Study claimed in 2009 that sea levels would rise by up to 82cm by the end of century but the report's author now says true estimate is still unknown.
Scientists have been forced to withdraw a study on projected sea level rise due to global warming after finding mistakes that undermined the findings.
The study, published in 2009 in Nature Geoscience, one of the top journals in its field, confirmed the conclusions of the 2007 report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It used data over the last 22,000 years to predict that sea level would rise by between 7cm and 82cm by the end of the century.
At the time, Mark Siddall, from the Earth Sciences Department at the University of Bristol, said the study "strengthens the confidence with which one may interpret the IPCC results". The IPCC said that sea level would probably rise by 18cm-59cm by 2100, though stressed this was based on incomplete information about ice sheet melting and that the true rise could be higher.
Many scientists criticised the IPCC approach as too conservative, and several papers since have suggested that sea level could rise more. Martin Vermeer of the Helsinki University of Technology, Finland and Stefan Rahmstorf of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany published a study in December that projected a rise of 0.75m to 1.9m by 2100.
Siddall said that he did not know whether the retracted paper's estimate of sea level rise was an overestimate or an underestimate.

Why do they even bother? No one is listening anymore. Those that believe in global warming, still believe it, have always ignored facts and will continue to do so. Those that don’t believe in global warming or don’t believe in it now, will never listen to these liars again, weather what they say is the truth or not.
They should be sued for every dime they took from the tax payers and any money they have now they should be forced to return.
And why the heck weren’t these liars fired???
I guess that's progress; at least Vermeer and Rahmstorf weren't labeled witches.
The silence from the American State Run Media is deafening!
We’re outnumbered by idiots. Good news anyway.
Where is this from?..the site of the missing scientist out of Ottawa, NRC Canadian Neutron Beam Centre-Lachlan Cranswick.
Have been researching Lachlan's site all night. Interesting. Different science but same MO- politics, science and money.
Buy Maldive Island stamps before it disappears. Good investment portfolio coming for disappearing islands. Buy their stamps, currency and scenic photos for posterity.
Gorsh! Them thar peer-reviewers must o’ missed them lil ol’ bitty mistakes, hey?
*Bang! Bang! Bang!*
Hello American media!?
*Bang! Bang! Bang!*
I think there is a big story here you’re being scooped on!
What you don’t care??????
It’s the Obama Factor. The sea levels stopped rising once he was elected, just as he prophesied.
Seems that the main criticism was that the estimate was too conservative and that sea levels were to raise even higher!
But the science is settled last I heard ... /s
**No one is listening anymore.**
Unfortunately, the idiots in DC, including the EPA still listen and Believe everything told to them by ALBORE.
I think some of them can’t bring themselves to believe global warming isn’t true. Part of it is, they have been so brain washed by the many years of lies. Part of it is that pride thing. Nobody likes to admit they were wrong, or were made a fool of.
Think of it as a religion. It is their way to "matter". Just imagine if someone came along and presented evidence that your religion was based on lies - you'd vehemently reject the evidence until it became undeniable.
A great article from 2008 by a scientist showing that, assuming global warming is true, it would still take at least 3000 years for the sea levels to rise to a dangerous height, not 100:
(warning: some heavy math for the non-scientifically inclined, like me!)
I need more HOT AIR from these folks. I am turning blue from all of this cold weather.
That is one good thing these idiots are doing -- they are generating lots and lots of Hot Air!
"Modern science is a bullshit factory. Amount of papers, information is amazing BUT most of it is repeating itself BS. Why? Cause, scientists must publish to survive, keep his job, get funded in the future. Sure, one can publish a lot by doing superb cutting edge research every other week. But science is not a manufacturing plant. So, folks have chosen simpler ways to boost their paper counts. #1 the trick is to publish as many papers as one can based on a single modest result, or NO significant results whatsoever. Fraud, comes the second. "Massaging/forging data" sounds disgusting? Well, it doesn't if you want to keep your paycheck coming...."

It's even worse at university because one has to adhere strictly to all the worldviews held by those who hold the GRANT MONEY - grant dollars have controlled university research departments in the USA for many many many decades. It's all about the money, follow the money; but if you choose not to play by the game rules, or at least appear to be playing in Their Big Money Casino, you'll never be published again. Sure, one or two 'wild' cards every once in a while, now & again, is fine, but scientists who are seriously philosophically inclined can't abide this forever. The real power status quo must be maintained at all times. Do you believe that Lachlan Cranswick has perhaps gone "off grid" - left of his own accord & inclination, entirely disinclined to play Their Game, anymore?
