Study Shows Sea Level Rise to Threaten West Coast Tidal Wetlands Over the Next 100 Years

CORVALLIS, Oregon – The U.S. Geological Survey and Oregon State University released a report this week examining Pacific Northwest tidal wetland vulnerability to sea level rise. Scientists found that, while vulnerability varies from marsh to marsh, most wetlands would likely be resilient to rising sea levels over the next 50-70 years. Beyond that time, however, most wetlands might convert to intertidal mudflats as sea level rise outpaces the capacity of tidal marshes to adapt.

After all the evidence I have seen that the media and government are hyping a phony climate catastrophe, is it any wonder that the NFL would unjustly attack the New England Patriots? Scientists have shown that the balls were right where they should have been. Pump up a tire or a football or even several and you will see the air from the pump increase. Duh. Everybody knows that. that would have made the balls even softer on the cold field. Apparently science is not the NFL’s forte.

In Maine, scientists see signs of climate change

By David Abel GLOBE STAFF  SEPTEMBER 21, 2014

ACADIA NATIONAL PARK, Maine — With milder winters sparking a surge in deer ticks, park rangers now duct-tape their ankles while combing the wilds of Acadia, where native flowers are disappearing at alarming rates and invasive species are thriving.

Along the rocky coast of Georgetown, Maine, lobstermen are finding more black sea bass in their traps, spiny intruders that until recently were almost never spotted so far north. In a pond in Brunswick, an increasingly prevalent disease has ravaged amphibians.

In a state with the highest percentage of forested land and a long, famously scenic coastline, where timber and fisheries remain at the heart of the economy, climate change has become an immediate concern.

Heat waves, more powerful storms, and rising seas…

Arctic sea ice is recovering, with a large increase in multi-year ice over the past four years. Meanwhile, Antarctic sea ice area is plummeting, and may soon drop below normal for the first time in four years.

This graph from the 1990 IPCC report shows a similar cycle which occurred 40 years ago, when Arctic Sea ice increased and Antarctic sea ice plummeted.

Climate scientists pretend that they don’t know what happened before 1979, because they are fraudsters paid to lie about the climate in order to push the global warming agenda.

Apparently some CNN hack has written an article about deniers in Oklahoma. It is a long, rambling piece, with the usual cliches about creationism, 97%, settled science, droughts, blah, blah.

Paul Matthews has a good summary here.

But he alerts me to one particular section where the ubiquitous Katharine Hayhoe crops up with some astonishingly dishonest comments. Seasoned Hayhoe watchers will no doubt be aware of her regular attempts to mislead by, for instance, ignoring climate history from the inconvenient past. Nevertheless, she really hits new lows this time:

Ferguson, the rancher, was giving me a half-smiling death stare throughout my mini-rant. We batted ideas back and forth several times, with him pulling preclipped charts from an agricultural magazine off of his desk.

“We don’t see an honest debate going on,” he said.

One of the charts, which used data from upper troposphere, appeared to show…

The chart below eloquently illustrates the effect that GISS tampering has had on temperatures in the last five years.

It starts by showing the annual temperature anomalies for 1998 and 2010, as they were reported at the end of 2010, i.e. 0.56C and 0.63C respectively. Progressively as each year has gone by since then, the anomalies for 1998 and 2010 have been subtly increased, until currently they are shown as 0.63C and 0.71C.


Anomalies as published by GISS at the end of 2010 through 2014, and at June 2015

The anomalies are set against a baseline of 1951-80, which means that the increases either mean that the historical temperatures for 1951-80 have been reduced or recent ones increased.

Remember this when people deny that the net effect of adjustments always seems to go in the same direction.

Guest essay by H. Sterling BurnettWillie SoonMore than 500 scientists, colleagues, and friends of Willie Soon, Ph.D. signed a letter sent, along with accompanying supporting documents, to the Smithsonian Institution’s Board of Regents defending the award-winning solar physicist against false allegations he failed to disclose conflicts of interest in publications requiring such admissions. The letter notes Soon, a researcher at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, part of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, has for a quarter of a century strictly followed Harvard-Smithsonian’s conflict of interest guidelines.

The letter was authored by Lord Christopher Monckton, David Legates, Ph.D., and statistician William Briggs, who had co-authored with Soon a highly popular study in the Science Bulletin of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. As the popularity and media coverage of the Science Bulletin article grew, mainstream media outlets began to publish years-old false allegations fed to them by a Greenpeace staffer.

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. - J Robert Oppenheimer.
