Mayor Of Disappearing VA Island Shuts Down Al Gore’s Seal Level Claim

Interesting report from The Blaze:

James “Ooker” Eskridge is the mayor of a town on an island disappearing in the Chesapeake Bay, but rather than see it as evidence of global warming, he used it to shut down Al Gore’s narrative that the seas are rising because of climate change. Eskridge faced the climate warming alarmist during a CNN town hall on global warming. “I’m a commercial crabber,” Eskridge said, “and I’ve been working the Chesapeake Bay for fifty-plus years. And I have a crab house business out on the water. And water level is the same it was when the place was built in 1970.” — “I’m not a scientist but I’m a keen observer, and if sea levels rises are occurring,” he asked, “why am I not seeing signs of it?”
