Man Who Took Fossil Fueled Trip To Manhattan Warns It Will Soon Be Underwater From ‘Climate Change’

What does it take to get Mr. Obama anywhere? Let’s start with a fossil fueled (FF) helicopter flight to Andrews AFB. Then the FF flight itself, which typically includes a FF backup plane and several FF fighter jets. Then a big FF convoy of vehicles which get low MPG. Then reverse for the trip back to D.C.

(Weekly Standard) President Obama warned of a submerged Manhattan without efforts to combat climate change during a fundraiser in New York City Wednesday night.

“[T]he majority of people believe in things like science — and scientists,” an official transcript of his remarks reads. “And so when scientists tell us that the planet is getting warmer and we need to do something about it, the majority of people think that’s a good idea, let’s do something about that, because we don’t want Manhattan to be underwater.”

Good news! It’ll take a long, long time for Manhattan to be underwater. By the time it becomes a danger, the earth will have flipped to a typical Holocene cool period

You can see it bigger, and other NY sea level data, here. 0.93 feet in 100 years is just barely above average for the last 7-8,000 years, and still well under the expected sea rise during a Holocene warm period. Fortunately, we have Mr. Obama, putting out well above the average carbon pollution to tell Other People that they need to be forced to Do Something by government. While at a fancy schmansy fundraiser.
