Thus the availability bias.
Thus the availability of observation along with measurement and science but your bias above is noted.

"I often say that when you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind."-Lord Kelvin

Different doesn't mean worse. Warming allows species to expand their population and move into areas that were inhospitable before because they were too cold. But you don't hear much talk about that. They only focus on the negatives. What about the positives?

Sure there are more beetles and ticks but also more bears humans trees and other species that can now exist in areas they haven't existed before. So while more beetles may seem bad for us, birds that eat them couldn't be happier.

Maybe more deserts and scorpions too. OTOH, more solar power!

If the government doesn't stop spending beyond its means to support the demands of the public for "free" stuff, the dilution of our currency will impoverish us ending this experiment in a constitutional republic.

But in the past you've been for tax concessions to get Amazon to choose one municipality over another?

This one is also wonderful… Your "Asian" photos have a particular atmosphere that I like very much.

False narratives by selective editing Further down the linked page from the quoted text above...  :(

"The Sea Level indicator shows that sea level is rising overall in connection with climate change, but the rate of change varies by region, as do the effects. To provide a useful regional perspective, this feature examines the amount of land lost to sea level rise along the Atlantic coast from Florida to New York. It is based on satellite data that have been collected and analyzed at five-year intervals since 1996. Figure 1 divides the Atlantic coast into two regions for comparison, while Figure 2 shows the different types of land that have been lost."

I was selective because I was addressing Alan's reference to the New Jersey problem, which is not the same as all problems in coastal areas, for the reason I highlighted. That's not a false narrative. Your quote from the same article confirms that.

"The Sea Level indicator shows that sea level is rising overall in connection with climate change, but the rate of change varies by region, as do the effects."

I don't deny that the average global sea level is rising, and I don't dispute that during the last 150 years or so, there has been a slight warming trend of around 1 degree C, which is very likely not an unusual temperature change in the history of humanity. Consider the 'Roman Warm Period', the 'Dark Ages', The 'Medieval Warm Period', and the 'Little Ice Age' which is the starting point for our current warming trend.

… Now, the changes are happening right before our eyes….

Thus the availability bias.
