    Somehow we still have beaches despite the fact that sea level has risen by 120 meters in 18000 years.

    Yeah but….we know that the Big Oil executives and their myrmidons bring suitcases full of sand when they go on vacation and spread it on the beaches in the dead of night….

    The New York Times lies about just about everything – and has done for a very long time indeed. Like the Guardian, the New York Times covered up the murder of millions of people by Stalin and other Marxist rulers.

    According to local government and state university data in the New England state where I live, beach accretion has been occurring in some beaches since 1938, which is the year they chose to begin their detailed survey.
    Most of the additional land was added towards the end of the 20th century and the first years of the 21st century.
    No detailed scientifically measured data published since then, except the usual fear-mongering ‘climate change warning’ propaganda, but they will have to come up with something, because this shoreline data is used for the cadaster and tax assessment of beachfront properties. By law, they have to update these things every 18.6 years, a period that corresponds to the major lunar cycle, which affects tides around the world, and the shoreline is defined by the tide lines.

    Beaches are pretty wide here in Hilton Head. I don’t have a frame of reference, but there is no sign of imminent beach loss that I see. The oldest lighthouse around here seems to be unaffected by SLR.

    Are those “then” and “now” beach photos taken at the same tide state? I don’t see the article stating if they are or not. Just curious.
