But the solution to that problem at one port is the problem at another port:
According to the graphics and information provided by Professor Mitrovica of Harvard, all of the sea ports in Iceland, shown in Fig. 1, will go dry (see video below).(Peak Sea Level - 2). As today's graphs show, "change" is not a word that has only one meaning.
The same can be said of all the ports in Greenland (Fig. 2).
Not to mention that all of the sea ports in Australia will experience different levels of rise (N. Australia) or fall (S. Australia), or stay at the same level (Mid Australia), depending on their distance from Antarctica (compare Fig. 4 with Fig. 5).
Today's graphs show that some ports will experience sea level fall (The Ghost-Water Constant, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9).
In 1888, a scientist named Robert Woodward published a paper indicating that the beginning of sea level change would be sea level fall near ice sheets (e.g. Greenland, Antarctica) and large glacier fields (e.g. Glacier Bay, Alaska).
His paper has been ignored by most modern scientists, but not by the better ones:
To our knowledge, Woodward (1888) was the first to demonstrate that the rapid melting of an ice sheet would lead to a geographically variable sea level change. Woodward (1888) assumed a rigid, non-rotating Earth, and therefore self-gravitation of the surface load was the only contributor to the predicted departure from a geographically uniform (i.e. eustatic) sea level rise. This departure was large and counter-intuitive. Specifically, sea level was predicted to fall within ∼2000 km of a melting ice sheet, and to rise with progressively higher amplitude at greater distances. The physics governing this redistribution is straightforward.(On the West Side of Zero, quoting Dr. J. Mitrovica). Not heeding or acknowledging that seminal paper was a huge mistake.
Because it indicated what would be a sure sign that ice sheets were beginning to melt (The Gravity of Sea Level Change, 2, 3, 4; NASA Busts The Ghost).
Not only that, since the water that was being released from ice sheet gravity had to go to other places, it would also indicate that sea level rise was taking place in other places at the same time.
Dr. Mitrovica, in the videos below, mentions that scientists were perplexed with tide gauge station readings and called that development "the European problem" because "they didn't have a clue" about what was going on (circa 2000, 2001).
To this day, many if not most, published papers do not mention that sea level is falling or that "the missing water" is going to other locations on Earth to cause sea level rise there (Concern for seaports).
That is a misstep which led to the "thermal expansion must be the cause of most sea level rise" assumption or hypothesis (Hot, Warm, & Cold Thermal Facts: Tidewater-Glaciers - 4).
But the oil industry, Oil-Qaeda, knew very well what they were doing to ice sheets, even bragging about it in a 1962 full page ad in Life Magazine (Humble Oil-Qaeda).
The only thing Oil-Qaeda has changed since then is that they have become criminally insane (The Criminally Insane Epoch Arises, 2, 3, 4), and murderous (Oil-Qaeda & MOMCOM Conspire To Commit Depraved-Heart Murder, 2, 3).
As the public wises up, some in government are trying to do something about it (Oil-Qaeda: The Indictment, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).
The civil courts are active, but the results remain unknown (Oilfluenza, Affluenza, and Disgorgement, 2).
Especially since Oil-Qaeda impaired the 2016 election so as to place their operatives in the seats of power for all to see (The Shapeshifters of Bullshitistan - 5, Beware of the Sycophant Epidemic).
