They Never Manipulate Data

What is glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA), and why do you correct for it?

since the ocean basins are getting larger due to GIA, this will reduce by a very small amount the relative sea level rise that is seen along the coasts.

the GIA correction has the effect of increasing previous estimates of the global mean sea level rate by 0.3 mm/yr.

Why on Earth would you report a number above the observed sea level? This is beyond asinine. If they keep doing this, their data will eventually show sea level higher than the West Side Highway in New York, while people will still be driving their cars there.

It is the financial equivalent of adding your withholding tax to your net income.

    It is a VALUE added Adjustment to make the numbers look better. We would not want the poor dears to feel bad about not finding anything to be concerned about! Would we? (Little Devil here)

    Next adjustment will be needed for NIVDA: New Island Volume Displacement Adjustment

    Like the new island growing south of the big island in Hawaii. Wiki: Loihi Seamount

    “Loihi Seamount is an active undersea volcano located around 35 km (22 mi) off the southeast coast of the island of Hawai?i[6] about 975 m (3,000 ft) below sea level. It lies on the flank of Mauna Loa, the largest shield volcano on Earth. Loihi means “long” in Hawaiian.[4]

    Loihi Seamount is the newest volcano in the Hawaiian-Emperor seamount chain, a string of volcanoes that stretches over 5,800 km (3,600 mi) northwest of Loihi and the island of Hawai?i. Unlike most active volcanoes in the Pacific Ocean that make up the active plate margins on the Pacific Ring of Fire, Loihi and the other volcanoes of the Hawaiian-Emperor seamount chain are hotspot volcanoes and formed well away from the nearest plate boundary. Volcanoes in the Hawaiian Islands arise from the Hawai?i hotspot, and as the youngest volcano in the chain, Loihi is the only Hawaiian volcano in the deep submarine preshield stage of development.

    Loihi began forming around 400,000 years ago and is expected to begin emerging above sea level about 10,000–100,000 years from now. At its summit, Loihi Seamount stands more than 3,000 m (10,000 ft) above the seafloor, making it taller than Mount St. Helens was before its catastrophic 1980 eruption. The summit is currently 975 m (3,000 ft) below sea level. A diverse microbial community resides around Loihi’s many hydrothermal vents.”

    And then Hansen would be proven right and Tony Dunce-y-man will have to concoct another labyrinthine defense and threaten to foist that on us.

    NEWSFLASH!!!

    “Climate Secret: NSF Quietly Closes Out Inspector General Investigation with Complete Vindication of Michael Mann”

      Yes, Romm is completely delusional…

      “Two things we know with extremely high confidence:

      1 Recent warming is unprecedented in magnitude and speed and cause (so the temperature history looks like a Hockey Stick).

      2 Michael Mann, the lead author on the original Hockey Stick paper, is one of the nation’s top climatologists and a source of first-rate analysis.”

      And this assclown is considered by many to be an expert on climate. The MWP just never happened. Repeat the lie often enough…

    This is what happens when “scientists” start with the conclusion and work backwards through the scientific process
