So ya looking for a little excitement?  cool smirk
Coming to a shoreline near you, even if it takes a bunch of decades, it’s still a coming…

Sea Levels to Continue to Rise for 500 Years? Long-Term Climate Calculations Suggest So
ScienceDaily (Oct. 17, 2011) — Rising sea levels in the coming centuries is perhaps one of the most catastrophic consequences of rising temperatures. Massive economic costs, social consequences and forced migrations could result from global warming. But how frightening of times are we facing? Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute are part of a team that has calculated the long-term outlook for rising sea levels in relation to the emission of greenhouse gases and pollution of the atmosphere using climate models.

Still trying to figure out what to make of this video, but if you want exciting. . . . . . .

Sea level data set to music. Yeah, that’s right.
January 29, 2012
Vermeer’s and Rahmstorf’s “Global sea level linked to global temperature” (PNAS, 2009) relied on Church’s and White’s “A 20th century acceleration in global sea-level rise” (GEOPHYSICAL RESEARCH LETTERS, VOL. 33,) for their sea level data.  Church and White built their sea level time series from the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) tide gauge data.

The following video shows all the PSMSL tide gauge data so you can search for a sea level rise acceleration.  Or you can dance or sing along!

It starts slow, but when the graphs start coming it goes a tad too fast.  Fortunately with this here computer it can be stopped, even moved backwards {unlike the real world}.  But, like I said not sure what to make of it…

Damn! What a pig of a movie! Kevin Costner should have been shot for it. Shouldn’t it still be snowing on Mt. Everest?

He’ll be shot second, right after Mel Gibson.  wink

So in 500 years we could not develop satellites to produce very thin plastic sheets to block sunlight reaching the Earth?

I always thought that there was something screwy about the guy, you know “Mad Max” an all and then that anti-Jewish espousal crap. I did like him in the “Patriot” though. Still not quite as bad as Tom Cruise.

I prefer Cruise over Gibson; Mel’s acting (along with his movies) never impressed me.

That’s like saying I prefer Limbaugh over Beck.  LOL

I think Mel Gibson had the potential to become a very good director. I hated the bloody scenes in The Passion of the Christ but other than that I thought I was very well done. And I loved Braveheart. Both movies also had a wonderful music in them, which I don’t think was a mere coincidence.

I know what I would do if I were Gibson. I would marry a Jew…

I hate Gibson but I loved him as William Wallace. Braveheart is one of the best movies ever, imho.

Back to the original topic:  I’m really disgusted because I won’t be around to profit when my home not too far inland from the Pacific will become expensive beachfront property.  LOL

FYI

http://web.mit.edu/press/2012/storm-of-the-decade.html

‘Storm of the Century?’ Try ‘Storm of the Decade’
With climate change, today’s ‘100-year floods’ may happen every three to 20 years, according to new research.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass
.

Today, a “100-year storm” means a surge flood of about two meters, on average, in New York. Roughly every 500 years, the region experiences towering, three-meter-high surge floods. Both scenarios, Lin notes, would easily top Manhattan’s seawalls, which stand 1.5 meters high.

But with added greenhouse gas emissions, the models found that a two-meter surge flood would instead occur once every three to 20 years; a three-meter flood would occur every 25 to 240 years.

“The highest [surge flood] was 3.2 meters, and this happened in 1821,” Lin says. “That’s the highest water level observed in New York City’s history, which is like a present 500-year event.”
