uh..."notice"? That sure sounds like a scientific assessment of a complex issue

https://www.climate.gov/news-feature...obal-sea-level

First paragraph:
"Global mean sea level has risen about 8–9 inches (21–24 centimeters) since 1880, with about a third of that coming in just the last two and a half decades. The rising water level is mostly due to a combination of meltwater from glaciers and ice sheets and thermal expansion of seawater as it warms. In 2018, global mean sea level was 3.2 inches (8.1 centimeters) above the 1993 average—the highest annual average in the satellite record (1993-present)"

Obviously the impact here isn't going to be the same elsewhere. I know stateside increased flooding in Miami and surrounding areas is basically a regular thing now from normal king tides, something that didn't really happen outside of severe weather events before.

I'm not saying we are going to be in Waterworld in a decade, but saying "I didn't notice any change so no need to worry" is equivalent to the one politician a few years back who brought a snowball in from outside to disapprove climate change.

Then go back to predictions from few years ago, how much should sea level rise until 2030, 2050 or 2100.

I did not notice any sea level rise.

I also notice that journals and newspapers went quiet about sea level rise at the time when it should be catastrophic.
But Jurek, look at Venice...its almost completely under..., er, wait. That's right, Venice is bone dry right now.

Carry on.....
