    Hopefully, all the global warming nut cases like the one who moved to New Zeland will soon leave this country. We will be much better off. Good luck in New Zeland.

    What about the ones who live on the islands of Kiribati whose homes will soon be under water?

    Their "fears" can rule their lives if they wish and they should move if they're afraid.

    They just shouldn't expect sane people to buy into the fearmongering of the global warming nutballs with them.

    As for the U.S. , the sooner all those fruitcakes move out of the country, the better off we'll be.

    Where does it say that thier homes will soon be under water? They are making plans based on "fears" that sea levels will rise. What a bunch of bunk and to think that supposedly intelligent people are moving based on theory rather than solid scientific evidence.

    And, where is the definitive proof that this is caused by "global warming?"

    Well your fellow in the link isn't quite up to date. Shucks, even the Chesapeake Bay, where I live, has seen rising levels.

    [QUOTEWASHINGTON (Reuters) - Sea levels on the United States' mid-Atlantic coast are rising faster than the global average because of global warming, threatening the future of coastal communities, the Environmental Protection Agency said on Friday.

    Coastal waters from New York to North Carolina have crept up by an average of 2.4 to 4.4 millimeters (0.09 to 0.17 inches) a year, compared with an average global increase of 1.7 millimeters (0.07 inches) a year, the EPA said in a report.

    Yes, I wish they would move out of this country, along with congress. We would be much better off. But, I guess every country has their share of kooks.

    Coastlines are changing... imagine that.

    BTW - .07 inches a year is 7 inches every century and as your source points out the coastal lands are sinking.

    And did you notice that a source also said with a sinking coastline and a rising sea level it only gets worse faster. You are like many Christians I know when the quote scripture ... quote and/or take out of conterxt to prove a point that is untrue.

    You might want to find out who he considers the kooks before making such a statement. :)


    Have a blessed day.

    Targus it's hopeless dealing with members of the church of global warming. The indoctrination is complete and irreversible. No rational thought or argument works to penetrate the alarmist cloud that they live in.

    Crabtownboy, I notice that you travel between continents quite a bit.

    Do you go by rowboat or jet?

    Why do you continue in contributing to global warming?

    Instead of talking about global warming why aren't you adjusting your lifestyle accordingly?

    Seems that is what God has wanted my wife and I to do the last four years. That may have ended, only time will tell.

    I do live a "low carbon life" at home and when I am abroad.

    How 'bout you?

    Have a blessed day.

    Well, perhaps you should consider then that it is God that is charge of the sea levels - not you or I.

    But not traveling between apparently.

    As a carbon based life form I must contain the correct amount of carbon because I am still alive.

    Glad you are still alive.

    Oh, I believe God has help in the rising sea level.
