    Melting ice is causing the ocean to sink, worrying new study reports

    "For scientists, this study also suggests that there’s a significant error source when it comes to sea level rise — it’s an 8% amplification effect which we haven’t considered until now."

    "mankind’s effect on the planet is profound and long-lasting, affecting every ecosystem on the planet. Ocean floor deformation turned out to be an impactful and unexpected process, who knows what else we’re missing?"

    Just like all that excessive skyscraper development is causing parts of New York City's Manhattan Island to sink!

    Silly Liberals, we had plenty of earthquakes on the ocean floor, those new crevices cause the oceans to sink. Besides that Liberals, now you don't have to panic about rising ocean levels. The ocean wall near my house still shows the same levels as 15 years ago.

    Liberals, which people are you planning to euthanize now besides babies, old people and drug users so there's less mankind?

    So I guess its too late for your higher taxes to solve the problem.
