Climate change deniers’ new focus: Sea-level rise

Having largely failed to convince most Americans of their junk science agenda, the denier industry has turned its attention to the rising sea level around the globe. This article looks at the problem from a North Carolina perspective. And, yes, it matters. The Outer Banks barrier islands are major players in the regional economy. I know this from my own visits.

  1. According to Wikipedia “Since the Last Glacial Maximum about 20,000 years ago, sea level has risen by more than 120 m (averaging 6 mm/yr)”

    So sea level has risen 120m over the last 20k years, you somehow thought it had stopped until recently, am I correct?
