 Spotted this page at the Cato Inst:


 It gets excited by some research that suggests ground water extraction contributes to sea level rise.

What it fails to point out is that large scale ground water extraction without replenishment has an obvious limit, plus is damaging to long term water supplies and agriculture. It is unsustainable. So even if it is making a contribution to sea levels, it is also a serious water management problem!
