Today's sea-level rise is BELOW normal - Ice Age Now
This talk of unprecedented sea-level rise is complete nonsense.
"Today’s sea-level rise is BELOW normal-By Robert Felix
During the last ice age almost all of Canada, along with parts of Europe and Asia, were buried beneath one to two miles of ice.
At the same time, sea levels stood 350 to 400 feet lower than today.
Sea levels were so low that the entire continental shelf, at least in eastern North America, was above water.
Many states on the eastern seaboard were twice as big as today.
New Jersey’s shoreline, for example, stood 60 to 100 miles east of its present location.
Same in the west.
...Why were sea levels so low?
Because that’s where the water came from to create those huge ice sheets.
Literally millions of cubic miles of water had turned to ice.
Then, about 10,000 years ago, the ice began to melt and sea levels began to rise.
Rising sea levels have been the norm
If you run the numbers you’ll find that sea levels have been rising an average of .42 to .48 inches (just under half-an-inch) per year for the past 10,000 years.
Rising sea levels have been the norm, in other words, for 10,000 years.
And that brings us to today.
What are sea levels doing right now?
Sea levels now rising slower than normal
According to NASA, sea levels are rising 3.4 mm (about 1/8th of an inch) per year..."
