Protecting Birds From Non-Existent Sea Level Rise

Ten years ago today, federal officials wanted to protect California birds from three to four feet of sea level rise over the next century.

A wonderful idea, except that sea level isn’t rising in California. High tide at La Jolla is the same as 150 years ago.

    So, CA watermelons intended wind turbines to be bird roosts rather than bird beaters?

    Four feet in a century (sic). Half an inch a year. If plovers can’t move a half an inch a year, we can’t save them.

    It looks to me as if high tide at La Jolla today is actually significantly lower than 150 years ago.

    Watch that outer-most rock… note the wave-undercut ridge along that rock’s perimeter in the old picture is far above the water level today.

    Birds can fly, can’t they? Up in the air? Without our help? I think I’ve seen it on You Tube. We could stand in three feet of water and hold up little nests for them. Humans need to stop being so selfish and start helping less fortunate life forms. — I can’t believe they even printed this article.
