Official Sea Level Vs. The Oceans

According to always trustworthy US government, sea level is rising 3.1 mm/year. As tiny as this is, it is exaggerated by more than 400% over the actual data. Of the 148 currently active (readings after 2010) NOAA global tide gauges, 83% are below the official average. The 148 stations have a mean value of 0.73 mm/year. Almost a third of the stations show no sea level rise.

As with everything else the government says about the climate, there isn’t one smidgen of truth to the sea level story.

    Also they never bother to mention that this is short term sea level changes and the sea level has DROPPED since the highstand during the Holocene Optimum 5-6 thousand years ago.

    Mid to late Holocene sea-level reconstruction of Southeast Vietnam using beachrock and beach-ridge deposits
    http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0921818113001859

    Abstract

    Beachrocks, beach ridge, washover and backshore deposits along the tectonically stable south-eastern Vietnamese coast document Holocene sea level changes. In combination with data from the final marine flooding phase of the incised Mekong River valley, the sea-level history of South Vietnam could be reconstructed for the last 8000 years. Connecting saltmarsh, mangrove and beachrock deposits the record covers the last phase of deglacial sea-level rise from − 5 to + 1.4 m between 8.1 to 6.4 ka. The rates of sea-level rise decreased sharply after the rapid early Holocene rise and stabilized at a rate of 4.5 mm/year between 8.0 and 6.9 ka. Southeast Vietnam beachrocks reveal that the mid-Holocene sea-level highstand slightly above + 1.4 m was reached between 6.7 and 5.0 ka, with a peak value close to + 1.5 m around 6.0 ka….

    CONCLUSION
    We have constructed a new Holocene sea-level curve for Oahu showing mean sea level higher than today between ~5000 and ~2000 yr ago with a maximum ~2 m above present ca. 3500 yr ago….

    I understand Guam has tipped off the chart above.

  3. markstoval says:

    I would like to know when the government funded agencies will stop cheating with every darn measurement that they publish. Do these idiots realize that if you have to fake your data then most likely your hypothesis is dead wrong?

  4. Andy Oz says:

    I’d be alarmed living on the Philippines. Manila is the new Venice of Asia according to government experts. Must be why the US bases moved to Guam and that’s why Guam is tipping over.

  5. Kassu says:

    Which of these tide-gauges are situated in the middle of the open ocean?

  6. The absurdity of using sea level for any agenda is just beyond me. The range of results precludes any logical conclusion being made in either direction. The effects appear to be local, and not due to any global effect. Man made or not. Our local high tide mark at Marino (South Aus) still looks the same as it did 40 years ago. Kiribati is still my favourite. https://eyesonbrowne.wordpress.com/2014/04/25/kirabati-sea-level-rising-or-falling/

    Maybe I’ll buy some land there. Bound to be cheap with all of the climate refugees wanting to move to NZ.

    On the subject of the ridiculousness of sea level measurements, i like number 7 in this list

    Sorry, cant seem to link directly to it you have to scroll down…

  8. bobmaginnis says:

    Scandinavia, still rebounding from the last ice age, is overrepresented with many tide guages, skews the average sea level down. Kassu made a non stupid point, Manila is not open ocean, but in it.

    • Manila is not open ocean, but in it.

      I can’t believe someone as stupid as this “bobmaginnis” character is capable of using a computer. Literally everything he says is the philosophical equivalent of a Terrance & Phillip movie.

  9. You say that the mean is 0.73 mm/year. I’m curious to know what the median is.

  10. tony says:

    Why are there no U.S. cities in that graph? Don’t we have any currently-active NOAA tide gauges here? I thought there was one in Alameda. What does the pink box on the graph represent?

  11. tony says:

    The full link doesn’t have any U.S. cities either.
