New York city is still not underwater

NY Times:

Rising Seas Are Putting Historic Sites at Risk

Eroding shorelines have damaged Port Arthur, the famous prison in Tasmania that housed the British Empire’s toughest convicts in the 19th century. It is but one example of a global problem.
The ocean has ebbed and flowed throughout history and it is not an indicator of climate change.  Recall that Al Gore claimed the ocean would rise and flood lower Manhattan, and then tried to claim that Hurricane Sandy proved his prediction correct, even though he said it would happen because of a sea level rise from melting ice, which has clearly not happened.  He also predicted that the Arctic would be ice free.

Other failed predictions of doom:
New York City underwater? Gas over $9 a gallon? A carton of milk costs almost $13? Welcome to June 12, 2015. Or at least that was the wildly-inaccurate version of 2015 predicted by ABC News exactly seven years ago. Appearing on Good Morning America in 2008, Bob Woodruff hyped Earth 2100, a special that pushed apocalyptic predictions of the then-futuristic 2015.

When I was taking a geology course at the University of Texas back in the mid 60's we took a field trip to study fossils in the Austin limestone.  Most of the ones we saw were of sea creatures that were there thousands of years ago when the area was underwater, but Austin is now a couple of hundred miles from the gulf of Mexico.

Stories of Atlantis also testify to the dynamic nature of the earth's environment and virtually all of these changes happened before anyone thought of CO2 as an engine of "climate change."  These changes are a poor excuse for turning the world's economy over to control freaks in a vain attempt to modulate the weather.
