"The sea will rise only 8 inches, because … because … well, SHUT UP, that’s because why."

Backward North Carolina legislators attempt to make accurate measurement of coastal sea level rise against the law.

Which ... is exactly like saying, do not predict tomorrow’s weather based on radar images of a hurricane swirling offshore, moving west towards us with 60-mph winds and ten inches of rain. Predict the weather based on the last two weeks of fair weather with gentle breezes towards the east. Don’t use radar and barometers; use the Farmer’s Almanac and what grandpa remembers.
