Skip to comments.Seas have drastically risen along southern U.S. coast in past decade

Scientists have documented an abnormal and dramatic surge in sea levels along the U.S. gulf and southeastern coastlines since about 2010, raising new questions about whether New Orleans, Miami, Houston and other coastal communities might be even more at risk from rising seas than once predicted.
The acceleration, while relatively short-lived so far, could have far-reaching consequences in an area of the United States that has seen massive development as the wetlands, mangroves and shorelines that once protected it are shrinking. An already vulnerable landscape that is home to millions of people is growing more vulnerable, more quickly, potentially putting a large swath of America at greater risk from severe storms and flooding.

Baloney! People are fooled into believing this because for over 50 years, the beaches on the east coast have been shrinking, while the west coast beaches are growing.
The opposite of Chicken Little! SMH
Sinking land, caused by too much Carbon sequestration.
Horse manure. Most sea level “rises” are due to land subsidence from pumping groundwater as in S. Florida. Subsidence around the Chesapeake is also due to that plus post-glacial deformation.
They rise dramatically twice a day, generally.
Washington Post and the Journal of Climate; both working for the same boss.
They’re just rising in the south...but no where else? That is so stupid it barely needs a reply. Yeah, the same thing happened in my pool the other day...it rose four inches at one end and stayed the same on the other end.
Utterly retarded. Explain to me how water on one end of the pool sits an inch higher than the other end.
The ground is sinking you morons. From all kinds of causes, water tables etc.
These jackasses would look out the window in an airliner and think the ground has fallen away.
Yours too? 🤣
We do not need references to your body parts on our forum. Your comment is not appropriate for women, children, or men. It also adds ZERO to the discussion!
So, up to 5”? Congratulations
Yes, they are all underwater now!
THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!
But the northern U.S. coasts are the same as ever. Sigh.
Here we go, pump & dump!
No they haven’t.
Hurry, EVACUATE MALIBU AND SANTA MONICA, Extreme Danger, RUN FOR YOUR LIVES
Yeah, right. The waterline at Tybee Island is the same as it was forty years ago.
