Renowned Sea Level Expert: "NO TRACES OF A PRESENT RISE IN SEA LEVEL; On The Contrary: Full Stability"

Renowned Sea Level Expert: “NO TRACES OF A PRESENT RISE IN SEA LEVEL; On The Contrary: Full Stability”

A new paper by renowned Swedish sea level expert Prof. Axel Mörmer published in the International Journal of Earth & Environmental Sciences dumps lots of cold water on the premise that today’s sea level rise is caused by man and is unusual. Mörner’s paper looks back at the last 500 years of sea level rise […]

Reality vs. Theory: Scientists Affirm ‘Recent Lack Of Any Detectable Acceleration’ In Sea Level Rise

Scientists: ‘Loud Divergence Between Sea Level Reality And Climate Change Theory’ Global Sea Level ‘Acceleration’ Just 0.002 mm/year² According to peer-reviewed, “consensus” climate science, anthropogenic CO2 emissions are the cause of Arctic sea ice decline.  In fact, peer-reviewed, “consensus” climate science indicates the causal relationship is so direct and so linear that it can be said with […]

Past Sea Levels Rose 4-6 Meters Per Century, Shorelines Retreated 40 Meters Per Year...Without CO2 Flux

Past Sea Levels Rose 4-6 Meters Per Century, Shorelines Retreated 40 Meters Per Year…Without CO2 Flux

New Paper: Modern Sea Levels Rising   20-30 Times Slower Than The Past Currently, sea levels are “believed to be” rising at a rate of 1.7-1.8 millimeters/year. This modern rate  –  just 0.17-0.18 of a meter per century – has remained relatively unchanged from the overall 20th century average, and there has been no statistically significant acceleration in […]

Since 1993, Greenland's Ice Sheet Melt Has Added Just 0.39 Of A Centimeter To Global Sea Levels

Since 1993, Greenland’s Ice Sheet Melt Has Added Just 0.39 Of A Centimeter To Global Sea Levels

Exposing ‘Staggering’ Ice Sheet Melt Deceptions In recent months, two new papers published in The Cryosphere have provided a condensed summary of the ice-melt and sea-level-rise consequences of global warming for the Arctic region. 1.  Between 1900 and 2010, the Greenland Ice Sheet (GIS) has melted so extensively and so rapidly that the GIS ice-melt contribution […]

Sea Level Rise At German Coast Slowing, Contradicting German DWD Weather Service Hysteria

Manfred Knake here at the European Institute For Climate And Energy (EIKE) writes that the sea level at the German coasts is not rising as fast as Germany’s DWD national weather service would like the public to believe it is. lately press releases related to climate by the DWD have been bordering on hysteria. For […]

Euopean Climate Institute EIKE Says Antarctica Ice Calving “Totally Normal”, Natural Causes

The Vice President of the Germany-based European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) Michael Limburg wrote that the recent ice chunk breaking off the Antarctic ice shelf has everything to do with natural cyclic calving, and that the media reporting has been mostly alarmist hype. EIKE writes: Antarctic ice shelf breaking is a totally normal […]

Already 285 Scientific Papers Published In 2017 Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarm

A Growing Volume Of Evidence Undercuts ‘Consensus’ Science During the first 6 months of 2017, 285 scientific papers have already been published that cast doubt on the position that anthropogenic CO2 emissions function as the climate’s fundamental control knob…or that otherwise question the efficacy of climate models or the related “consensus” positions commonly endorsed by […]

Sea Levels Are Stable To Falling At About Half Of The World's Tide Gauges

Sea Levels Are Stable To Falling At About Half Of The World’s Tide Gauges

Is Sea Level Rise ‘Global’ If Roughly 50% Of Gauges Show Stable To Falling Sea Levels? Image from  Mörner, 2017 A few years ago, a comprehensive analysis of selection bias in tide gauge measurements between 1807-2010 indicated that (a) sea levels are only rising at a rate of about 1 mm/yr (as of 2010), and […]

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 […]

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.” […]
