Thanks to Molly Murray for an interesting article "Upstream sediment helps Delaware Bay wetland keep pace with sea level rise."
Although there has been much speculation, actual measurements show there has been no increased rate of sea level rise in the last century, as shown by tide gauge data from Lewes DE and around the world at tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov.
What's more, over 1,000 peer-reviewed climate papers recently published in scientific journals find strong evidence that climate changes from natural causes, not man-made ones, with no observable effect from human emissions on sea level. Report excerpts are at NoTricksZone.com with links to full papers.
The papers find strong influences on climate from the sun, with 132 papers in 2016 alone. They find strong influences from clouds and oceanic/atmospheric oscillations like El Niño, and find these are also strongly sun-influenced.
They find strong influence from volcanoes and tectonics, but only a "questionable to weak" influence from humans and CO2.
They find no increasing trends in extreme weather like hurricanes and droughts, no harmful ocean acidification, and only natural variations in ice sheets and sea ice, while elevated atmospheric CO2 raises crop yields and "greens" the planet.

The News Journal deleted the last three paragraphs (italicized) from the letter as submitted.
Compare the previously published letter (3/1/17C) from Chad Tolman on the Molly Murray story, which claimed that it understated the threat of sea level rise along the Delaware coast and elsewhere.
