We have seen the future, and it sucks.

NBC Scare Tactics: Climate Change May Put Statue of Liberty Underwater

28th November 2012

Read it.

 In yet another example of climate change fearmongering following Hurricane Sandy, on Monday’s NBC Nightly News, anchor Brian Williams hyped a fantasy illustration from the New York Times: “…an artist’s depiction of the Statue of Liberty submerged in New York Harbor, a kind of what-if warning about climate change and our new coastlines up and down the east coast.”

Actually, that might not work out the way they want it to. A sea-level rise sufficient to put the statue under water would erase most of the bluest areas of the country; almost all of the Left Coast and the Other Left Coast, and the Blue pimples that stretch along the Gulf coast of the south, including Texas.

I’m good with that.
