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…
