The USGS seems to think that sea level rise is something people should believe in. From newspress.com, Where does all the carbon dioxide in the Everglades go?
This is a fairly interesting article on studying CO2 uptake in the Everglades. Some of the statements are interesting. Such as:
Scientists know very little about atmospheric exchanges of greenhouse gasses in forested subtropical wetlands. These ecosystems turn carbon dioxide into usable substrate in a process that also releases oxygen and methane, another problematic greenhouse gas.
Wait. I’ve been hearing for years about tropical and subtropical wetlands being carbon sinks. I assumed that scientists knew what they were talking about. Maybe not.
Then there was: Though some don’t seem to believe in sea level rise — even though it’s been documented by federal agencies for more than a century — sea levels are rising across most of the globe.
I thought there was scientific evidence that allowed one to infer a 120-meter sea level rise over the last 20,000 years. It’s a matter of faith and belief?
Maybe someone thought that the article wouldn’t have been quite as interesting if we hadn’t thrown in the religion of climate change.
