    The feds just boosted their worst-case sea-level rise estimate for 2100.

    2014 (NCA): 6.6 feet
    2016 (NOAA): 8.2 feet

    Tsk, tsk, tsk, there's simply not enough charts, graphs and highlighted text here yet. Maybe add a BIG GRAPH with nice colors...

    Sea levels could rise so much this century that they'll unleash 25 times the amount of destructive floods

    On average, the sea level is rising between 2 and 3
    millimeters per year and has accelerated in recent years.
    This is partly due to oceans heating
    up
    as water expands when it warms, and it's also related
    to the melting of land-based ice like glaciers.


    So what should we expect over the next, say, hundred years?

    We’re now breaking global temperature records once every three years

    If you think that seems like a lot of record-breaking hot years, you’re
    right. The streak of three consecutive record hot years is unprecedented
    since measurements began in 1880. In the 35 years between 1945 and
    1979, there were no record-breakers. In the 37 years since 1980, there
    have been 12. The video below illustrates all of the record-breaking
    years in the Nasa global surface temperature record since 1880.

    Too bad, so sad!
    I, for one, have been coming here because I crave Normalcy. The trolls here arrived to destroy Normalcy, they should expect to be treated as the malfeasant subversives they are!
    They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
