In the US Congress explained the effect of falling rocks in the sea

US Congressman Mo Brooks said at a hearing in Congress on Ecology that the level of the ocean was allegedly rising due to the fall of rocks and soil.


In the US Congress explained the effect of falling rocks in the sea


Hearings were held this week in the committee on science, space and technology of the House of Representatives. Climate scientist Philip Duffy answered congressmen’s questions about climate. In particular, he said that world ocean levels are growing four times faster than 100 years ago.

Alabama Congressman Brooks stated that soil erosion, among other things, is to blame.

Every time a soil or rock or all that happens in the sea, this causes the sea level to rise, as less space remains in the ocean and the bottom rises.
- declared the congressman

The scientist answered that this effect is extremely insignificant compared with the effect of human activity, which leads to the melting of ice around the poles.

A number of members of the US Republican Party publicly doubt the existence of the human factor in global warming or call it insignificant. President Donald Trump announced the withdrawal of the United States from the Paris Agreement, which obliges countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, RIA reports News

    But he is right laughing
    And also on the rocks falling into the seas and oceans, a buoyancy force is equal to the weight of sea water in the volume of debris falling into the ocean.

          And we need to argue that the cliffs falling into the water are to blame for the rising sea level.

          Here we can well support Trump

          Warming is beneficial for us, let it get warmer, summer will be longer, fruits are growing, ice is melting

          Why haven’t we come out of the climate agreement?

          Again solidarity with the "world community"?

          Especially now, after all that this community has presented to us

          Build power plants near the borders of the EU, thermal, nuclear, let them rejoice

              If we support Trump in this, then it will immediately turn out that specifically Russian emissions are to blame. Russians have different CO2, which really affects the climate. And American CO2 is democratic, and can only influence to the benefit, and not to the detriment.

          And I will add that in the summer season everyone is pounding to the sea and therefore from morning to lunch the level of the World Ocean rises by 10 centimeters. It is noted that the water rises especially strongly in the USA, where the level of more than 30% of the population has a BMI> 40.

        Australia rises above the surrounding plates by ~ 3 km (actually, about 3,8 km is the average depth of the World Ocean) and its area is 7,7 million square meters. km., therefore, the volume of 29,2 million cubic meters. km
        And the volume of the World Ocean is 1'371 million cubic meters. km So, 80 meters rise, I think. But, as I understand it, such large areas of land at once cannot go under water. While one mainland drowns, another bulges.

          Well, that’s yes, if you completely drown the second Australia, which is hardly a success. This time ....
          Secondly, we do not take into account the increase in the area of ​​the ocean due to such flooding, part of the water will stupidly go into gorges, lowlands, and even underground, into caves. Thirdly, we drown Australia as a parallelepiped with a height of 3 km and a width / length of 3850 km, which is also not entirely true, in real life the volume will be less.
          That is, according to rough estimates, the water will rise meters to 50. So yes, I was mistaken, it is quite a lot.

    In the US Congress explained the effect of falling rocks in the sea

    when my wife tells me that it’s stupid to sit on the site, I understand what it is about.
    What is this headline and what is the translation of the speech in Congress?
    They floated in the mind of a journalist? \
    Alabama congressman Brooks pleads guilty among other things soil erosion

    I omit the translation itself (and what smells even Ukrainian), but the keywords are, among other things.
    Every time a soil or rock or all that happens in the sea, this causes the sea level to rise, as less space remains in the ocean and the bottom rises.

    Congressmen are certainly not geniuses, but they are not deputies of the Duma or BP. It’s better to read from the source .... since they send messages from the USA to the Russian Federation, it’s better to know English yourself.
    The bottom level (more precisely, the change in relief) also affects the way. There, and the movement of lithospheric plates, etc.
    In general, the title does not correspond to the content once - a very poor translation, these are two ...
    From this they make a "sensation" about the level of Americans — that's three! "
    President Donald Trump announces US withdrawal from Paris Agreement

    According to the logic of what is happening and the benefits of global warming, in their place should have been the Russian Federation. For she is the main beneficiary of the GP.
    Two main troubles of Russia are moisture and heat are solved by themselves.
    And the United States supports those scientific paradigms that are currently beneficial to them.

    What is the total displacement of the Amer Navy? It grows and pushes water out of the oceans. If you remove it, then the level will fall, isthmuses will appear between the islands, it will be easier for people to communicate and peace in the whole world will come! Just kidding, of course.:)

    Site Collections.
    You cannot read such articles.
    You have such a craving for sarcasm towards the Americans that you just hold on.
    Just draw conclusions about the mental abilities of those in power.
    That's all.

    Every time a soil or rock or all that happens in the sea, this causes the sea level to rise, as less space remains in the ocean and the bottom rises.
    - declared the congressman

    Mdayayayayaya. The brain of this giant is probably the size of a dried raisin. (marasmus?)
    The area of ​​the oceans 361 260 000 km2 or 361 260 000 000 000 m2. To raise this surface by 1 m, the same amount of m3 of soil, or 361 260 km3, is required. Can he even imagine this volume? Yes, all of Japan under the water goes the ocean does not move.
    No, ocean levels rise because islands of volcanic origin grow repeat .
    Oh, remembered! China! Artificial islands, that's where the legs grow. repeat

    Not the congress, but the house of the “scientists,” to see the “gongresman,” he learned the law of Archimedes well, to see further development slowed down. Anglo-Saxons - as always.

    This is all fundamentally wrong. The main source of sea level rise is beer. And the ice melts because of it, they are yellow in color and smell bad.
