Vanishing ocean floor in the Florida Keys
worsens risks from sea rise, study finds

Miami Herald [FL], by Jenny Staletovich

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 4/20/2017 10:36:57 PM

If sea rise weren’t scary enough, scientists have now found another phenomenon threatening the Florida Keys and other coasts protected by reefs: a vanishing ocean floor. In a study published Thursday in the journal Biogeosciences, a team from the U.S. Geological Survey documented a dramatic erosion of the sea floor around coral reefs, ranging from a few inches to nearly three feet since the 1930s. Combined with sea rise, the disappearing bottom means the hazards facing coasts — storm surge from hurricanes and even erosion from everyday waves — will likely be worse than now projected, especially for the low-lying Keys.

Comments:
Ocean floors lowering? That means there´s room for more water, mitigating the bogus threat from "our rising seas"... but if you have Global Warming to sell, a few twists and turns in logic means we´re in more danger than ever before, and one day we´ll all perish.

If you´re worried about the sea level rising then go live on Mt. Everest and eat dirt, Fools.

Sea rise is about 2 millimeters a year at the worst, hardly a threat to anyone.

Sort of like the "sink holes" that pop up all around Florida?? That whole area is built on limestone, which "disappears" over time. These so-called scientists are such bed-wetters.

Have none of these "scientist" ever heard of "plate tectonics"? The earth´s crust is floating on a sea of magma (molten rock). That is why we have earthquakes and fault zones. There are sedimentary rocks at the tops of mountains. The planet Earth is not a static "rock" in space. The topography of the Earth today is not what it was thousands of years ago, and not what it will be thousands of years from now. Global warming is not science, it is idol worship.

OMG.

Either the people saying these things are so lacking in geological/geographical understanding that they are unwilling and incapable of ever viewing this world as anything but their little push broom - I mean, there´s something witch like about their thinking isnt there? "It happens because I say its going to happen, and when it happens, it happens because Ive said it so."

OR, its because they DO know something about geology/geography, and they KNOW they know more than the general population (which frankly, could use several kicks in the pants when it comes to geography and geology), and use that ignorance against them, again, because they see the world as their little push broom, and whatever they will to power, they will say whatever outlandish thing they can.

And whats worse is Im getting the sense that those who ARE educated well in geography have been infected by these ridiculous witches as well...it was happening when I was getting my minor in geography at the best school in the US for that subject (and before you snicker into your sleeve about how i minored in underwater basketweaving, you remember that when you turn on your car and consult your NavSystem for directions or call your local emergency service for help - geographers made those possible for you).

Instead of seeing sea rise as scary, if these "scientists" were really smart, they would buy up land a few miles from the ocean and wait 30,000 years or so until it became beachfront property. Voila! Instant profits.

The water level in the Gulf of Mexico is higher than the Atlantic Ocean due to the trade winds blowing from the SE. The water thus flows out between the northern islands the the Florida Keys as the Gulf current. The ocean bottom is probably just getting dug deeper by the current just like a river bed does.

Oxford University has apologized for a newsletter that suggested avoiding eye contact was an example of casual racism after receiving backlash from the autism community. The university’s equality and diversity newsletter had included a list of “microaggressions” that said not making eye contact or speaking directly to people could be an example of “subtle, everyday racism,” BBC News reported. Social media users accused the university of being insensitive to people with autism, who can sometimes experience difficulty making eye contact with others. Oxford sent out a flurry of tweets Thursday apologizing for the newsletter. “We made a mistake. Our newsletter

President Trump pushed back Friday against South Korea’s objections to paying for a U.S.-deployed missile defense system, insisting that it’s “appropriate” for Seoul to shoulder the $1 billion cost. “Why should we pay for it?” Mr. Trump said in an exclusive interview with The Washington Times. “It’s a phenomenal protective system, best in the world by far, and that’s meant to protect South Korea. So I respectfully say that I think it would be appropriate if they paid for it.” The U.S. military is deploying the missile shield as a defense against North Korea.

Brentwood, N.Y. — Attorney General Jeff Sessions will visit one of the suburbs on New York´s Long Island that is in the grip of fear from a violent street gang with Central American ties, MS-13 on Friday morning. The gang has been blamed for the deaths of 11 mostly young people in blue-collar Brentwood and Central Islip since the school year began. Some parents say they are afraid to let their children go to school. Teens say any perceived slight to a gang member, particularly a refusal to join, can mean death.

Camden — A Honduran man who has repeatedly been deported pleaded guilty Thursday to kidnapping, interstate domestic violence and illegally entering the country, U.S. Attorney for New Jersey William Fitzpatrick said. Jose Amaya-Vasquez, 32, was arrested in Texas in 2005 for attempting to enter the country illegally. He was released but failed to appear for a court date. In June 2014, police in Kansas City arrested Amaya-Vasquez for domestic assault after he pushed his girlfriend into a table. He was later turned over to immigration officials, who deported him. He was arrested again in September 2014 in Texas after re-entering

Ethanol’s rise over the past decade has given birth to an under-the-radar market: Americans who are willing to travel miles out of their way and pay significantly more per gallon for ethanol-free fuel. Like locally sourced food or antibiotic-free chickens and eggs, so-called E0, or “pure gas,” has generated a cultlike following willing to pay a premium. More than 12,000 service stations across the U.S. and Canada now offer E0, according to pure-gas.org and other groups that track fuel trends.

The crime rate among migrants in Germany rose by more than 50 per cent last year, according to new figures that have raised concerns the populist far-Right may seize on the issue in the run-up to September’s elections. The number of suspected crimes by refugees, asylum-seekers and illegal immigrants rose to 174,438 in 2016 — an increase of 52.7 per cent, according to the interior ministry. (Snip) The highest crime rate was among migrants from the Balkans, Morocco, Algeria and the former Soviet Union, who have little chance of being granted asylum.

Saturday marks President Trump’s 100th day in office, and to celebrate the occasion he got a bit too candid in an Oval Office interview with Reuters. Obviously certain elements of being president are pretty fun, but President Trump has discovered that it isn’t all playing with trucks and pressing a button that makes Cokes appear. Sometimes there’s work to be done, and as it turns out being leader of the free world is a lot harder than running a fake university and playing a caricature of a rich person on TV.“I loved my previous life.

An estimated 346 employees in the Department of Veterans Affairs do no actual work for taxpayers. Instead, they spend all of their time doing work on behalf of their union while drawing a federal salary, a practice known as "official time." That´s according to a report by the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office. But exactly what those VA workers are doing and why so many are doing it is not clear. The VA doesn´t track that, and the GAO report offers no clue. Rep. Jody Arrington, R-Texas, a member of the House Veterans´ Affairs Committee, thinks the number on 100 percent official
