Why Isn’t Manhattan Underwater Yet?

Nearly five years ago — it was September 2016 — New York magazine featured the above article, illustrated by a “speculative rendering showing what a hundred-year storm could briefly do to the Meatpacking District decades from now, when sea levels have risen several feet.”

“Global warming” alarmists have learned to place their dire predictions decades into the future, so that the failure of events to match their predictions cannot be easily demonstrated. Indeed, they have quietly changed the name of the catastrophic scenario from “global warming” to “climate change,” so that any unusual weather event — including blizzards and record-setting cold waves — can be cited as “proof.”

The problem they experience, however, is that they’ve been warning us that the sky is falling for decades now, so that even their long-term predictions can now be demonstrated to be false.

John Nolte quotes a New York Times article warning that a “continuing rise in average global sea level” means that “most of the beaches on the East Coast of the United States would be gone in 25 years.”

That was published in 1995 — 26 years ago. Oops.

Turn on the TV. It’s spring break. Kids seem to be having lots of fun at those East Coast beaches we were told would be gone by now.
