Daniel Walsh mentions in his article in the Press of Atlantic City, “EPA says seas could destroy New Jersey coast,”
Studies show the pace of sea-level rise could be increasing. Last month, the White House released data collected by the U.S. Geological Survey that estimated sea-level rise at 1.64 to 4.59 feet by 2100. That is nearly triple what the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found just two years ago.
The report focuses a great deal of attention on southern New Jersey’s coastlines, collating data from various scientists’ work.
Many of the problems it highlights will only grow worse if sea-level rise continues to accelerate due to continued climate change, as many scientists believe it will. Sea levels around Atlantic City, for example, are currently rising about 4 millimeters per year, more than in other areas along the Atlantic Coast.
You can read the entire report that caused this Press article. The tone of the article indicates that New Jersey’s coastal development will be under water in the near future. Mr. Walsh says that government preventative measures are shifting away from from building bulkheads. Government is now purchasing private property near the coast and allowing that land to be claimed by the sea.
The article then concludes:
But the approach along Cape May and Atlantic counties’ populous oceanfront communities is very different.
“It’s a much different scenario in places like Atlantic City, where we have billions of dollars of investment in tourism and (businesses),” Mauriello said.
I am very thankful that climate patterns are cyclical and global warming is a scam. Otherwise, Atlantic City would be in trouble. While these scare tactics are deplorable, it is evidence that one area of the economy is looking good: global warming alarmism. This is evidenced by Mr. Walsh’s report that “New Jersey recently created an Office on Climate Change.” Oh, great.
