Sea level Rise Review. Rate Of Rise Depends On Who You Ask. Most Say: “No Alarm”

In the latest video, German climate science site Die kalte Sonne here presents a review of sea level rise. No one disagrees that sea level is rising. But there’s plenty of disagreement on how fast it’s really rising. Tide gauges According to the direct tide gauge measurements, sea level rise has been modest and the […]

Huge Database Of Studies Documenting Meters-Higher Mid-Holocene Sea Levels Swells Again In 2020

In 2020, scientists continued to publish papers affirming global sea levels are today about 2 meters lower than they were a few thousand years ago. During the last interglacial (~116 to 128 thousand years ago), when CO2 peaked at just 280 ppm but surface temperatures were so much warmer that much less water was locked […]

Spiegel Article By Stefan Rahmstorf Has “Nothing In The Least To Do With Science”…”Embarrassing”

The world is going underwater?…Really? By Die kalte Sonne (Translated/edited, subheadings by P. Gosselin) “Der Spiegel” has an in-house columnist on climate issues: Stefan Rahmstorf from PIK Potsdam. His latest prank: “Why the sea level is rising faster and faster“. He writes in the introduction, citing data: The rate of rise has doubled during this period, […]

Alarmism Dies In The Maldives: 97% Of 186 Island Coasts Have Grown (59%) Or Not Changed (38%) Since 2005

Despite sea level rise, a 2019 global analysis (Duvat, 2019) found 89% of 709 island coasts have been either stable or growing in size in recent decades. A new Maldives-only study (Duvat, 2020) finds rapid (>3 to >50%) coastal growth in 110 of 186 Maldives islands from 2005 to 2016. Just 5 islands – 2.7% […]

New Study: Sea Level Changes Since 1993 Are ‘Dominated’ And ‘Heavily Influenced’ By Internal Variability

From 1993 to 2018, the satellite altimetry sea level changes reveal both positive and negative accelerations, align with oscillatory patterns, and are dominated by internal variability (e.g., PDO, ENSO). The “forced acceleration pattern” assumed to be associated with anthropogenic global warming “has not emerged”. Image Source: Hamlington et al., 2020 Negative or negligible sea level […]

Over 440 Scientific Papers Published In 2019 Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarm

In 2019,  more than 440 scientific papers were published that cast doubt on the position that anthropogenic CO2 emissions function as the climate’s fundamental control knob…or that otherwise serve to question the efficacy of climate models or the related “consensus” positions commonly endorsed by policymakers and mainstream media sources. Image Source: Collins et al., 2019 […]

Despite 1990s Warming, Japan Climate Has Become More Agreeable, Less Extreme Over Past 100 Years!

Though the media like to tell their audience that man-made climate change is leading to more extreme weather, the data don’t support it. In fact, one could easily argue that Japan’s climate is more agreeable today. By Kirye in Tokyo and Pierre Gosselin No trend in long-term annual precipitation Over the past 100 years, for […]

Cartology Affirms Relative Sea Levels Were The Same Or HIGHER Than Now During The Little Ice Age

Surprisingly accurate nautical maps created the 17th to 19th centuries strongly suggest coastal land area in both hemispheres were quite similar to today’s. There is even evidence relative sea levels were higher than now back then. Image Source: Etsy.com Globally, coasts have grown since the 1980s Between 1985 and 2015, satellite observations indicate the world’s […]

New Paper Presents Photo Evidence Affirming Equatorial Region Sea Levels Have FALLEN Since The 1600s

In a new paper (Mörner, 2019, expanding upon Mörner, 2017), photo evidence confirms sea levels in 5 studied equatorial regions have fallen by about 60 cm since the 17th century…and remained stable since the 1970s. Image(s) Source: Mörner, 2019 Image Source: Mörner, 2017 Another new study (Haryono et al., 2019) of sea level change in […]

CO2 Levels Are NOT What’s Threatening Venice…Sea Levels Were Meters Higher With Much Lower CO2

Paleoclimate evidence shows there is little to no link between atmospheric CO2 concentration and relative sea level. Venice, the treasure of Italy, is a city built on a mud swamp. Consequently, in the last 100 years it has sunk about 25 cm, or 2.5 millimeters per year (Munaretto et al., 2012). The lagoon city had […]
