For those that haven’t been there, or been there during high tide where it actually looks like a lake/big buddy of water, this is it during a low tide. The fishing can be very active since most fish end up concentrated in these channels. We didn’t catch anything big this time out, but plenty of these little guys. Plus there were a few crocodiles to look at up on the banks.

Unfortunately, it looks as if rising sea levels will eventually claim the area. Isn’t that why the Park Service is building/built/rebuilt the dams? They’re supposed to be the stop gap to head off the process man put in effect the many years ago?
Remember reading that when East Cape Canal was first dug, you could jump across it. And, that Ingram was a natural freshwater lake/estuary…
The sea levels are not rising, you are just drinking the Kool Aid.

Ok, I guess South Florida is just sinking then…too many people weighing it down and all…
It’s a swamp. You’re trying to tell me that the sea level is rising but only in certain areas? 35 years launching at the same boat ramps and the water is no higher than it ever was. If you can provide REAL proof thaf this is happening I’d like to see it, otherwise stop with the climate change bullshit. Greta Thumberg sucks.
I had a guy here in Texas text me not long ago telling me that the water levels have risen over a foot higher than historical levels in my home waters. It’s nonsense. I wadefish, run boats, pole and launch in the same areas and the water is not a foot higher than it used to be. Let me guess…you believe in the covid shots, social distancing, dust masks and all that BS was a good idea too? Some of you will buy any propaganda mainstream media shoves down your throats and it is comical.

Link to a paper written in 2010. The first paragraph outlines the problem clearly.


Abstract The Cape Sable peninsula is located on the southwestern tip of the Florida peninsula within Everglades National Park (ENP). Lake Ingraham, the largest lake within Cape Sable, is now connected to the Gulf of Mexico and western Florida Bay by canals built in the early 1920’s. Some of these canals breached a natural marl ridge located to the north of Lake Ingraham. These connections altered the landscape of this area allowing for the transport of sediments to and from Lake Ingraham. Saline intrusion into the formerly fresh interior marsh has impacted the local ecology. Earthen dams installed in the 1950’s and 1960’s in canals that breached the marl ridge have repeatedly failed. Sheet pile dams installed in the early 1990’s subsequently failed resulting in the continued alteration of Lake Ingraham and the interior marsh.
@Miragein did you read this?

“The incursion of saltwater into formerly freshwater marsh systems as the result of sea level rise has also led to physical collapse of the marshes. This process has been accelerated on Cape Sable by saltwater moving through the canals past the marl ridge and through the smaller canals where the plugs have failed. Sediment, and probably nutrients, from the collapsed marsh also make their way to Florida Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Replacing the failed plugs is expected to slow the rate of marsh collapse and the loss of sediment and nutrients from the interior marshes of Cape Sable (URS Corporation 2009).”
There is zero evidence that sea levels are rising and definitely not 23 centimeters (9.055 inches) since 1930. This is propaganda driven by our wonderful elites that use trauma based mind control to brainwash the masses. They are still talking about Al Gore’s global warming in these research articles and the goalposts have been moved once again since then and now they call it climate change because the actual temperature was not rising as much as they claimed it would and they changed the name once again to fit the narrative.
The earth goes through slow changes or cycles of temperature and has long before industry came to be. There was no petroleum industry or burning of fuel to get the earth past the ice age. It’s because the cyclic and subtle variations in temperature are by design. All the rest of this bullshit you believe is as real as unicorn farts and fairy dust. Judging by your behavior during the covid plannedemic you are also easily fooled. I remember all the posts.

What is real is man diverting water flow by damming some areas, dredging canals in others and hurricane erosion. They just want you to believe that 9 inches of water is what is collapsing the marsh when in reality it’s exactly what I stated it was…man diverting the natural flow of fresh water to the sea and the overwhelming exponential population explosion of coastal areas especially the more sensitive peninsula we know as Florida.

Here is another bit of research on the history of the area. Pages 3-5 are littered with propaganda trying to persuade people to believe sea levels are rising at a rapid rate since 1930 and the man made canals, dams and natural hurticanes had nothing to do with the erosion issues…and 2400 to 2500 years ago (important time if you know the history of man) to now sea levels were already rising 3-5 centimeters per century without industry (if you believe man elevated the temperature of the earth enough to melt glaciers).

You really have to look at any information provided by government sources as suspect. They have earned our distrust honestly, lol.

The marsh collapsing or sinking due to erosion, man-made depletion of and/or changes to the Biscayne Aquifer, massive movement of sediment, additional tidal saltwater intrusion and stronger currents from man-made canals, make more sense than the BS narrative about climate change or sea levels rising.
Exactly

Every trip into the Everglades (both north and south) provides evidence to me that the saltwater is in places that it didn't used to be. Stumps of giant black mangrove trees and sable palms with their feet wet indicate, to me anyway, that the water levels are changing. Was it that way a thousand years ago? Maybe, maybe not. I've seen this same "evidence" in places as different as Mud Bay and Turner River. I'm not a scientist, I just know what I see. I'm sure the human race is causing irreparable harm to that Park, no way or another. Tread lightly... I hope we can enjoy it for the rest of our and our children's lives.
Captain LeMay explained it very well.

Okay climate alarmists answer this question for me if sea levels are rising do you think the elites would be buying oceanfront property? Even better do you thinks banks would loan money to investors building high-rise on the beach? Do banks loan money to lose money? You have to look behind the bullshit people it's not that hard to see if you're eyes are open.
Don’t expect much if you are asking a climate activist/wokester to make sense of anything.
Global warming…but we had record low temperatures this month for an extended period. That’s why they had to change the name of their conspiracy theory to climate change…current weather doesn’t fit their global warming narrative any more. They even blamed the hurricanes on us! Weather is always going to change but people (human nature) generally will not. These wokesters cling to all sorts of nonsense and believe it until they don’t then they’ll act like they still believe it so they don’t look like they were fooled. It’s exhausting.
