EPA : Too Much Wet Can Destroy Wetlands

The US. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that a six-foot sea-level rise would destroy as much as 80 percent of this country’s coastal wetlands.

Popular Science – Google Books

Sea level has risen 120 metres over the last 20,000 years. All the wetlands must be at the bottom of the sea – along with the missing heat.

    Wetlands move inland in retreat from rising sea levels

  2. Isn’t all the land submerged under the sea wet? It would seem, therefore, that increasing sea levels would increase the area of wet land.

    I suggest though, the EPA is making up things to justify their ever increasing reach of power and control over everything we do. It has absolutely nothing to do with wetlands or wet land.

    The Army Corps of Engineers is a far greater threat to wetlands. I say let the EPA and ACE duke it out, may the best engineers win. šŸ˜‰

    • I say abolish them both and sell all the public lands to the highest bidder. Use the proceeds to pay off the national debt.

        Steady now, rash logical thinking like that will get the NSA/IRS watching you.

        • Haven’t you noticed, they already are.

          Just to make sure –
          Insha’Allah that goes down like a presidential drone bombing from a commercial flight.

        • The best place to hide is out in the open and say things that look to them to be over the top crazy. That is exactly what I am doing.

          My body is feeling its age and has no capability for hand to hand combat. I own no weapons but my mind and my ability to speak my mind with clarity and economy. They, on the other hand have the NSA, FBI, DOD, EPA, DOJ, countless Swat Teams, etc. along with a huge pile of war machines and ordinance. They can overwhelm me in milliseconds. All I can do is express my ideas. What harm can that do to them?

          See the events ca 1776 in North American for instructive detail.

        • tom0mason says:

          I’m not in the best physical state either. So if they come for me they better have a gurney.

          1776 rerun?

        • “1776 rerun?”

          That is what it is going to take. Not a revolution with arms but with ideas. We are going to have to finish what our founding fathers started. This will take a complete philosophical and moral revolution to accomplish.

  4. Bob Greene says:

    A projected 6′ sea level rise between 1989 and 2050. Includes all the skeers like “Florida will disappear”. I believe we are a touch behind the 28.8″ we needed by now to make 72″ of increase by 2050. Do you suppose this rise will happen all at once?

    If the sea actually did rise and cover the existing wetlands, why wouldn’t new wetlands be created? My unscientific observations indicate that fish move with the water level on rivers and lakes. When the water rises they move to the former dry areas. I’d suppose the “wetland” concept has some play based on seasonal rainfall. But what do I know, I’m not an expert climate scientist?

  5. Glacierman says:

    Only wet caused by CO2 is harmful. It’s almost as bad as hotcold, or wetdry.

  6. George Costanza says:

    Attention all CAGW alarmists ā€“ I am currently pretending to be a Marine Biologist to impress my new girlfriend. What is the current price I should charge for commiting/transmitting scientific fraud regarding global warming in exchange for any remaining ethics I may or may not possess? $100K/yr, $200K/yr, more? It would be helpful to get input from someone in the water quality field that has a solid track record ā€“ perhaps chief climate ethicist Peter H. Gleick would advise. Thank you in advance for your help.

    • Any relationship based upon a lie is itself a lie. A lie is an attempt to fake reality in the hopes one can “get away with it”. In any event, are you sure you have a good enough memory to remember all the details of the tangled web of deceit you will have to weave to sustain your first lie? However, if you do, consider that all of reality will be your judge, jury, witness, and executioner. In the long run, you will lose.

      Pay the $2 and tell the truth. It will be far less costly.

    • Anthony S says:

      That almost sound more like something Kramer would do than Costanza, if not for the girlfriend bit.

    • Are you the architect George or the biologist George?

      I’d stick with the Yankees.

  7. Traitor In Chief says:

    Here in the Northwest, you could collect enough water from the roof of your house to supply your family all year long. There is tremendous groundwater. So any depression in the topography can fill with water, and thereby instantly become “Precious Wetland”. When you see such a depression on your property, or should you foolishly create one, fill it in under the cover of darkness ASAP, or the state will have you cultivating the weeds growing in it and feeding the tadpoles and mosquitoes gestating therein.

    The cult of Gaia has chosen vile swampland filled with putrefied vegetation as holy, or at least, holier than dry ground.

  8. Billy Liar says:

    Washington DC used to be wetland – perhaps it should be reverted?

  9. Ben says:

    If you like your wetland, you can keep it. Period
