Say, About That Sea Level Rise Meme…..

The climate alarmists have been yammering on about globull warming killing us all as it raises the oceans – a notion that Al Gore must disagree with, considering his purchase of a McMansion right near the Pacific – even though sea level rise has being going on since the end of the last Ice Age. Of course, in Climate Alarmist World, the only thing that matters is a section of dates, never older than 1850, and usually only after 1980. That meme has been rather destroyed

Global warming advocates say rising sea levels will soon drown Venice. But a top scientist says they’re full of hot air — and he says he’s got the data to prove it.

In a new scientific paper, Nils-Axel Morner, former emeritus head of the paleogeophysics and geodynamics department at Stockholm University in Sweden, says that observational records from around the world — locations like the Maldives, Bangladesh, India, Tuvalu and Vanuatu — show the sea level isn’t rising at all.

Morner’s research, revealed Monday at the fourth International Conference on Climate Change, demonstrates that there is no “alarming sea level rise” across the globe, and it says a U.N. report warning of coastal cities being deluged by rising waters from melting polar ice caps “is utterly wrong.”

Of course, he’ll be assaulted by the alarmists as a shill for Big Oil or something. That is the way it works in Liberal World. Attack the messenger, not rebut the message.

“The tiger of global warming has lost its teeth. Maybe it’s not even a real tiger any more. Maybe it is a blown-up dummy,” Morner said at the conference.

For his paper, Morner looked at the sea-level changes in major metropolitan cities around the globe — including Venice, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Mumbai, as well as islands such as the Maldives. A total of 159 stations were used for the research. His study showed that there was a maximum of 3 millimeters of sea level rise in some locales around the world, and many coastal cities showed no rise at all.

This is contrary to the Nobel Prize-winning fourth report of the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which indicated in 2007 that Bangladesh was “doomed” because of rising tide levels prompted by man-made global warming.

“The sea is not rising there,” Morner said. “It is stable.”

The difference, he said, is one of theory vs. reality.

The difference is one of computer models and hysteria vs. direct observation and actual data.

Now, even if there was sea rise happening, it still wouldn’t prove anthropogenic global warming. The natural world does what the natural world wants to.
