    He probably also thinks the Earth revolves around the sun with that logic.

    "The island I live on is disappearing. But I just don't see the sea level rising." Wow. Wooooooooow. Like, that's a special level of stupid.

    That's what happens when people trust the U.S school system and don't learn or do any sort of independent studying of their own.

    You might want to brush up on what keen observer means. Pretty damn sad that Trump can convince people CC is a hoax as their home literally crumbles around them.

    If the guy on Tangier Island's house is at 2 feet of elevation above sea level in 1970, for example, and then finds his house under water in 2040, then either his house sank by two feet or sea level rose by 2 feet. Erosion can play a role in his house sinking, but erosion doesn't effect sea level rise. I doubt erosion is causing the problem because he would likely see waves right near his house, if erosion was the cause.

    Dumbass even for global warming denial standards, most are at least not dumb enough to deny sea level rising.
