sea level

  • Alarmists feverish over sea levels

    It seems that Greens will make up just about any scary scenario they can hoodwink people with so that they can extend their own power and influence over an ignorant society. This is nothing new. “The sky is falling!” — the story of Chicken Little — goes back at least 25 centures, we are told. Facts matter little to these propagandists, who often believe their own lies after repeating them so often. But the truth is that sea level rise — a natural phenomenon — has slowed of late and poses little or no threat to any current land mass on the planet.

  • History falsifies climate alarmist sea level claims

    Climate alarmists may be likened unto those who yell “fire” in a crowded theatre when there is no fire at all. Robert Endlich herein traces the history of sea level change from the Wisconsin Ice Age of 18,000 years ago through to Roman and medieval times and to the modern era. He remarks that sea level is unlikely to be affected in response to tax policies that make energy more expensive and economies less roi

  • Sea-coasting to bankruptcy

    Dr. Nils-Axel Morner, the former chair of the Paleogeophysics and Geodynamics department at Stockholm University in Sweden, acknowledges that “sea level was indeed rising from, let us say, 1850 to 1930-40. And that rise had a rate in the order of 1 millimeter per year (mm/y)…. A recent paper reviewed by CO2 Science finds that sea levels have risen from 2002-2011 at a rate of only 1.7 mm/y over the past 110 years, the equivalent of 6.7 inches per century. This is close to Dr. Morner’s assertion that, at most, there has been a rate of increase that tops out at 1.1 mm/y. The review concluded that there is no evidence of any human influence on sea levels.
