angry old white guy, the kind that'll keep the balls neighborhood kids kick onto his lawn. and what scientist? this fuck got his meterology credentials doing correspondence course 30+ yrs ago and his degree is in journalism.

May be he is a scientist of the Kellyanne Conway school... "He started with a conclusion, and the evidence brought him to the same conclusion.”

These assets were designed and built to be resilient to historic sea levels and storm intensity. But sea levels rose on average nearly half a foot over the 20th century, a rate faster than that in any century since at least 800 BC. The rise so far is mostly owing to thermal expansion (warmer water takes up more space), but future sea level changes are likely to be driven by melting ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica. Sea-level rise and related storm surges are the two biggest threats to the navy’s coastal infrastructure, according to navy officials. Not only do such floods inundate roads and damage buildings, but they put ships being repaired in dry docks at risk. (An independent report by the Union of Concerned Scientists showed that a three-foot rise in sea levels would significantly threaten 55 naval installations in the United States valued at $100 billion.)

The average rate of sea-level rise masks substantial variation among regions. As the navy celebrates the centennial of its enormous Norfolk base, the sea level there is a foot and a half higher than when the base was established, during World War I. Since much of the base sits less than three feet above sea level, heavy rains and higher-than-usual tides are flooding it more often, submerging some of its piers and immersing the electrical wires and steam pipes that run underneath. Pier inundation now happens at least monthly, impeding training and maintenance schedules and thus fleet readiness. Sea levels are rising at the Norfolk base an inch every six years—more than double the global average rate. Tidal flooding at Norfolk is expected to increase from the current rate of nine times a year to 280 times a year by 2050, and low-lying areas could be underwater 10% of the time. And navy engineers expect sea levels to rise at Norfolk another two to four feet over the next 80 years, by which time as much as 20% of the base’s land might experience daily floods, essentially becoming part of the tidal zone.

Who do you want to believe? Technical people from the US military who are on the front lines of combating these changes, or a bunch of know nothing yahoos?
