More Global Warming References That Are All Incorrect

USGS (United States Geological Survey)
Reduction of the West Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets similar to past reductions would cause sea level to rise 10 or more meters. A sea-level rise of 10 meters would flood about 25 percent of the U.S. population, with the major impact being mostly on the people and infrastructures in the Gulf and East Coast States
There is little awareness, however, that the rapidly rising relative sea level within the bay is also having dramatic and wide-ranging effects. Islands once populated in colonial time and during the past century have disappeared due to submergence and related shore erosion.

Now here's one with a huge financial stake in faking the results.
Christian Science Monitor
and another one that has a reputation for intellectual dishonesty and scare-mongering
National Geographic Society
A 20-inch sea level rise would double the global population at risk from storm surges, from roughly 45 million at present to over 90 million, and this figure does not account for any increases in coastal populations. A 40-inch rise would triple the number.
South Florida is highly vulnerable to sea level rise. A third of the Everglades has an elevation of less than 12 inches. Salt water intrusion would adversely affect delicate ecological communities and degrade the habitat for many species.
And just to add a bit of internatinal flavour to the roast.

And yes each and every one of these links has drawn an incorrect conclusion due to the fact that they are either mindless imbeciles or have a financial stake in scaring the daylights out of the hard working American middle-class.
