NC Considers Making Sea Level Rise Illegal
By Scott Huler | May 30, 2012 |  74

There is virtually universal agreement among scientists that the sea will probably rise a good meter or more before the end of the century, wreaking havoc in low-lying coastal counties. So the members of the developers’  lobbying group NC-20 say the sea will rise only 8 inches, because … because … well, SHUT UP, that’s because why.

That is, the meter or so of sea level rise predicted for the NC Coastal Resources Commission by a state-appointed board of scientists is extremely inconvenient for counties along the coast. So the NC-20 types have decided that we can escape sea level rise – in North Carolina, anyhow – by making it against the law. Or making MEASURING it against the law, anyhow.

CU satellite data along the coast of North Carolina shows no change in sea level so far this century. But Scientific American says that all scientists agree that sea level is going to rise by more than a metre before the end of the century.

    They want to make it against the law to use untested Wild Ass Guesses as a basis for future plans rather than actual historical records projected forward as normal people would do.
    I see it as a restriction of the Chicken Little Brigade’s clamoring. They can still cry the Sky is Falling but decisions can not be based on their fantasies.

    The alarmist predictions of widespread coastal flooding caused by an AGW-induced rise in sea levels is pure speculation — the shabby product of poorly designed climate models. In truth, the scientist-doomsayers peddling such predictions are engaged in a frantic effort to shore up the fast-collapsing global warming theory.

    By the way, there is a growing body of scientific research that points to the advent of a long-term cool-down, perhaps a Dalton- or Maunder-type Minimum, or even another Little Ice Age or Bond Event. We’re already seeing evidence of a global temperature decline. If we enter a period of long-term cooling, sea levels will decline.

    Obviously, we’re witnessing once again the proliferation of junk science, bred by a lust for research dollars and media attention.

    I cancelled my subscription to S.A. a few years ago. They sent me an email asking why I was leaving while the subscription had several months to go. I said I will re subscribe when ‘you get off Al Gore’s global warming hoax bandwagon’. Never heard back.

      I also used to be a SA subscriber of many years, but began to notice a left-wing tilt by around 1990. I quit very shortly after. Once a year I glance at a copy to see if they changed – alas, they are just getting worse. They should call themselves the un-Scientific American.

    Do these numbnuts have any clue how much water that is?

  5. Walter Horsting says:

    I gave up my subscription to SA for the same reason…I had been a subscriber since the 3rd grade.

    Is this scam coming from another group of followers of that fellow who worships a goat? You know the guy named Pan, the one who plays a multipiped flute

  7. Doug Proctor says:

    The disconnect between predictions and observations boggles me. The immediate acceleration of temperature, sea-levels and CO2 that must occur to bring the proposed disasters of 2050, not just 2100 do not seem to concern the warmist worriers.

    All I can suspect is that the average Westerner, regardless of his/her education, really has neither a grasp of elementary science, technology, physics and scientific extrapolation, nor an imagination beyond what it takes to move from mealtime to bedtime to mealtime. Today is all that exists for this person. Yesterday is irrelevant as today is special, and tomorrow follows its own rules, ignoring today, because tomorrow is even more special than today.

    We are a culture of medievalists, practicioners of magical thinking and revering conmen like Al Gore and Pachauri because they offer us blue blankets to calm our fears – the ones they created in the first place.

    The MSM likes to tell stories of Nigerians killing neighbours who, they claim, are witches bringing illness to the community and drought to their crops. Are we, with our eco-warriors shrieking from the pages of our newspapers, that much different?

  8. There is a nice annual sea level cycle in the graph. Solar input as the seasons change perhaps?
