The L. A. Times published an article claiming that “Trump’s climate science denial clashes with the reality of rising seas in Florida”
The article fails to address easily available and comprehensive NOAA tide gauge data updated through the year 2015 (http://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/sltrends/sltrends_us.htm) showing that the Florida coastline is experiencing no acceleration in coastal sea level rise and that the rate of coastal sea level rise there remains constant and consistent over more than 100 years of long term period tide gauge data measurements.
This long term steady rate of coastal sea level rise is documented at numerous locations around the state including Mayport, Fernandina Beach, Key West, St. Petersburg, Cedar Key, and Pensacola.
Climate alarmists have been falsely claiming for 3 decades now that coastal sea level rise is accelerating but NOAA tide gauge data demonstrates that this is not happening in Florida or anywhere else around the world.
In addition to the Times article failing to address NOAA coastal sea level rise measurement science the article also fails to address the well established climate science showing that sea level has been rising for thousands of years since the end of the last ice age and that this increasing sea level is driven by natural climate change not man made global warming (https://curryja.files.wordpress.com/2016/05/spe-curry-final.pdf).
The Times article also fails to mention that projections of future coastal sea level rise in Florida based on climate models have huge limitations and qualifications rendering such projections as nothing but pure speculation and conjecture (https://wattsupwiththat.com/2016/05/28/2015-updated-noaa-tide-gauge-data-shows-no-coastal-sea-level-rise-acceleration/).
The Times article mentions the recent increase in global temperatures but conceals the fact that the huge 2015–2016 El Nino is responsible for those increased temperatures not man made global warming (https://curryja.files.wordpress.com/2016/05/spe-curry-final.pdf).
The L A Times article which accuses Trump of climate science denial regarding Florida sea level rise in fact provides a clear demonstration of the Times climate science denial and the outright use of the deception and distortion of climate alarmist propaganda by that paper.
