    These U.S. Cities Are Most Vulnerable to Major Coastal Flooding and Sea Level Rise | Climate Central - has a list of 25 cities that are vulnerable to coastal flooding, sorted by the populations at risk from this calamity. New York City was on top, Miami FL was second, and all the others were Florida cities except for Charleston SC and Atlantic City NJ.

    The page has a risk-zone map that is initially set to NYC, but that can go to anywhere in the world. For the sea-level rise indicator, choose meters to get a larger range (30 meters ~ 100 feet). The feet one only goes to 10 ft (3 m). Look at many coastal cities, You'll be shocked at how low many of them are. Even some inland cities are vulnerable, like DC, Philadelphia, and London.

    Ice is melting in Greenland and Antarctica. It is measured by the GRACE gravity satellites and their successors. Ice accumulates in the local winter and melts in the local summer - melting more than it accumulates. So Greenland and Antarctica are slowly losing their ice cover.

    Always what might be in a non specified future by some alarmists, or in 12 years by the prophets of doom that have no idea or the credible science to back up their falsehoods!

    How about showing one, just one prediction of doom that's actually happened!

    Let's strip away the idiotic rhetoric about "doom" and ask a meaningful question: have climate scientists accurately predicted changes in climate?

    The blog Carbon Brief looks at eight prediction, including the first five IPCC reports, and shows that yes, the experts have been accurately predicting warming since the 1970's.

    Never mind the hyperbole coming from politicians, because the scientific predictions are alarming without embellishment.

    Here's 50 years [only] of failed climate catastrophes from people who should know better before putting pen to paper.

    I can see it, now.

    Angelo's sitting in the lounge room in his faux-leather recliner, with a spare bath towel over the armrest so his arm doesn't stick to it while he's flipping channels, and he's watching The Bachelorette. There's an ad break, so he picks up his iPod, which is perpetually plugged into AC power because the battery went flat one time, and opens the Tapatalk app.

    Tapatalk shows him that there are new posts in a thread, so he clicks on it. The app takes him to the last post, rather than the first unread, because Tapatalk is shit, but dammit he paid $2.99 for it so he's gonna use it. There's been some new posts, and some of them seem to have replied to his last post, so it's time to post something else to keep them busy. The Bachelorette is almost back on; he needs make this quick or he might miss a change to ogle Angie in a bikini. OK: Bookmarks, "bing.com", "failed climate predictions", finds one he hasn't used yet, copy the link, back to Tapatalk, paste, something-something-pen-to-paper, post.

    Dammit, no bikini, but her nips are poking out. Heh heh, bet that wouldn't be happening if global warming was real.

    We are asking for predictions by climate scientists. Not people who know nothing of the situation.

    I suppose that Loren Pechtel, among others here, are the climate gurus, and anyone who disagrees with the " consensuses " is blasphemy and worthy of losing one's head! If this is not like being a cult member of some sort, I don't know what is!

    Is this your way of saying you don't have any failed predictions by actual climate scientists to offer?

    Because you've been asked how many times? and didn't provide one.

    "blasphemy" is not a word that refers to people.

    Your behaviour is.

    "Anyone who disagrees with the consensuses" The scientifically illiterate idiot mouthing off in the science forum.

    "Is blasphemy" is just plain wrong

    "and worthy of losing one's head" and is a big fucking crybaby when he gets called out on his dumb shit.
