GASP!: Melting Greenland to Flood U.S. Cities

It had been a few weeks, so they decided to throw another ice-melt-flooding-coastal-areas fear story out there. The pattern is that the media alternates talking about Greenland's melting ice sheet (which IS NOT melting), the Arctic, the Antarctic, and glaciers. If they repeat this ice-melt tripe enough, they figure you'll give in and think you've always known this hogwash to be true.

Now, I'll repeat my prediction, since they KEEP REPEATING theirs. NOTHING WILL HAPPEN TO U.S. CITIES IF WE DO NOTHING! Case closed. There is ZERO global warming happening as a result of increased CO2.

Check the GASP! series and Dr. Brignell's warmlist for more tall tales...if you like horror movies.

Greenland ice could fuel severe U.S. sea level rise

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - New York, Boston and other cities on North America's northeast coast could face a rise in sea level this century that would exceed forecasts for the rest of the planet if Greenland's ice sheet keeps melting as fast as it is now, researchers said on Wednesday.

Sea levels off the northeast coast of North America could rise by 12 to 20 inches more than other coastal areas if the Greenland glacier-melt continues to accelerate at its present pace, the researchers reported.
