Maybe It’s Time We Stopped Wasting Money Studying a Problem And Spent That Money Adapting to It

Well said Bob.

Bob Tisdale - Climate Observations

The Washington Post published an article today titled When sea levels rise, high tides will spill into communities far more often, study says.

What a revelation!  It’s almost as foolish as the studies that costs taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars to tell us that heat waves will occur more often (and cold spells less often) in a warming world.  A grade schooler could figure those things out.

  1. Bob Tisdale’s post is wrong.

    Ask yourself: If sea level rise is “part of the multidecadal variations in the North Atlantic ocean temperatures known as the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation,” as Bob claims, why has it kept rising through several cycles of the AMO, and even accelerating (Church and White, Surv Geophys (2011) 32:585–602
    DOI 10.1007/s10712-011-9119-1)?

    There’s also this recent study: “We provide statistical evidences that the observed SLC [sea-level change], at global and regional scales, is beyond its natural internal variability.” (Becker, M., M. Karpytchev, and S. Lennartz-Sassinek (2014), Long-term sea level trends: Natural or anthropogenic?, Geophys. Res. Lett., 41, doi:10.1002/2014GL061027.)
