ALARMIST REPORT CLAIMS "SEA LEVELS TO RISE 8 FOOT"

Here is the report in my local paper. It is typical of the way journalists publish stories without including any evidence for them. The account even contradicts itself. At one point it says:

"The scientists and oceanographers reveal sea level changes have rapidly increased above natural standards since the industrial revolution."

A little later it says: "They concluded the sea-level was “just within” natural expectations, but was still quite fast by natural standards."

In the same paper there is an editorial comment headed "Can we prevent an 8 foot sea level rise?" It looks remarkably like naked propaganda. I wonder why the paper wants to take this stance.
