    There is NO WAY UNDER THE SUN to VERIFY that is a picture of a street in the Keys, or that it has been flooded for more than even five minutes.

    Thankfully most of the Coastal areas are largely Liberal cesspools. The ocean will cleanse these areas by claiming them for itself, and washing away the trash as it does.

    Yeah I also saw in the OP that someone called a "sustainability director" is responsible for this garbage statement. WTF is a "sustainability director" and why the heck don't the mods take this bullshit out of the Breaking News forum?

    Even if man made global warming is true, the United States is not the problem. It's China, India and other emerging regions who are increasing their CO2 output while we have been reducing ours. There seems to be this feeling among the AOC type democrats that we need to completely alter the United states as we know it, to save the world.
    Its more than ridiculous and not based in fact.
    There was once an Aluetian land bridge from Russia to Alaska, where people could walk across but its all under water now. Sea levels have been rising since the last big Ice Age and they will continue to rise until the next Ice age.Theres nothing man can really do to stop that from happening but civilization will survive just fine.

    I now understand from where that paradigm comes.

    I lived close to Ocean Beach in SF for many years as I grew up in middle Richmond district in San Francisco. It's erosion there, too, caused by big storms. There is a huge 14' wastewater infrastructure that runs alongside the beach. If they do not shore it up with tons of additional sand to support it, then it could snap and cause a huge stinky mess. Thus, they bring lots of sand in many dump trucks from elsewhere and dump it on the beach. The problem isn't rising seas, but the libs all think that's the cause when it's erosion caused by storms and to shore up the wastewater infrastructure.. Why do you jump to conclusions?

    ETA: There is no AGW and rising seas. It's all a scare story told by secular scientists. If the seas were truly rising, then the GRACE satellites would tell us. You would be getting information from them and getting warnings to evacuate. The problems we have is caused by changes to weather which we can't control.

    Sadly, sheep believe idiots in private planes telling them to stop driving their mopeds.

    I've seen pictures of Ocean Beach well before my birth. I doubt your comment is the only reason why the Beach has shrunk. There is substance to your comment, since I recall a ship being anchored a few hundred yards off of Sloat Blvd., which the Chronicle wrote was mining sand. I don't know if it was to be replaced back on the beach, or used for the cement industry.

    For the record, the sea wall was built years ago and the waves white water has reached the rocks at the end of Kelly's Cove and the sea wall during King Tides. Clearly those tids contribute to the erosion but I can't imagine what they take away goes too far out to sea, and so it is not replaced by in the process.
