I've been walking the beach on the Atlantic,for 25 years now,since moving from Lowell.I'd say it's 10 feet narrower,with icebergs melting most of the cause of it.Unless they moved state route A1A back 10 feet,and i didn't see them do it,water is definately rising.Sea turtles are drowning in the shell.Ozone,man,natural?,i don't know,but it's happening,before my eyes.
Erosion, shift in weather patterns, the land rising or falling due to tectonic movement --- lots of reason besides rising sea levels for your observations. You need some lessons in critical thinking skills and understand that lots of things could create the same effects you listed.

The Sun has sunk pretty low by printing the moronic Backtalk from the idiot who wants to tell us that global warming has been proven to be a farce. I've seen stupid posts to the Sun Backtalk before, but this one takes the cake.
Ok, if you are so sure they are wrong -- prove that global warming is due to mans activity. Our planet has gone through far more extreme variations in temperature and CO2 content than we see today and those periods could not have been influenced by man. So prove your theory is true.

So the books gice false information about global warming? Are you a scientist, or have you been listening to that right-wing TV stationm that's "fair and balanced"?
It's warming, if you listen to scientists out on the glaciers, icecaps, and other indicators. Permafrost is mud in some places. The polar ice sheet is melting. Birds we've never seen are appearing here; northern chickadees are being replaced by Carolina chickadees. Trees like the sugar maple that we used to consider part of our landscape are dying out because of salt and warmer weather.
If you want to argue cause, how can we prove the cause? But the globe is warming. Accept it.
So what-- we have had warming and cooling periods many times. What is your point? The farce is the fact that these scientist tried to skew the data to support the conclusion that manmade CO2 was the reason for global warming. Then they and the UN tried to set up a tax scam using that data.

In a survey done last July, 97% of 1400 scientists agreed that global warming was real and is caused by human activity. So I guess they're all basing their opinions on cooked books by left wing environmental moonbats. Congratulations on being able to read MoonBatHunter. Now tell us what you're reading? I love how you guys draw sides based on your politics. Science isn't Republican or Democrat. It is what it is. I bet you don't believe in evolution either.
Science is republican and democrat -- Science tends to support he who owns the gold. Most of these scientists get there research funding from the government. In addition, 1400 scientist is such a small number when compared to the total number of scientist in the world that you statement is irrelevant and easily skewed with the grease of government funding.

I agree with reducing pollution -- but, since when is CO2 considered a pollutant? It is a naturally occurring gas. Since most of this planet is made up of carbon based life forms -- I find it amazingly convenient that CO2 is now the evil pollutant of this century.
CO2 is poisonous in sufficiently large concentrations. Those concentrations are surprisingly low - at 7% of your atmosphere, CO2 will kill you in a few minutes. It's not because of low Oxygen, either. An atmosphere of 93% Oxygen and 7% CO2 will kill you.

"According to NIOSH, concentrations of 40,000 ppm or higher should be regarded as immediately dangerous to life and health. Exposure to very high concentrations (e.g., exposure to 6 percent volume CO2 for several minutes or 30 percent volume CO2 for 20-30 seconds) has been linked to permanent heart damage, as evidenced by altered electrocardiograms."

Ahhhh, yet another angry, ignorant bigot from the Northeast(what ARE the odds?), using regional stereotyping to foment his beligerance and hate and just for good measure throw in a bit of anti-Semitism.

Do you run one of those cheasy T.V. ads "one call that's all" call Roonie Dooosh and get your settlement super-sized.

But hey, all is not lost skippy, I hear Owl Gore still has some of those bogus carbon credits for sale(he's the Bernie Madoff investment champ for simpleton libs and greenie-weenies), special black Friday price 3/1 sale and he'll make it 2/1 for all slip-n-fall lawyers.

Yes, however 7% concentration of co2 on this planet is light years away and may never happen at all.
Next iceage, who knows?

Co2 is presently at 0.039% of the Earth's atmosphere and mans contribution to that concentration is less than 1% of that number. 7% concentration is the pipe dream of all pipe dreams for the global warming scammers and greed-mongers, furthermore without the presense of co2 gases the planet and all of it's living creatures would die, lord knows we could certainly stand to lose the global warming clan and the Earth wouldn't skip a beat.
Maybe we could hook them up with a Jim Jones style co2 cocktail from the tailpipe of a 75 Olds Vista-Cruiser wagon, you know so they can hook up with the mother ship , she will only be in our orbit for the next few years.

Try not to fall for Chicken-Little "The sky is falling, the sky is falling" nonsense.

