IPCC – US Beaches Gone By 2020

In 1995, 2,500 of the world’s top climate experts announced that east coast beaches were doomed by the year 2020, due to sea level rise.

At the most likely rate of rise, some experts say, most of the beaches on the East Coast of the United States would be gone in 25 years.

Scientists Say Earth’s Warming Could Set Off Wide Disruptions ‚Äì NYTimes.com

East coast beaches are sinking due to post-glacial rebound, and the rate hasn’t changed. It isn’t clear how an increase of 0.0001 mole fraction CO2 over the past century would affect geologic processes in the mantle.

As always, climate scientists had/have no clue what they were talking about. But with each new failure, their certainty increases. Now at 99%.

    How does isostatic rebound lead to apparent sea level rise? The opposite is true in Scandinavia; rebound leads to apparent sea level drop.

      Good point Shane. If the land was covered in thick ice then rebound leads to sea level drop. In the UK
      Scotland is rebounding, but Southern England the opposite applies as the Ice didn’t reach that far. The thick ice in Scotland caused Southern England to rise relative to sea level.

    I assume the 99% certainty is from the IPCC. We need to remember that unlike true science this number is not arrived by calculations. It is not even the product of those claiming to be scientists. When the politicians in the IPCC summarize the scientific report, they pick the certainty level. With their certainty increasing as it has become more and more obvious this is flawed science, we can be certain that they picked the number for political reasons.

    When did the New York Times become the stupid newspaper ? Just 2 more years to go and all those East Coast beaches will be gone according to the NYT. Well that must be right… after all why would the NYT lie or mislead ?
    Kind of like the ice free Arctic BS of the Goracle and other earth has a fever fables
    to pump the global warming industrial complex .
    Grow up NYT or shut down . You’ve becoming a real bad joke .

    Propaganda is as propaganda does. It is outrageous that totally wrong climate change garbage has been used to set federal, state and local policy. Warning to all “climatologists” who exist on government largess:
    The party’s over losers, go find a real job.

    If the coasts were to be moved inland as leftist science concludes, where are the money grubbing leftist speculators and schemers like Al Gore or Elizabeth (Pocahontus) Warren? They should be buying up nearby inland real estate that is soon to become beachfront, further padding their fat bank accounts. Hmmmm…

    Seriously though, the left never acknowledges that coastlines are ALWAYS shifting with currents and storms. This has always been true. Leftist propaganda pseudoscience tells us that every change in coastlines is proof positive of man-made global warming, as if there were no other explanation possible.
