Same thing happened with leaded gasoline. People are seriously stupid.
ROFL, as if you knew who and what you were talking about, and knew anything about "real science".

The giveaway showing your ignorance would be your argument limited to the ad hominem attacks.

Just like the non-rocket scientists who now claim there is no global warming issues and evolution didn't happen. They believe that woman was created from a man's rib, but think that evolution is ridiculous despite the scientific proof presented.

It seems like a strange regression--back to the days of total ignorance when religion ruled the world. Thunder? It's the gods bowling. Ignorance is truly bliss. God will fix everything--just pray a lot.

Guess you figured you had to one-up the other ad hominem attacks on those skeptical of "global war.......er...... climate change". I understand, it's all you've got, but just the same, it contributes nothing to the debate.

Obviously, your liberal handlers believe that faced with the reality that their arguments and predictions have no basis in reality, they will win the argument solely on ridicule, intimidation, and character assassination of those folks skeptical of their views.

The whole thing is a scam to expand government control over our lives. Don't believe it? Look how many laws and regulations now affect us all in the name of global warming or whatever they want to call it today. Pending are EPA regs to control even the smallest puddle in your yard. Further, the EPA has publicly stated it is willing to go door-to-door to enforce such regs.
Many news stories were run in days gone by that can be cherry picked because the media tends to cater to alarmists. People are constantly posting about how scientists were predicting cooling back in the 70s even though that was just a handful whose findings never found much acceptance in the scientific community.

I think it is likely that you are well aware that the 2008 report you posted about was not the consensus. The more accepted projections won't flood Manhattan for over 100 years but in less than 150.

Do they have a big seawall? Trying to comprehend what good pumps would do but I guess if it is a rare high tide or storm surge that spills over, they could pump it back out to keep from having standing sea water for as long a period. Is that what they have in mind?

I heard it was Miami Beach, maybe both cities.
The pumps will clear seawater from the streets, but they're not going to save the shallow Biscayne Aquifer, source of drinking water for Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties, from the saltwater intrusion caused by increasing storm surges.
