    Not much to worry about….

    …. I will refer only to a paper by my friend H. Jay Zwally, from NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, who for decades has used satellite techniques to measure the mass of the polar ice sheets. In his paper (Zwally et al. 2005), he presents the study of changes in ice mass derived from 10.5 years (Greenland) and 9 years (Antarctica) of satellite radar altimetry data.

    Zwally et al. show that the Greenland ice sheet is thinning at the margins (−42 Gt per year) and growing inland (+53 Gt per year). This corresponds to a sea level decrease of −0.03 mm per year. In West Antarctica, the ice sheet is losing mass (at −47 Gt per year), and in East Antarctica, it is gaining mass (+16 Gt per year). The combined net change of −31 Gt, corresponds to +0.08 mm per year of sea-level rise. Hence, they report, “the contribution of the three ice sheets to sea level is +0.05 mm per year.

    During the period studied, the Antarctic Western Ice Shelf changed its mass by −95 Gt per year, and the Eastern one changed by +142 Gt per year (together their mass increased by 47 Gt per year). The contribution of polar ice of 0.05 mm per year to sea-level rise is small, in comparison to the real sea-level rise observed from satellite altimetry of 2.8 mm per year. The ice sheets’ contribution would take 1,000 years to raise global sea level by just 5 cm, and it would take 20,000 years to raise it 1 meter. ….

      Martin Luther King, Jr. had good advice for us as integrity is restored to our government:

      “The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility.”

      ― Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Damn! It will take over 40 meters to drown the Capitol, that’s 14,000 years of sea level rise, at 3 mm/year. We need to burn more coal, and fast!

    I followed the link, and they don’t even have a fractional meter selection which is what’s needed for a realistic assessment. But then who really thinks the people putting stuff like this out are trying to be realistic.

    Anyway the rate of sea level rise over the last 30 years at Baltimore is a little over 4 mm/yr and the acceleration over the last 60 years is about 0.075 mm/yr². IF that were to continue until 2100 Baltimore would see about two feet of sea level rise or a little over 0.6 meters..

    It would be more useful to see a map of sunken sea levels. All those folks north of 40 are going to need to relocate.

    Does anyone else see the irony in Cherry Hill New Jersey being directly between the nearest mainland and what will become Pine Barrens Island?

    Just jack up your house, add stilts/floats and trade your bike for a paddle boat…

    Great tool. It looks like I’ll have waterfront property at about 20 meters of sea level rise. I’m not holding my breath.

    I want ocean front property too! I am several hundred feet above sea level and would appreciate some sand, too, when the ocean comes around these here mountains.

    They had better get started moving I-95 westward. If they start now it might be done by the time the water gets there.

  10. Ernest Bush says:

    The problem with this propaganda is that most of us in flyover country are hopeful that Washington D.C. will disappear off the map. A 20 mile inland loss of coastline on both coasts would be a good thing in our estimation. It would provide new opportunities for beach front investment.
