Robust Natural Variability Affirmed In Global Sea Level Rise Rates - No Correlation With CO2 Forcing

Robust Natural Variability Affirmed In Global Sea Level Rise Rates – No Correlation With CO2 Forcing

 Tide Gauge Evidence: Sea Levels  Rose Faster Before 1950 Than Since In recent years it has become increasingly apparent that tide gauge measurements of sea level rise often do not align with climate model expectations. The models are predicated on the assumption that anthropogenic CO2 emissions, which have risen explosively since about 1950, are the drivers of modern […]

AGW ‘Disaster’ Predictions Recycled 1978: 5 Meter Sea Level Rise By 2028  2015: 10 Feet Sea Level Rise By 2065  Forecasting human-caused climate disaster is anything but new. Nearly 40 years ago, a landmark paper was published in the prestigious scientific journal Nature providing a dapper rubric for the modern human-caused climate disaster papers to follow. […]

10 New Papers: Sea Levels 1 - 6 Meters Higher 4,000 - 6,000 Years Ago

10 New Papers: Sea Levels 1 – 6 Meters Higher 4,000 – 6,000 Years Ago

Sea Levels Meters Higher While CO2 Levels Were Below 300 ppm   Image Yoon et al., 2017 Before the advent of the industrial revolution in the late 18th to early 19th centuries, carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations hovered around 280 parts per million (ppm). Within the last century, atmospheric CO2 concentrations have risen dramatically.  Just recently they […]

New Paper: Greenland Gained Ice Between 1940s-2000s, Added Just 1.5 cm To Sea Levels Since 1900

New Paper: Greenland Gained Ice Between 1940s-2000s, Added Just 1.5 cm To Sea Levels Since 1900

Greenland’s Ice Melt Contribution To Sea Level Just 1.5 cm For 1900-2010 As the HadCRUT4 temperature data indicate, there has been no net warming trend in the Arctic for the last 80 years.  In fact, from the early 1940s to the mid-1990s, the Arctic cooled. HadCRUT Arctic Temperature 1920-2017 (Climate4You) Due to its Arctic location, Greenland […]

 Temperatures, Sea Levels ‘Naturally’ Rise  30 – 40 Times Faster Than Today’s Rates Modern Temperatures Only Rising 0.05°C/Decade Since 1850, CO2 concentrations have risen from 285 ppm to 400 ppm.  During these ~165 years, the IPCC has concluded that surface temperatures have warmed by 0.78°C.  This is a warming rate of only 0.05°C per decade for 1850-2012 — […]

New Paper Indicates Antarctica Has Been Gaining Mass Since 1800

New Paper Indicates Antarctica Has Been Gaining Mass Since 1800

Antarctica Has Been Gaining Ice, Lowering Sea Level For Centuries “Antarctica is not currently contributing to sea level rise, but is taking 0.23 millimeters per year away” — NASA Study: Mass Gains of Antarctic Ice Sheet Greater than Losses For decades scientists have suggested that the effects of a climatic warming would likely lead to an […]

4 New Papers Suggest Falling Sea Levels More Harmful To Corals Than Rapidly Rising Sea Levels

4 New Papers Suggest Falling Sea Levels More Harmful To Corals Than Rapidly Rising Sea Levels

Are Modern Rates Of Sea Level Rise Too Slow For Optimal Coral Growth? Since the 20th century began, global sea levels have been rising at rates of about 1.7 – 1.8 mm/year, or about 0.17 to 0.18 of a meter (~7  inches) per century. NOAA  Zerbini et al., 2017 “Our estimated rates for the northern Mediterranean, […]

35 Scientific Papers: Global Sea Levels Were 1 - 2 Meters Higher Than Now For Most Of The Last 7,000 Years

35 Scientific Papers: Global Sea Levels Were 1 – 2 Meters Higher Than Now For Most Of The Last 7,000 Years

CO2 Concentration Changes Do Not Drive Sea Levels From about 7000 years ago to 2000 years ago, or from the Mid- to Late-Holocene, atmospheric CO2 concentrations varied between only about 260 and 270 parts per million, or ppm.  Such low CO2 concentrations are believed to be “safe” for the planet, as they are significantly lower […]

Another Showcase Example Of Fake Science, Climate Propaganda By Germany’s SRF Public Radio

