EVERYBODY PANIC

Earlier this week, California Gov. Jerry Brown said that within a couple hundred years the seas could rise up to four feet, which would put Los Angeles International Airport under water. Brown used that warning as a clarion call to start thinking about the tens of billions that would have to be spent to move the airport.

The problem: Even if Brown’s catastrophic “four foot sea rise” scenario were correct, LAX is about 125 feet above sea level. The math is settled!

Realizing Brown had breached the super-wild exaggeration threshold, Moonbeam’s office said he “misspoke,” which is merely code for “fear mongering fail”:

An aide to Jerry Brown confirmed Wednesday that the governor was wrong when he said global warming would eventually cause rising seawater to inundate Los Angeles International Airport.

Citing new studies, Brown called attention to the global warming issue on Tuesday, saying a predicted 4-foot rise in sea level within the next 200 years could force the relocation of LAX at a cost of billions of dollars.
[…]
“The governor misspoke about LAX,” said Evan Westrup, a spokesman for the Brown administration.

“Misspoke” and “caught in a huge lie” are interchangeable for GW alarmists.

Knowing that LAX is at least temporarily safe from being flooded, look for Brown’s liberal version of “fiscal responsibility” to kick in:

That sounds about right.
