The propaganda echos from burning all the fossil fuels continues with the California coast going under. Newsweek covers Google Maps going with the 200′ sea level rise scare. So, we have the Southern California coast just like it is now without change in 3015 other than an additional 200 feet of water. And how many folks do we have who will read this, stroke their chins and say “Oh, yeah, we really need to worry about this?”
The Guardian, not to be outdone, cites burning all the fossil fuels, melting the entire Antarctic ice sheet, but only gets 40-50 meter sea level rise in the next 1,000 years.
For a point of reference there is a diatomite (diatomaceous earth) mine in Lompoc, CA, elevation 300-400′. So, the seas have been a bit higher.
(Edit) I should have read farther: Climate Central tells us we will have submerged cities; NPR tells us what the world will look like if this happens and The Carbon Brief tells us to keep coal, gas and oil in the ground. After all, we have a study by climate scientists who must have taken holy orders and have the true word so this is science that cannot be questioned.
And they tell me that if I question any of this junk I’m a science denier. There is absolutely no science to deny in this stuff.
