The Extinction of Charleston

Fig. 1
Scientists have pointed out many times that the U.S. east coast is on the list of the top ten recipients of sea level change (SLC) in the form of sea level rise (SLR).

Some areas of the deep oceans are number one on the list, but as far as shorelines are concerned, the U.S. east coast is number one at some point in time (Peak Sea Level - 5).

Recently, Dredd Blog posts have been showing various degrees of SLR on the east

coast.

This has been in the form of presenting the history of SLR at various PSMSL tide gauge stations.

Then, appending the future projections of various degrees (5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 yr. "doubling") onto the end of the SLR history (e.g. see Fig. 1 - Fig. 5).

What a concept, the "history of SLR" means that it is not a future concept, no, it has been happening for a long time.

SLC is an historical concept, a hard-science reality, not some scary thingy to be placed under the kid's bed sometime in the future.

The industrial revolution started before we were born, circa 1750.

So did SLC, SLR, and sea level fall (SLF).

As the few aware scientists back them said, "this green house gas that industry is emitting will change the temperature of the planet upwards" (paraphrased).

The rub is that as goes the temperature so goes SLC, whether in the form of SLR or

in the form of SLF.

Projecting future quantities of SLC is sorta like prognosticating about who will be the winner in a football game.

At least in the sense that just because one does not know what the exact score will be, one can still know which team will win, and which team will lose.

Especially in the sense of a super-bowl professional team playing a peewee league team composed of elementary children.

Fig. 5
Civilization is the peewee elementary league, and SLC is the professional super-bowl winning team that is invading civilization at an accelerating rate now (Greenland & Antarctica Invade The United States, 2, 3, 4; The 1% May Face The Wrath of Sea Level Rise First, Why The Military Can't Defend Against The Invasion, Weekend Rebel Science Excursion - 44).

It is late in the 4th quarter, and the peewee league is certainly going to lose.

If you think the results are uncertain, you are damaged by typical Oil-Qaeda deceit, lies, and distortions (The Criminally Insane Epoch Arises - 4).

Oil-Qaeda knows it is guilty, but like most criminally insane types, they will plead "not guilty" and try thereafter to snitch-out an innocent victim (Oil-Qaeda: The Indictment - 6, Oil-Qaeda: The Indictment - 5, Oil-Qaeda: The Indictment - 4, Oil-Qaeda: The Indictment - 3, Oil-Qaeda: The Indictment - 2, Oil-Qaeda: The Indictment).

(Retired Admiral) Dr. David Titley:

16:30 Climate change impact on water is a good way to discuss the issues.

18:50 There has always been cancer, but that does not mean smoking cigarettes does not cause cancer.

28:40 Who believes in climate change? (Everyone raises hands.) I don't believe in it, I know about it. It is not a matter of belief, it is a matter of knowledge, something we know.

40:45 If you stop the [sea-port] shipping, you stop the economy. This is kinda why it is a big deal.

  1. Perhaps it is time to revisit "the domino theory."
