Sea Level Rising, Ready or Not

2 Cities. One Red. One Blue.

One following the science. One in the dark.
It’s going to be an interesting century.

    Sea levels are rising in some places and falling in others, mostly from the ground rising or falling. Pacific ocean rise on ground not falling or rising is 3 inches in the next 100 years, Per the French who have measured since 1805 it is 4 inches in the next 100 years in the Atlantic. I am pretty sure if people do not build on sand bars, in marsh lands and at sea level, that much rise will not bother them for a long long time.

    Average world-wide sea level has been rising ever since we started moving out of the last ice age.

    Since the British Empire’s economy was tied to maritime activities, we get the best pre-1900 non-scientific numbers from British records. But the majority of peer-reviewed climate scientists pretty much agree on these two facts:
    1) sea level rose 20 cm (8 in) from 1900 to 2000 which is about 2 mm per year
    2) satellite measurements from 1990 forward put the rate a 3.5 mm per year
    The speedup between 2 and 3.5 has been attributed to the human release of CO2
