The big White House push this week is to convince people that rising sea level due to Mann-made CO2 is going to come drown them.
Let’s test that theory out. The graph below plots Manhattan sea level vs atmospheric CO2. When CO2 was below 310 PPM, sea level rose four times faster than it has above 310 PPM.
Sea level data : Data and Station Information for NEW YORK ( THE BATTERY)

Older CO2 data : cdiac.ornl.gov/ftp/trends/co2/lawdome.combined.dat
This experiment took me ten minutes, and completely obliterates the theory that lowering CO2 would reduce sea level rise rates. Why is it that our top scientists can’t perform the most basic tests of correlation with their $29 billion/year?
