Sea level mysteriously rises two feet along east coast

Sea levels are constantly fluctuating, but this summer’s rise of two feet along the east coast “surprised scientists who forecast such periodic fluctuations.” (National Geographic) Experts believe a weakened Gulf Stream is to blame. What’s the Gulf Stream? It’s “the superhighway of ocean water off the U.S. East Coast… that pulls water into its ‘orbit’ and away from the East Coast.

National Geographic says global warming isn’t to blame for the sea level rise. But are we sure that the Gulf Stream isn’t being weakened by a domino effect that starts with greenhouse gas crowding the atmosphere?

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
