New York Times Caught With Their Knickers Down

Joe from Pickin’ Cherries posted these pictures of Waikiki Beach in 1930 and now. The beach looks bigger now than it did 80 years ago.

  1. The beach actually looks bigger after 80 years…

    Look at the pink building on the left. While there has been no exact tide calibration, it’s as obvious as day that the sea has not risen. If anything, the sea level has dropped! What absolute bunk is the baloney that they are spewing about sea level rise. A comment I did on the question “how will we measure the sea level if Envisat is down?”:

    Oh yeah, a person said “go to the beach!”

    No, that won’t work. Don’t believe your own eyes. “You’ve got lying eyes” when it comes to sea level. We need enhanced satellite imaging and fourth generation data processing, and also if we can finally get a moon base we should observe sea levels from there as well.

    There’s a 0.7 meter tide in Honolulu and the beach shelves quite gradually – there could be a significant visual impact as a result.

    The NY Times has proved that the development of Waikiki Beach has been tremendous since 1930.

    Oh no! The fools! All of those buildings are doomed! It is only a matter of time.

  6. I’d like to see the beach and pink building at high tide as the best estimate of any form of encroachment. But even so, the global averaged sea level rise over that period would have been less than 14cm.

      Excellent idea, Will. Crowd source it, or whatever. Get various time-stamped photos at high tide. We don’t know the tide of the 1930 shot, but…

    NOAA updated tide record shows Honolulu SLR at 1.42mm last year. the 102 year trend was 1.50mm/yr. average less than 6 inches per century.
