ScienceDaily (June 19, 2008) New research suggests that ocean temperature and associated sea level increases between 1961 and 2003 were 50 percent larger than estimated in the 2007 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report.
The research corrected for small but systematic biases recently discovered in the global ocean observing system, and uses statistical techniques that infill information in data-sparse regions.

Then call it scientific!
This contradicts the last 10 years of global cooling measurements.
Just love those studies that 'correct' earlier studies by making data up.
Wake me up when real scientists discuss the issue and not government paid flunkies.
Before they were measuring from the trough of the wave. Now they are measuring from the crest.
Yeah, nothing worse than changing results due to new data...
Every time I meet a lib with a beach house, I offer to take it off their hands for pennies on dollar-— no takers yet
A 50% rise in the increase means that if the original increase was 0.5 degrees, the revised increase is 0.75 degrees.
The way the story reads, one would think that the base temperature increased 50% (which is probably the impression that they would like to create.)
So the oceans rose 30 feet instead of 20?
See, we don’t even realize that the entire population of humans was wiped out by global warming years ago. But we will, just as soon as the computer models are in-filled and statistically jack-booted. At that point, your ex-life won’t be worth crap.
Another rash of “scientifically plausible lies” - creating data to fit the agenda...
“This contradicts the last 10 years of global cooling measurements.”
Do you have a link on that?
I’m sick and tired of this “global warming” scare.
Where we live, in the NE it’s CHILLY.
More earthquakes too!

THERE IS A SURE-FIRE WAY to make the news these days: Just issue a press release beginning with the words, “New scientific study shows,” and have it assert a conclusion that the MSM fervently want to believe—especially if the resulting story would serve to debunk or refute a Bush administration policy. Slam-dunk! Your press release will become news! You are skeptical, you say? But what other explanation is there for the decision by CBS and MSNBC.
Chalko is best described as a pseudo-scientist—
Too right. I’ve been drowned, starved and burnt to death by so many scientific studies over the last few years that I’m getting whiplash.
Oh, the sea level rose 3/4 of an inch instead of just 1/2 inch?
Hint... the seas have risen 115 meters in the last 11,000 years - slightly more than 1 cm per year.
I neve met anybody who thought any 'Intergovernmental Panel on . . .' was anything but a couple of Governors or other political officers sending a couple of flunkies off on a 'Look! We're actually doing something' junket.
