The following is from a TV station in Boston and it seems like a professor is sticking it back to the global warming folks saying what we've told you here for a long time.

"A new proposal on climate change focuses on public health, energy, transportation and basic infrastructure. Under the plan unveiled Tuesday, $40 million will go to help cities and towns in Massachusetts shore up the power supply and keep the lights on. 10-million will be earmarked for the coast, to protect it from rising sea levels.But will it work? While Governor Deval Patrick and others painted a dire picture of what global warming might do to us, others are more skeptical. MIT Professor Richard Lindzen is a leading international expert on climate change.

"The changes that have occurred due to global warning are too small to account for," Lindzen told WBZ-TV. "It has nothing to do with global warming, it has to do with where we live."

Lindzen endorses sensible preparedness and environmental protection, but sees what he terms "catastrophism" in the climate change horror stories.

"Global warming, climate change, all these things are just a dream come true for politicians. The opportunities for taxation, for policies, for control, for crony capitalism are just immense, you can see their eyes bulge," Lindzen says.

"Even many of the people who are supportive of sounding the global warning alarm, back off from catastrophism," Lindzen said. "It's the politicians and the green movement that like to portray catastrophe."

Now, there's a class I'd sign up for.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

idiot... just google 'geologist' and 'geology' and you will be enlightened as to how much of the earths crust and mantle go up and down. Yes land sinks... shocking isn't it. And land rises And even on the ocean floor it does that. And that changes the volume of the oceans.

And since 2/3s of the world is covered with water you will find that geologist and oceanographers know little of how it works.

I learned from geology astronomy and physics classes in collage we know so little.

Yea idiot... it's called EROSION! Notice Niagara Falls as moved over the years. Seems water erodes stone. Imagine that!

Global warming is way overrated, politicians and green product sales are the only winners. Save your money, it is a natural occurrence for our planet to get colder and then warmer and has been for forever. Ice ages are normal and so are melt downs, its just part of our planets cycle. 100 yr storms do not just happen every 100 years, the name just means that they do not happen very often, not that they just happen exactly every 100 years. Its just all about money & how to get yours.

Strange these people who call themselves Americans, those who support any cause which will produce a bureaucracy and provide an excuse to tax their neighbor.

That would explain why they go gaga over anything that promises disaster, like global warming/cooling, bird/swine flues. It's like they go into panic mode if you challenge their view. They're like pessimists when you try to reassure them that doom is not looming. They hope for disasters so they're justified.

I hope everyone realizes the coastal areas SINK BY THEMSELVES. Yes the land moves up and down due to the crust of the earth moving.

I bet these 'global warming scientist' don't even know about Continental drift! Or how mountains rise up out of the earth. We even have new islands now and then as a volcano erupts in the ocean.

Global Warming was a scam. They were outed for all their lying and even now they try to scare everyone into buying their propaganda.

Hope for change in 2014.

Great article in the New York Times on January 14 titled "The Flood Next Time". The consequences of climate change are here. You may not like it or want to believe it, but it's here. It may not affect Tyler anytime soon, but it will impact millions of people around the world, and therefore, impact you indirectly. KETK is doing a disservice to its audience by promoting Neal's political views instead of real news. Science is science and Neal is not a scientist.

Eastman, should the artic polar ice-cap melt then sea levels would fall not rise. Water expands when frozen and occupies a greater volume therefore, like the ice in your water glass, when melted, the water level is lower. The NYT is a Gobbells modeled propaganda sheet, nothing more.
