Jerry Brown: ‘LAX Must Be Moved Due to Rising Seas From Global Warming’
IJreview ^ | 5/16/2014 | Michael Hausam

Posted on 05/17/2014 8:52:59 AM PDT by Beave Meister

California Governor Jerry Brown released his state budget earlier this week and had some strong warnings about future cost impacts due to the effects of global warming.

According to some scientists, over the next couple of hundred years, sea levels could rise up to four feet and that will affect the airports in Los Angeles and San Francisco, as well as the nuclear plant in San Onofre.

Wouldn’t it be cheaper just to buy some pontoons for the planes?

Let the Chinese worry about that when they are running CA. It is certain CA won’t last 200 years under its present management.

I guess they walked it back some since LAX has a mean elevation of around 125’ above sea level. Maybe in, oh say, 40,000 years at current rise rates.

That’s why the Spruce Goose was built. So that LAX could remain open even after the oceans rose. Howard Hughes - patriot and visionary.

What makes him think we will still need airports in another century. A century ago no one had any idea of air travel on the scale we have now.

Hmmmn.

LAX runways and tower are 125 feet above the sea level. And about 3000 feet back from the beach.

Hard to see what impact a 4 foot rise would have ... and that “potential” sea level rise “might” occur in 400 to 900 years. IF the West Antarctic Ice shelf melts at all! Last year in October, the sea ice surrounding that West Antarctic ice shelf set an all-time record high! (Just the “excess” antarctic sea ice on May8 was 97% the size of Greenland!)

So, raise the sales tax rate to 15% right now, even though "up to" includes the number zero, and nothing may happen.

Who's to say that we will still be using airports in two hundred years, anyway?

The San Onofre nuclear power plant has been decommissioned and if a central repository for nuclear waste is ever established the spent fuel will be move off site as well, so I don't know why this is being used as an example.

Yeah, LAX will still be viable over the "next couple of hundred years".

Well lets see, we still have the Burbank airport, Long Beach airport, and of course the two large International airports in Ontario and Orange County. Why all the panic?

The operative word is could.

When did could become a scientific determiner for anything?

The moon could explode in a hundred years and spread green cheese all over Planet Earth. It probably won't, but it could.

Science used to be more reputable. Every thing was fine as long as the concensus of scientists knew the world was flat. [/s]

Seem reasonable to me just to have Sacramento give everyone money to relocate, then open the entirety of California to the kind of American who is willing to settle, work, build, propagate and prosper, risks and hazards and rising seas be damned.*

It happened once before and would be lovely to see again.

*p.s. Oh and kick the damned illegals the hell out why we are at it.

In the next couple of hundred years any number of things could happen. Actually, 50 years ago you could actually live safely in Inglewood (around LAX). It has a history of white racism (the KKK was there supposedly in the 1920s-30s), and now is a relatively dangerous place for a white (non-hispanic) to live. I'm not making any value judgments here, but am making the point that lots of things change over time, and maybe someday Inglewood will be a great mixed neighborhood that everyone wants to live in - or maybe it will be underwater (not because of anthropogenic global warming, but because we live on a dynamic planet where climate is fluid).

Jerry Brown is not a stupid person. I just wish he would be intellectually honest, and quit being - as most liberals are - dogmatically ideological.

We had a central depository for nuke waste, until Scary Reid talked the hero of Benghazi into closing Yucca Mountain.

Wouldn’t be surprised to find Reid owns all the land around the site. Or some Chinese company with his son or daughter on the board.

In another decade or so it will be Mexico’s problem.

The problem with Democrats is that they lie so much they start believing their lies. The “oceans are rising” has been a refrain of the warming kooks since they got over their ice age kick in the 70s. High tide means the world is coming to an end. It doesn’t matter if it isn’t happening. They believe it is. People must suffer.
