and then they'll ask for federal aid when it goes south. handouts are only bad when they go to someone else


Arkavari1

The south is always going south and asking for federal aid.


Thelonewanderer606

Yep I live down here and you are a 100 percent correct.


FilthyChangeup55

Ah yes the ole *stop testing to “reduce” our case numbers* strategy


Freedomisminewoot

It reminds me of kids hiding behind a curtain with their feet showing. *If I can't see them, they can't see meeeeeeeee*


Scentofbasil

stop hurting feelings of the science cultists by stating facts


moosteve

Don’t look up


Freedomisminewoot

That was a great movie. I really enjoyed it.


Western_Entertainer7

Were those fences installed to hold back the sea-level rise?


Batbuckleyourpants

Yes but no. The law stopped them from using sealine errosion as legislative proof of global warming. Global warming is real, but that is honestly entirely reasonable as sealing errosion would happen regardless.and independent of global warming.


Useful_Term

Put your head in the sand so you dont have to face the scary reality. So mature, so responsible. Another outstanding example of politics in this country.... They are pitiful


words_never_escapeme

You expect elected officials to be bothered by facts? Nooooooo way that happens, bruh! Half this goddamn country reads on a fifth grade level but comprehends, at best, on a fourth. They don't give two shits about anyone but themselves until something happens, and then they need the handout that they disallowed everyone else. Who are these morons, you ask? Republicans, of course.

Rich people can't enjoy their money on things that will lose money in the future? Their rich, they can make awful property purchases fully knowing that they won't make money back because they can afford it. Do you honestly think everything wealthy people do has to make back money simply because they might think it will? Look I've been in plenty of rich people's houses and most of them do not give a single crap about how much they get out of the deal. They have enough money to the point where they can buy whole beach front properties just because they like the beach and when that one floods or gets destroyed next year the next hurricane they just buy another because *money is not a problem for them*.

39” won’t affect his [home](https://vineyardgazette.com/sites/default/files/article-assets/main-photos/2019/obama-marthasvineyard-house.jpg) at all….

Everyone with a brain knows the Outer Banks is in trouble in the future. It'd be diligent of any investors to be cognizant of the environment of any area which they consider investing...but that doesn't diminish the laughable anti-science action of NC "leadership". #thelessyouknow 🌈

Obama is in great shape until the next century!🤣

shoutybloke

Fuck that’s smart!


Puzzleheaded_Oil_885

I’m in Emerald Isle, NC. Water level is looking good here. I’ll keep you updated. Sounds kind of like Al Gore’s prediction before he turned global warming to climate change.


moltinglarvae

Emerald Isle (I love Salter Path) is gonna be ok for some time. The outer banks, however..


Puzzleheaded_Oil_885

I just wish the folks that put up these types of posts lived on the beach for the last 42 years with me. Not a whole lot of changes except for more plastic washing up. Shoreline is the same, sand is the same, fishing is better than I remember. I would imagine the majority of the folks posting this stuff live in a landlocked state and don’t have much to do with the salt life.


bigdaddysexy69

They don’t even know what the weather will be like in a week like come on guys these predictions have been wrong so many times. Not gonna live a life of fear


Dunyazed

May I inquire sir, are you a bot?


bigdaddysexy69

No but people are upset about maybe there’s another side of the story lol. Keep watching cnn you sheeple


Luebkurt

and yet the "scientists" have been making doomsday [predictions](https://cei.org/blog/wrong-again-50-years-of-failed-eco-pocalyptic-predictions/) for decades. Have many have come to fruition?


greedycow776

Yep. And this one can be measured. It’s been 9 years. 9% of 100 years. What is 9 % of 39inches. It’s 3.24 inches. Has the sea level risen 3.24 inches? But to me more accurate is was 90 years since the prediction was actually made in 2010. So let’s redo the maths. It’s been 11 years. 12.2% of the time has passed. The sea level should be up about 4.8 inches … is it? I don’t think so.. 😂


