Rising sea levels are occurring as part of the climate changes we face on the Planet's latest cycle. This will become problematic as 50% of the human populations live by the sea. Many large cities are only less than 100 feet about sea level. Thirty percent of all the human population live only 50 feet above sea level. Cities like Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco, San Diego, Sacramento, Miami, Tampa, Jacksonville, New Orleans, Houston, etc. and that is only in the United States. What about Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing? We saw what recently happened when the Tsunami washed the ocean ocean onto land. Well, what happens when the ocean is higher all the time? We can forget most of Florida as the Giant Sand Bar state is drawn back into the sea. New Orleans is already under water; what about Boston, NYC and Washington DC area, are they not exactly high altitudes?
Some Global Warming alarmists are now thinking it is time to invest in House Boat Stocks and pick out a big ship to live on? Hello Water World? You probably have not been following by Bangladesh's largest island being being eroded now by higher seas. You might say so what? Well over half the island is eroded and 500,000 are homeless now. Indeed, not as bad as the 200,000 who were washed out to sea by the Tsunami and later found drown; but this is serious and the problems are becoming worse. The issues in Bangladesh are about 40 years or so in coming and are now getting much worse. River currents are also moving and strengthened by the increased tides and ocean heights.
You know we in the United States also have river mouths at the ocean, which can be problematic at times. Especially during severe storms or from Hurricanes; take for instance the Potomac and Chesapeake, which run up through Philadelphia, Maryland, Northern Virginia and Delaware. When a recent Hurricane came up only 10-foot rise raised havoc. Imagine that all the time and add in another 15 feet all the time, without any severe weather? Then take a severe storm of 10-15 feet raise? See Ya. Now look at places like San Francisco, Boston, LA, NYC, Long Island; hell, look at the entire Eastern Seaboard, Central Valley CA and Washington State Coastline? See the problem? Right now we see the 20 Typhoon seasons in the Asian Pacific and the issues with the Indian Ocean and the South Atlantic on the South Southeastern coasts of South America and the islands, which are not over 15 feet in their inheritance. Tomorrow what will we see? You like Waikiki, Honolulu, and Maui; better go visit now before they are under water. At least that is what the Global Warming folks are saying. They are pointing to some good hard evidence not from a Climate Modeling Computer but from a real life observation of places on the globe where it is already started. Think about this or buy an escape boat?
