Lower Mainland cities, developers brace for rising water levels
A climate change-driven, 100-year flood event in the Lower
Mainland could cost upwards of $32 billion

Climate change is a double challenge for communities in southwestern
B.C. that cluster at the mouth of the Fraser River and across the
broad delta of rich soils its waters have deposited over millennia.

On one hand, the river carries billions of litres of water south from
the mountain ranges of the interior to the coast, aiding everyone
from farmers to fishers. However, the benchmark floods of 1948 and
1894 remain influential in the imagination of those charged with
protecting the region from devastating water damage.

Sea levels have steadily increased since readings were first taken in
the 1870s. Provincial estimates indicate that B.C.’s south coast could
see water levels rise a further 1.2 metres (more than seven feet) by
2100, potentially creating dramatic storm surges in coastal areas.

Provincial guidelines have many municipalities considering a
construction level of at least 4.5 metres to protect buildings against
flooding.

Coastal farms, meanwhile, face a rising water table and the risk of
more saline soils as sea levels rise and sediment continues to
accumulate at the mouth of the Fraser River. Rising sea levels
combined with sedimentation and lower flows through the Fraser River
mean salt water extends farther up the Fraser River than ever before.

The situation is forcing coastal municipalities like Delta and Surrey
to rise to the occasion, drafting plans to protect homes and
businesses from the waters.

Sea level has been rising fairly steadily for about 20,000 - 22,000 years now. Not study much huh ? ?

Ha, ha, ha..... that's going to be a neat trick... That's 15 mm rise in sea level per year... IF it starts NOW !

If it starts ten or twenty years from now... the rise per year will have to be even more.... like 20 mm per year perhaps...

Anybody else smell BULLSHIT leftist Alarmist lies ? ? ? I sure as hell do.. LOL ha, ha, ha, ha, ha

So many homes and city buildings in that region are built on a FLOOD PLAIN ! ! ! HELLO.... ANYONE HOME ? ?

Guess why it's called a FLOOD PLAIN ! !

Seems this was true even DURING the Younger Dryas
cooling, when north America was thrown back into
a glacial period for a thousand years or more...

Funny, but even when part of the world was icing
over sea level was rising...

WTF ? ? ? 1.2 metres is MORE THAN SEVEN FEET ? ? ? ? ? Really ? ? ?

Hey Gordo comrade... I should have caught that before my last reply...

How many feet did you say 1.2 metres is ? ? ... More than seven feet ? ? ?

LOL ... ha, ha, ha, ha, ha what a laugh.... try 3.9 feet buddy... ha, ha, ha, ha, ha

1.2 metres is more than seven feet..... = FAKE NEWS ! ! LYING AND DECEIVING... ! ! !

(1.2 metres is equal to 3.9 feet... and would STILL require a sea level rise of AT LEAST 15mm per year..IF IT STARTS THIS YEAR TO REACH 3.9 FEET HIGHER BY 2100.

But... let's be generous and stretch it a bit and say MORE THAN 7 FEET HIGHER.. .... LOL ha, ha, ha


And Gordo has no problem posting it to this group ! ! Do we see how they lie and deceive ? ? ?

What is happening here is not so much sea level rise as a tectonic downward deflection of the land by the subducting pacific plate and is far more serious .
Due to recent occupation by humans of this area there is no historical record of what will happen next -the geologic record is however unambiguous , and it shows that the coast has been hit by the most enormous waves as the cascade fault zone ruptured and the pacific margin rebounded .Many of the refuges that have been constructed are pathetically inadequate and as you could need to RLF 20 Km inland to escape ! DESMODUS (Some of us were offered employment in this zone but declined due to the high level of risk which is in fact so high that governements will eventually have to accept perment evacuating the western tectonic zones of both north and south america in perpetuity )
