Sea levels are rising everywhere on the globe except in Breitbart and other fake news sites.

Core samples, tide gauge readings, and, most recently, satellite measurements tell us that over the past century, the Global Mean Sea Level (GMSL) has risen by 4 to 8 inches (10 to 20 centimeters). However, the annual rate of rise over the past 20 years has been 0.13 inches (3.2 millimeters) a year, roughly twice the average speed of the preceding 80 years.

one of their bigger disasters has been their over response to the risks of ddt to control insects. millions die every year from malaria alone.
Ah yes, dragging up the "DDT is good for you" canard. Educate yourself.

Vector control refers to methods used to decrease malaria by reducing the levels of transmission by mosquitoes. For individual protection, the most effective insect repellents are based on DEET or picaridin. Insecticide-treated mosquito nets (ITNs) and indoor residual spraying (IRS) have been shown to be highly effective in preventing malaria among children in areas where malaria is common....

Mosquito nets help keep mosquitoes away from people and reduce infection rates and transmission of malaria. Nets are not a perfect barrier and are often treated with an insecticide designed to kill the mosquito before it has time to find a way past the net. Insecticide-treated nets are estimated to be twice as effective as untreated nets and offer greater than 70% protection compared with no net. Between 2000 and 2008, the use of ITNs saved the lives of an estimated 250,000 infants in Sub-Saharan Africa. About 13% of households in Sub-Saharan countries owned ITNs in 2007 and 31% of African households were estimated to own at least one ITN in 2008. In 2000, 1.7 million (1.8%) African children living in areas of the world where malaria is common were protected by an ITN. That number increased to 20.3 million (18.5%) African children using ITNs in 2007, leaving 89.6 million children unprotected and to 68% African children using mosquito nets in 2015. Most nets are impregnated with pyrethroids, a class of insecticides with low toxicity. They are most effective when used from dusk to dawn. It is recommended to hang a large "bed net" above the center of a bed and either tuck the edges under the mattress or make sure it is large enough such that it touches the ground.[72]

Indoor residual spraying is the spraying of insecticides on the walls inside a home. After feeding, many mosquitoes rest on a nearby surface while digesting the bloodmeal, so if the walls of houses have been coated with insecticides, the resting mosquitoes can be killed before they can bite another person and transfer the malaria parasite. As of 2006, the World Health Organization recommends 12 insecticides in IRS operations, including DDT and the pyrethroids cyfluthrin and deltamethrin. This public health use of small amounts of DDT is permitted under the Stockholm Convention, which prohibits its agricultural use. One problem with all forms of IRS is insecticide resistance. Mosquitoes affected by IRS tend to rest and live indoors, and due to the irritation caused by spraying, their descendants tend to rest and live outdoors, meaning that they are less affected by the IRS.

Infographic: Sea Level Rise and Global Warming

Sea level is rising—and at an accelerating rate—especially along the U.S. East Coast and Gulf of Mexico.

Those peer reviewed right wing concepts of academic journals reporting climate research, Breitbart and Climate Depot.

Just wow.

The controversy in agriculture is GMO corn and soybeans. All of my fields are planted with GMO seed for a variety of reasons. On the flip side the Japanese pay high dollar for non-GMO soybeans but the yield is low. Back in the day you were lucky to get one hundred bushels of shelled corn per acre but today you can easily get 200 bushels of shelled corn per acre using GMO seed. Using GMO you can no-till which eliminates soil erosion.

edit: We must have a nematode epidemic up here because the farm newspapers keep talking about it and products are being made to kill the nematodes but I say leave them nematodes alone.

How can it be a fake news site, it says what he wants to believe?

Isn't that enough?
