The 25 Days Of Honda Days: Day VII, 1993 Honda Del Sol

On the seventh day of Honda Days, Honda gave to me: a 1993 Honda Del Sol.

A lot has changed since 1993. Some for the better, some for the worst. We all know this (at least those of us who were alive at this time).

How were sea levels then? Oy, according to an NOAA report.

Sea level has been rising over the past century, and the rate has increased in recent decades. In 2017, global mean sea level was 3 inches (77 millimeters) above the 1993 average—the highest annual average in the satellite record (1993-present). It was the sixth consecutive year, and the 22nd out of the last 24 years in which global mean sea level increased relative to the previous year.

Since the start of the satellite sea level record in 1993, the average rate of sea level has been about one-eighth of an inch (3.1 mm) per year. The rising water level is mostly due to a combination of meltwater from glaciers and ice sheets and thermal expansion of seawater as it warms.

Water levels were lower and cooler. I wonder why this is. Hmmm.
