Oceans Rise Most In 28 Centuries.....

Can’t wait to hear all the Republican solutions during the next debate.
If you have an alcohol problem you should make a drinking game during the next Republican debate. You can only drink when you hear a candidate discuss (or acknowledge) the climate change problem.
Guaranteed you won’t touch a drop all night. You will be cured in no time.
The oceans are rising faster than at any point in the last 28 centuries, and human emissions of greenhouse gases are primarily responsible
flooding that is starting to make life miserable in many coastal towns — like Miami Beach; Norfolk, Va.; and Charleston, S.C. — was largely a consequence of those emissions, and that it is likely to grow worse in coming years.
scientists confirmed previous estimates, but with a larger data set, that if global emissions continue at a high rate over the next few decades, the ocean could rise as much as three or four feet by 2100,
Experts say the situation will grow far worse in the 22nd century and beyond, likely requiring the abandonment of many of the world’s coastal cities.
“I think we can definitely be confident that sea-level rise is going to continue to accelerate if there’s further warming, which inevitably there will be,”
Largely because of human emissions, global temperatures have jumped by about 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit since the 19th century. Land ice has started to melt all over the planet, and seawater is expanding as it absorbs heat. The seas are rising at what appears to be an accelerating pace, lately reaching a rate of about a foot per century.
