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.

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.

Eight years after it was given the power to meaningfully change smoking in America, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration moved to do so. On Friday, the FDA announced it would take advantage of powers in the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act — a law enacted under a Democratic Congress and then-President Obama — to cut the level of nicotine in cigarettes to nonaddictive levels. “A lot of people have been thinking about this for a long time, including experts in the agency, including myself,” FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said in an interview with Bloomberg on Friday.

A machete-wielding man has killed one and injured several others after going on the rampage through a German supermarket this afternoon. The attacker, who reportedly screamed Allahu Akbar, ran into an Edeka shop in the northern city of Hamburg and knifed a customer to death before slashing at four others as he fled. He ran off but was pursued by passers-by who wrestled him to the ground and called police who made an arrest. Heavily armed officers have locked the area down and police helicopters have been seen above the crime scene. A motive for the knifing has not yet been established.

Fact-checking website Snopes is on the verge of financial collapse after its owner was accused of embezzling company funds to pay for his contentious divorce battle and lavish overseas trips with his new wife, a former Las Vegas escort and porn actress. The company´s financial woes have gotten so bad that Snopes´ owner David Mikkelson started a crowd-funding website pleading for donations this week, which raised over $500,000 from generous readers in its first day. But DailyMail.com can disclose significant facts which are entirely missing from the fact-checking website´s version of events - including the fraud allegations against Mikkeslon.

More than 500 teens flash mobbed police who came to disperse them during an unauthorized cookout at a Philadelphia recreation center. The mob occurred in Philadelphia´s Germantown neighborhood on Sunday night, outside the city-run Lonnie Young Recreation Center. Police said that the incident began at around 9.30pm, when officers arrived to find the center´s sidewalks and street filled with teenagers, believed to be age 12 to 17. (Snip) Videos posted on Facebook and taken by cookout attendees showed that teens also climbed on top of cars and blocked siren-blaring cop cruisers by taunting and dancing in front of them.

House Republicans said Tuesday they’ve included $1.6 billion in funding for President Trump’s border wall in their new homeland security spending bill, setting up fight with Democrats who have vowed to block any wall funding — even if it means sending the government into a partial shutdown. GOP leaders said the $1.6 billion fully meets Mr. Trump’s request to begin wall construction, which includes 32 miles of new border fencing in Texas, 28 miles of levee wall along the Rio Grande Valley, also in Texas, and 14 miles of replacement fence in San Diego. The bill also adds 500 new Border Patrol

ICE agents apparently love a good breakfast, and it doesn’t matter who’s making it. United States Immigrations Customs and Enforcement (ICE) officers detained three members of the kitchen staff at a restaurant in downtown Ann Arbor, Mich., on Wednesday morning–but only after sitting down to eat some waffles. Sava Lelcaj-Farah, the owner of Sava’s restaurant, told MLive that the incident was “really sad,” and “scares the whole community.” (Snip) When they were done, they “went into the kitchen to apprehend one of our employees who wasn’t on at the time,” as they suspected he did not have the proper documentation.

NHS England has told major trauma centres to prepare for a second terrorist attack this Bank Holiday weekend. The national clinical director for trauma Chris Moran urged staff in 27 cities to be ready for an incident, in a letter obtained by the Health Service Journal. (Snip) The letter asked that all staff had easy access to their major incident plan, as well as instructing them to carry identification at all times. They were also urged to ensure they knew what to do in case their hospital was placed on "lock down". Eighteen adults and 14 children are still receiving treatment in Manchester

The Manchester suicide bomber may have built a second device which is now in the hands of fellow jihadists, police fear. Officers who raided the home of Salman Abedi discovered a working bomb factory with a huge stash of explosive chemicals and other components. Security sources now believe that Abedi assembled the bomb himself after learning his trade in Libya. But the amount of material in his home has led to fears that he could have built more than one device and and distributed them to other British-based extremists. A security source told the Telegraph: "The worry is there was enough to

Los Angeles — A man acted strangely long before he caused a disturbance on a plane that prompted fighter jets to accompany it to Hawaii, but a lack of communication and an airline’s hesitancy to be caught on video booting a passenger could have played a role in allowing him to fly, experts say. Anil Uskanli, 25, of Turkey, had purchased a ticket at an airline counter in the middle of the night with no luggage and had been arrested after opening a door to a restricted airfield at Los Angeles International Airport.

On Wednesday night, I received a phone call from Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director. He wasn’t happy. Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me. “Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information.

(Tweet) Senate Republicans weren´t able to muster enough votes to pass their skinny repeal of Obamacare. Senators voted 49-51 shortly before 2:00 a.m. Friday morning. Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) cast a surprise "no" vote. He was joined by GOP Sens. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Susan Collins (Maine). The bill, titled the Health Care Freedom Act, would have repealed the individual insurance mandate. It would also have repealed the employer mandate for eight years.

What would you conclude if you voted for a candidate or a party because of a promise to repeal or change a law that you strongly felt was harmful and unjust, but once in office the party refused to do it? You might conclude, rightly, that those politicians didn’t really work for you, and the party didn’t care what you thought. That’s precisely the message Republicans have been sending their constituents throughout the Obamacare repeal fiasco. The failure of Senate Republicans to pass a so-called “skinny repeal” in the early hours of Friday is merely the latest instance of GOP

Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) were expected to vote against the "skinny repeal" -- a bare-bones repeal of only the individual and employer mandates as well as the medical device tax; the latter has drawn bipartisan criticism over the years.

President Donald Trump’s Wednesday announcement on Twitter that transgender men and women will not be allowed to serve in the military “in any capacity” was not a complete surprise: Last month, Defense Secretary James Mattis announced that the military was hitting the pause button on an Obama-era plan to welcome openly transgender people into the military. But the announcement was a legal land mine. The Trump administration may soon learn that singling out a class of people for exclusion violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law.

NEW YORK — The Boy Scouts’ chief executive apologized Thursday to members of the scouting community who were offended by the aggressive political rhetoric in President Donald Trump’s recent speech to the Scouts’ national jamboree. The apology came in a statement from Chief Scout Executive Michael Surbaugh, three days after Trump’s speech to nearly 40,000 scouts and adults gathered in West Virginia. Other U.S. presidents have delivered nonpolitical speeches at past jamborees. To the dismay of many parents and former scouts, Trump, a Republican, promoted his political agenda and derided his rivals, inducing some of the scouts in attendance to
