    Does Florida Have it Coming When it Comes to Rising Sea Levels?

    I was talking to my uncle in St. Petersburg and he told me he believed in climate change but not that it was caused by humans. For his sake, I hope he's right, because this is what the projected sea level rise looks like by the end of the century for Florida:

    So do people like him in Florida have it coming for not fighting against their cities becoming the new Atlantis?

    Not really, they will likely get massive federal aid, like New Orleans did (and still does), to stay put at the expense of others. We are a rich nation governed by fools with lots of "access to" other people's money to borrow and spend.

    Hell, that ain't nothing. Look what happens due to future Earth changes.

    FYI, if there's a sea-rise, it will happen over time not in one fell swoop. There will be plenty of time to relocate GamGam.

    Unless of course there's a major tsunami...then all bets are off.

    That doesn't make sense. He presumably recognizes the scientific data regarding sea level rise but questions the anthropogenic aspects.

    Yup, it's sun spots or the normal temperature cycle of the Earth or something. Either way we can keep burning oil and driving our Hummers.

    Then him being 'right' doesn't change anything in regard to sea level rise (which is scientifically projected at 1m over ~60-110 years).


    ps. That 1m sea level rise map has been around for over 10 years.
