Archaeological Dig in Met Square Believed to Be Proof of Rising Sea Levels in Miami

by Sep Niakan | March 16, 2015

MDM Development recently hired an archaeologist to dig at the Met Square plot, where they discovered evidence that the sea levels in Miami have risen at least a foot in about 150 years.

Bob Carr, the archaeologist, found bricks from Fort Dallas in the site, which date back to around 1860. These bricks were a foot underwater, which Carr says is evidence of the water level being much lower back then.

Miami Scientists believe that the there has been an 8-inch rise in water level since 1870. Carr believes that they are wrong, and that it really has risen 12 to 24 inches; far worse than the scientists at IPCC have calculated.

Hal Wanless, a UM Geologist, has been telling Rolling Stone, The Guardian, and many others that Miami might be doomed to a horrible fate if this is correct and the water keeps rising.
