Do you have a good link to the article? The one in the Op doesn't work. It's hard to comment about it when I can't read it. 11 years isn't very long when talking about sea level though.
Yes, John, it is. We were told back then we would have a foot rise by 2030, you yourself have said it is now being measured in millimeters.
As for the link, that would be up to the Charlotte Observer archives. I was only reading and responding back then. As I recall it was a federally funded UNC study with a prescribed outcome.
Please go back in time 90-100 pages on this message board forum. It is very revealing. There was discussion, confrontation, conflict, but a lot of civility as well. A lot of interesting reads and history from a lot of well-informed legacy members who are either here occasionally, or have left or passed. Oh, the names and faces I could put with some of those posters on both sides of the debates.
