Scientists say Miami could cease
to exist within our children´s lifetimes

Business Insider, by Melia Robinson

Miami, a city of 430,000 people, could disappear within the century if the worst climate change predictions come true. New York Magazine´s David Wallace-Wells spoke with dozens of climatologists and researchers in related fields for an investigation on the outcomes of climate change if aggressive preventative action isn´t taken. The results were not pretty. (Snip) Within the century, a combination of polar melting, carbon emissions, and ice-sheet collapses could cause chronic flooding to wipe out Miami — and as many as 670 coastal communities, including Cambridge, Massachusetts; Oakland, California; St. Petersburg, Florida; and four of the five boroughs of New York City, according

My only concern is to where New Yorkers will retire, those who survive their own flooding. There is no hurry though with one inch a century of water level increase.

While accepting his ill gotten Nobel Prize in 2007 the Gorebot thundered with assurance that in seven years the Arctic will be entirely ice free in summer in seven years. August 2014 had seen record year over year growth of the icecap for over three years and expeditions to measure the ice ´melt´ got stuck and had to be rescued.
They are still publishing this garbage??

Some scientists will say anything to draw attention to themselves. They are basically fund-raising on the back of fear. Their views are not sustained by the facts so fear is the only option left for them.

The world will cease to exist if the worst comet predictions come true. So what? When I was very young, I remember the summers being very hot. Now that I am older, the summers are still hot. Over 50-60 years there hasn´t been a change in the summers that I have experienced. So why would the world change to utter disaster in less than 10 years. That would take a beyond dramatic change like a comet strike. Somehow, I just don´t buy all the hysteria.

Their predictions are always 50 to 100 years into the future. This is their worst prediction. They´ll all be gone by then. No accountability. And they can´t even predict the weather by this weekend correctly. These guesses shouldn´t even be considered science.

So the Earth is supposed to remain static, never changing? Look at the beautifully colored layers of sedimentary rock in the Grand Canyon. Every one of those layers was at the bottom of the ocean at sometime in the Geologic past.

Also remember Miami was built on sand which is on top of limestone. Just think sinkholes.

Miami´s excitable mayor recently declared that the city was going under water. That´s not true, nor will it be a century or more from now. Over time the oceans rise and recede, and the climate always changes. The only sensible thing for humanity to do is to do what the plant and animal kingdoms do: adapt. There´s nothing, positively or negatively, that mankind can do about the oceans to the climate. Quixotic attempts to "heal" the earth are a total waste of our wealth, and should be abandoned, along with politicians who keep insisting that we do something about it.

I have lived for over thirty years in a place on the edge of the Gulf where the tide can be observed, inch by inch, every day, right out my rear widow. Though my information is anecdotal, I can assure you that high and low tides are exactly where they were three decades ago. Whatever changes might have occurred in the ocean, they´re not noticeable here. It´s no different in Miami, regardless what their idiot mayor thinks.

If this is the best {rolling out the big guns) they can do in the wake of blockbuster papers like this one: http://www.lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=917718 the Warming Cultists are in big trouble.

I read that paper a week ago, and posted a link to all my social media websites. So far, crickets from the Warmists.

Hopefully, this whole Cult will cease to exist before Miami does. They are the ones who are underwater, being rapidly drowned by waves of truth.

A better place to instill fear is in Hawaii. If this comes true the Hawaiian islands will be half submerged. The climanaiaces fear that if all the icebergs floating in the ocean melt that sea levels will rise. Just like when they have a scotch on the rocks, when all the ice cubes melt, their drink will overflow the glass and spill out all over ther car seats.

President Donald Trump says NFL owners should fire any players who protest during the national anthem - and called on fans to walk out if they see anyone doing so. Several of the league´s top stars have refused to stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner" to protest the treatment of black people by police in the United States. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who was the first to take a public stance on the issue while playing for the San Francisco 49ers, hasn´t been signed by an NFL team for this season. While he didn´t mention Kaepernick specifically by name Trump indicated he believes any players protesting are disrespecting the flag and deserve

Officials in California, Oregon and Washington are taking steps to move their presidential primary contests toward the front of the nominating calendar. They say they want voters in their states to have more influence over the candidates the two parties will nominate, and holding earlier contests is key to expanding that influence.

