Re: Texas Toast
Dredge, I assume your harbor side park bench is on the island nation of Travalu. From this article:
"Already, two of Tuvalu’s nine islands are on the verge of going under, the government says, swallowed by sea-rise and coastal erosion. Most of the islands sit barely three metres above sea level, and at its narrowest point, Fongafale stretches just 20m across."
Or are you on the Alaska coast:
"Rising sea levels have eroded an Inupiat Eskimo village for decades. Now, residents of Shishmaref, Alaska, have officially voted to relocate. The island community, located near the Bering Strait, opted to move rather than remain in place with added safety measures to protect against the rising waters."
Or are you just a Republican, I.e., someone who just doesn't give a damn about anyone else's problems.
Your name is so appropriate for this topic.

If the oceans are indeed rising, they will be rising at every point of every coastline on the planet, yet all we've heard about for the last twenty years are the problems at the grand total of TWO locations - Tuvalu and Shishmaref. Funny, that.
Please explain that to the owners of these house:
House collapses into ocean along North Carolina’s Outer Banks
And closer to home for you:
Luxury homes in Australia are falling into the ocean - CNN Video
And these people in the UK ("Britain's collapsing coastline"):
Britain's collapsing coastline | Behind The Story
And along Old Cape Cod:
Cape Cod homes are falling into the sea. It’s never been more popular - or expensive
The global climate crisis isn't just causing sea level rise, which is currently very gradual at less than a centimeter a year, but is causing significantly harsher storms and hurricanes, much higher storm surges, and much faster coastal erosion. The owners of those homes will be relieved to hear that only two remote areas are being affected. How are we going to re-educate all those foolish Aussies who voted Morrison out and Albanese in primarily over climate issues? Just because he promoted "A politics that denied, and sometimes even mocked, the seriousness of the climate crisis - as Treasurer, Morrison laughingly brandished a lump of coal in parliament. "

Re: Texas Toast
Over half the sea level rise during the past 25 years is due to thermal expansion. This component of SLR is projected to increase to over 70% in the future. The oceans are heating up rapidly.

Re: Texas Toast
Dredge, I know you are just a troll trying to have some fun with us, but this 2017 NYT article might interest you. It reads in part:
NYT writes:
"From a Dutch mind-set, climate change is not a hypothetical or a drag on the economy, but an opportunity. While the Trump administration withdraws from the Paris accord, the Dutch are pioneering a singular way forward.
It is, in essence, to let water in, where possible, not hope to subdue Mother Nature: to live with the water, rather than struggle to defeat it. The Dutch devise lakes, garages, parks and plazas that are a boon to daily life but also double as enormous reservoirs for when the seas and rivers spill over. You may wish to pretend that rising seas are a hoax perpetrated by scientists and a gullible news media. Or you can build barriers galore. But in the end, neither will provide adequate defense, the Dutch say.
And what holds true for managing climate change applies to the social fabric, too. Environmental and social resilience should go hand in hand, officials here believe, improving neighborhoods, spreading equity and taming water during catastrophes. Climate adaptation, if addressed head-on and properly, ought to yield a stronger, richer state.
This is the message the Dutch have been taking out into the world. Dutch consultants advising the Bangladeshi authorities about emergency shelters and evacuation routes recently helped reduce the numbers of deaths suffered in recent floods to “hundreds instead of thousands,” according to Mr. Ovink."
I guess "screaming blue bloody murder" is an Australian thing. Others use their ingenuity to deal with reality.

Re: Texas Toast
They recently voted out their previous government
Isn't that the purest form of "screaming blue bloody murder"? Is the US about to "scream red bloody murder"?
