Time Is An ocean But It Ends At The Shore

I am including a couple of graphs today (Fig. 1 and Fig. 2).

The data were generated by the evolving sea level module I am writing (again).

It works with the module that processes WOD zones, but the difference is that it processes all PSMSL stations within a zone or zones, and makes historical graphs and future projection graphs for the list of zones requested (The Evolution and Migration of Sea Level Hinge Points (discusses software models).

Also FYI, I am passing along some quotes from some interesting articles:
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has joined the growing list of agencies and offices probing ExxonMobil on climate change.

The federal agency has launched an investigation into how the oil and gas company values its future projects in the face of global climate change and plunging oil prices, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing unnamed sources.

The SEC, the Journal reports, is looking into Exxon’s practice of not writing down the value of its assets ― something other major U.S. energy companies have done in response to falling oil prices ― and how the company “calculates the impact to its business from the world’s mounting response to climate change.”
(Feds Investigating Oil-Qaeda). The East-Antarctica "it won't go the way of Greenland" vs the "yes it will" debate continues:
Strongly divergent interpretations developed of either long-term ice-sheet stability, or ice-sheet dynamism through the Pliocene based on analysis of sediments from the TAMs, yet none of the dozens of key papers included data that could be directly tied to EAIS conditions at sea level. The debate, widely referred to as the ‘stabilists’ versus the ‘dynamicists’, became defined by these end-member solutions, with little consideration of possible intermediate ice-sheet configurations. Furthermore, none of the dozens of key papers included explicit or adequate definitions of either a ‘stable’ or a ‘dynamic’ ice sheet.
(Nature: East Antarctica Melt). There are less civil ignorant rants going on all the time (Thuh 4Fathers Hate Dirty Hippy Environmentalists).


The heat beat goes on too:
"The combined average temperature over global land and ocean surfaces for August 2016 was the highest for August in the 137-year period of record, marking the 16th consecutive month of record warmth for the globe."

Dylan et al.
