Team Romm – Proving Again That They Are Morons

Rebecca is trying to get her audience hysterical about “climate change” and massive sea level rise, so she prints a graph which shows that sea level rise rates have been unchanging and slow over the past century – at two mm/year.

Do you have to prove that your brain is barely functional in order to write or comment at Romm’s site?

Note that the graph shows that sea level rise has slowed since 1960.

    at two mm/year.

    That’s about 4 inches in my life time….and I’ve lived my life on this same rock
    I don’t know where the sea has risen 4 inches….but it didn’t here

    Do these people seriously believe that anything in nature is perfectly constant? Do they seriously believe they can do anything about it, one way or the other?

    Why only 23 tide gauge records?

    • suyts says:

      The tidal gauge data set is the worst. I looked at it for several months trying to ascertain a reasonable global sea level anomaly and check the recent rate of rise for the last 20-30 years. It can’t be done, not in a valid manner anyway. One has to make to many “determinations” and judgements. Any statement made from tidal gauges would be inherently biased. The discontinuities and poor global coverage don’t allow for such a statement. This graphic shown by the lunatics is simplistic at best. Disingenuous at worst.

  4. I live by the ocean and used to play in the rock pools all the time and 40 years later the same rock pools are there, no difference I can detect at high tide. So it hasn’t happened in my area either. Maybe somewhere else, perhaps.

  5. Eric Simpson says:

    I don’t know if VA has nailed it on this, but as I’ve said over and over again, there’s been no sea level rise. None. Not any. Why don’t the libnuts stop playing games. You go to the ocean and you see that the ocean and the beach is the same as it’s ever been, whether you be in Australia, CA or Maine. Forget the data, and the myriad adjustments. Adjustments for what? It’s bunk. The data is bullshit.

  6. slimething says:

    Photographs and rock formations have not yet passed peer review to verify their accuracy.

  7. In all fairness the measured sea level rise over the last 100 years has been so tiny that none of us would have been able to notice it anyway, since we’re talking about cm’s.

    I just did a little post on the sea level this morning. http://suyts.wordpress.com/2012/06/10/sea-level-satellites-need-further-adjustments/

    Even if you believe the satellite data, (the actions with Envisat cause me to disbelieve them) Using CU’s conflation of data sets, we see that Topex had a rate of rise at 3.11 mm for 9 years. We see Jason I had a rate of rise of 2mm/yr for the next 7.5 years, and we see that Jason II had a rate of rise at 1.25mm/yr for the next 3.5 years.

    Topex had 28 mm total rise, Jason I for the next period had 15mm, and Jason II had a total of 4.375. So a total of 47.375mm/20yrs. 2.37mm/yr. And that’s if you believe their BS. (calcs didn’t include GIA or barometer adjustments but they did the seasonal adjustments.)

    Plymouth Rock, still not wet.

    The identical granite Rock, upon which the sea-wearied Pilgrims from the Mayflower first impressed their footsteps, has never been a subject of doubtful designation. The fact of its identity has been transmitted from father to son, particularly in the instance of Elder Faunce and his father, as would be the richest inheritance, by unquestionable tradition. About the year 1741, it was represented to Elder Faunce that a wharf was to be erected over the rock, which impressed his mind with deep concern, and excited a strong desire to take a last farewell of the cherished object. He was then ninety-five years old, and resided three miles from the place. A chair was procured, and the venerable man conveyed to the shore, where a number of the inhabitants were assembled to witness the patriarch’s benediction. Having pointed out the rock directly under the bank of Cole’s Hill, which his father had assured him was that, which had received the footsteps of our fathers on their first arrival, and which should be perpetuated to posterity, he bedewed it with his tears and bid to it an everlasting adieu.

    1774. – The inhabitants of the town [Plymouth], animated by the glorious spirit of liberty which pervaded the Province, and mindful of the precious relic of our forefathers, resolved to consecrate the rock on which they landed to the shrine of liberty. Col. Theophilus Cotton, and a large number of the inhabitants assembled, with about 20 yoke of oxen, for the purpose of its removal. The rock was elevated from its bed by means of large screws; and in attempting to mount it on the carriage, it split asunder, without any violence. As no one had observed a flaw, the circumstance occasioned some surprise. It is not strange that some of the patriots of the day should be disposed to indulge a little in superstition, when in favor of their good cause. The separation of the rock was construed to be ominous of a division of the British Empire. The question was now to be decided whether both parts should be removed, and being decided in the negative, the bottom part was dropped again into its original bed, where it still remains, a few inches above the surface of the earth, at the head of the wharf.

    What would he make of this, I wonder:
    “A curious phenomenon was observed at Rochester, New York, shortly after daybreak, when a heavy cloud obscured the sun, suddenly turning day into night. Simultaneously the water of Lake Ontario receded forty to a hundred feet, later returning to far above the ordinary waterline.”

    Does Joe Romm read this blog?

  12. Her confusion very probably stems from the likely fact that she can’t tell 2mm from 256mm. Scientists speculate that this might come down to her mating decisions.
