Visualizing Donald Trump’s Impact On Sea Level

Visualizing Donald Trump’s Impact On Sea Level, by Tony Heller.

Sea level at New York is rising at the same rate as when Abraham Lincoln was president.

Sea level at Northern California is falling at the same rate as when Franklin Roosevelt was president.

The Great Barrier Reef? It moved over a hundred kilometers west when the last ice age ended and sea level rose over a 100 meters. The average temperature of the reef varies several degrees from north to south (PNG to NSW). So how is it in peril from a global temperature rise of about one degree in the last one hundred and fifty years, and which is concentrated in the northern hemisphere? (“Global” warming was greatest at the north pole, decreased as you went south, and was non-existent at the south pole.)
