Justin Gillis : Turning A Minnow Into A Great White Shark

Nature News reported this week

The combined contribution from heating of the oceans, which makes the water expand, along with melting of ice caps and glaciers, is estimated to be 1.1 millimetres per year

That works out to less than four inches of sea level rise by the year 2100.

Undaunted by rational thought, mathematics or journalistic integrity – Justin Gillis predicts more than seventy two inches of sea level rise this century.

many scientists now say that sea level is likely to rise perhaps three feet by 2100 — an increase that, should it come to pass, would pose a threat to coastal regions the world over.

And the calculations suggest that the rise could conceivably exceed six feet, which would put thousands of square miles of the American coastline under water and would probably displace tens of millions of people in Asia.

Justin caught a minnow, and reported it as a Great White Shark.

    Only a CAGWer would come up with the DOT ONE figure

    They don’t sound very sure of their “science”now, don’t they?

    they have no idea how much water that really is……………..

    It’s more than 7 cubic kilometers!!

    I thought an APOD from last week gave a good perspective of the amount of water on Earth:
