Txs Nobrot. Posted in Climate Change?===>climate is getting warmer kind of thing.

Our favorite denier on this forum likes to cherry pick a trend line to "prove" the trend is going in the opposite direction. A nice "kinetic" graph like this totally swamps (sic) such an approach.

Graphs with nice colors can dramatically make a point. Throw in some movement, and its overwhelming. To be fair: doesn't address the "why" of it at all..........(but we all know.)

Well, since I live inland, I'll withhold by support for fighting Climate Change until my house has become a beachfront property.

EM--Ocean rise is only one and not the most lethal direct effect of AGW. You may never get to enjoy the beach.
