When all the climate change nonsense has played out, we will just scratch all those ridiculous regulations and resume natural prosperity – except in Boston if the environistas have their way. You see, they want to wall-off the water front because of rising sea levels. Welcome to Rotterdam.
And who is cogitating this monstrosity? Surprise, it’s academia, this time professors at U Mass and they are spending the year studying alternatives and costs and impact on fishing and shipping.
Why? A waterfront, currently a foot above high tide, is vulnerable to a sea level schedule to rise a foot and a half by 2050 and three feet by 2070 according to global warmists. Depending on final design decisions, this wall could be four miles long. Aside from its ugliness, boaters will need to go a mile or more out of their way to find a gate to safe harbor – if it’s open.
Calling All ‘Experts’
From ClimateDepot.com, “Renowned Princeton Physicist Freeman Dyson: ‘I’m 100% Democrat and I like Obama. But he took the wrong side on climate issue, and the Republicans took the right side’

Green Guru James Lovelock reverses belief in ‘global warming’: Now says ‘I’m not sure the whole thing isn’t crazy’ – Condemns green movement: ‘It’s a religion really, It’s totally unscientific’
On a recent TV News/Discussion show, a panelist said that 99 percent of the scientific community believes that man-made global warming is real. There has been a recent spate of similar assertions on
Hoax of the Century
The Cardiff Giant was the figure of a man, 10 feet 4-1/2 inches tall, carved out of gypsum and surreptitiously buried on the farm of a Syracuse, NY suburb called Cardiff. When it was found in 1869 by a farmer drilling a well, it was immediately promoted as the petrified remains of a giant who populated the earth at one time as described in Genesis.
Cigar maker George Hull put the scheme together and made a fortune from people gullible enough to pay to see it.
In the 20th century, the Loch Ness Monster brought tourism to this Scottish location by people hoping for a glimpse of this mammoth pre-historic throwback to the age of dinosaurs.
21st Century Hoax
And now we have our twenty-first century hoax – man made climate change which is a real brain – buster.
Agonizing over a choice between affordable energy and drought accompanied by inundating oceans and dying polar bears is ended. Joule Unlimited of Bedford, MA has killed, smashed, obliterated that Hobson’s choice once and forever.
Joule is operating a pilot facility in Hobbs, NM which makes gasoline, diesel and ethanol from sunlight, carbon dioxide and water, applying the twenty first century science of synthetic biology. There is no feedstock like corn or sugarcane and the end product needs no downstream refining like crude oil.