Democrats are worried that the fight between former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is doing lasting damage to their party. As the bickering between the former rivals grows more intense, Democrats say it needs to end.

Another former Obama official added, "It´s like watching two children bickering." The only winner from the infighting, they say, is the Republican president.

While promoting her newly released memoir, Hillary Clinton has placed blame on several factors for her loss to Donald Trump last November — from her own mistakes, to Russian interference in the U.S. election, and the late intervention by then-FBI director James Comey. But Clinton has also spoken candidly about how deep-rooted sexism played a hand in her defeat, and about the double standards she faced as the first woman nominated by a major party for president in America’s 240-year history. In an interview with the New York Times published Saturday, Clinton spoke further about how misogyny is used as

The Senate’s top Democrat offered praise for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) after he said he would oppose the latest ObamaCare repeal bill, which narrows the chance that Republicans can get the legislation to President Trump’s desk. “John McCain shows the same courage in Congress that he showed when he was a naval aviator,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said an hour after McCain’s statement. “I have assured Senator McCain that as soon as repeal is off the table, we Democrats are intent on resuming the bipartisan process.” McCain is the second Republican, after Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), to announce

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell snapped back at “divisive” comments about the league Saturday, hours after President Trump urged team owners to fire players who won’t stand for the national anthem. At a political rally Friday night in Alabama, Trump griped that players who kneel for “The Star Spangled Banner” disrespect the flag and should lose their jobs. (Snip) Goodell issued a statement via Twitter at 9:16 a.m. Saturday: “Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs

Hillary Clinton said on MSNBC Saturday that women who support President Trump are “publicly disrespecting themselves.” (VideoTweet) “When I see women doing that, I think, ‘Why are they publicly disrespecting themselves? Why are they opening the door to have someone say that about them in their workplace, in a community setting? Do they not see the connection there?´” Clinton told MSNBC’s Joy Reid on AM Joy. Clinton commented about the Trump-supporting women after Reid asked her about pro-Trump women wearing shirts with profanities directed at Clinton. The former 2016 presidential candidate added that she thought it was “troubling” to hear about

His pre-dawn raid was meant to intimidate Manafort, not just to collect evidence. Robert Mueller’s sprawling special-counsel investigation is playing hardball. It was not enough to get a search warrant to ransack the Virginia home of Paul Manafort, even as the former Trump campaign chairman was cooperating with congressional investigators. Mueller’s bad-asses persuaded a judge to give them permission to pick the door lock. That way, they could break into the premises in the wee hours, while Manafort and his wife were in bed sleeping. They proceeded to secure the premises — of a man they are reportedly investigating for tax and financial crimes, not gang murders and Mafia hits — by drawing their guns on the stunned couple, apparently to check their pajamas for weapons. Mueller’s probe more resembles an empire, with 17 prosecutors retained on the public dime. So . . .

There really ought to be a statute of limitations on how long John McCain can play the tortured war hero card. His war hero status was exhausted with me a decade ago over a single instance. Brad Smith, who as chairman of the Federal Election Commission and law professor dared to criticize the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law on constitutional grounds (later vindicated in several Supreme Court cases culminating in the glorious Citizens United decision), came before a Senate committee one day to testify about campaign finance laws. He had recently had surgery, and had to appear in a wheelchair. Smith wheeled himself

President Donald Trump says NFL owners should fire any players who protest during the national anthem - and called on fans to walk out if they see anyone doing so. Several of the league´s top stars have refused to stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner" to protest the treatment of black people by police in the United States. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who was the first to take a public stance on the issue while playing for the San Francisco 49ers, hasn´t been signed by an NFL team for this season. While he didn´t mention Kaepernick specifically by name Trump indicated he believes any players protesting are disrespecting the flag and deserve

Michelle Obama said in a speech Thursday that the White House is currently being led by fear, comparing President Trump´s administration with her husband and former President Obama´s administration. (Snip) “It isn’t just us first,” she said, referring to Trump´s "America first" policies. “We live in a big country and a big world," she said. "You can’t just want to help someone in a hurricane and not make sure they can go to the doctor when they’re sick.” Trump reiterated his "America first" doctrine in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly this week, emphasizing that America would put
