Putting the Brakes on Satellite Acceleration

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach I discussed acceleration in the tide gauge records in a previous post. However, people are also claiming that either there is acceleration in the satellite record or there will soon be acceleration. So I thought I’d take a look at the satellite-measured sea level question. First, here’s the satellite data:…

Who’s Afraid of Sea-Level Acceleration?

by Joe Born This is kind of a coda to Willis Eschenbach’s recent post about sea-level rise. In that post Mr. Eschenbach argued against confidence in the recently observed accelerations’ reality. His post was characteristically compelling. But there’s a sense in which the question of whether apparent acceleration is real seems secondary to whether the…
