Climate Moron Of The Day

You just can’t make up stupid like this.

Nation’s capital sinking into the sea, study says

new research from the U.S. Geological Survey and the University of Vermont shows that the land in the district — where the Lincoln Memorial was built on silt dredged from the Potomac River — is expected to fall 6 inches or more during the next 100 years, raising flood fears and adding to worries about the effect of rising sea levels on low-lying cities across the USA.  “It’s ironic that the nation’s capital, the place least responsive to the dangers of climate change, is sitting in one of the worst spots it could be,” Paul Bierman, a geologist at the University of Vermont in Burlington and senior author of a new paper about Washington’s descent, said in a statement. “Will the Congress just sit there with their feet getting ever wetter?”

Nation’s capital sinking into the sea, study says

This genius does a study about land subsidence, and somehow ties it to a topic (climate) he obviously understands nothing about. Is he actually stupid enough to believe that Congress controls sea level? No one in Congress has wet feet. The Lincoln Memorial is thirty feet above the River.

Washington flooded in 1936, due to water flowing down the Potomac. It has nothing to do with the ocean or sea level.

    Too bad it’s not really sinking into the ocean. If it were, I might root for some acceleration of the process :)

  2. Oh, I get it. Just like the volcanoes suddenly going off way up north due to melting glaciers being less heavy on them, all of this new rising ocean heavy water on the east coast is causing the land to subside. A soon-to-be runaway feedback. I should write a paper on this, but likely somebody already has…..

    The biggest cause of inteacoastal flooding is manmade suburban sprawl and water mismanagement. It’s wrongly called sea level rise. The flooding is local and downriver from massive asphalt and concrete jungles sending rainwater runoff where nature used to soak it up into the aquifers, before. The Army Corps is another gov’t outfit getting away with fraud, besides NASA and NOAA.
