Posted on 07/12/2014 8:07:50 PM PDT by Brad from Tennessee
North Carolina has just outlawed the use of long term sea level predictions, when making planning decisions for sea front developments in the Outer Banks.
The new rules restrict planning applications to the use of 30 year sea level rise predictions and forbid the use of predictions for longer timeframes.
The controversy started 5 years ago, when North Carolina State Scientists predicted that in 100 years, sea levels would rise by more than a metre. This caused uproar from owners of billions of dollars worth of valuable sea front properties, the value of which would be adversely affected by a 1m SLR.
Willo Kelly, of the N20 Consortium, accuses the North Carolina State Scientists who produced the 100 year prediction, of not conducting scientific research, and suggests they instead conducted a biased literary review of cherry picked information, to produce an unbalanced report. . .

‘Scientist’ - Your beachfront lot is going to be underwater soon. You might as well sell it to me for $10.00.
Making any major money decisions on the basis of 30 year sea level rise is stupid. Such decisions need to be made on 100 year storm data.
You really don’t want to hear my 1,000,000-year prediction - no matter anything about AGW.
