The U.S. Geological Survey, which is part of the Department of the Interior, announced that it had released a new survey about sea level rise linked to global climate change. The report shows the sea level rising between Boston and Cape Hatteras, but, over a 40 or 60 year period, shows either no change or the ocean lowering on the Pacific Coast, the Gulf Coast, and the Atlantic Coast North of Boston and South of Cape Hatteras.
The Boston Globe has apocalyptic coverage.
President Obama claimed his own presidential nomination was "the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal." Maybe he can claim credit for the progress everywhere but between North Carolina and Boston, though at least according to this survey the rise of the ocean had already been slowing in those other places for the past 40 to 60 years.
