Current species extinction rates are unprecedented in the fossil record.
Royal Society: “There are very strong indications that the current rate of species extinctions far exceeds anything in the fossil record.”
Please take time to absorb all that is written there including many excellent comment.
and that is not all.
Heard of the North Pacific gyre and the plastic garbage patch?:

Message to lunk:
Avoiding the answering of my questions by locking a thread is not fair play as in:
Stephen Schneider thread
Insrtead you repeat stuff I have debunked backed with evidence and you provide a singular lack of support for your erroneous ideas as with this:
i have a little problem with the past predictions of oceans rising.
(since the '60's!)
The reason that you see lower tides in your local is because the land is rising as the Pacific plate subducts beneath, as I have repeatedly told you. But that is another well researched and sound scientifically known fact that you refuse to acknowledge.
Try explaining how the structure that is the European Alps formed by an expanding earth. Ask yourself why the top of the Matterhorn is a huge chunk of gneiss, albeit somewhat ground down by glaciers and then the carbon cycle working with rain, winds and gravity to further errode, that could only have come from the African continent.
Here are some clues, not that I have not supplied many more over time:
Waves in the bathtub Why sea level rise isn’t level at all
Scientists withdraw low-ball estimate of sea level rise — media are confused and anti-science crowd pounces
and as for:
If water evaporates quicker under lower atmospheric pressure,
then a rise in ocean levels would accelerate evaporation,
reducing that rise.
Is atmospheric pressure overall falling? Who is telling you that?
You should study this:
The sky IS falling
On the other hand, what is causing a rise in atmospheric moisture levels is rising temperature. The energy stored is put into an accelerated hydrological cycle as people in Pakistan have discovered. Tropical storms over parts of the US have also intensified whilst other parts continue to desicate:
Masters: “Strongest storm ever recorded in the Midwest smashes all-time pressure records”
Study: Global warming is driving increased frequency of extreme wet or dry summer weather in southeast, so droughts and deluges are likely to get worse
Lunk, it would make a change if you tried to grasp these topics rather than evading and repeating unsupported nonsense dressed up as verse.

Ah a Weird AL in geology.
and the original.
There must be some maximum limits to mountains heights, and seabeds depths, to keep the roundness of our planet. Also, there seem to be man-made structures very deep underwater.
So it is very likely that land masses may drastically rise and fall. at times.
But this idea of drifting continents is an illusion of growth. The continents were all together on a smaller globe. But this is very slow geologically. The oceans are like stretch marks between the continents. This would mean that the pacific ring of fire is widening, causing a bunching of the edges, making mountains and volcanoes.
i'm a little more concerned about rocks out in space, at the moment. There seem to be a lot more of them lately...
and i don't think they are human caused.
