Click the link to read a great letter from an engineer in Singapore where he states that hydrographers (surveyers who map sea levels) are agreed that sea levels are not rising. Often I read or hear some hoopla over indigenous Alaskans having to move inland because of so-called rising sea levels. I always start yelping, "It's coastal erosion, not rising sea levels, that's causing that, you idiots!"
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Coastal erosion (or shoreline erosion see also beach evolution) is the local loss of subaerial coastal landmass due to natural processes such as waves, winds and tides, or even due to human interference. Large storm-generated waves often cause coastal erosion."
