|It will happen|
Today, I present the graphs for Atlantic City, NJ, which has kept tide gauge records since 1912.
I added a feature to the Dredd Blog SLR model to save readers from having to convert RLR meters into SLR meters by subtraction, etc., so you will see some of that today (Fig. 3, Fig. 4).
I get strange interaction with idiots from time to time, but readers and regular

You know the story and have probably seen those troglodyte comments around "the innertubes."
Anyway, I am explaining the reality that flora and fauna are not the first things to
I am pointing out that the Sixth Mass Extinction, which is currently under way, part of which is sea level change (SLC), will be taking out coastal cities first well before all the flora and fauna is made extinct.
Gravity, axial relocation, and rotational relocation have an impact on SLC, so the global averages do not point out sufficiently that the SLC is a threat to civilization itself, because, as Dr. Titley pointed out: "If you stop the [sea-port] shipping, you stop the economy" (The Extinction of Charleston).
The SLR is clearly going to take out the sea ports, no question, and the only valid question is when.
Both the conservative IPCC model (Government Climate Change Report - 6) and the more radical Hansen model (A Paper From Hansen et al. Is Now Open For Discussion) show that current sea ports are doomed.
IMO, that happens at the most within 85 years, and at the least within 15-20 years.
