Parts of Puget Sound could rise 2 feet
Scientists offer projections on higher sea level
January 17, 2008
A study released Thursday by scientists with the University of Washington and state Department of Ecology could help answer that question.
In the worst case — which assumes high levels of greenhouse gas emissions and faster melting of ice sheets — Puget Sound is inundated with nearly 2 feet of water by midcentury, more than 4 feet by 2100.
Experts indeed tell us that greenhouse gases are rising faster than expected and ice sheets are also melting faster than expected (at -50C.)
Sea level in the region has been completely steady since 1975, Tamino’s period of modern global warming. Once again, scientists are trying to pretend that they know something scary, when in fact there is not one shred of evidence to support their claims.
