three feet of sea level rise. When is that going to start happening?

Web Link

Clearly, there is no acceleration in the local sea level rise. The 3 foot value is nonsense based on voodoo models. There is no observational evidence to back up the claim. Complete BS

There has always been climate change. Greenland was once green. So the Northern Hemisphere is warming and the Southern Hemisphere is cooling. Antarctica has all time record sea ice.

Meanwhile Mercury, Venus and Mars are warming which lends credence that the forces of nature have far more to do with global warming than man.

APG is just another academic scam to get more research money from Governments and our politicians are foolish enough to fall for it.

However, I must admit that Obama's terrorist pal Bill Ayers with all his Weather Underground bombing did contribute significantly to local warming.

Let's try this again. We hear yet again from Frosty [portion remove - avoid attacks] who doesn't know the difference between weather and climate.

it is not an attack to describe Frosty as scientifically illiterate. He's demonstrated his lack of scientific knowledge and literacy on these boards repeatedly. It's not an attack to call a spade a spade.
