Scientific Bullshite Deepest In At Least 2,100 Years

Global warming alert as sea level rise said to be fastest rate for 2,100 years

Global warming is causing sea levels to rise at a faster rate today than at any time in the past 2,100 years, according to new research.

Scientists used the fossils left by tiny marine animals to record two millennia of sea levels along the US Atlantic coast.

They found a pattern of sea level change that was consistent with warming and cooling climate.

Blaming this on CO2 is complete crap. Sea level rise along the East coast has been fixed for 100 years. In New England there is little to no sea level rise over the last 40 years. Sea level on the US Pacific Coast is not rising at all.

If CO2 was the cause, we would have expected to see a sharp rise after 1950, when atmospheric CO2 began to rise quickly. By contrast, sea level rise rates along the Atlantic coast have slowed since 1950.

Wilmington, North Carolina

Atlantic City, NJ – sea level rose faster prior to 1950

Fort Pulaski, Georgia – sea level rose faster prior to 1950

Annapolis, MD

Eastport, Maine

Portland, Maine

Bar Harbor, Maine

There aren’t any tide gauges in New Hampshire. Boston shows that sea level rose much faster prior to 1950 than it has since.

Boston, Mass

Martha’s Vineyard rose faster prior to 1970.

Martha’s Vineyard, Mass

Newport, Rhode Island rose faster prior to 1950

Newport, Rhode Island

Providence, Rhode Island has not accelerated.

Providence, Rhode Island

New London, CT shows no increase in rise rates.

New London, CT

Bridgeport, CT rose faster prior to 1970

Bridgeport, CT

New York rise rates haven’t changed for 150 years. They are mainly due to land sinking from groundwater pumping.

  1. “At the current rate of increase, we expect the Maldives to disappear under a pile of bullshit 9 miles (14,500m) deep within a decade. Other effects of catastrophic bullshit deepening include pasty New Yorkers not getting tans, fish in Denver tasting like crap, and Philadelphia continuing to smell terrible.”

    You have a different version of Sim Planet. The one they use has had all the “Proper” Al-Gore-Rhythms used for the extrapolated Super Exponentially Robust results.

  3. Bill says:

    What they are really saying is that sea level has risen faster over the past century or so, not the past 40 years.
    Your charts certainly dont refute that.

    However I admit I see no point in doing their analysis for one small stretch of coasttline – even if they did it correctly.

      Hmm, that’s not the impression I get when they blather about an increasing rate of change. It could be that’s what they really meant when they say “drastically increasing rate of sea-level rise”

      Of course, Steve’s charts do demonstrably refute that assertion….. but then….. so do most other sea level charts.

    • If that is the case, then it isn’t due to CO2.

    There has already been a self-selected divide created between facts and faux fuckery, no fence sitters being left. It’s war, now. Rallying existing troops is fine, but it be high time to learn much more of the nature of thine enemy. Why don’t they accede defeat if only a dork warrior or two is required to be sacrificed and outcast?

    Why are you throwing facts at a cult?

  5. Jimbo says:

    We are doomed! 😦
    “It is essential that investigations continue to address why this worldwide-temperature increase has not produced acceleration of global sea level over the past 100 years, and indeed why global sea level has possibly decelerated for at least the last 80 years.”

    “Unprecedented Sea Level Rise” My favorite!

    I know they didn’t use the exact words but they show up often enough. Math, it can be your friend or enemy depending on your willingness to accept facts:

    The sea level has risen about 130 meters over the last 22,000 years or so.

    130 meters equals 130,000 millimeters.
    130,000 millimeters divided by 22,000 years equals 5.91 millimeters per year.

    According to the article “From the late 19th century onwards, sea levels had risen by an average of more than two millimetres a year, the steepest rate for 2,100 years.”

    That means that it is currently rising at a rate of about 33% – 40% of what it has averaged over the last 22,000 years. Yep. We’re all going to die.

    On a brighter note, Jeanne Tripplehorn looked great in Waterworld.

    “Blaming this on CO2 is complete crap. Sea level rise along the East coast has been fixed for 100 years. In New England there is little to no sea level rise over the last 40 years. Sea level on the US Pacific Coast is not rising at all.

    Obviously, you haven’t made adequate “adjustments” to your data. 🙂
