Does that headline invoke fear in you?
My oldest son and I recently visited beaches from Florida to New York and didn’t see any signs of sea level rise.
Daytona Beach, Ocean City and Jones Beach haven’t relocated their boardwalks.

Although its staff probably has good intentions, does anyone else see KSL as a propaganda arm?
I’ve lived most of my life where Lake Bonneville once stood. It covered parts of three states. To quote Wikipedia, “Formed about 32,000 years ago, Lake Bonneville existed until about 14,500 years ago…At more than 1,000 ft (300 m) deep and more than 19,691 square miles (51,000 km) in area, the lake was nearly as large as Lake Michigan and significantly deeper.”
Where did all that water go and what affect did it have upon lakes and shorelines worldwide?
My fellow Americans, we can do better.
Read the NASA article if you wish but for many the headline did its job: NASA: 10,000-year-old Antarctic ice shelf will disappear by 2020