Taxes in Ga., across the board, including the big one(property taxes) come in at less than what you pay to the union-goon, corrupt liberals that run your turd-world state for corrupt union sluggs to direct traffic at construction zones.
I haven't run the numbers in the past two years, however last time I did, Property taxes alone in your state were 300% higher per similar community,
HOLY COW 300% higher on average per similar community.
How can that be?
Do some research before you come back with that Keith Olber-wussy bull@%it.
Dude, I'm no detective and I don't even play one on TV but based on your statements in this earlier post, I'm fairly certain your claim to be from the Merrimack Valley is complete BS.

No amount of name-calling is going to change my mind and no amount of rational debate is going to change what little mind you have.

I could share the links that ranked states by total tax burden (sorry, they're not from lib-turd web-sites) but you'd use some twisted logic to tell us why the stats must be based on left slanted lies. So I'm not going to bother. By the way Einstein, the last time I checked, auto insurance wasn't a tax so it doesn't factor into the equation.

How 'bout that carbon credit scam the Chicago Exchange shut down this summer, with massive lawsuits to follow.

Chelmsford boy from birth, sorry to burst your delusional bubble.

Sorry to tip over your little liberal apple cart skippy, but your silly "data sights" about the AGW scam are all based on "simulations" phony simulations inserting massively bloated exaggerations of what MIGHT happen if the grossly inflated and fraudulent conditions were to occur, and THEN they pass that crap off as science!
And you lib-stains bought it!
LMFAO!

Follow the money skippy, for every pseudo-scientist (store bought by AGW crowd) that spouts the AGW lie there are 17 REAL scientists that blow the hole scam right into orbit.

Don't forget to stock up on your heating oil skippy, I hear it's going to be a real chilly winter in Taxachusetts.

I am aware that given a large enough concentration of CO2 in the air that death can occur. However to reach the 7% concentration you are talking about would be a near impossible feat. You are also assuming that the earthís environmental engine is static and does not compensate for changes. Which we all know it does. CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere have been dramatically higher in the past; we are currently at the lowest levels seen for the planet. We also know from plant biology that a concentration below 275 ppm means plant death. Atmospheric CO2 is 0.0385% of the total atmosphere, and human produced CO2 is 0.001925% of the total.

CO2 concentrations over time:

Cambrian Period:(543-490 mya) averages out to 7,000 ppm
Ordovician Period (490 - 443 mya) averages out to 4,500 ppm
Silurian Period (443 - 417 mya) averages out to 3,000 ppm
Devonian Period (417 - 354 mya) averages out to 1,200 ppm
Carboniferous Period (354 - 290 mya) averages out to 400 ppm
Permian Period (290 - 248 mya) averages out to 1,900 ppm
Triassic Period (248 - 206 mya) averages out to 1,400 ppm
Jurassic Period (206 - 144 mya) averages out to 1,800 ppm
Cretaceous Period (144 - 65 mya) averages out to 800 ppm
Tertiary Period:
Paleogene (65 - 23.8 mya) averages out to 700 ppm
Neogene (23.8 - 1.8 mya) averages out to 500 ppm
Quarternary (1.8 - present) averages out to 350 ppm

My comment about CO2 was in response to your "since when is CO2 considered a pollutant?" It is true that CO2 concentrations in open atmosphere are nowhere near lethal levels, and will likely never be at those levels. It is a common misconception, however, that CO2 is always harmless, and I sought to dispel that notion. Every year, some people who put themselves in enclosed spaces with dry ice die. Other often overlooked sources of CO2 are auto exhaust, space heaters,and decay of organic material. In an unventilated space, any of those can cause death.

39 , fat and bald sitting in your underwear in mommies basement popping your leg-zits is no way to go through life skippy.

But hey, if you put your tinfoil cap on just right and tilt it towards the mothership in the Northern sky you just might be able to get todays latest installment of the "the sky is falling, the sky is falling" from DNC headquarters concerning your faux religion of Global Warming.

Owl Gore thanks you for support and his continued lifestyle of the rich and not-so-famous for buying into his global warming hoax.

That Kool-Aid they serve over at plantation DNC must be some kind of powerful.

Hey Whoopi, where you hidin' girlie-girl?

I know it's real hard for the duped to escape from being "stuck on stupid" however if you read post #'s 28 and and 31 on this thread maybe, just maybe, you will be able to noodle out the silliness that is this "manmade global warming hoax" be sure to pay real close atention to the location of the decimal point concerning co2 saturation levels in the atmosphere,(Don't believe me or Merlin?, do little research yourself online, it's so easy even a lib can do it) however that directive might just bit above your paygrade, maybe if you ask your mommy she will be able to help you .

Back to the basement Whoopi.
