Claim That Sea Level Is Rising Is a Total Fraud

Sea levels began to rise 18k years ago at the end of the last glacial period. They have risen about 135 meters since then which is an average of 7.5 millimeters per year. That is an average of 750 mm per century (29.5 inches) which is far more than the average over the last century.

From 1880 to 2000 sea level rose about 20 cm or just under 8 inches. Far far less than the nearly 30 inches per century average over the last 18,000 years.

From Wikipedia: "Rosenzweig attended Cook College (at Rutgers) earning a BS in agricultural sciences in 1980, and an MS in Soils and Crops from Rutgers University in 1983.[2] She earned a Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in Plant, Soil and Environmental Sciences in 1991"

Not exactly climatologist credentials.

Refuse to be taken in by the new packaging, "climate change". The original claim of these con-artists and loons was that the "globe is warming". Hold their feet to the fire. I refer to them only as "Global Warmers" and will never accept their new identification of "Climate Changers".

Is Cynthia Rosenzweig the new James Hansen?
Maybe NASA should be defunded, if this is what it's degenerated into.

Land subsidence [sinking] in the New York City area has been roughly 3-4 inches per century, which is primarily due to the Earth’s crust rebounding* from being compressed by massive ice sheets that covered Canada and the northern U.S. about 20,000 years ago near the end of the last Ice Age.

Not sure who's the bigger moron here, Brian Kahn or Cynthia Whatsherface.

This paragraph reads like a pseudo-scientific concept as filtered through the brain of a first grader.

By definition, "rebound," as it relates to glaciers, means the ground rises, and, relatively, the sea level falls, which is the direct opposite of what is being presented as science.

A serious disconnect between reality and activism.

That, and the fact that they now admit to making their analysis by using the thoroughly discredited computer models that have not even remotely proven themselves. Garbage in, garbage out.

Real scientists have forced the IPCC to cease and desist calling reults of computer models "predictions." You'd think that should make them go out and buy a little humility and anti-ignorance pills.

But, no, they now call them "extrapolations." Which the ignorant assume is a serious and wisdom-laden concept, when it actually means "SWAG."

Reading Mark Twain's proof that the length of the Mississippi River is relentlessly getting shorter is a funnier version of the snake oil these charlatans are trying to sell.

What’s the range of sea level rise we can expect to see in the future for the New York region?

Is it high tide or low tide?

“Torture the data long enough and hard enough and it will always confess” - Dr. Earl R. Rich.

One must hope this Data Dominatrix is blond, as she will need an excuse for making a statement “...’of such overt unreality that one fears it will discredit her science’..”. My apologies to Professor Linzden of MIT for the slight liberties I took with his well known sentence about Global Warmers.

Dr. Data Dominatrix is tricky, indeed, when she attempts to use isostatic rebound to predict climate changes caused by anthropogenic global warming. A similar ruse was tried when other Global Warmers claimed England was “sinking into the sea at an alarming rate”.

The ends were, but the middle was rising. Those busy torturing the data in furthering their grant funding attempts know full well that when an island is loaded with several thousand feet of ice during an ice age, that melting of the ice causes the interior/center of the island to rise and the ends to submerge as the land mass straightens out from being bent in the middle by the accumulated weight of the glacial ice.

Basic science being misrepresented by those unable to secure funding to support them in the halls of the academented.

Shameful! Shameful, indeed.

Sea level isn’t rising evenly throughout the world. On average, global sea level has risen about eight inches since 1880. So, the New York rate of sea level rise of nearly one foot is higher than the global average rate. In the U.S., rates of change vary. For example, Grand Isle, Louisiana near New Orleans has seen sea level increase by 23 inches since 1947 whereas Seattle, Washington, has only seen about six inches over that same period. Local factors such as land subsidence are primarily responsible for the differences.

They continue to expect reasonable people to ignore the laws of physics. In this case the "Law of Equilibrium" is being violated. How can the earth experience different levels of ocean rise? I don't buy it.

Well i actually believe the ocean levels are rising but It’s damn sure not because of global warming, it’s called erosion I see it every time it rains here on the ranch. The run off from the rains wash sediment into my stock ponds and periodicly I have to dredge them back out. The Mississippi dumps about 500 million metric tons of sediment into the gulf every year. Now lets throw in all the other rivers and streams of the world, beach erosion and sediment that settles from the air and it’s going to add up and displace alot of water. Drop enough BB’s in a fish tank and it will overflow.
