    His moniker seems appropriate.

    If you photoshop islamics in place of the water, you will have a more accurate pic of the actual flood problem…

    Maybe Modern Education is a big part of the problem.

    But the sea level could, might be rising, study suggests!

  5. Steve Case says:

    I thought the rate of sea level rise might be negative, but the PSMSL monthly data for Frederikshavn, Denmark calculates out to 0.1 mm/yr since 1894. However, since 1953 (the mid point of that time series) the rate is a negative -0.2 mm/yr. And so it follows that the acceleration is also negative -0.008 mm/yr².

    Just thought you and your new Twitter friend might like to know. (-:

      The closer you get to Scandinavia, the less the SL rise.

      It seems that the Scandinavian countries must be undergoing some sort of up-lift, because they all have large NEGATIVE SL changes.

      Local Relative Sea Level
      To determine the relevance of the nodal cycle at the Dutch coast, a spectral analysis was carried out on the yearly means of six main tidal gauges for the period 1890–2008. The data were corrected for atmospheric pressure variation using an inverse barometer correction. The spectral density shows a clear peak at the 18.6 -year period (Figure 1). The multiple linear regression yields a sea-level rise (b1) of 0.19 +/- 0.015 cm y-1 (95%), an amplitude (A) of 1.2 +/- 0.92 cm, and a phase (w) of -1.16 (with 1970 as 0), resulting in a peak in February 2005 (Figure 2). No significant acceleration (inclusion of b2) was found.

      Coastal management requires estimates of the rate of sealevel rise. The trends found locally for the Dutch coast are the same as have been found in the past 50 years (Deltacommissie, 1960; Dillingh et al., 1993). Even though including the nodal cycle made it more likely that the high-level scenarios would become apparent in the observations, no acceleration in the rate of sea-level rise was found. The higher, recent rise (van den Hurk et al., 2007) coincides with the up phase of the nodal cycle. For the period 2005 through 2011, the Dutch mean sea-level is expected to drop because the lunar cycle is in the down phase. This shows the importance of including the 18.6-year cycle in regional sea-level estimates. Not doing so on a regional or local scale for decadal length projections leads to inaccuracies.


      If I remember my map correctly, Denmark is not too far away from the Dutch coast, so I will go with these guys on the sea levels going down.

    We have been to Denmark this summer and it was not under water. Maybe things have changed.

  7. AndyG55 says:

    Yes, The Danes often built close to the water…

    They are not the least bit worried about SL rise.

    I wonder what his point was meant to be.

    • AndyG55 says:

      ps, If you google “lakeside Denmark” you will see plenty of pics showing that the Danes know SL rise is NOT an issue.

  8. gregole says:

    So Denmark (my grandfather was from there…) is a low-lying country; but as in much of Scandinavia, the land if actually rising in relation to sea-level. What sea-level rise problem? Maybe Supreme DK suffers from…ignorance.

    Denmark climate refugees heading for higher ground.
