If You Grew As A Child, That Must Mean You Are Growing Now

This blog has been plagued by someone commenting under the name “Actual Skeptic” who believes that sea level rise in the past proves that it is currently happening.

Perhaps this graph of human growth can help him out.

This person would argue that the graph proves the 40 year old is still growing.

      Core samples, tide gauge readings, and, most recently, satellite measurements tell us that over the past century, the Global Mean Sea Level (GMSL) has risen by 4 to 8 inches (10 to 20 centimeters). However, the annual rate of rise over the past 20 years has been 0.13 inches (3.2 millimeters) a year, roughly twice the average speed of the preceding 80 years.

      Over the past century, the burning of fossil fuels and other human and natural activities has released enormous amounts of heat-trapping gases into the atmosphere. These emissions have caused the Earth’s surface temperature to rise, and the oceans absorb about 80 percent of this additional heat. –National Geographic

    Sea levels have been rising since the end of the Younger Dryas glaciation. But we’re now approaching the end of the current interglacial period (interglacials last an average of 11,500 years). As temperatures start to decline and the next glaciation begins, sea levels will decline.

    The concocted idea that man-made CO2 is causing the polar and Greenland ice caps to melt ranks alongside the Greek theory of Phlogiston. Unfortunately, the world is full of gullible rubes (some called “scientists”) who actually believe mankind is capable of changing the earth’s climate. Despite evidence to the contrary, they continue to believe that a trace atmospheric gas can overwhelm the impact of that great yellow ball in the sky.

      Kirk:
      The “Tipping” Point happened about 5,000 years ago. We are only waiting for temperatures to decrease below the point where sea level starts to lower again with increased glaciation. 🙂 That may well be happening as we speak, but our Brilliant scientists have distorted reality until we do not know.

    Nice bit of cherry-picking Steve. You should have plotted another 2-3 decades onto that graph. People start to shrink when they get older. I’m late 60s and have lost about 1.5 inches in height from my maximum at 6 foot even though no skeletal problems. Height is sorta like temperature and sea level, it varies in both directions given sufficient time.

    I’m guessing they are still growing. Still living in the basement.

    Spiritually we don’t stop growing. The wise men never are the young ones. That’s why it is nearly impossible to indoctrinate an older person. You have to get them when they are young. All dictators know this. That’s why they want, no they must control the education systeem.
