University of Arizona puts climate station in parking lot and warns about catastrophic sea level rise

The climate station in the above picture is run by the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Arizona. The same University is now warning about catastrophic sea level rise from anthropogenic global warming.Can you say "no credibility?"
(WUWT)- Rising sea levels could threaten an average of 9 percent of the land within 180 U.S. coastal cities by 2100, according to new research led by University of Arizona scientists.

The Gulf and southern Atlantic coasts will be particularly hard hit. Miami, New Orleans, Tampa, Fla., and Virginia Beach, Va. could lose more than 10 percent of their land area by 2100.

The research is the first analysis of vulnerability to sea-level rise that includes every U.S. coastal city in the lower 48 with a population of 50,000 or more.

The climate station in the parking lot may or may not be appropriate, depending on how it is used. It is certainly useless for recording regional climate change, but it could be very useful in a study of how surroundings influence the measurements.

Its probably useless in measuring sea level rise. lol.