Correction: Reader Fred informs that the SRF is not a German radio station, but instead belongs to Switzerland: “And yes, all people living in Switzerland are forced to pay around 300 US dollars a year for that crap, even if you never watch or listen the SRF […] it is just another leftwing propaganda machine.” […]

Crumbling 'Consensus': 500 Scientific Papers Published In 2016 Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarm

Crumbling ‘Consensus’: 500 Scientific Papers Published In 2016 Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarm

Climate science is supposed to be settled, right? We are told that there is an overwhelming agreement, or consensus, among scientists that most weather and climate changes that have occurred since the mid-20th century have been caused by human activity — our fossil fuel burning and CO2 emissions in particular.  We are told that natural mechanisms that […]

3 New Papers: Global Seas Now Rising About 2 Inches Per Century ... Claims Of 1 Meter Rise By 2100 'Sheer Nonsense'

3 New Papers: Global Seas Now Rising About 2 Inches Per Century … Claims Of 1 Meter Rise By 2100 ‘Sheer Nonsense’

According to the most highly-cited estimate of recent (1992 – 2011) polar ice sheet melt rates, the land ice on Greenland and Antarctica has been contributing to sea level rise at a rate of 0.59 mm/year in the modern era, which means the equivalent of 5.9 centimeters (2.3 inches) per century of sea level rise […]

German Geologist Thinks Policymakers Need To Take Geology 101 Before Entering Climate Discussion

Land area gains despite sea level rise: coastal areas have grown 13,500 sq km over past 30 years By geologist Dr. Sebastian Luning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt. (German text translated/edited by P Gosselin) On August 25, 2016 there was in Nature Climate Change a small wonder was observed. A team of scientist led by Gennadii […]

New Papers Confirm Sea Levels Aren't Rising Fast Enough -- Coastal Land Area Growing, Not Shrinking

New Papers Confirm Sea Levels Aren’t Rising Fast Enough — Coastal Land Area Growing, Not Shrinking

A year ago, several geologists (Kench et al., 2015) published a paper in the journal Geology that revealed a curious phenomenon occurring along island coasts in the tropical Pacific.  Despite some of the highest rates of sea level rise in the world in this region (over 5 mm/yr  on average since the 1950s), the total […]

30 Scientific Papers Reveal Inverse CO2 - Sea Level Signal:  As CO2 Rises, Sea Level Falls

30 Scientific Papers Reveal Inverse CO2 – Sea Level Signal: As CO2 Rises, Sea Level Falls

According to the IPCC (2013),  global sea levels rose by less than two-tenths of a meter (0.19 m) between 1901 and 2010.  Considering the scientific record of long-term sea level trends from locations across the globe, this small <0.2 m change in sea levels over the course of the last 110 years does not even […]

New Paper: Lower Arctic Sea Level Rise Estimated At Only 1.5 Millimeters Per Year!

A brand new paper is out on sea level, and guess what? The findings show that sea level is going nowhere fast and that in the Arctic it is rising only half as fast as the much IPCC ballyhooed satellite altimetry measured 3.3 mm/year and accelerating rise. Authors: Peter Limkilde Svendsen, Ole B. Andersen, Allan […]

1959 Paper Shows Most Warming Before 1945 ...Arctic Warmed 7.7°C, Sea Level Rose 8 mm/yr

1959 Paper Shows Most Warming Before 1945 …Arctic Warmed 7.7°C, Sea Level Rose 8 mm/yr

The following clearly shows a complete lack of correlation between CO2 and temperature. Most of the 20th century warming occurred before 1945, and clearly was linked to natural factors at time the planet was emerging from the Little Ice Age. ==================================== Explosive (Non-Anthropogenic) Warming in the Early 20th Century By Kenneth Richard As Figure 1 […]

Broken Altimetry? 225 Tide Gauges Show Sea Level Rising Only 1.48 mm Per Year …Less Than Half The Satellite-Claimed Rate!

Dave Burton of  SeaLevel.info site here deserves widespread, world-wide exposure. Hat-tip: Kenneth Richard The site allows user-friendly observation of sea level rise trends at locations across the world using spreadsheet data direct from NOAA and PSMSL, as it is designed to be similar to Paul Clark’s popular interactive temperature graph site (woodfortrees.org). Sea levels rising less than half as fast, no […]
