Mr. Obama is Making Nonsense Claims About Sea Level Rise

For the Statue of Liberty to be covered sea level would have to rise more than 300 feet. Where is the evidence for this claim?

The highest elevation on Long Island is 400 ft above sea level (click here). So most of Long Island would also be covered. I’ve already mentioned The Battery. So let’s take a look at Kings Point, NY:

The mean sea level trend is 2.50 millimeters/year with a 95% confidence
interval of +/- 0.21 mm/yr based on monthly mean sea level data from
1931 to 2015 which is equivalent to a change of 0.82 feet in 100 years.

The claim Mr. Obama is making would essentially require global flooding.
