    The rising sea level has caused that. Holy shit. You guys better study up on what we have been fighting. It is getting serious.

    I'll believe you all are serious when I see you all practicing what you preach. Cut your carbon footprint to the minimum. Prove you care about the planet.

    Infusion! Here is Florida and it is very real and doesn't count the underground infusion pumping sea water into the fresh water everglades:

    You guys? This is not political. Get serious as this is a real issue.

    OMG, the sky is falling. How much do you believe that it is real? What are YOU doing to reduce your carbon footprint?

    That island has been there for thousands of years, but it is only recently it has been going under water, does that give you a clue?

    The island is not going under water. The shoreline is eroding. Erosion happens from water crashing against it over decades or centuries. Tangier Island is not sinking into the sea.

    Infusion is not just rising sea water crashing on beaches. It is not just shorelines. It includes infusion. Those ARE rising sea level issues. The sea level rise is accelerated.

    It is real. Wake up. Find out what you are talking about before just tossing out silly talking points that show you don't know what the fight is. This is not a minor thing. Denial doesn't help.

    It's real but you can't prove that it is manmade or that man can stop it. When I was a kid, we were headed for another ice age. Turned out they were wrong on that one, then it was global warming. Now it is just climate change. A lot of people are buying it. Let's say that you are right. How much do you believe in it? Are you willing to quit using electricity? Plastic products? Internal combustion motors? I'm betting the answer is, No.
