Study: Sea Levels Rising; Storms Could Wipe Out Jersey Shore
CBS Philly ^ | March 15, 2012

Posted on 03/15/2012 11:20:59 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (CBS) — A new report shows sea levels are rapidly rising and the study predicts the Jersey Shore could be underwater in a matter of decades.

The organization “Climate Central” in Princeton, New Jersey released the ocean study Wednesday.

The group found global warming is expanding sea water and causing ice sheets to melt.

Scientists believe by the end of the century, water levels will be three to four feet higher, with bigger storm surges that could wipe out low lying areas.

Of course, the backstory on this piece of hype is something along the lines of: the head of “’Climate Central’ in Princeton, New Jersey” is desperate for a grant, which he or she will split with the friend at CBS who wrote this article.

Actually, it'd just move the jersey shore. Considering that climate in the past has gone from ice age to warmer than now without man's influence, if it's warming up now, it'd be better to use our resources moving folks inland than wasting it by working on getting humanity back to the stone age.

Wikipedia entry begins: Climate Central is a nonprofit news and research organization that analyzes and reports on climate science. Composed of scientists and science journalists, the organization conducts scientific research on climate change and energy issues, and produces multimedia content that is distributed via their website and media partners.[1] [2] [3] [4] Climate Central has produced content shown on PBS NewsHour and The Weather Channel.[5] [6] Real fine objective source there. And of course the media parrot it all back like it's new science. Barf. TC

It won't actually wipe it out. It'll just move it westward to Pennsylvania...and isn't it about time that other states had some beachfront property.

And think how nice it will be to navigate NYC in a gondola.

The Jersey shore is going to be wiped out anyway by the next monster hurricane that travels up the the East coast. They’re riding out an incredible string of luck. Wasn’t Agnes in 1972 the last hurricane to heavily damage New Jersey?

‘The group found global warming is expanding sea water and causing ice sheets to melt.”

Numbers, please...such as, how much has sea level risen in the past 50 years?

Scientists believe by the end of the century, water levels will be three to four feet higher, with bigger storm surges that could wipe out low lying areas.

Believe? Nope, these clowns are most certainly NOT scientists. However, they more than qualify for membership in the West Wing Clown Show of Felon/Cretins.

Question for Climate Central.

If the climate is so out of control that we have to give someone our tax money for reasons yet explained to the American people, why are we being asked to give up a proven energy source in oil for a self admitted unknown quantity in solar, wind and water power?

Except that sea levels are not rising:
Morner remarks that "prior to 5000-6000 BP, all sea level curves are dominated by a general rise in sea level in true glacial eustatic response to the melting of continental ice caps," but that "sea level records are now dominated by the irregular redistribution of water masses over the globe ... primarily driven by variations in ocean current intensity and in the atmospheric circulation system and maybe even in some deformation of the gravitational potential surface."

With respect to the last 150 years, Morner notes that "the mean eustatic rise in sea level for the period 1850-1930 was [o]n the order of 1.0-1.1 mm/year," but that "after 1930-40, this rise seems to have stopped (Pirazzoli et al., 1989; Morner, 1973, 2000)." This stasis, in his words, "lasted, at least, up to the mid-60s." Thereafter, with the advent of the TOPEX/POSEIDON mission, Morner notes that "the record can be divided into three parts: (1) 1993-1996 with a clear trend of stability, (2) 1997-1998 with a high-amplitude rise and fall recording the ENSO event of these years and (3) 1998-2000 with an irregular record of no clear tendency." Most important of all, in his words, "there is a total absence of any recent 'acceleration in sea level rise' as often claimed by IPCC and related groups."

What it means

Writing on behalf of the INQUA Commission on Sea Level Changes and Coastal Evolution, Morner says that "when we consider past records, recorded variability, causational processes involved and the last centuries' data, our best estimate of possible future sea level changes is +10 ± 10 cm in a century or, maybe, even +5 ± 15 cm." Hence, in his words, "we have to discard the model output of IPCC (2001) as untenable, not to say impossible (Morner, 1995; INQUA, 2000), and we cite the Gilgamesh Epos from about 5000 BP saying: Lay upon the sinner his sin. Lay upon the transgressioner his transgression." Or to put it more bluntly, as Morner does in the final sentence of his abstract, "there is no fear of any massive future flooding as claimed in most global warming scenarios."

Not even close. Not even IPCC says this. A plain flat out falsehood. No competent scientist believes either part of this sentence.

If "scientists" believ this, and not just "some scientists", then it must be settled "science". Fortunately for me, I live on the gulf of Mexico and the waters haven't been rising here for the 26 years I've lived here. Too bad about Jersey though.

Not at all really. You would need a 10 foot minmmum surge over mean high tide to get any real damage. The barrier islands are the most vulnerable - an ocean breach to the bay like in Ash Wednesday Storm of 1962 has the most potential for damage.

Noreasters are worse than hurricanes.

Now, if you have a category 5 head due west with the eye over the tip of Sandy Hook at high tide - you could have the entire lower Hudson under 20 ft. of water. Not much gouging by waves or currents - just alot of flooding.

I'm sorry, but bringing up facts will not be tolerated in any discussion of climate "science".

You should know better than to try and argue based on actual evidence.
