The oceans are stirring. Deep beneath the sea, primeval forces have been unleashed that may engulf us all – unless we take to our boats to escape the rising tides.
That, as it happens, is the plot of John Wyndham's science fiction classic of the 1950s, The Kraken Wakes. But it also seems disturbingly close to what some scientists are now predicting. Once, rising sea levels were seen as a threat to distant coral islands: toodle-oo for Tuvalu, goodbye for the Gilbert Islands and curtains for the Carterets. But this week scientists raised their forecast of the rise in 21st-century sea-level from about a foot to about a yard.
In case you missed it, this article was from 2009, and the IPCC report just revised upward maximum expected sea level rise by 2100 - but since all they ever do is revise their disaster estimate upward and that by only the most modest of amounts - and since we are already over half way to the 2040 target of 2 C temp increase globally, tell ya what -
why don't we just wad that report into a tight little ball and admit the facts -
and we can thank all of them orange boyee bone heads screaming their alarm over nannie state teat suckers
Clearly, they'd rather suck an abundance of Koch instead.
