Study on floods and carbon dioxide defy UN projections

Those convinced of man-made global warming believe that as carbon dioxide levels rise, there should be a corresponding increase in flood levels. But according to a new study by the U.S. Geological Survey, floods in the U.S. have not shown the measurable increase that researchers expected to see. The study, reported on in Energy and Environment Daily, divided the U.S. into four quadrants, and researchers matched the flow of 200 stream gauges with data about CO2 for 127 years. The results were “very much at odds” with projected assessments by the U.N.’s main scientific body, and provide yet another cold reality check on the overheated theory of man-made climate change.

    Area pictured may be in a Long Island Sound linked waterbody.

    We recently completed a study that proves anti-dredging and required dumping of dredge spoils in Long Island Sound has caused High Tide Flooding. Our timeframe of comparisons 1888 to 2012.

    Same tidal input for multi millennia, sediment build up displaces water…….

    jc999 — thanks. You’re correct, of course, just some time spent searching. My point was that as a courtesy to readers there is no reason why not to put in a link. I get frustrated when there’s no link (this is the web, after all), or when the link goes to the publication’s home page versus article page, requiring readers to do searching.
