One of the claims of global warming alarmists is that anthropogenic global warming is causing the worlds Sea Level to rising and this rise will soon drown major cities such as New York. While some former residents of New York may not see this as necessarily a bad thing others would disagree. As someone who has lived by the sea shore for the last 50 years I often wondered why none of this sea level rise has been apparent where I live? Many 100 year old structures built right at the waters edge still seem to be doing just fine. Of course anecdotal evidence like this is of minimum value in this type of debate.
However one of the worlds foremost experts on sea level change Dr. Niles-Alex Morner Head of The Paleogeophysics and Geodynamics Department at the University of Stockholm and past President of the INQUA Commission on Sea Level Change has come to a similar conclusion.
If you still believe in man caused Global Warming you need to read the interview of Dr. Morner published in Economics. The main points of the article are as follows:
1. Sea Level varies over time with the Earth’s temperature. However from 1850 till now no measurable trend has been found. The graph of sea level for the last 150+ years is flat.
2. Modern Satellite Altimetey (which is the most accurate measure) also shows no increase in sea level.
3. IPCC Claims of raising sea levels are based on a fraud. This was accomplished by cherry picking tide measurements from instruments that were located on land that was known to be sinking. Specifically instruments in Holland and Hong Kong were placed on land undergoing substantial subsidence.
4. A key peace of high profile photographic evidence used by the media to depict sea level rise showed a before and after of very low lying island in the Maldives that supported one lone tree. The tree is now gone allegedly because of sea level rise. In reality the tree was torn down by a group of Australian Global Warming Activists.
