Rising Stupidity Levels Threaten The UK Press

The Telegraph says rising sea levels threaten to drown the Yorkshire Dales out of mountain-hood.  I was at the Yorkshire Dales earlier this summer, and the mountains appeared quite robust.

Had these geniuses done 10 seconds of fact checking, they would have known that sea level is falling there.

    I thought England was rebounding from the last ice age, so that would cause sea levels to fall and mountains to become higher.

    • The Northwest is rebounding, but the Southeast is sinking, Doug.

      • Bloke down the pub says:

        From Wiki- In the UK, the Ordnance Datum (the 0 metres height on UK maps) is the mean sea level measured at Newlyn in Cornwall between 1915 and 1921. Prior to 1921, the datum was MSL at the Victoria Dock, Liverpool.

        So although the average sea-level around the UK may be unaffected by glacial rebound, because, for the purposes of the ordnance survey, it is measured in the Southwest, the sea-level will be shown to be rising.

    Yes, [Sea levels] are currently “dropping” at an “incredible” rate ! (An “Astounding” Rate!!!)

    I recently in on the South Side of Bloody ole England, standing on the shoreline looking South towards Belgium/France (Pronounced “Fronce”, wee wee) and I couldn’t believe what I saw !

    The “English” Channel was “Bone-Dry”, the Ocean water, gone !!

    I saw “hordes” of Islamic Migrants walking “North” on the Sea Floor towards Britain, when they saw Me, they (The “Hordes” of Islamic Militants, oops I meant Migrants?) tried hiding behind or inside of the Deep Sea Caves, but I saw them and said, “Right now, are you of the People’s Front or the Popular Front” but it turned out that they (The…, Oh read the above!) were from the “PFJ” of which I then said, “Right then, off ya go!” !!!

    Later they turned Me into a “Nute”, but I got better !

    And “ALL” of this from the [Global Climate/Warming/Cooling/Heat/Arctic/Glacier/Carbon/Human/Petroleum/Exxon/Mobil/Gore/Obama/NSIDC/NOAA/NASA] effect ? ! ?

    These are truly Difficult/Dangerous/Hard/Strenuous/Arduous/Tough/Burdensome/Demanding/Grueling/Wearisome TIMES!!!

    AND THIS IS THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH, AND I GUARANTEE YOU, [[ I-NEVER-LIE ]] !

    Sincerely yours,

    And “your” FUTURE PRESIDENT…

    But something doesn’t need to be above sea level to be considered a mountain. There are mountains under the sea. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/scientists-discover-mile-high-mountains-towering-deep-under-the-sea-9773215.html

    • RickS says:

      Those are “Global Warming” Mountains !

      Until “Global Warming” those “Mountains” didn’t exist !!

      [Global Warming] a/effects EVERYTHING, including the “CO2” atmospheres of Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Your-Anus !!!

      Notice that a “Left” out the Planet Puto !

      I don’t want any inter-political-translation issues ?

      Go Figure ???

    It wouldn’t be the first time the sea level rose there:
    Doggerland
    For decades North Sea boatmen have been dragging up traces of a vanished world in their nets. Now archaeologists are asking a timely question: What happens to people as their homeland disappears beneath a rising tide?

    Ok, now that I’ve been on my medication for a while now and have a much more calm, logical thought process on the subject of climate change instead of freaking out with anxiety and paranoia there’s things I’ve come to realize that others need to realize that no one’s saying.

    If climate change was as big of a threat that so many people claim, if the science behind it was a true accurate science and it was about to kill us all and we’ve passed the point of no return and there was nothing we could do to fix it…….we wouldn’t be able to go on with our daily lives as we do. The national guard would be knocking on our door, there would be tanks rolling down our streets. There would be curfews, we would not have our freedoms.

    An Inconvenient Truth wouldn’t have been a movie, it would have been a worldwide news announcement. They wouldn’t want to be prosecuting people who deny climate change, the military would be going in and shutting down all fossil fuel companies, they would be doing everything they could, everything it took to put a complete lid on this and save us.

    If this was a complete true accurate science, if this was really all happening, there would not be scientists who work for NASA and the IPCC and so many others who say that it’s a false science, everyone would be made aware, in agreement, and everyone would be doing everything to stop it from happening.

    But you know what? THAT’S NOT HAPPENING!!!!! We still go on with our daily lives and we still have our freedoms. The problem is people don’t take the time to stop and realize this, they just want to say that the science is settled and we’re all gonna die and there’s nothing we can do about it.

    If that’s true, please explain to me why I’m still allowed to walk out of my door every day

    Those are mountains? They should have been labelled hills to begin with.
    Says a reader from British Columbia.

  7. CheshireRed says:

    The ‘story’ originated from the Guardian before being lazily copy n pasted into the Telegraph. Both organs are a shadow of their former selves. Enough said.

  8. BobbyK says:

    What’s the matter Me? No response? Did you realize that I’m not who you think I am and I’ve actually been honest the whole time I’ve been here? I’ll keep posting it over and over and over, look at what I put here and the responses I got to it from Neal, Colorado, Gator, and AndyG55 if you still think I’m not being honest. If you want to argue with their responses, be my guest. https://realclimatescience.com/2016/08/top-climate-story-of-2016/#comment-22579
