Posted on 05/03/2013 9:57:03 AM PDT by Twotone
The inaugural Rising Seas Summit will bring professionals from national and local government, industry, academic institutions and environmental NGOs together to highlight the interrelationships between sea level rise, climate change and extreme events. Understanding, anticipating and adapting to water related threats is critical to national security and a stable economy. Sea level rise will continue to damage coastal ecosystems and inland water systems, and the recent catastrophic impacts of Hurricane Sandy have demonstrated the risks faced by all coastal communities on the U.S. eastern seaboard. These new environmental challenges require that stakeholders share knowledge and work together to reduce and mitigate environmental and social degradation induced by climate change.

For the Agenda 21 ping list.
Wow. Let us hope that this particular form of delusion is starting to die out.
And how much CO2 will be generating moving all of these people to the conference? Haven’t these greenies ever heard of teleconferencing?
Your tax dollars at work.
Some folks either can’t or don’t want to acknowledge the difference between coastal errosion and rising sea levels.
The primary difference is that one is happening and the other is NOT!
I’m really worried about global warming.
Yesterday: Building collapses in southeast MN; snow likely factor
[[If sea levels rise, they will rise everywhere. Surely someone else would have noticed. How stupid do they think we are? ]]
Oh— oh-— ohhhh- untrue- a puddle in my drivewy got a little deeper the other day, and I compeltely blame global warming even if noone else experienced their puddles increasingi n size and your doubt and sarcasm shwo that you are nothign ore than a cliamte change denier
If the sea is only rising .5mm per year that means in about 100 years it’ll be about 50mm or about 2 inches.
Margret Thatcher started the ball rolling on AGW back in 1979. See my profile for the link about the details.
This is bogus, of course, but it doesn’t matter, this is part of the larger agenda, Agenda 21,
Speaking of which, why don’t we have any threads on Agenda 21 here on FR? For those who don’t know what it is, I would advise you to google it, read it and weep. It is the biggest threat we face, bigger than Obama.
The destruction from the hurricanes had nothing to do with global warming and everything to do with wind speed and direction.
Send a note to TEXOKIE to get on the Agenda 21 ping list. Lots of us are following the Agenda 21 goings on.
I just hope some Florida FReepers protest this ridiculous summit. We need to Alinsky them but good!
“Climate change” is not some historically new fact. The earth’s climate has been changing, constantly changing and never has stopped changing from the start.
Part of the problem is that the lifetime, and life-memory of any human is but a spec in time to the history of the earth and a spec in time to its climate history. From that fact people confuse a “norm” of their lifetime, or even some 50, 75, 100 or 200 years as an “earth norm” and any deviation of it as some climate abberration. It’s not.
For example: Just this morning my neighbor and I were talking about the 16 inches of snow in some parts of Minnesota yesterday, and here its already May, and how gee isn’t that “unusual”. (We live in NJ by the way). Her 92 yr old mom asked what we were talking about. We told her and we commented again how unusual it seemed. She said it didn’t seem so wierd, she remembered snow in New Jersey in May in her lifetime.
The real constant, in every age, of any seashore and storm damage is NOT “rising sea levels” but the fact that in every age the seashores across the globe have been shaped by the storms that hit them, the storms that have always hit them and will always hit them.
In southern New Jersey the entire topography for tens of miles inland in places comprises features that have been created by the inward push of storms from the sea, over long periods of time. It is clear to geographers that no known human settlements have ever experienced some of the storm levels that southern New Jersey has experienced in its past. Obviously no industrial-age CO2 was the cause of them.
