Gallup poll: Only 17% of respondents described climate change as ‘extremely important’ – ‘Lowest number for all the issues’

People under age 35 who voted in 2012 cite climate change as a top concern, according to a poll conducted by Benson Strategy Group in conjunction with the League of Conservation Voters last year. Of those polled, 55 percent said climate change is an issue that must be addressed immediately and an additional 11 percent said it’s a problem to address in the years ahead.

Rebuttal to Florida Sea Level Rise Fears: ‘Sea level is barely rising in S. Florida. What they are observing is subsidence, which has nothing to do with the climate’

Even the IPCC concedes that there was no significant anthropogenic influence on climate prior to 1950, thus man is not be responsible for sea level rise beginning 150-200 years ago, at the end of the Little Ice Age.
The sea level rise over the past ~200 years shows no evidence of acceleration, which is necessary to assume a man-made influence. Sea level rise instead decelerated over the 20th centurydecelerated 31% since 2002 and decelerated 44% since 2004 to less than 7 inches per century. There is no evidence of an acceleration of sea level rise, and therefore no evidence of any man-made effect on sea levels. Sea level rise is primarily a local phenomenon related to land subsidence, not CO2 levels. Therefore, areas with groundwater depletion and land subsidence have much higher rates of relative sea level rise, but this has absolutely nothing to do with man-made CO2.
