CHARLOTTE, N.C. — This summer the North Carolina Senate passed a bill banning researchers from reporting predicted increases in the rate of sea level rise. But the ocean, unbound by legislation, is rising anyway — and in North Carolina this rise is accelerating, researchers reported here yesterday (Nov. 6) at the annual meeting of the Geological Society of America.

On the coast of North Carolina and at other so-called "hotspots" along the U.S. East Coast, sea levels are rising about three times more quickly on average than they are globally, researchers reported during a session devoted to sea level rise.

That's the fastest rise in the world.

If that is true it means that the east coast is sinking rather than the sea is rising. Think about it.

Model estimates of sea-level change due to anthropogenic impacts on terrestrial water storage
[link to www.nature.com]

[snip]

We find that, together, unsustainable groundwater use, artificial reservoir water impoundment, climate-driven changes in terrestrial water storage and the loss of water from closed basins have contributed a sea-level rise of about 0.77 mm yr between 1961 and 2003, about 42% of the observed sea-level rise. We note that, of these components, the unsustainable use of groundwater represents the largest contribution.

"We cannot expect as a society to respond to accelerating sea level rise if we can't even respond to linear sea level rise and storms," he said. "Every single storm is an opportunity to take a step back from the coast. Instead, coastal development continues."

Young cited the example of Dauphin Island, Ala., which has been inundated by storms eight times in 26 years. Each time, he said, the federal government has stepped in and paid to rebuild the island's infrastructure. "That's crazy," Young said.

The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” – Carl Sagan

I live right next to the ocean and the old timers here say that the level has fallen a great deal from 50 years back. Sea level is highly variable over time and from place to place. There will always be alarmists and opportunists who take advantage of ignorance among the people.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1330824





Shortly after the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster, there were maps showing how the gulf stream was being adversely affected.

Apparently the corexit and/or the oil caused it to sink quite a bit in many areas and it was predicted that the sinking would spread to the eastern part of the North Atlantic Ocean.

What is happening to currents in other areas?

Is this true? I saw a British article that refuted this. Can you give me a good link to a study regarding the change in the gulf stream.

The information is out there for an inquisitive mind.

The earth is a rough old thing.. not smooth and round like a marble.
Weight distribution and mass are not equal throughout. Spins.. wobbles a little, moon grabs a little..
Warm water is bigger than cold water.
Lots of factors to consider.

The tugs and pushes on the oceans are variable.

I sure hope that prediction isn't happening, at least not to any great extent. Last I recall there were possible indications of problems with the gulf stream off the coast of Georgia, but that was over a year ago. Will look for something more up to date.

ocean is not rising....
the plates are lowering.

you have seen it for 6 months in Asia, with so called floodings, they blaimed the rain. But then they said it was a very dry season and they needed the rain for the crops. More excuses and mistakes they made.

and now its your turn.
global warming is a scam, its all about the plates youre country is on. The plates are sinking into the oceans, so the country sinks.

its not the ocean rising....

The more water in an ocean, the more weight on the seafloor, the more it sinks, along with the coasts. Google 'post glacial rebound'.

look at the mid atlantic, directly between the UK and USA

notice anything? they are HEIGHT differences in the Geoid

[link to www.youtube.com]



perhaps they are starting to have an effect now? Perhaps this flooding the east coast is getting/will be getting is just a symptom of the doom to come, the pole shift?

the whole world is being plagued by flooding at the moment. perhaps it is ALL a symptom of the coming pole shift?

NY city floods was a gentle hint........sea levels are going to rise as the poles are melting and Atlantis is rising so more water in the big pool. City people might move inland or get a bit wet. Most large cities are on the ocean and need a good cleaning. I read about this 35 years ago, its the Mother Earth moving to a higher dimension so there needs to be so adjustments. The Mother has invited all the Hue Mans to come along or move to another planet if they don't like it here. Change is the only constant. People on the east coast might be more stubborn than others so they are getting the water treatment first?
