Hmmmm, after reading through a few of the comments below it would appear that some people didn’t get the memo from ‘Nature’
Earth’s surface water change over the past 30 years: ‘Nature Climate Change’ 8/2016
“Earth’s surface gained 115,000 km2 of water and 173,000 km2 of land over the past 30 years, including 20,135 km2 of water and 33,700 km2 of land in coastal areas…We expected that the coast would start to retreat due to sea level rise, but the most surprising thing is that the coasts are growing all over the world,” said Dr Baart.”
The study is paywalled so I included the BBC report. Why wasn’t THIS reported by the MSM? It’s not a mystery.
