On Cape Cod, climate change is terrifyingly real
The illogicality of Warmists knows no bounds. They admit that some climate episode they want to exploit is local and then talk as if it was a global effect. They say that in the Cape Cod climate "warming is faster than nearly any in the world". So it is local data about a local effect and has no evidentiary value about global anything, including global warming. So the attributions below are mere opinion.
So what is warming Cape Cod? Nobody knows but local eddies in the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation -- known to you as the Gulf Stream -- would be a likely area of enquiry
The Cape Cod we love is at risk. It is perched on a stretch of ocean warming faster than nearly any in the world. And as much as we might wish it away, as hard as we try to ignore it, the effects of climate change here are already visible, tangible, measurable, disturbing.
Perfect summers have grown hotter and muggier. Storms arrive violently, and more often.
People here like to say that the only thing constant about the Cape is change, but what human-caused climate change has already wrought here is not the same old uncertainty. It is loss.
And so we have criss-crossed the Cape in search of what is slipping away.
The Cape is fundamentally a peaceful place. For generations, we have talked about joy and family and the restorative power of open ocean and unspoiled sand.
But talk to the people who live and work here, who study emerging threats to the place they’ve always known, and you will hear them use different words: Higher ground. Breach. Retreat.
