Scientists say Miami could cease
to exist within our children´s lifetimes

Business Insider, by Melia Robinson

Miami, a city of 430,000 people, could disappear within the century if the worst climate change predictions come true. New York Magazine´s David Wallace-Wells spoke with dozens of climatologists and researchers in related fields for an investigation on the outcomes of climate change if aggressive preventative action isn´t taken. The results were not pretty. (Snip) Within the century, a combination of polar melting, carbon emissions, and ice-sheet collapses could cause chronic flooding to wipe out Miami — and as many as 670 coastal communities, including Cambridge, Massachusetts; Oakland, California; St. Petersburg, Florida; and four of the five boroughs of New York City, according

While accepting his ill gotten Nobel Prize in 2007 the Gorebot thundered with assurance that in seven years the Arctic will be entirely ice free in summer in seven years. August 2014 had seen record year over year growth of the icecap for over three years and expeditions to measure the ice ´melt´ got stuck and had to be rescued.
They are still publishing this garbage??

Some scientists will say anything to draw attention to themselves. They are basically fund-raising on the back of fear. Their views are not sustained by the facts so fear is the only option left for them.

The world will cease to exist if the worst comet predictions come true. So what? When I was very young, I remember the summers being very hot. Now that I am older, the summers are still hot. Over 50-60 years there hasn´t been a change in the summers that I have experienced. So why would the world change to utter disaster in less than 10 years. That would take a beyond dramatic change like a comet strike. Somehow, I just don´t buy all the hysteria.

So the Earth is supposed to remain static, never changing? Look at the beautifully colored layers of sedimentary rock in the Grand Canyon. Every one of those layers was at the bottom of the ocean at sometime in the Geologic past.

Also remember Miami was built on sand which is on top of limestone. Just think sinkholes.

Miami´s excitable mayor recently declared that the city was going under water. That´s not true, nor will it be a century or more from now. Over time the oceans rise and recede, and the climate always changes. The only sensible thing for humanity to do is to do what the plant and animal kingdoms do: adapt. There´s nothing, positively or negatively, that mankind can do about the oceans to the climate. Quixotic attempts to "heal" the earth are a total waste of our wealth, and should be abandoned, along with politicians who keep insisting that we do something about it.

I have lived for over thirty years in a place on the edge of the Gulf where the tide can be observed, inch by inch, every day, right out my rear widow. Though my information is anecdotal, I can assure you that high and low tides are exactly where they were three decades ago. Whatever changes might have occurred in the ocean, they´re not noticeable here. It´s no different in Miami, regardless what their idiot mayor thinks.

If this is the best {rolling out the big guns) they can do in the wake of blockbuster papers like this one: http://www.lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=917718 the Warming Cultists are in big trouble.

I read that paper a week ago, and posted a link to all my social media websites. So far, crickets from the Warmists.

Hopefully, this whole Cult will cease to exist before Miami does. They are the ones who are underwater, being rapidly drowned by waves of truth.

A better place to instill fear is in Hawaii. If this comes true the Hawaiian islands will be half submerged. The climanaiaces fear that if all the icebergs floating in the ocean melt that sea levels will rise. Just like when they have a scotch on the rocks, when all the ice cubes melt, their drink will overflow the glass and spill out all over ther car seats.

When many middle-aged people think back to their childhood, they remember roaming the streets with their friends during long, hot summers. Our parents threw us out the door in the morning and instructed us not to come back until dinnertime. Often in charge of younger siblings, we strayed further than we should have, got into trouble and, by the end of the summer, had a collection of triumphs, scars and memories for life. But surely such memories are just nostalgia? The bit about the sun always shining probably is. Yet one thing is certain – the level of parental involvement

CAMBRIDGE — Just blocks from the multimillion-dollar brick mansions owned by Harvard University’s legendary all-male final clubs is a separate world. Here, drab office building basements and former storefronts have been retouched with white lace curtains, comfy couches, and brightly decorated walls. Scattered around Harvard Square, these rented spaces are home to several of the university’s sororities and women’s final clubs.

