LOL, yes, waste the money on this because heaven knows you’ve nothing better to do with it.
Parts of Interbay, Georgetown, South Park, West Seattle, Harbor Island and Golden Gardens will be under water as the local shoreline creeps higher due to global climate change, Seattle Public Utilities predicts. …..
Calculations by the Washington Climate Impacts Group and the Washington Department of Ecology published in 2008 predict a sea-level rise in Seattle of 6 inches by 2050.
Less-likely scenarios are a sea-level rise of 3 inches on the low end and 22 inches on the high end. And that’s the new normal. Winter rain and wind storms and seasonal high tides — or combinations of any of those or other events — mean even higher water.
Yeh, right…. something. Seattle, as far as I can tell, has a pretty clean tidal gauge record. You can find it at PSMSL Here’s the last 30 years plotted.
It’s risen less than 20mm in the last 30 years. At this rate, from today, it wouldn’t even rise an inch by 2050. The rate of rise would have to nearly quadruple to get over the 3 inch mark, their “less-likely low end scenario“.
Port Townsend, the nearest gauge in the data set has a continuity problem, but their latest 21 years shows this….
LOL, yes, Seattle, you need more studies! The climate sea level rise will be on you before you know it!
