There are way more important things to worry about like the homeless, the still in effect 2008 Great Recession, lack of jobs, lack of good parenting, underage pregnancy, pollution, out of control parents and kids, drug abuse, etc, etc. StarfishKey must be really bored to come up with this stuff. Seriously girl, you live in the Keys don't you? Between kayaking, fishing, eating shrimp, scuba diving, boating, jet skiing, drinking and partying, and you still have time to dream this stuff up?
Odd how the scientific community doesnt think global warming is just a hoax perpetrated by Al Gore=
I'd say your take on the issue is not only absurd but paranoid and delusional and is based not on scientific research but more on rightwing media alternate reality brain washing.

U said they have been worried about for decades. The only reason they did those ridiculous studies was because of the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy. The affected citizens called for action and those studies are the only action they will ever see.

I grew up in NYC. If u lived there you would realize that there is nothing that can be done to prevent the intrusion of salt water there. That's my point.

DEEP: Connecticut Climate Preparedness Plan
And what are they going to DO about it?

I cant speak of CT, but I can speak of most of Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. The Bronx, for the most part, is at higher elevations though there are many sea level locationms.,

We are not talking about reasons why there was a study for sea level rise and climate change. You said and I quote

Which is completely false. Keep on now wandering.

when you are also told about CT from people who know about it, you say

Totally incorrect.

In spite of all the citations from public officials, engineers, scientists, etc. you think its nothing to be concerned about because "its God's way of expanding the ocean."?

I don't believe I've ever heard that particular theory before. Pls give us some information on your educational credentials and/or other studies that you can point to support it? I assume its based on more than just listening to Fox news?

Do yourself a favor, drop the politics and open your eyes and your mind.

Here is a report that details the task force on Climate Change impact Assessment was formed in 2004.

This report was published in 2008--way before Sandy, by the way as you are claiming a few threads up. they are not doing this NOW. They have been doing this for sometime

2015 - 2004 is MORE than a decade.

http://www.nyc.gov/html/dep/pdf/clim...e_complete.pdf

You are just talking about things that you don't know.

All these data doesn't support your argument and I quote...

let me withdraw my comment the comment "not worried about it" to "nothing they can do about it except studies".

OUCH! I'm glad there are self-appointed, "mistruth dispellers" here on CD. People should go back and read others prior post and "block" them for posting such BS.
