John asked in EnvironmentGlobal Warming · 1 month ago

If global warming is real and the ice caps are melting then why is my local Florida beach the same level it has been for the past 50 years?

I have measured the water line to the beachfront buildings at high tide and low tide several times a week for a few months and it is literally the same as it was roughly 50 years ago.

    Global warming is real. Along with global cooling. It's part of the natural occurrences that happen with the earth's climate. What is NOT real is the assertion that human activity, through carbon dioxide emissions, is causing any changes to the climate. That's an absolutely ridiculous theory, and anyone with even the simplest understanding of thermodynamics would know this.

    It amusing you think anyone would believe you have been measuring your local beach fo 50 years, you do understand that many of Florida’s beaches are regularly rebuilt, there’s even video of it happening.

    Funny you didn’t notice if your there so often measuring things.

      It was 7 inches per century, it’s substantially higher than that now.

    Sea level actually isn't level. At some points its several feet higher than at other points. Gravitational variations, prevailing winds and ocean currents cause these differences. As for you local conditions you may not notice a a few inch variation one way or the other. For some additional information clock into Climate Change and US Navy.

    Is it?

    Anyways, the threat is in the future, not in the past. Continued warming will absolutely melt ice and your local Florida beach will be under water.

    John,

    You should know that Dirac is paid to post here.  I AM 100% SURE ABOUT THIS.  They do this crap on other websites. 

    Other paid trolls are Super Hans and Climate Realist.

    Because the ice caps are not melting, there is no warming and the hoax is failing. Nature will not be fooled.

    Because the amount of change is less than the precision of your measurement. It's quite difficult to measure sea level accurately. Were the predicted tides the same? Was the barometric pressure the same? Was the ENSO state the same? What were the wind fetch conditions? Were the waves from the same direction and same height? Was the height of the ground the same over all those years? All of those things would contribute to your sea level. For a change that is likely measured in inches that would be beyond your ability to measure.

      Sea level rise is only one of many problems caused by anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. There is also climate change and ocean acidification. Most importantly for sea level, though is that the ice sheets have only recently started melting and now the ocean rise is accelerating.
