|Water mining causes ocean levels to rise, not co2|

Yet more proof that climate science is not settled was presented this past week. A new study, which will be published in Geophysics Research Letters, says that water mining, when you use groundwater to water crops, accounts for as much as a quarter of the global sea-level rise.
Even as Franny Armstrong, and her 10:10 campaign, celebrate their day of cutting back carbon emissions by 10 percent, we are being presented with study after study showing that the climate debate is far from over.
Yet people like Franny, or the supporters of AB32 in California, continue to charge ahead with carbon emission reduction schemes. It is obvious they care nothing for how carbon reduction measures will increase energy costs and hurt working-class families. Now it's obvious they also don't care that numerous studies have suggested their plans will have little to no impact on the climate.
It is time for climate science to stop being a soapbox for politicians and rabid environmentalists. It is time for it to return to the ways of reason, unbiased logic, and the skepticism which has always upheld the profession.
