A favorite scam of alarmists like Trenberth and Holdren is to blame damage from Sandy’s storm surge on global warming driven sea level rise. Never mind that there has been no change in the rate of Manhattan “sea level rise” since the start of measurements 160 years ago, and that there is no correlation between Manhattan sea level and temperature.
Never mind that the apparent sea level rise is due to subsidence, and never mind that there is no sea level rise on the west coast.
Sea level isn’t rising in Manhattan, rather the tide gauge has been subsiding at a constant rate since 1860.
From 1856 to 1910, sea level “rose” at the same rate as now, but there was no warming. There is zero correlation between Manhattan sea level and global warming.
