"... global warming likely means a “multi-metre” rise in ocean height by the end of this century."
"... global sea level changes at present are lagging behind a global warming trend and no one can predict when the oceans will catch up, although it’s a certainty that they will." ["a certainty" only if the warming predicted by AGW hysterics is a "certainty" - which it most certainly isn't.]
"SFU’s Clague said the sea level may be changing more rapidly than it has in several thousand years ..." [So much for certainty.]It must be time for these SFU and UBC "researchers" to renew their government grants; and given that the BC government has bought into AGW hysteria lock-stock-and-barrel grant renewals are a near certainty.
When moving to the lower mainland a couple of years ago I considered Ladner but decided against it - not because of global warming but global warming hysteria and the potential for gigantic tax increases - and even worse plummeting Ladner housing values caused by this alarmism.
Update: CTV Vancouver News covered this "story" last night as if it were a certainty. The dimwitted anchor thought it was gospel because "computer models" showed the flooding that would occur (What? No computer model showing what Vancouver would look like after the asteroid hits?) If I were a Ladner home owner I'd be damn pissed at these SFU, UBC, Vancouver Sun and CTV warm-mongers for depressing my property values.
