Last month,October, NOAA reported sea level has fallen every year since 1997. Very small decline of fractions of an inch yearly. Water expands and contracts with temp. Lower ocean temp may be the cause of most of the sea level change. Along Galveston coast one inch equals 7 feet of horizontal expansion.
"Yes, sea level is rising at an increasing rate."
"Global sea level has been rising over the past century, and the rate has increased in recent decades."
These sentences were taken from a NOAA website.
Somebody on this forum, possibly Gary, recently quoted an October NOAA report that contradicted all other NOAA sites, but I was unable to find it then, and unable now. Weird.
Steve Fouga goes to the beach and reports sea level is rising, then falling, rising then falling, rising then falling.....[wink]
"Steve Fouga goes to the beach and reports sea level is rising, then falling, rising then falling, rising then falling....".and that's how mean sea-level is determined.
But is Galveston Island under water as predicted by climate change proponents?
The predictions you give, are from what Scientific Research Group ?The proponents would be who?Why would you be spreading, what you think is false?
Check the sources cited by Algore's "An Inconvenient Truth".http://an-inconvenient-truth.com/links-and-resources/
I did not find "Galveston being under water", in the link you provided Maybe I missed it, or maybe it not listed.
Look at the links to sea levels along the coast. Last I heard, Galveston was an coastal barrier island. Has this changed?[whistling]
Did not find "levels along the coast" but did find the link to Water Links , which has 22 links, none saying "levels along the coast" .You do know that different coast lines, have different sea levels.
Carlos: [But is Galveston Island under water as predicted by climate change proponents? ]
You made this same improbable claim to me also Carlos. I think the time has come for you to back up your claim or apologize for misleading us.
Thanks Joe. Good summary. We can all argue, using data either real or imagined, about the causes at a particular location, but barrier islands move while we like our buildings to stay in one place, and therefore we will always be in the business of attempting to modify nature. I think there's an argument that the Corps of Engineers should be maintaining our beaches since they built the jetties that disrupted the sand flow as well as the ones on the Mississippi that divert sand into deep water.
Come on, Carlos.
Sea level is a measurable thing, and people measure it every day, in several ways, all over the world, and have for a long, long time. That's how we know it's rising. Sure, it varies continuously, and it's different everywhere, but its average is rising. Two of the most important reasons are that sea water is expanding as its temperature increases and that land ice is melting and flowing into the ocean.
These are facts, Carlos.
