Well, maybe we’ll be able to offer either confirmation or a different perspective, but Professor Nils-Axel Morner is making some real noise about the sea-levels. Dr. Morner actually provided me with the motivation to do the tidal gauge probe.
In case you’ve missed it Dr. Morner has concluded, there was no rise in sea level in the Indian Ocean. Referring to the myth of sea level rise as the “Greatest Lie Ever Told” in a booklet, Professor Morner said ignorance was terrible but exaggeration was dangerous. “Computer modeling by persons not having visited the sites in question is not good enough.”
He goes on to state, “There is no ongoing rise in the sea level at all and since 1970, it fell by about 20 cm and has remained quite stable for the last 30 to 40 years.” The team had investigated several different shore environments, including open coasts, rock cut platforms, sandy shores in erosion and such an overwhelming mass and quality of observational facts must outdo idle talk, he said, with reference to the IPCC reports.
This would be consistent with Envisat’s observations for the last 5 1/2 years.
You can read more about it here. The wheels have fell of the CAGW wagon. More evidence that reality trumps modeling. To review, the worlds foremost expert in sea level, Dr. Morner, says the sea levels aren’t rising. Temps have refused to correlate with CO2 with one of the recognized databases showing a slight 14 year linear decline in the global anomaly. The world’s worst floods have all have happened over 35 years ago. ACE values are considerably lower than in the past. And, we’ve shown how there isn’t any detectable loss of snow extent both here and here, in fact, we’ve shown were if anything, its increasing. There are even indications that the arctic MYI may be on the rise.
What was it, again, that we’re so afraid of? Oh, yeh, human prosperity.
