More Than 75% Of The World’s Beaches Stable Or Growing

“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.”

In 1995, the New York Times predicted most East Coast beaches would be gone by the year 2020.

“At the most likely rate of rise, some experts say, most of the beaches on the East Coast of the United States would be gone in 25 years.”

    Beaches form from interaction between the land and water. The New York Times believes that, if the sea shore water rises, beaches will stop forming. Waves will only rush to shore at the current water level.

    Thank you Tony, for all these reminders of the dominoes falling on the global warming/Climate Change scam.

    If our kids were still being raised learning to read Mother Goose*,
    they might have recalled the lesson of “The Boy* Who Cried Wolf”

    Repetitious caterwauling by alarmists just fades into background and no sane
    people give a rat’s a$$ anymore

    And nobody cares about millimeters of sea level change when they struggle
    to buy food, fuel, and medicine

    *Just to needle the biologically ignorant out there 😉

    When has the New York Times ever been correct in any of their never-ending fear-mongering predictions?

  5. Gail Wilhelm says:

    It’s my understanding that many beaches are being mined or scoured for sand to make cement.
    Is this ever addressed by these researchers?

  6. Graeme No.3 says:

    The beach near the Irish village of Dooagh on Achill Island vanished in Spring storms of 1984 after waves washed away all the sand, ending the summer visitors trade.

    Villagers stunned as entire beach that washed away 30 years ago reappears overnight (actually over a week) in 2017
    Must be due to Climate Changing?

    The act of citing satellite data or tree ring data, or showing clips from “Where the Boys Are,” may soon be defined as “domestic terrorism.” Come to think of it, “Where the Boys Are” is clearly a white supremacist film and, accordingly, should be banned outright.
