Sea levels north of New York City rose by 128mm in two years, according to a report in the journal, Nature Communications.
Coastal areas will need to prepare for short term and extreme sea level events, say US scientists.
Climate models suggest extreme sea level rises will become more common this century.
“The extreme sea level rise event during 2009-10 along the northeast coast of North America is unprecedented during the past century,”Prof Jianjun Yin of the University of Arizona told BBC News.
“Statistical analysis indicates that it is a 1-in-850 year event.”
Fraudulent science doesn’t get any worse than this. There was a larger jump around 1875, which probably wasn’t 850 years ago. Almost all of the 2009-2010 gain has seen been lost. This event had nothing to do with climate.
There was nothing unusual about sea level rise during 2009-2010. The whole premise of this article is garbage.
The rate of sea level rise at New York hasn’t changed in 160 years. These scientists are engaged in massive fraud, intended for propaganda purposes only. Their work has nothing to do with science.
