NOAA : Long Term Sea Level Rise Is Six Inches Per Century

Averages out to 1.64 millimetres per year. Hansen’s 3-5 metres by 2100 is off by a factor of 27 so far.

    Hansen predicted that the Westside Highway on Manhattan, would be underwater in 20 years.

    This was in 1988 or 1989.

      Strange that he never published any science with his ‘prediction’.

      Stranger still that the only person who heard him say it waited 20 years until he had a book to sell.

    Whoopee!!!! Another reason to believe in AGW and anything Hansen says ???? NOT

  3. PJB says:

    Seems to me that sea-level is a good indicator of global temperature. What with expansion effects and whatever amount of water is changed by glaciation/polar ice, it is good to know that we continue within the warm embrace of the Holocene optimum.

    Once that trend line starts to decline, I do not want to hide it, for mass migrations will have to commence, once the earth heads back towards its more common ice-age climate.

    • Mike Davis says:

      Equatorial Africa is the only region where humanity was able to continue its existence during the last glacial transition to maximum. The current lineage of humanity is all traced back to there about 60 thousand years ago.

      For the warmists reading this: I know you believe it was 10 thousand years ago according your belief in Creationism. So I stand corrected as that is a possibility in a fantasy world.

  4. Lazarus says:

    “Hansen’s 3-5 metres by 2100 is off by a factor of 27 so far.”

    It is dishonest to say this without supplying evidence to Hansen saying what the rise would be in only a tenth of that time or at least him stating the rise would be linear.

  5. I agree it smacks of scientific dishonesty to make such a claim that Hansen without a cite. The IPCC made no such claims. In general the rise in sea level is tracking at the upper range of predictions. A good summary WITH peer reviewed citations is here: http://www.skepticalscience.com/sea-level-rise-predictions.htm

    20 cm is 7.87 inches. right?