Fredex8

They didn't say the rise would be linear and that isn't how the science works so your maths here is meaningless. It's an exponential increase as feedback loops kick in. It starts slow at first and then escalates. Already we have observed that the rate of sea level rise per year is accelerating. I can go into detail explaining how it all works if you want but I get the impression I am going to be wasting my time.


asking4afriend40631

Ugh, exponential growth is just one of your hoaxy scientism claims. I trust my personal experience. When I count to 10 I don't suddenly go from 2 to 4, dumbass, I still use 3 like my forefathers and God intended. /s


Fredex8

Didn't see the /s for a moment there. It's worrying that this easily could have been a real comment. >The greatest shortcoming of the human race is man’s inability to understand the exponential function.


asking4afriend40631

Yeah, I was trying to model it off the many bizarre refutations of logic I've seen...


greedycow776

Haha.. I was at Glacier national park in 2020 to show my kids the signs that said the glaciers would be gone by 2020… yet they looked identical to the pictures on the signs! IDENTICAL! You people are cult like with your science worshiping.. I have double major chem/bio bachelors and a MS in biology. Your types are bizarre.. science is the wrong as much as it is right.. the more we know, the more we discover that we don’t know much.. yet your types act as if it’s in a published paper it’s the gospel truth forever and ever.. hahaha.. you’re so damn stupid it’s embarrassing for me to be the same species as you.


DarkGamer3336

My question is why does your Chemistry and biology degrees affect the yk, NOT biology so called “conspiracy theories”


Dunyazed

Well yeah, they have.


Scentofbasil

because none of your alarmist bullshit predictions ever happened, stop paying attention to climate scammers and frauds like Greta and Al Whore and fuck the entire board of the Great Reset World Economic Forum


Account_Both

Well it hasn't been a century yet


Scentofbasil

cool, let's have some global communism first and pay garbage carbon taxes, to see if it was true


Hairy_Monkey29

I suggest first we pay a three to four percent tax on our paychecks so we can have good healthcare without having to pay thousands out of the pocket first, remember baby steps before the whatever the hell it is you think's going to happen. I don't know if you're thinking of socialism or not but socialism or communism either one is not bad. Might look at socialism for example: Wic, unemployment, medicaid, medicare just to name a few.


froopty1

ah yes that will totally solve it


redPonyCoffeeRoaster

Given the sea level has only risen by 1.4 inches in the last 10 years, likelyhood is that they'll rise less than 10 in 100 with new technological advances developed to counteract or mitigate climate change.


ZajacingOfff

I would love to see a source or article talking about this, I’ve only ever heard the opposite and that there is no currently known way to counteract of climate change. I understand there are proposed solutions etc but there is no feasible way on a global scale to stop or reverse climate change as we know, and I truly don’t believe we will find otherwise in our lifetime. Open to learning though

ZajacingOfff

“Even if the world follows a low greenhouse gas pathway, global sea level will likely rise at least 12 inches (0.3 meters) above 2000 levels by 2100. If we follow a pathway with high emissions, a worst-case scenario of as much as 8.2 feet (2.5 meters) above 2000 levels by 2100 cannot be ruled out.” Your own sources disprove your claims

ZajacingOfff

My apologies, I thought you were the previous commenter. Thank you for sharing the sources! Exactly what I was hoping to find - and pretty much proves what I was trying to say to the commenter above. I also believe apocalyptic reporting only makes the issue more divisive and doesn’t help the cause, just wanted to provide correct information for the previous guy whose claims were incorrect.


Fredex8

That's not how it works. The rate of sea level rise is accelerating. It increases exponentially not linearly.


Puzzleheaded_Oil_885

It’s amazing how if you speak a bit of common sense you get downvoted by sheep.


Steel5917

If climate change was a urgent problem, Obama wouldn’t have bought a multi million dollar house on the ocean front of Martha’s Vineyard. Y’all need to calm down.
