Check out this mind-blowing sea level fraud from Cynthia Rosenzweig of NASA. She claims that Florida launch sites are threatened by sea level rise.
Climate change could submerge rocket launch sites, warns NASA | New Scientist
The Cape Canaveral launch pad is at 22 feet, or 670 cm elevation.
Satellites show sea level at Cape Canaveral rising 2.49 mm/year since 1992.

Long term tide gauges in Florida also show about 2.5 mm/year, and no acceleration in sea level rise over the last century.
It will take 2,700 years for the launch pad to drown, and sea level will rise 9 cm by 2050 – not the 20 cm that Rosenzweig claims. To put her idiotic claim in perspective, it is the equivalent of Bronze Age people making infrastructure forecasts for the year 2015.
What motivates NASA people to make these wildly fraudulent claims?
Gees SG, with the current crop at NASA, it could be many, many centuries before they launch another rocket..
So maybe it is possible it could be flooded before then. 🙂
“What motivates NASA people to make these wildly fraudulent claims?”
Money, fame and fortune. She may receive a large research grant, get a promotion, become the next NASA or EPA Administrator, or the winner of Nobel or Crafoord Prize, etc.
My father is one of the founders of NASA. He is the one who actually gathered up the Nazi rocket scientists during WWII.
He bought into the global warming stuff way back in 1990 and spread it briefly and then suddenly changed his mind when he figured out that the sun is going ‘to sleep’ like during the Little Ice Age and he then wrote his last paper, ‘The Sun Is A Variable Star’ explaining all this which was censored.
No one would publish it! Dr. Aden Meinel who also founded more observatories across the planet than any other scientist was pushed into ‘no one here’ territory and died ignored by all the great people who knew him personally and I am still very bitter about this.
My poor father burned his papers when he fell apart just before he died.
There is a long history of scientific cover-up, sabotage and ostracism etc. Government has been used by the ruling oligarchy for many years as a confiscatory cartel to raid laboratories, health and research clinics, research and development shops, DYI experimenters, etc. I have heard many stories over the years. A number of technologies that would greatly improve our world have been suppressed. Everyone knows about Tesla, but their are almost endless stories.
I used to believe like most, that a democratic government could cure such ills. From many years of study, it appears it is the mechanism for which the ills are propagated. Government itself is the foundation that promotes an ethically bankrupt society instead of a civil society. Just the opposite of what we are taught to believe. I have come to understand it’s basis. It must take property/money from those it rightfully belongs to and give it to those it does not rightfully belong to. This is what taxation is and this is the economic foundation of government. The only thing that you can say for sure, it creates conflict between those that are the tax consumers and those that are the tax producers.
I am sorry for your loss. He sounds like he was a great man with integrity.
He was friends with several Presidents and VPs. Goldwater, for example, was our next door neighbor in Scottsdale for a few years and remained a friend for life. He taught my dad to wear western bola ties, for example.
Jimmy Carter was a close friend too! Both Democrat and Republican Presidents liked him long ago including Eisenhower who knew him back during WWII.
LBJ hated my dad. 🙂 So did Nixon! Put him on the ‘enemies list’!
The Government hates people who think independently and are truly innovative. All they want are “yes men”, to support whatever boondoggle or filching scheme that is in vouge.
Your father and my research mentor, the late Professor P. K. Kuroda, probably experienced similar mental anguish as they realized their own chosen profession had been transformed into a dishonest propaganda mill for Stalin’s scientists.
Why do they care if their launch pads flood? They’re paying the Russians to go into space.
Besides, NASA’s mission is to help Muslims feel good about themselves not launch rockets.
First and foremost the President wants NASA to re-inspire the children, so that Chicago hoodlums stop shooting each other and go into math and sciences.
Ahhhh that’s were we should start looking..
Are any Russian launch pads within a few cm of sea level ?
Yes, isn’t is pathetic??? Siberia is where our rockets that are actually Putin rockets, taking off for NASA which is a dead duck worried about being too warm while Putin prays for hot spells.
You have to admit, this type of article belongs in a publication called “New Scientist”.
HAHAHA. We are all censored there. Try getting published or on TV if you are a realist.
Long before NASA’s launch pads drown they’ll be canceling their vacations in the Maldives. There isn’t an airport in the Maldives more than 2 meters above the current sea level.
One less island to worry about: http://pindanpost.com/2015/09/13/island-going-going-gone/
Now a part of the mainland.
