The argument isn't that sea levels are rising. It's pointing out that the vociferous global warming fanatics claims that we are accelerating climate change and all going to die soon are nothing but alarmism. Sure, seas are rising, but look, it even stopped for a couple of years and there isn't yet any real data that shows some massive increase in sea level rise. Instead, it shows that's rising at the same VERY slow level that's been rising for a very long time.

If alarmists were right, wouldn't you expect to see the graphs getting increasingly sharper upward trends? Why is it that it's so very linear when Al Gore and government paid scientists keep telling us it's getting so bad that we should already be underwater.... Lol. They are just wrong over and over and over and people like you keep following along like some sort of religion.
Um, no. My comment was in response to the claim made earlier in the thread that NASA admitted sea levels are falling (no qualifier that it was a slight wobble in the upward trend, just that flat out "NO, SEA LEVELS ARE FALLING"), when the graph shows quite the opposite.

I don't see anyone claiming that anyone's going to die soon because of rising seas. Even the smoothest of the smooth-brained have plenty of time to get out of the way.

And they keep making land to build on by draining the swamps that nature made to protect the mainlands from flooding.

Well duh, of course those areas are going to flood. Just like they have for hundreds of years. The only difference now is that people are building too damn close to the water.

Mother Nature is reclaiming what man took away

I do not think the science is settled at all. Global warming may be occurring but is it caused by man (AGW as it is called)? Earth's climate has heated and cooled naturally for as long as Earth has existed. There have been hot periods, ice ages, mini-ice ages. All of which predates man. Something as basic as solar activity can greatly affect our planet's climate.

Please show me a link to the research that proves if we do everything the global warming crowd wants us to do that the seas will stop rising and global warming will cease.

I am very concerned about this issue, I think the authorities should pay attention NOW, in a few years may be too late.

Did a lot of research on this. A rise that is high enough to be a major issue is at a minimum 35 years away and a maximum of 2000 years and probably not an issue until about 2100. The science is all over the place and many sites just give the worst case theoretical problem.

Regardless of the cause (sea level rise, more frequent and/or intense storms, etc.), I keep hearing that Miami has a unique problem when it comes to fighting the sea - very porous base soil.

It is possible that Miami is a unique case and not representative of FL as a whole, but is used to make the claim it will impact every city.

I think Miami is focused on because of the fact that it's the most major metro in FL, coastal, and most of it is right around sea level. Tampa, not so much, Jax, not so much, Orlando, not even close.

Yes it fits the worry idea better than other cities, but it is due to the low lying nature. Not that it isn't a problem, but not for the whole State or even all coastal areas.
