Sea levels set to keep rising for
centuries even if emissions targets met

Original Article

Sea level rise is set to challenge human civilization for centuries to come, even if internationally agreed climate goals are met and planet-warming emissions are then immediately eliminated, researchers have found. The lag time between rising global temperatures and the knock-on impact of coastal inundation means that the world will be dealing with ever-rising sea levels into the 2300s, regardless of prompt action to address the climate crisis, according to the new study. Even if governments meet their commitments from the landmark 2015 Paris climate agreement, the first 15-year period of the deal will still result in enough emissions

Scare people away from seaside properties, buy on the cheap, sell high when this is revealed as yet another fraud. Smart.

If sea levels rise it's because God wills it, not because mankind causes it!

Seems to me there are 2 reasons for sea level rise. 1 expansion of water due to rising temps, 2, melting of land based ice. If the temps don't go up, neither happens. Temps are currently falling and if the solar cycle is as expected, temps will fall a lot more.

Sea levels have been rising since the last ice age. And will continue to do so until the next ice age.

Oh yeah! Just try to stop it. But this is all just imaginary speculation intended to create panic and fear among the masses of skulls full of mush. The lag time between thinking and acting means that stupid people are everywhere. If you can do something about it. Then go out now and do it today. I recommend ordering a couple of cubic yards of sand delivered to your driveway in a dump truck along with a pallet of sandbags you can order from Home Depot, and a shovel, and get busy.

So it seems that the effect of oceans rising takes 300 years for its full effect. So, my question is, what happened in 1719 to get the ocean level as it is today?

This business of the oceans rising because of melting ice needs to be studied. If you fill a glass with ice to the brim and then let the ice melt, where is the water level. Have you ever seen the water overflow the glass under these circumstances? While pondering this, there is more ice under the oceans than above....

Yes, it is because of the glaciers melting....we are in an Interglacial Period for the last 10,000 years, coming off of the last Ice Age which covered the northern hemisphere down to about 40 degrees latitude with an ice sheet that was up to several miles thick. As that has melted, the water has raised the ocean levels.....and they continue to go up at about 6 mm (1/4 inch) a year, as they have for centuries. The Guardian is an extreme leftist newspaper, always pumping communist propaganda, has been forever.

But what most global warmest idiots don't understand is continental rebound, and the weight of sea ice causing the seas and oceans to be higher than it actually is. when Ice melts on large areas of land the land will actually rise up, and when sea ice melts the water levels will drop. Experiment one can do; fill a glass full of ice and then fill the glass with as much water without overflowing the glass. and let the ice melt and see what happens. (Climate change people will not like the results)

Water, when frozen, expands. Ice, when thawed, takes up less space than it did as ice. If you leave your filled water hose outside and it freezes, it will break open because the ice expands.

#10, water expands when it freezes by about 9%, so when it melts, it decreases in volume. So, yes, your points are exactly right. Rebound does raise the continents (they are floating on the molten core, so when the weight (miles thick ice weighs a LOT) is removed, they move upward like a boat with weigh taken out of it, but very very slowly. The continents have not fully rebounded from the Ice Age yet. And yes, the floating sea ice melting will lower or the ocean level. But all the LAND ICE melting (glaciers) does raise the oceans. Still some of that going on, but not huge amounts. So, slight ocean rising is happening. It would be catastrophic if water didn't expand when it freezes. Now ice floats, because it expands, decreasing its density, and by floating, protects the water from freezing under it. If ice sank, the surface liquid water would be exposed, and would freeze and soon the oceans would be frozen solid top to bottom. Very bad.

As pointed out by others, the sea level has been rising at a pretty steady rate, undisturbed by our modern society. Now the Guardian seems to have discovered that truth but of course ignores the meaning behind it, that nothing is causing the sea levels to rise any faster bringing into doubt the Alarmists whole premise. But let's say the Alarmists have a point of concern but their proposed solution has NO EFFECT on the ocean level. Further, they have already conceded that their "solution" will have almost NO impact on the global temperatures, perhaps .1 degree. They want trillions of dollars and a major undermining of modern society to achieve ... nothing? The real point is that they want us to turn our money over to them and give them massive power over our lives and when it doesn't work, they can say "We told you it wouldn't work." . Anyone that signs on to this insanity has severe cognitive dysfunction.

Sea level was once much higher. See Thor Heyerdahl, who found an abandoned port in India some 150 m above current sea level. This is just more eeking from the AGW crowd. The Maldives were expected to be underwater by now. Hasn't happened. The Port of New York is about the same as when the Dutch bought Manhattan. Except for the results of some dredging, that is. Who believes this stuff? Why is New Orleans still in business? Should have been completely underwater years ago. More nonsense from the left.

I grew up on the Florida Gulf Coast and I still go back to my hometown to visit. The Gulf of Mexico hasn’t risen a millimeter as far as I can tell. If the eco-loons were correct, all of the barrier islands would be long gone. But they’re still there. The only thing that effects them some is hurricanes, which can move the sand around, but that’s it. I’ve heard from some of the “scientists” that the oceans will rise in some places but not in others. My question about that is - why doesn’t that happen in my kitchen sink?

A Bolivian mayor was dragged through the streets, covered in red paint and had her hair cut by an angry mob Wednesday, as weeks of violent political unrest continued to plague the South American nation. Patricia Arce, mayor of Vinto, a city of 60,000 in central Bolivia, was hauled out of the local government building and pummeled by masked people carrying sticks and hurling stones, the news network Telemundo reported Thursday. The crowd accused Arce of busing in supporters of incumbent President Evo Morales to break up an anti-government demonstration, during which two protesters were rumored to have been killed,
