John Englander has been quoted as saying:
"50 feet of sea level rise is already a certainty"
"...6 feet of sea level rise in as little as 30 - 40 years."
Six feet in the next 35 years requires over 50 mm/yr of sea level rise. That's a ridiculous claim.
Local tide gauges
show rates of 3 mm/yr or less
says 3.2 mm/yr and shows no signs of any acceleration.
I hope some one at next Monday's meeting asks Mr. Englander about these quotes. I hope they ask him when this acceleration from 3 mm/yr to over 50 mm/yr is going to occur?
