Nope. Read the article carefully. Here's a piece from it:

Using 1992 as a starting point, Boon projects that the sea level at Norfolk could rise about 2 feet by 2050.

That follows thousands of years in which the sea level went up only about a foot a century.

Boon said that if present trends continue, 2 feet could go up to nearly 6 feet by 2100.

Got it?

How green is Al Gore's $9 million Montecito oceanfront villa?

By Wendy Koch, USA TODAY
How inconvenient is this news? Former vice president Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, bought a gated $8,875,000 ocean-view villa in Montecito, Calif., where Oprah Winfrey also owns a mansion, the Los Angeles Times reports

No, but the people on the coast will. It will be a long, slow process, so people will have a chance to move away. Your comment makes me want to say that you only care about your future, not your children's. People are not willing to kick the financial can down the road because of our children, but they are very willing to kick the climate change can down the road for them to deal with. So they will have a good financial situation, but they won't have any water or food to eat because of drought and all the coastal cities will be under water.

Got it?
True, however, politivans told us twenty years ago that we'd all be under water by 2010, and we're not. A vast difference between science and sleazy vote-getting.

Do you have ANY PROOF that mankind is the cause of the "rising sea levels"? I thought not. Where was mankind during the last ice age? Did we cause the global warming then?

A variety of different measurements find steadily rising sea levels over the past century.

Again, is there any PROOF that we caused it? NO there is not. Who caused the end of the ice age? Not us.

What? You need to learn science.

When the Earth comes out of an ice age, the warming is not initiated by CO2 but by changes in the EarthÂ’s orbit. The warming causes the oceans to give up CO2. The CO2 amplifies the warming and mixes through the atmosphere, spreading warming throughout the planet. So CO2 causes warming AND rising temperature causes CO2 rise.

Climate reacts to whatever forces it to change at the time; humans are now the dominant forcing.
