"Accelerating sea level rise due to global warming is supposed to eat away at the shorelines across the globe. However, a recent paper published in the journal Nature here authored by a team scientists led by Arjen Luijendijk found that some 75% of the world’s sandy shorelines are stable or growing!
An analysis of satellite-derived shoreline data indicates that 24% of the world’s sandy beaches are eroding at rates exceeding 0.5 m/yr, but 28% are accreting and 48% are stable.
Also, erosion rates exceed 5 m/yr along 4% of the sandy shoreline and are greater than 10 m/yr for 2% of the global sandy shoreline."
Geologist Dr. Don Easterbrook slams study: "If we take an average of about 1.5 ft per century, expected sea level along the Texas coast by 2100 will be about 12 inches, a far cry from the 6-7 ft predicted by this (stupid) report!"
