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.