Judge to inmates: Get sterilized

A judge in central Tennessee is hoping to help repeat offenders “make something of themselves” by offering them a highly original and probably unconstitutional deal: reduced jail time in exchange for sterilization operations. Under a standing order issued by General Sessions Judge Sam Benningfield, inmates in White County, Tenn., can receive 30 days credit toward their jail time if they volunteer for vasectomies or contraceptive implants, as NewsChannel 5 reported Thursday. The order came down quietly in May, and already dozens of inmates have sought to take advantage of it. Thirty-two women have received implants of the hormone device Nexplanon, and 38 men have signed up

While there are doubtless celebrations in Moscow, the news that Sen. John McCain has irreversible brain cancer hit me harder than any such news since I sat in a seventh-grade classroom and our science teacher ran down the hall shouting, “The president’s been shot.” That president, JFK, was a war hero, too, but not one of McCain’s stature. Shot down over North Vietnam, crippled by wounds and tortured, McCain refused early release and remained in his Hanoi prison, suffering for years beside his comrades. Returning home at last, on crutches, he dedicated himself to serving the people of Arizona and the

Authorities in Florida say that a group of teenagers recorded the drowning of a disabled man last week — and did nothing to help as they made fun of his struggles. Jamel Dunn, 32, of Cocoa, drowned in a retention pond July 9. His body was recovered July 14, two days after his fiancee reported him missing. Late last week, a friend of Dunn´s family came across the video on social media and forwarded it to authorities in Brevard County. In the video, which was published by the Florida Today newspaper Thursday, the teens can be heard laughing at Dunn

The outcome of O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing, broadcast live Thursday, was clear from the very beginning, when chairperson Connie Bisbee addressed him not as Inmate #1027820 but as a star. “I’m a little nervous, so bear with me,” she said. It was an odd ceding of power: After all, there’s no law requiring televised parole hearings. But Simpson doesn’t just occupy a singular nexus between celebrity and the criminal justice system; there’s never been a figure like him in American life. Bisbee wasn’t alone in being starstruck. Her colleague, parole board member Adam Engel, wore an NFL tie. When Bisbee mistakenly declared

An organization representing top state election officials is complaining it´s being kept in the dark by the federal government after a new report showed the Obama administration was quietly making extensive plans — including the possibility of deploying armed troops — in the case of an election day cyberattack or last-minute propaganda efforts from Russia. Time Magazine reported on a document it obtained showing the administration´s plans, which noted that state and local governments would have the primary jurisdiction, but called for the deployment of armed troops to counter a "significant incident." The plan allowed for the deployment of "armed federal law

On June 28th, President Trump convened a roundtable at the White House that included victims of crimes committed by undocumented immigrants. The event was part of the Administration’s push to pass several new immigration bills designed to, in Trump’s words, “close the dangerous loopholes exploited by criminals, gang members, drug dealers, killers, terrorists.” A regular theme of the Trump Administration’s messaging on immigration has been to present undocumented “bad hombres” as an immediate threat to the safety and cohesion of the American family unit. But some of Trump’s immigration policies, in themselves, have endangered families across America. The stories below,

The Republican president has a job approval rating around 40 percent. The GOP has an unfavorability rating around 56 percent. And Republicans trail Democrats by nine points in an average of "generic ballot" polls. McCain´s opponents bridge the political divide following brain cancer diagnosis All of which makes it notable that the Republican National Committee is trouncing the Democratic National Committee when it comes to raising money, especially from small donors.The numbers are striking. In June, the RNC raised $13.5 million to the DNC´s $5.5 million. For 2017 so far, the RNC has raised $75.4 million to the DNC´s $38.2 million.

When many middle-aged people think back to their childhood, they remember roaming the streets with their friends during long, hot summers. Our parents threw us out the door in the morning and instructed us not to come back until dinnertime. Often in charge of younger siblings, we strayed further than we should have, got into trouble and, by the end of the summer, had a collection of triumphs, scars and memories for life. But surely such memories are just nostalgia? The bit about the sun always shining probably is. Yet one thing is certain – the level of parental involvement

WASHINGTON – President Trump campaigned on withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement and has expressed doubt that global warming is caused by human activity, but Democrats argue the American public still wants government action on climate change despite Trump’s defeat of Hillary Clinton. “I think there was a survey today in one of the papers that talked about the support he enjoys in the places he was strong in the election, and in those places people rejected his rejection of the Paris climate agreement, even in those pro-Trump areas they said ‘no’ to his rejection of the climate issue,” House Minority
