    Sea levels may rise much faster than previously predicted, swamping coastal cities such as Shanghai

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/21/healt...ntl/index.html

    We haven’t got everybody yet so we’re trying harder.

    Global sea levels could rise more than two meters (6.6 feet) by the end of this century if emissions continue unchecked, swamping major cities such as New York and Shanghai and displacing up to 187 million people, a new study warns.

    The study, which was released Monday, says sea levels may rise much faster than previously estimated due to the accelerating melting of ice sheets in both Greenland and Antarctica.

    When CNN tells you it's raining, leave the umbrella at home. It's going to be a great day.

    I live near the beach and it doesn't seem to me to be any higher now than it was 30 years ago or more. When I start to notice then we have a problem.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.
    Psalm 55:22

    Especially the part about “we KNOW it’s going to speed up tomorrow... or next week.... or next month... anyway, soon enough to drown cities all over the world- maybe.”
