Sea level is rising—and at an accelerating rate. Global average sea level has increased 8 inches since 1880. Several locations along the East Coast and Gulf of Mexico have experienced more than 8 inches of local sea level rise in only the past 50 years.
My personal thoughts have been of underwater seismic activities causing new land formations that displace water as liquids cannot be compressed, even against 14.7 p.s.i. of atmospheric pressure at sea level. Only recently, scientists in Japan have concluded similar.
