I don’t know how they get away with such utter nonsense.
This is the headline, on the CNN website.
Making they think everyone is as dumb as they are? Here is a nice sample.
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been strategizing.
His goal: mitigate future storm surges and flooding along the city’s 500 miles of coastline.
That’s a huge challenge. The densely populated city is dominated by some of the nation’s most expensive real estate and is surrounded by a complex web of estuaries, tides and ocean.
Should New York think of its coastline as a threat? Is it the new Amsterdam? Maybe, say experts. But even a city as inventive as the Big Apple can only do so much.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicted in 2007 that the global average sea level would rise between 7 and 23 inches by the end of this century. More recent projections suggest that the melting of Arctic sea ice could mean a rise in excess of 30 inches. The New York State Sea Level Rise Task Force translated that into a local projection of 2 to 5 inches by the 2020s, and with rapid ice melt, the rise could be as much as 5 to 10 inches over the next 15 years.
Umm, Arctic Sea Ice melt doesn’t increase sea levels around the world, it’s already in the Sea.
Why would such alarmist behaviour not be surprising from these clowns.
Maybe the New York State Sea Level Rise Task Force are a group of grade 1 students on work experience?
