Even The Guardian said the headline was hype.
Report’s author says many media outlets have misinterpreted the science by conflating sea-level rise with climate change
Well, that “scientific evidence” seems to be little more than vacuous opinion from “The Conversation” in Australia. We covered the topic last year, but here is another look.

Almost 25-years of meticulous data gathered by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology displays no discernible sea-level rise for Solomon Islands and Nauru. See the two graphs below.

There are numerous stories in mainstream media going back 15-years regarding the urgent plight and impending doom of these islands in particular.
Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology is well known for adjusting data to suit their AGW agenda; however, sea-level data is difficult to adjust and is primarily adjusted for Barometric
Pressure (very little wriggle room).
How much money would you give the Solomon Islands and Nauru for climate-change mitigation?
The Australian Government, despite its own data, already spends tens of millions through the ‘Pacific Adaptation Strategy Assistance Program’ and the ‘Green Climate Fund’.
Taxpayers should be up in arms and increasingly they are as new political voices emerge and take votes from the major parties.
