⛵️ Miniboat Update!

Yesterday, our Education Team visited St. Joseph’s Elementary School in Harbour Breton, Newfoundland! The students got to see miniboat HK Pride, which landed on Flat Island in August. After learning about the miniboats and "Old Ironsides," they opened the hold to see what the Harvard Kent students in Charlestown, Massachusetts had stored there before the boat's launch. St. Joseph's students will add memorabilia from their town and school before the boat is relaunched into the Atlantic Ocean. Where will it end up next?

🌎 Stay tuned to see more from our Canadian travels. And follow the miniboat journey at bit.ly/2Zy31Qt

🌊 The pace of relative sea level rise in Boston Harbor has been accelerating since 1826.

How do we know?

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has kept daily records of Boston’s tides since 1921, and early records created by civil engineers right here in the Charlestown Navy Yard allow researchers to stretch that data back another century to the 1820s. This data predicts that, at this rapidly accelerating pace, the sea level in Boston could rise an additional 36 inches in the next 50 years if global greenhouse gas emissions are not greatly reduced.

Next time you visit the Museum and Navy Yard, check out our outdoor exhibit "A Rising Sea" at the head of Dry Dock 2 to learn more. Or visit our website at bit.ly/2XIuw99

It's just the Earth going through another natural cycle and you can't stop that.

A sea monster COULD rise up out of the muck on the ocean floor and eat all the parking lots in the world!

"This data predicts that, at this rapidly accelerating pace, the sea level in Boston could rise an additional 36 inches in the next 50 years." It could also predict that the oceans will not rise.....

Greenland's ice is melting seven times faster now than it was in the 1990s. If all the ice that is on Greenland were to melt or calve into the ocean, global sea level would rise 7.2 meters (21 feet.)

That’s because the Little Ice Age didn’t end until around 1850.

This has nothing to the climate change being spewed by the democrats and radicals. It's a natural cycle. Besides haven't these guys heard about how the moon and the sun can affect the earth's climate, tides etc.? Not to mention the fact that the continental plates move.

Maybe they shouldn’t have driven so many miles back in 1826

Only your tax dollars can stop this! Everyone empty your pockets for the next globalist shake down.

So what you are saying, you have records spanning 200 years on a planet that is 4.56 Billion years old...

Like to see or read anything about Old Ironsides, (my hometown), but please not democratic talki g points! When the seas are over Obamas head on Marthas Vineyard ,then ill be concerned

I do not dispute a rise in sea level over time. I dispute the political agenda attached to the apocalyptical forecasting of events based on current data, which has become pure propaganda for the "I hate America", "lets destroy the economy", "its Americans fault" camp. The truth is, there is very little humans can do about global warming, It is a heliocentric (SUN) issue, but politics has never cared much for facts, or science, for that matter. Its very disheartening to see USS Constitution Museum now picking up the mouthpiece for this maligned agenda. But, thank you for taking the time and money to educate visitors on the impending doom in the next 50 years. Didn't Al Gore tell us 30 years ago it would all be underwater by 2020? yet here we are
