, never change. You provide so much great material to expose insanity.
And, yes, the article does state that this is all based on computer models.
