Nils-Axel. The Illusive Flooding of New York City. Journal of Environmental Sciences Volume 1, Issue 2
In media we often hear frightening stories of a sea in the progress of rapidly rising and flooding low-lying coasts and islands, and coastal cities like New York. This paper is devoted to a scientific evaluation of evidence-based facts versus fake news that violates facts and physical laws. It is a serious mistake to claim that global sea level is in a phase of rapid rise. Observationally based facts document a present changes in absolute (eustatic) sea level ranging between ±0.0 and +1.0 mm/yr. This poses no threats what so ever. In New York City, sea level is rising at a rate of +2.84 mm/yr, which would imply an additional rise in sea level by 23.3 cm by 2100, a modest rise that can be handled without problems. There also occur statements that sea level may raise by 1 m or more by 2100. All such claims represent fake news that does not concur with observational fact and violates physical frames of realism.
“Even for the New York Times, this is a spectacular amount of lies packed into one article. The lead story on the front page of the New York Times on January 26, 1989 was “U.S. Data Since 1895 Fail To Show Warming Trend” “ click here
People are now seeing through the deception of this NY Times article (here) and the distorted claims about “climate change” and “global warming”. Click here
“Whatever the reason for the adjustments, the climate record for New York State has been changed out of all recognition, and bears no resemblance to the actual official data.” click here
“On the heels of the Energy & Environment Legal Institute (E&E Legal) releasing the copy of the a secrecy pact between Democratic Attorneys General led by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, obtained after a months-long fight with these AGs to keep it from the public, E&E Legal has posted a March 7th 2016 letter sent by Schneiderman and Vermont AG William Sorrell to other ideologically aligned AGs inviting them to join in using their law enforcement offices in an “informal coalition…to stem climate change and expand the availability and usage of renewable energy”.” click here for WUWT post

Mary Figgatt, Neil Muscatiello, Lloyd Wilson, and David Dziewulski. Harmful Algal Bloom–Associated Illness Surveillance: Lessons From Reported Hospital Visits in New York, 2008–2014. American Journal of Public Health. 2016;106:440–442. doi: 10.2105/AJPH.2015.302988
We identified hospital visits with reported exposure to harmful algal blooms, an emerging public health concern because of toxicity and increased incidence. We used the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Disease (ICD) medical code specifying environmental exposure to harmful algal blooms to extract hospital visit records in New York State from 2008 to 2014. Using the ICD code, we identified 228 hospital visits with reported exposure to harmful algal blooms. They occurred all year long and had multiple principal diagnoses. Of all hospital visits, 94.7% were managed in the emergency department and 5.3% were hospitalizations. As harmful algal bloom surveillance increases, the ICD code will be a beneficial tool to public health only if used properly.
Expensive modeling studies are not necessary in order to plan responsibly for the future. In many cases studies such as this are a waste of time and money. New York’s skyline will always be changing. The report writers have simply ignored science and are relying on assumptions and speculations.
The mean sea level trend is 2.83 millimeters/year with a 95% confidence interval of +/- 0.09 mm/yr based on monthly mean sea level data from 1856 to 2013 which is equivalent to a change of 0.93 feet in 100 years.
“New York City Panel on Climate Change released a new report detailing exactly how climate scientists expect New York City to change over over the next 100 years, focusing on projected increases in temperature and sea level. Sea level rise will certainly transform the shape of the city’s coastline. But Manhattan’s edges are basically a man-made pile of garbage already—they can go ahead and disintegrate. What climate will really change is the true shape of New York: Its iconic skyline, and the buildings in it.” click here
