King Tides are coming. See the highest high tides and lowest low tides of the year on November 15-16 and December 13-15, 2020.

A King Tide is a non-scientific term people often use to describe exceptionally high tides. Tides are long-period waves that roll around the planet as the ocean is "pulled" back and forth by the gravitational pull of the moon and the sun as these bodies interact with the Earth in their monthly and yearly orbits. Higher than normal tides typically occur during a new or full moon and when the Moon is at its perigee, or during specific seasons around the country.

King Tides occur when the Moon aligns with the Sun, and is also at its closest position relative to the Earth. This exerts cumulative gravitational pulls on Earth, resulting in the most extreme high and low tides of the year. In California, experts say that King Tides today are what we can expect our daily high tide to look like in the next few decades under climate change and sea level rise predictions.

This is what LA's coastline could have looked like had city planners from the 1950s/60s actually had their proposed futurist projects been built. Historically these projects were blocked or defunded through protests, environmental concerns, and budget cuts..
