Here’s How San Francisco is Bracing for Sea Level Rise
Estimated to Impact $48 Billion in Assets
October 24, 2014

San Francisco’s Capital Planning Committee (CPC) has adopted what is being called the most comprehensive guidelines in the nation for preparing for the impacts of sea level rise on a city’s infrastructure.

“This is the first time that I’ve seen a city really actively assessing the risks to new public investments,” Jessica Grannis of Georgetown’s Climate Center told VICE News.

The guidelines assume sea level rise of 11 inches, plus or minus 4 inches, by 2050 and as much as 66 inches by 2100.

With roughly seven million people living in the San Francisco Bay Area, the potential for displacement and damage to business and ecosystems is enormous. The Pacific Institute, a think-tank focusing on sustainable development, estimates $48 billion of assets could be impacted in San Francisco alone.

“Over the next 10 years we expect that we are going to be investing $25 billion in public infrastructure in San Francisco,” Brian Strong, Director of San Francisco’s Capital Planning Program, told VICE News.

While fishing for money, Gleick apparently forgot to tell them that neither tide gauges nor satellites show any sea level rise around San Francisco.

Tide gauge in the San Francisco Bay shows no sea level rise for 70 years.

CU satellite sea level data for San Francisco also shows no rise in sea level.

The city government is being defrauded out of tens of billions of dollars, to solve a problem which doesn’t exist.

    But, but, but… the models!

    I see no problem in San Francisco progressives donating their excess money to projects like bracing for a non-existent catastrophic sea level rise. Better that, than democrats running for office.

    If Peter and others have a sexual or other dysfunction that makes them feel humiliated or inadequate, there is no valid reason for them to take it out on other people.

    The sea level rise is going to start any day now. Just you watch. 11″ in thirty five years from a standing start… nooo problemo

    Hold on. Didn’t Algore’s 97% promise us 20′ ?

  5. David A says:

    At least the article is getting ripped in the comments; all negative like this…
    like this one…”….because we don’t know what the actual sea level rise will be” – the quote here from the Pacific Institute (yet another financial beneficiary).
    Yet:
    “The guidelines assume sea level rise of 11 inches, plus or minus 4 inches, by 2050 and as much as 66 inches by 2100.”
    The sooner you people are put in jail the better. After paying restitution and interest to the taxpayer.”
    end of comment.

    San Francisco sinking , nothing new!

    http://www.sfgenealogy.com/sf/history/hgoe26.htm

    “San Francisco is sinking! This is the startling statement of the civil engineer who conducts the work of the City and County Surveyor’s office at the City Hall. Sinking, slowly but steadily, each recurring year bringing additional evidence that a large portion of the city would in a few decades be below the waters of the bay….

    …..In a hundred years the waters of the bay would be ebbing through the first stories of buildings, and the second floors would be what seamen call awash. Large vessels would find sufficient water in those streets to sail up to Sixth and Folsom streets and Market and California streets”

    San Francisco Examiner. 25 September 1898.
