New study confirms that oceans are rising quicker:

More random numbers.

If you look at the acrtual study they are talking about the graphs show no real acceleration.

That projection agrees perfectly with climate models used in the latest International Panel on Climate Change report, which show sea level rise to be between 52 and 98 centimeters by 2100

Somewhere between 52 and 98 is perfection, eh?


Think ITN is right. More random numbers.

The graphs show a rise of about 1.5mm/yr.

That's 6 inches by 2100 over the 2000 level. Or 5 inches over now.

It's not possible to measure sea level to this kind of accuracy. There is no valid reference point for it.

The only reference points for a local sea level is a land station (such as a tide station) or the reference beacon located at Boulder, CO for the satellite system.

Both are located on land. Land moves. It rises, it sinks, it moves from side to side, etc.

Remember when I poked into it I discovered that NASA was suddenly claiming that the Earth's mantle was shrinking (with no evidence) so they added "ocean rise" to make up for this shrinking.

In fact the rise of the oceans hadn't changed at all since the civil war unless is has been reducing since that was the end of the little ice age and the time that the Greenland glaciers started shrinking back to their original bases.

After the civil war the oceans were rising 1 mm per year. NASA has since told us that the mantle is shrinking 1 mm per year so IF the 1.5 mm "rise" is accurate it means that in fact the sea levels have slowed their rise as one would expect since all of the low latitude glaciers have gone back pretty much to their original positions.

Why would the mantle shrink? Does NASA say?
