We are fucked! We are bigger fucked than we knew. 
The other day I found myself sitting on a park bench down at the harbour (got no idea how or why I ended up there), and after a couple of hours of mindless indolence I noticed that the level of the ocean had risen slightly! Scary.

It has nothing to do with anything "pagan". Mother Gaia is just the human's inner voice, like the serpent in Genesis 3 was Eve's inner voice.
Several years ago I found myself listening to a lecture at Griffith University as part of an Environmental Science course. The lecturer told us all about Gaia, a manifestation of paganism which is apparently something science students need to know about. Weird.

Yes, I can imagine you frozen in fear your heart going pitted-patter and your mind stuck in prayer begging god anything, anything, if only he would keep the ocean from rising up and drowning you. I'm sure this was a major concern of yours in your apocryphal tale.
Well ... almost. I started screaming hysterically that the ocean was rising and was beginning to panic, when some people nearby told me it was only the tide coming in. I hadn't thought of that.

Dredge, I assume your harbor side park bench is on the island nation of Travalu. From this article:
"Already, two of Tuvalu’s nine islands are on the verge of going under, the government says, swallowed by sea-rise and coastal erosion. Most of the islands sit barely three metres above sea level, and at its narrowest point, Fongafale stretches just 20m across."
Ah yes ... Tuvalu. Courtesy of relentless climate-change propaganda, we're well aware of those islands here in Australia.
Thousands of years ago the Tuvalu islands were probably volcanic mountains of considerable height, but they've slowly been sinking back into the sea and are now reduced to low-lying coral atolls. Coral atolls are often roughly circular or cresent-shaped, because the last part of the mountains to disappear beneath the waves is the volcanic crater on top.
So it's entirely possible that Tuvalu is sinking, rather than being swallowed up by a rising ocean.
Furthermore, Tuvalu is situated on the notoriously volcanic "the Ring of Fire", which is comprised of the most tectonically active and unstable regions on earth. Since tectonic plates can move up or down (think of the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami that originated in Indonesia), it's possible a downwards-moving tectonic plate could be contributing to Tuvalu's problems, rather than rising sea levels.
Or are you on the Alaska coast:
"Rising sea levels have eroded an Inupiat Eskimo village for decades. Now, residents of Shishmaref, Alaska, have officially voted to relocate. The island community, located near the Bering Strait, opted to move rather than remain in place with added safety measures to protect against the rising waters."
Shishmaref is situated very close to the "Ring of Fire", so maybe it's problems are due to vertical tectonic movement, not rising sea levels.
If the oceans are indeed rising, they will be rising at every point of every coastline on the planet, yet all we've heard about for the last twenty years are the problems at the grand total of TWO locations - Tuvalu and Shishmaref. Funny, that.
Your name is appropriate for this topic.
Thank you.

It's weird that you pick such trivia to respond to. There are plenty of posts with more substance that you could have replied to - if you had any substance.
Thank you for considering my trivial post worthy of a response.

The global climate crisis isn't just causing sea level rise, which is currently very gradual at less than a centimeter a year, but is causing significantly harsher storms and hurricanes, much higher storm surges, and much faster coastal erosion.
Oh, I get it - you have next to nothing to offer as evidence that rising sea levels are problematic, so you've resorted to trying to change the subject.
If "global warming" were causing alarming rises in sea levels, two countries especially would be screaming blue bloody murder - the Netherlands and Bangladesh. But what do we hear from them? Sweet bugger-all.
