Current climate model simulations overestimate future sea-level rise

The current climate model simulations, which do not take ocean eddies into account, project that the ocean temperatures around Antarctica are increasing under climate change. The new high-resolution simulation shows…

Changes in ocean chemistry show how sea level affects global carbon cycle

“The new type of information we can read from the stable strontium isotopes now allows us to take a close look at the business end of the global carbon cycle,…

Sea Level and the Jersey Shore

The Jersey Shore does not need to look to the future to see pending disaster – these communities are already at existential risk from the sea levels of today.

Climate adaptation sense. Part III: Dynamic Adaptation Policy Pathways

Best practice is to use 2 to 3 different teams with different perspectives/expertise in generating scenarios and evaluating scenarios of the other teams. I have been involved in three projects…

Climate adaptation follies. Part II: scenarios of future sea level rise

Global sea level rise projections provide a basis for projecting local sea level rise, such as for the New Jersey coast. The analysis in this section places the projections provided…

Kivalina: A Case Study of How Media & Politics Mangle Objective Climate Science!

Kivalina and Newtok don’t exemplify climate crises. Kivalina and Newtok are iconic examples of how the media and governments have ignored the injustices suffered by native peoples, then use their…

New Study: Sea Level Rise Rates The Same Since 1958 As They Were For All Of 1900-2018

A new analysis of global sea level rise rates concludes the rising trend was 1.56 mm/yr−¹ from 1900-2018. This is the same rate as for 1958-2014 (1.5 mm/yr−¹), indicating there…

Huge Database Of Studies Documenting Meters-Higher Mid-Holocene Sea Levels Swells Again In 2020

During the Mid-Holocene sea surface temperatures were also considerably warmer despite CO2 levels only reaching ~265 ppm. Yet at that time sea levels were about 2 or more meters higher…

You can write something like that, but it has nothing in the least to do with science.

Alarmism Dies In The Maldives: 97% Of 186 Island Coasts Have Grown (59%) Or Not Changed (38%) Since 2005

Despite sea level rise, a 2019 global analysis (Duvat, 2019) found 89% of 709 island coasts have been either stable or growing in size in recent decades. A new Maldives-only…

The Conversation: How do we Protect Venice from Flooding and Sea Level Rise?

According to The Conversation, if we don’t take urgent action, climate change could cause flooding to occur in the ancient Italian city of Venice.

Preparing the Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich Satellite for Launch

A U.S.-European partnership, the Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich spacecraft will begin a five-and-a-half-year prime mission to collect the most accurate data yet on global sea level and how our oceans are…

Sea level rise and Antarctica

Why a dramatic acceleration in sea level? It’s based primarily on dire models, typically presented to coastal planning commissions as ‘best science’, suggesting increasing ice instability and Antarctica ice sheet…

A lullaby in memory of the late Professor Nils-Axel Mörner

“Speaking of Bob Carter [the late geologist and friend of scientific truth], I still use Lord Monckton’s Bob Carter’s Peal as the ringtone for my cellphone. It is a lovely…

Professor Nils-Axel Mörner, 1938-2020

Professor Nils-Axel Mörner, who died on Friday October 16 aged 83 after a short illness, knew more about sea level than did Poseidon himself. He wrote more than 650 papers…

Prince William demonstrating Prince Charles and Prince Harry are not the only woke British Royal Climate Change Hardliners.

Sentinel-6 and Sea Level Rise

Satalt simply does not correspond with the BEST SLR tide gauge measurements by a factor of about 1.5x. That is not rounding error; it is a big climate data problem.

Claim: Sea level rise from ice sheets track worst-case climate change scenario

Ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica whose melting rates are rapidly increasing have raised the global sea level by 1.8cm since the 1990s, and are matching the Intergovernmental Panel on…

Study: 1970s Dam Construction Paused Global Warming Sea Level Rise

A JPL led study has suggested construction of water reservoirs in the 1970s held back so much water from running into the sea it paused sea level rise.
