Data and Station Information for NEW YORK ( THE BATTERY)

On hundred fifty years of tide gauge measurements in lower Manhattan, tell us that humans neither accelerate nor slow the rise of the seas.

    Most of the sea-level rise at The Battery is due to the land sinking, rather than the sea rising. Of the +2.82 mm/yr sea-level trend seen at The Battery, Peltier (VM2) estimates that 1.67 mm/yr is due to the land sinking.

    Hanson the Hanster can fix that chart to show that man is guilty as sin. He could make it spell Sin for that matter.

  3. Steve Steve Steve… what you fail to appreciate is that the land around Lower Manhattan is rising. That’s why it’s called “Lower” Manhattan. (It’s an irony thing.) And this rise is exactly coincidentally keeping pace with ever accelerating sea levels.

    Of course you might consider this to be a remarkable coincidence, but Climate Science is full of remarkable coincidences.

    Meanwhile over on the other coast, “No Surfer Under The Age Of 30 Has Ever Seen Any Sea Level Rise In California”

    I found this comment by Dave Edinburgh at the latest article by James Delingpole:

    Greenpeace claims that if the ice shelf around Greenland melts London will become the new Atlantis. This dire prediction about the future of London can be found in many ‘Global Warming Impact Assessments’ even one from the London City Council.

    The ice sheets around Greenland were largely absent as little as 950 years ago during the Medieval Warm Period. Interestingly there is no evidence of a rise in sea level during this period. In fact there is plenty of evidence that the sea levels were the same as they are today! Science and culture flourished during this period. We have many great works of literature by authors like Chaucer and Thomas Aquinas were penned and preserved. I think someone, somewhere would have recorded a massive 20 foot sea level rise!!

    Also many sea-ports, complete with docks and mooring rings, were constructed during this period. Now, if the sea level was 20 feet higher when they were constructed then surely they should now be stranded high and dry. But the remnants of medieval seaports at Acre, Bristol, Genoa, Tripoli, Istanbul etc can be found sitting quietly at today’s sea level. The Polar Bears obviously survived being ‘drowned’ as well.

    So let’s take a closer look at one of these structures built at sea level during the height of the Medieval Warm Period. Remember, the lack of ice around Greenland at this time has been well documented by many sources. William the Conqueror began building, what is now known as the Tower of London, in 1078. The Tower is situated on the north bank of the river Thames, within the tidal section at the eastern extremity of London. There were no flood-control locks at this time, the first being built in 1633. The Tower was constructed a few feet above the high tide mark and still sits a few feet above the high tide mark. Many tapestries and paintings of the Tower shortly after its completion show that the sea level has not changed!
