From Plymouth to Portsmouth, sea levels surged by inches, after a submarine landslide.
No, climate change didn\’t cause a landslide. But the effects of the landslide were the same as one of the effects we\’re told that climate change will bring.
A rise in sea levels. \”A few inches\” (let us say, four or five) is equal to the predicted rise in sea level over the next four decades or so (ish, ish, 3 mm per year, 12 cm over 40 years, 5 inches near enough).
Don\’t forget, for SE England, some 50% (ish, ish, W. Stoat will no doubt be along to correct my numbers) of this is rebound from the ice age, not gorbal wormening at all.
Yes, climate change is a problem but it\’s a chronic, long term one, not an immediate disaster that requires throwing away the entirety of our industrial culture nor the burning of our wealth to beat.
From Plymouth to Portsmouth, sea levels surged by inches, after a submarine landslide. \”It was quite violent in a way,\” one mariner reported unconvincingly. \”My dinghy was moving around.\” Other effects included \”lots of fish jumping\”, and women\’s hair standing on end at St Michael\’s Mount, where the air was charged with static.
