Beaches To Disappear Again

Experts say half the beaches are going to disappear due to climate change.

Half of world’s beaches will disappear by 2100 because of climate change, experts say | Fox News

They also disappeared in 1987.

Southern California beaches disappear every winter, and come back every summer.

Coastal bluffs provide more sand to California beaches than previously believed

If climate experts knew anything about science, they would know that beach sand is largely formed by erosion of rocks, and that beaches follow sea level, which has risen 400 feet in the last 20,000 years.

And if journalists were actual journalists, they would talk to geologists about geology, instead of climate modelers – who live in a make-believe world.

    Well look at the bright side, at least this should finally finish off that whole “beach or mountain” thing, and bring us all together.

    Sediment laden rivers will provide nearly all of the material needed for beach construction especially during spring melt and heavy rain storms when rivers can have an enormous eroding and transporting capacity. . When you prevent rivers to do so by building dams the sea will start eroding the coastline.
    Also building promenades to close to the seafront has a destructive effect. A beach is an absorber of the force of a wave like the Crumple zone of a car. If you put obstacles where the force of the wave can reach it will eat the beach.

    Thanks Tony.
    On the Gold Coast in Australia they had a large loss of sand from beaches back many years ago – and alarmists claimed we would never have the beaches back.

    A very expensive sand pumping system was put in to try to address the situation. It has not been used for decades as currents changed and the beaches were back to normal again.

    One has to wonder about journalists… I have my own business and have also had to work for hard nosed owners where if you did not perform you were out. These guys do no research whatsoever and just parrot out what they see from their favourite websites or bloggers with no attempt at fact checking. How are they still in a job??

    Beaches have a life cycle; this is not new information or newly discovered information.

    I am so tired of living in a permanent memory hole where every single, tiny, minute change is trumpeted as “unprecedented.”

      Not once in the history of the planet has today looked exactly like yesterday. Progressives need to get better at accepting the natural progression of Earth’s processes.

    This report was commissioned by The Joint Research Centre for the European Commission, s Brussels quasi government department. In other words it follows an agenda to push climate alarmism and is financed as such.

    Considering how right Hansen was with his 1988 predictions
    so far,
    + the fact that Fort Denisons sea level is right now 6 cm below 1914 sea level
    (and a similar thing with bishops rock on the oppostite side of the planet)
    beaches in 2100 will look pretty much the same as they do now
    and some “smart” propagandist will claim then that by 2130 beaches will disappear .

  7. G W Smith says:

    They actually believed that beach sand came from rivers? Incredible! I guess they have never been to tropical islands, Hawaii for example, which have almost no rivers, and atolls have no rivers at all, yet plenty of sand. What are they studying in college these days?

    Date: 30/04/18 Arjen Luijendijk et al. (2018) Scientific Reports 8: 6641 (2018), doi:10.1038/s41598-018-24630-6
    Analysis of satellite derived shoreline data indicates that 24% of the world’s sandy beaches are eroding at rates exceeding 0.5 m/yr, while 28% are accreting and 48% are stable.

    The State of the World’s Beaches
    Abstract — Coastal zones constitute one of the most heavily populated and developed land zones in the world. Despite the utility and economic benefits that coasts provide, there is no reliable global-scale assessment of historical shoreline change trends. Here, via the use of freely available optical satellite images captured since 1984, in conjunction with sophisticated image interrogation and analysis methods, we present a global-scale assessment of the occurrence of sandy beaches and rates of shoreline change therein. Applying pixel-based supervised classification, we found that 31% of the world’s ice-free shoreline are sandy. The application of an automated shoreline detection method to the sandy shorelines thus identified resulted in a global dataset of shoreline change rates for the 33 year period 1984–2016. Analysis of the satellite derived shoreline data indicates that 24% of the world’s sandy beaches are eroding at rates exceeding 0.5 m/yr, while 28% are accreting and 48% are stable. The majority of the sandy shorelines in marine protected areas are eroding, raising cause for serious concern.

    Gone by 2100. Any fool can make such a prediction, simply because anyone reading it will be dead in 80 years time. So will the author. Who will know whether it was right, let alone who will remember? These predictions are sheer lunacy.

  10. Gamecock says:

    Gotta love the fake precision:

    ‘used a highly accurate laser scanning technology to measure the contribution of coastal bluffs to the supply of beach sand in a 50-mile stretch’

    This is funny! The accuracy of the tool is completely unrelated.

    And ‘Ph.D. candidate Adam Young’ is fraud. He hasn’t earned the right to use PhD with his name. This credential escalation is one of the markers of junk science reports.

    Sorry to be off topic but I couldn’t see any other contact details.
    In conversations with climate alarmists, one of them said that CO2 produced by fossil fuels is different to CO2 produced by other means.
    Something to do with isotopes, I think he said.
    Said it was harmful to plant life precluding them from taking up certain nutrients.
    Any thoughts Tony?
    I suspect it’s bogus, although he did cite research papers.

    I own a rental property near the beach just North of Melbourne, FL. The recent hurricanes have caused some serious erosion at the beaches in this area. it looks to me like the sand has just returned to a lower, natural level. The beach surface looks firmer and more natural. I know that they add sand here at the beach from time to time. Does anyone have any insight into this? Is concern for this erosion valid, or had the beach just been built up to an unnatural level?
