From the Scientific Urban Legend Department: ‘AGW Sea Level Rise Made Sandy More Destructive’

Guest essay by Kip Hansen, St Thomas, USVI The Claim: Even if research shows that Hurricane Sandy was not “caused” by Global Warming, it is certain that sea level rise caused by anthropogenic global warming increased the resultant destruction from Sandy’s storm surge. Example: “ … sea levels continue to rise due to global warming.…

Is Sea Level Rise Accelerating?

Guest post by Paul Homewood     It is generally accepted that sea levels increased during the 20thC at a rate of about 185mm or about 7”. Furthermore studies suggest that there was no acceleration in this rate during that time. One of the best known studies was by Bruce Douglas, who produced the above…

Bombshell conclusion – new peer reviewed analysis: “worldwide-temperature increase has not produced acceleration of global sea level over the past 100 years”

The paper is currently in press at the Journal of Coastal Research and is provided with open access to the full publication. The results are stunning for their contradiction to AGW theories which suggest global warming would accelerate sea level rise during the last century. “Our first analysis determined the acceleration, a2, for each of…
