Building An Army Of Complete Morons

Check out the latest stupidity from Baltimore Magazine

Sea level at Baltimore, like the rest of the Northeastern US appears to have been rising at a fairly steady rate for well over a century. There has been no acceleration, and the fastest apparent rise rate occurred prior to 1950. In fact, almost all of the apparent sea level rise is due to land subsidence.

Baltimore sea level is rising at about the same rate as it was in 1910, when global temperatures were supposedly cold and falling. Obviously what is happening in Baltimore has nothing to do with global warming.

Sea level in California isn’t rising at all. Obviously what is happening at Baltimore is not a global event.

There isn’t one shred of evidence linking rising sea levels in Maryland to “global warming” yet the author writes page after page based on that thesis. These people make Monty Python witch burners look like serious scientists.

      While Algore may be the borg queen, I do not see a Locutus among them.

      • Locutus is there but his enormous size doesn’t allow him to wear standard headgear. He lives in a special oversized cavity with a tunnel carved through the Cube to the Queen’s quarters so he doesn’t clog the regular drone corridors. Also, he eats once every Earth hour and the other drones don’t like the way he looks at them between meals.

  2. Rising seas in Maryland are proof of global warming, and falling seas in Alaska and Norway are proof of global cooling.

  3. Steve Case says:

    The acceleration of sea level rise at the Baltimore tide gauge is a minus -0.005 mm/yr²

  4. Steve Case says:

    The acceleration of sea level rise at the Balitimore tide gauge is a minus -0.005 mm/yr²

    1903-1958 3.5 mm/yr
    1959-1913 3.3 mm/yr

    Ron Cassie writing for Baltimore Magazine tells us:

    Due to the region’s geology and Atlantic Ocean currents, sea levels in the Chesapeake Bay are rising twice as fast as the global average and are projected to jump by as much as two feet in the next 35 years, and up to five feet or more by the end of the century.

    Two feet over the next 35 years comes to an average rate of over 17 mm/yr.
    Five feet by the end of the century comes to almost 18 mm/yr.

    Anyone with some curiosity and modest Excel skills can verify those numbers

  5. I’m a fan of sarcasm.
    If people think they can affect global temp/climate by political means…..that’s a form of sarcasm unto itself.

  6. Curt says:

    I spent my summers on the Eastern shore of the Chesapeake as a kid in the 1960s and 70s. I recently returned there with my own kids and could not observe any change in the level of the bay relative to the landmarks I knew as a kid.

    Due to the prevailing westerly winds and the waves they kick up, especially in storms, erosion on the Eastern shore is a real problem. But it has nothing to due with sea level rise. It has been going on for eons. It is a “horizontal” problem, not a “vertical” one.

    If you read James Michener’s historical novel “Chesapeake”, set on the Eastern shore and written in the 1970s, this erosion is a recurring theme in the book. As one of his carefully researched books, he uses historical records to show how this erosion has been a problem at least ever since Europeans settled there. IIRC, the book ends with one of the colonial plantation mansions falling into the bay.

    This paper from 2010 seems to concur with you:

    Ron Cassie seems to want to blame tectonic movements on humans.

    I for one hope I can dump my ocean-front property on some dupe at fire sale prices!

    Why polar vortex attack America again.

    “As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

    ― H.L. Mencken

    For some reason this post reminded me of this Mencken gem.

  12. Chesapeake Bay is the site of an old comet impact crater and is sinking at up to 2mm a year.

  13. emsnews says:

    This is the result of cherry picking. Just like the jerks who made up the story that last year was the Warmest Year EVAH…they then produced a short, short list of the ‘hottest ever’ spots which were of course, Australia and the edge of Southern California (aka:LA).

    So with this rising seas nonsense they do the same, ignoring places where the land is rising and focusing only on the couple of places where it is sinking. Totally disregarding natural changes in sea fronts caused by currents shifting the sand banks and of course, tectonic plate activity which causes some places to sink and others to rise.

    Lisbon, Portugal, once plunged into the oceans, killing many people, several hundred years ago and that was plate tectonics. The tsunami that wrecked part of Japan and Indonesia, both were tectonic movement moments which caused a sudden fall in elevation of land masses of considerable size.

    • Louis Hooffstetter says:

      It’s worse than cherry picking, it’s an outright lie. When a boat sinks, there is no ‘sea level rise’ involved. It sinks, pure and simple. Subsidence is land sinking, pure and simple. It’s not sea level rise.

  14. oeman50 says:

    They are touting the same claims of sea level rise for Norfolk, Virginia, just around the bay. Strangely, no such claims are being made for the city of Virginia Beach, right next to Norfolk.

  15. stpaulchuck says:

    awww come on Steve. Ya got it all wrong. It’s obvious from the graphs that the US is tipping over from too many people on the East Coast.
