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.

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.

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.

A young Muslim woman who was reportedly kidnapped, raped and murdered in a suspected “honour killing” in London posted a positive tweet thanking God for “everything” just days before her death. Celine Dookhran, 19, was found stuffed in a fridge with her throat slit after a second woman who was also attacked raised the alarm from her hospital bed, a court heard on Tuesday. The two women were said to have been bound, gagged and kidnapped by masked men on Wednesday. They were taken to a house in Kingston-upon-Thames, south-west London, where they were both raped and Ms Dookhran was killed.

Scientists at the University of Washington are considering the prospects of a controversial climate change solution called "marine cloud brightening." Most agree the best solution to climate change is the curbing of carbon emissions -- by reducing the burning of fossil fuels, as well as increasing the adoption of renewable energy sources. (Snip) Researchers at the University of Washington have proposed spraying particulates over the ocean to encourage the formation of solar energy-reflecting marine clouds. They published their proposal this week in the journal Earth´s Future. Some climate scientists believe marine cloud brightening is already happening as a result of

A proposal to restrict the sale of menthol flavored tobacco drew dozens to Minneapolis City Hall Monday afternoon. While some said that the partial ban would reduce youth exposure to a harmful product, others made the case that the ordinance may hurt stores´ bottom lines. Convenience store owner Clay Lambert spoke out against the proposal, which would limit menthol sales to adult-only tobacco shops. He said tobacco sales make up about 35 percent of his business at the Metro Petro on University Avenue. Of those tobacco sales, Lambert said about half come from menthol flavored products.

When many middle-aged people think back to their childhood, they remember roaming the streets with their friends during long, hot summers. Our parents threw us out the door in the morning and instructed us not to come back until dinnertime. Often in charge of younger siblings, we strayed further than we should have, got into trouble and, by the end of the summer, had a collection of triumphs, scars and memories for life. But surely such memories are just nostalgia? The bit about the sun always shining probably is. Yet one thing is certain – the level of parental involvement

CAMBRIDGE — Just blocks from the multimillion-dollar brick mansions owned by Harvard University’s legendary all-male final clubs is a separate world.

Scattered around Harvard Square, these rented spaces are home to several of the university’s sororities and women’s final clubs.

Former House Speaker John Boehner said at an event in Las Vegas last week that he used to “sneak into” the White House to see President Barack Obama to avoid scrutiny from the “right-wing press,” according to a report by the Washington Post, which obtained a videotape of Boehner’s remarks. Boehner also lamented the fact that Americans now have too many choices of where to go for news and information. “What’s making everything even worse today is because we have so much news, people get to choose where they get their news,” Boehner said, according to the Post. “It used

BALTIMORE - African American activists have a message for Democrats: If you want to win back the White House, strongly consider a black person on the ticket. On their list are a growing roster of black politicians, notably Sens. Cory Booker, D-N.J. and Kamala Harris, D-Calif., former Attorney General Eric Holder and Deval Patrick, former governor of Massachusetts. Turnout among African Americans in the 2016 presidential election was the smallest in 20 years. It’s a big concern as the NAACP holds its annual convention this week in Baltimore, its first major gathering since the election. Hilary Shelton, head of the NAACP’s

Monday on WISN’s “The Jay Weber Show,” Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) defended special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation into Russian election interference by saying Mueller was “anything but” a “biased partisan.” A listener asked Ryan a question about why Republicans in Congress are not doing more to defend Trump against “what is becoming an obvious witch-hunt.” Ryan replied, “Remember, Bob Mueller is a Republican, who was appointed by a Republican, who served in the Republican administration, and crossed over — I mean and stayed on until his term ended.” He continued, “I don’t think many people are saying Bob

When President Trump made his initial remarks reflecting disappointment in Attorney General Jeff Sessions it was initially unnerving. The subsequent fallout from the public criticism has united the NeverTrump crowd, Cruzbots and professionally GOPe, to defend the honor of the much beloved former Senator. The opportunity to bash Trump is simply an ancillary benefit. Conversely, the MAGA community has largely portrayed the rift as if the Presidential critique was part of a larger strategy between the President and Attorney General. If we wait long enough some mysterious master plan will eventually to be discovered. However, the subsequent POTUS tweets and comments do

President Trump told The New York Times last week that Special Counsel Robert Mueller would be crossing a line if he were to investigate Trump´s finances and those of his family. On Sunday, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the ranking member of the House intelligence committee was asked for his reaction to those comments. Well, I had a couple of impressions,” Schiff told CBS´s "Face the Nation." “First, the president is clearly worried that Bob Mueller is going to be looking into allegations, for example, that the Russians may have laundered money through the Trump Organization. That is really something, in

President Trump´s recent comments undermining Attorney General Jeff Sessions came off as unprofessional to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who may depart his post sooner than expected, according to a report. Trump went after Sessions, his first congressional endorser and a longtime advisor, for having recused himself from oversight of the FBI´s Russia probe, speaking during a New York Times interview last week. ´I think is very unfair to the president,´ Trump said. ´It´s extremely unfair, and that´s a mild word, to the president,´ Trump said in reference to the nation´s top law enforcement officer. Several sources say the former Exxon CEO found

Former President Jimmy Carter predicted the U.S. will eventually transition to a government-run health care system while addressing his church congregation Sunday. “I think eventually we’ll have a single-payer system,” Carter said while speaking to a large crowd before teaching his Sunday school class at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Ga., according to the Wall Street Journal. Carter’s comments come in the midst of ongoing GOP efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare with more conservative legislation. The GOP has struggled to secure enough votes to pass the repeal and replace legislation as conservatives and moderates alike have found fault with

Sticky-fingered socialist Bernie Sanders is apparently stealing his neighbor´s Washington Post subscription, as any good socialist might do. In perhaps the funniest and most fitting news of the year, WMAL radio host Chris Plante told his audience of a story he heard from friends about the elderly senator. A man living next to Sanders apparently called the Post to complain that he was hardly ever receiving his subscription. After an investigation into the matter, the paying customer realized that it was his neighbor, Senator Sanders, who was stealing the paper right from under his nose. (Snip) First it was reported that
