Skip to comments.Changing Tides: Research Center Under Fire for 'Adjusted' Sea-Level Data (The hoax continues)
Posted on 06/17/2011 4:33:54 PM PDT by tobyhill
Is climate change raising sea levels, as Al Gore has argued -- or are climate scientists doctoring the data?
The University of Colorados Sea Level Research Group decided in May to add 0.3 millimeters -- or about the thickness of a fingernail -- every year to its actual measurements of sea levels, sparking criticism from experts who called it an attempt to exaggerate the effects of global warming.
"Gatekeepers of our sea level data are manufacturing a fictitious sea level rise that is not occurring," said James M. Taylor, a lawyer who focuses on environmental issues for the Heartland Institute.

Gotta keep that research grant money coming!
Real scientists should have lied about mercury observations, that way we wouldn’t have been saddled with all the complex mathematic of General Relativity. Tensors are too hard.
thanks for posting this.
...and this isn’t the first time they’d fudge the sea level numbers. a few years ago, they did the same thing, with the international tidal gauges.
it is truly amazing, how much outright fraud goes on, in altering official data, and yet the general public is still oblivious...
(Hand raised really really high) I know this one...pick me..pick meeee. Please oh please pick meee.
The dishonest leading the ignorant.....just too easy to do.
At the article, there’s a graphic. The graphic documents a 9 meter sea level rise. If they think the sea level is gonna go up 9 meters, why did they save New Orleans after Katrina?? According to them, it’s just going to flood again.
Should we be buying that beach front property in Arizona now??
Note the word “gatekeepers.” Data that is collected by publicly-paid researchers or officials should NOT require a “gatekeeper.” The data should be readily available for all, for verification, analysis, and use. It is not the private property of the person or agency collecting the data.
That, my friends, is the real problem.
I'm not sure what graphic you're looking at. The one I saw showed a rise of about 5 mm from 1994 to 2010.
you’re correct of course.
i suppose i’m foolish even for being surprised.
when there are so many areas even outside of the AGW hoax,
that the dishonest are leading the ignorant...
Data that is collected by publicly-paid researchers or officials should NOT require a gatekeeper.
agreed! and why do they fight FOIA so hard, like Mann is doing, if their “science” is so “settled” ?
...and along with gatekeepers, they are consolidating of data into fewer and fewer places. like measuring atmospheric CO2 can be done anywhere. yet the ONLY place in the world ever mentioned now, is Mauna Loa. (and before that, they only use dubious ice cores).
and there is NO backup site, for confirming.
if even ONE CO2 reading from last century is higher than now, the entire Hoax is revealed. yet there are, and some were made by Nobel Prize winners in Chemistry:
page 5 and 9, show overall CO2:
180 Years accurate CO2 - Gasanalysis of Air
by Chemical Methods (Short version)
and this one is a good sample of the fraud,
that the gatekeepers you mention, hide:
Sea level Ping
Sea level Ping
I’m amazed at how many enviro-lib friends keep on keeping on as if e-mailgate never happened.
They still talk about Gore like he’s a saint who never asked for a happy ending from the masseuse.
“Is climate change raising sea levels, as Al Gore has argued —”
Waitjustacottonpickinminute! Isn’t Algore the guy who recently bought a multi-million-dollar house on the beach?
