Climate Change Sea Levels Are Not Rising
The most often repeated lie used by the warming alarmists is that 97% of Climate Scientists are in consensus, probably the next most repeated lie is that sea levels are rising because of melting Arctic ice.
Both lies have become cornerstones of the Church of Climatology, but twice in 2011 NASA have announced that sea levels are dropping, this was confirmed by the European Space Agency earlier this month.
Satellite monitoring shows a drop in sea levels and then there is the inconvenient Truth of Archimedes, who like the Medieval Warming Period is ignored by the warmists:
Climate Depot can now announce it is official. Earlier this month, the European Space Agency’s Envisat monitoring, global sea level revealed a “two year long decline [in sea level] was continuing, at a rate of 5mm per year.”
In August 2011, NASA announced that global sea level was dropping and was “a quarter of an inch lower than last summer.” See: NASA: ‘Global sea level this summer is a quarter of an inch lower than last summer’
The global drop in sea level followed NASA’s announcement that sea level around the U.S. was declining in February 2011.
Even the warming alarmists at NASA and the ESA can’t deny the fact that sea levels are falling.
In June 2008 Scientific American ran this story:
Researchers were astounded when, in the fall of 2007, they discovered that the year-round ice pack in the Arctic Ocean had lost some 20 percent of its mass in just two years, setting a new record low since satellite imagery began documenting the terrain in 1978. Without action to stave off climate change, some scientists believe that, at that rate, all of the year-round ice in the Arctic could be gone by as early as 2030.
This massive reduction has allowed an ice-free shipping lane to open through the fabled Northwest Passage along northern Canada, Alaska and Greenland. While the shipping industry—which now has easy northern access between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans—may be cheering this “natural” development, scientists worry about the impact of the resulting rise in sea levels around the world.
The Arctic, unlike Antarctica which is a continent covered with ice, is just floating ice which displaces the same volume of water frozen, as it would in a liquid state, thus melting Arctic sea ice has zero impact on sea level rises.
In yet another amusing twist of irony while Al Gore was having his Goregasm last week Arctic ice was increasing at the rate of an area the size of Manhattan, every 3 minutes.
