Smoking Gun That The NRC Sea Level Report Is Garbage

Yesterday the National Research Council told us that sea level was rising very quickly in California, and would rise one foot over the next twenty years.

Sea level to rise higher in California due to global warming, geology

As the world continues to warm from climate change, most of California — including San Francisco Bay and Monterey Bay — will see a greater rise in sea level than other parts of the planet, according to a prominent national study released Friday.

San Francisco Bay already has risen roughly 7 inches in the past 100 years, as measured by the tidal gauge at Fort Point, under the Golden Gate Bridge.

No mention that the other tide gauge in San Francisco Bay shows no sea level rise, or that the seven inches of rise all occurred before 1980.

Ocean levels south of Humboldt County will rise up to 1 foot in the next 20 years, 2 feet by 2050, and up to 5 feet by 2100, the study showed.

The estimates in Friday’s report were largely in line with other estimates from scientists in recent years at the U.S. Geological Survey, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and other research bodies.

On the same day, the US Geological Survey published a paper showing that sea level rose more slowly in California than the global average, between 1950 and 2009 .

Bottom line is that the NRC report is complete garbage, unless an asteroid hits the Greenland Ice Sheet.

CU Satellite data shows that global sea level rise rates have dropped by almost 50% over the last seven years.

Neither tide gauge in San Francisco Bay shows any sea level rise for the past thirty years. The Alameda tide gauge shows no sea level rise for 50 years.

    Steve: what is the URL for the USGS report, please?

  2. Les Johnson says:

    Sorry Steve. that is the problem with living in North Africa. Not all the pictures or links download here. The first time I only got the first two graphics.

    The usual bucketload of BS.

    I’m not a sea riseologist, and I don’t play one on TV. However, I am a common senseologist. Since water seeks it’s own level, how in the hell can the sea rise more in San Francisco, than in Capetown? or anywhere else? This claim reeks of wet manure.

    Fort Point. I think I have a postcard from there bearing the legend ‘Surfrancisco”. On the east side of it a car park has been reclaimed from the sea sometime in the last 100 years. It is protected from erosion by the aforementioned surf by a lot of large boulders. On the west side of Fort Point a large iconic orange-coloured structure bears down on the rock-head. But none of this could possibly be having any effect on the tide-gauge – could it?
