BAU scenarios result in global warming of the order of 3-6°C. It is this scenario for which we assert that multi-meter sea level rise on the century time scale are not only possible, but almost dead certain.
The only thing that is dead certain is that Hansen has absolutely no clue what he is talking about.
Data and Station Information for ALAMEDA (NAVAL AIR STATION)
What really damns the leftist’s credibility, is their undying devotion to known crooks and liars. But then, what else do they have?
I think that Hansen truly believes in what he says. Since 1988 he has deluded himself about his own importance. He needs to seek urgent psychological treatment for his mental condition.
This chart is remarkably similar to his 1989? 2010, 5 degrees of warming prediction. Perhaps you could combine them to one post.
But what if, just what if he is right ? If the water vapour gets released, temperatures rocket from -60c to – 55c and then the ice caps all melt ? It could happen. Thats why I type this standing up, in case my @rse turns into a cream bun. Well, it could happen
Outstanding post! In fact, this would be a really good post to use as a reference to counter the bs the the fear mongering Chicken Littles spout about sea level.
In the 1950’s I used to go fishing in the estuary between Alameda and Oakland right at the approach end of the runway. Navy jets would come in less than 30′ over our heads to land. The same rocks I used to sit on then and from which I’d dangle my feet in the water is still there and the water level is still where it was then. Only the jets are gone. http://binged.it/1bjByxu
These Alameda homes didn’t exist at that time – nothing there but sand and these land-locked waterways then. I don’t see any signs of distress today except those houses are built on sand that was very much like quicksand. http://binged.it/17SNJ5D
But if Alameda slides under the waves, here’s why:
