I would advise you to relax, I’m sure your descendants 2 million years from now will figure out a solution when sea levels rise 1 ft

For Earth Day, Florida PBS stations this evening will be broadcasting "Greta Thunberg: A Year to Change the World." It would be shocking if accelerating sea level rise wasn't a major topic of discussion. Click on arrow on left to find the segment at WPBT in South Florida.

https://www.wpbt2.org/?gclid=EAIaIQo...SAAEgJz0fD_BwE

Here's an extended preview:

https://www.pbs.org/video/extended-preview-jklvrq/

For classic science fiction movie fans, this warning by Thunberg more kindly echoes Klatuu's farewell message in the 1951 version of "The Day the Earth Stood Still."

<<Thunberg says she understands that changing the world — or even getting her fellow global citizens to care about how’s it’s changing — will not happen overnight, but she wants everyone to be aware about how their daily actions can affect future generations.

“I’m not telling anyone to care,” said Thunberg. “But if you want yourself and your children and grandchildren to be able to live in a prosperous world and in a world where they can enjoy all the things in life that you have gotten to enjoy, then you should care. But of course, that’s up to you. I’m not telling you to do something — saving the world is voluntary.”>>

Some PBS may rebroadcast the documentary at later times over the weekend.

For those who want to delve more into the scientific reality of climate change and its impact on sea level rise, perhaps add to their Earth Day reading list "Moving to Higher Ground, Rising Sea Level and the Path Forward (2021)" by John Englander, a Floridian oceanographer, former CEO of the Cousteau Society, and a leading expert on sea level rise. This should be a must read for any Floridian, or anybody considering moving to Florida or any ocean coastal area.

While this thread deals with the certainty of accelerating sea level rise, Englander in his book discusses the possibility of "abrupt" sea level rise (I haven't read the book, but think Thwaites and other deteriorating Antarctic glaciers).

<<The rate of rise can accelerate quickly, possibly abruptly, greatly surprising us.>>

Most persons don't know that the Thwaites and other massive Antarctic glaciers don't rest on land above sea level as in Greenland, but on a seabed well below sea level and directly exposed to the surrounding warming ocean. See "What Lies Beneath the Ice of Antarctica" map in this article.

There has been no acceleration in sea level rise in the entire state of Florida.....

Tide gauges are direct measurements of sea level....and no tide gauge in the entire state of Florida shows any acceleration at all

You repeat this falsehood every chance you can find in this forum, and it has been repeatedly debunked, even in this thread. See post 11.

https://www.city-data.com/forum/flor...lerates-2.html

"Big Lie" propagandists count on the fact if they repeat falsehoods frequently, and never concede the objective deceit of their arguments, that many persons will believe their lies.

Moreover, the past doesn't matter as much as what's coming down the pike. Ocean heat content is accelerating, and ice melt in the cryosphere is accelerating. The Gulf Stream and other ocean conveyors are slowing. Sea level rise in the next twenty years, let alone the next 40 years, 60 years and 80 years will transform our planet.

Please tell us what is happening to the well documented massive amounts of fresh water from accelerating ice melt in the cryosphere if it's not ending up in the oceans?

Hopefully, others can read the well documented posts that portray the scientific reality and then ignore your posts as just a constant stream of deceit by an obstinate climate change denier unable or unwilling to deal with the empirical evidence and expert scientific opinion from sources such as NASA (see again post 11).

Money talks... when every lender leaves the state because of rising sea levels, then we can all be worried... but that isn’t happening, the opposite is happening if anything.

It's been well documented that accelerated sea level rise will become much more pronounced in the next 10 years, let alone in the next 20-30 years.

Read through this thread, or post 6 and subsequent posts in this thread.

Who doesn't know this?

I'm pretty sure that most people above the age of 10 know darned well that massive glaciers in Antarctica don't rest on land above sea level. Ever watch a documentary on penguins?

LOL.....you can't "debunk" a tide gauge

..and there is no tide gauge showing any "acceleration" in the entire state of Florida
