Skip to comments.he End of Global Sea Level Rise

In a news conference held near Miami, Florida last night, the Space and Science Research Corporation (SSRC) announced that the global threat of sea level rise caused by decades of global warming is ending. Speaking to cheering supporters from several groups from the general Miami area, SSRC President Mr. John Casey issued a formal declaration of the end of global sea level rise during a presentation in which he discussed the vital role the Sun plays in climate change and how the past growth in sea levels was caused by the Sun and not mankind. The event was sponsored by the American Citizens League. The declaration read:
As a result of the Sun entering a hibernation phase, the Space and Science Research Corporation hereby declares that the past two hundred years of global sea level rise is expected to end no earlier than mid-2014 and no later than 2020. After that time, global sea levels are expected to begin a long term period of decline, lasting at least through the decade of the 2030s. The estimated global sea level decline during that period will range from 20 to 25 cm from current levels.
Casey elaborated with, The many climate models that have taken two decades and billions of dollars to fabricate have been utter scientific failures. Once you take the greenhouse gas theory out of the laboratory and try in in the real world it just does not stand up. Not only has there been no effective growth in the planets temperature for sixteen years, but current temperature trends show the Earths oceans have been cooling for ten years and the atmosphere for seven years! These real world indicators of the true status of the Earths climate are of course, an impossibility if the greenhouse gas theory really worked and mankinds CO2 emissions had the effect as has been alleged. On the other hand, using solar variations for climate prediction, we see global warming ended and the next climate began right on schedule.
This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal. — Barack Obama
Meanwhile, NASA’s Hansen is over in the corner foaming at the mouth.
If there ever was a clear cut case of megalomania, this statement confirms it.
Good to see them agree that the seas have been rising. For twenty years I watched an island disappear and lost my house. I am just as suspect of this group as I am of those certain there that we are causing global warming. Both sides of the argument are very clearly politically motivated.
This is such a crock I don’t even know where to begin...so I won’t.
Does this remind anyone else of Caligula declaring war on Neptune and Neptune’s domain, the sea, and then claiming victory, bringing back boxes of seashells for a triumphal procession in Rome?
Measuring changes in sea level over time is very difficult once you accept that land moves. Coastal islands move a lot. Not only is there erosion, but there is vertical sagging. Land masses built from sand or mud sag under their own weight. The Mississippi delta is going down at a very fast rate. The upper layer of mud used to get replenished by floods, but dykes have stopped that.
Water levels change on the Great Lakes due to plate rebound.
In Wales I stood on a castle that was built with its walls in the sea, but the sea was over a mile away. It is not surprising that the opposite also happens.
The 'threat' of sea level rising is ending? Funny. The 'threat' of a unicorn invasion is ending too... Neither happened or would happen - but why quibble, right?
“Good to see them agree that the seas have been rising. For twenty years I watched an island disappear and lost my house. I am just as suspect of this group as I am of those certain there that we are causing global warming. Both sides of the argument are very clearly politically motivated.”
Hmm, maybe the island was sinking?
Since volcanic ash has supposedly put the lid on rising temperature over the past 15 years, it’s a good thing we had the extra CO2 in the atmosphere or the earth might be a frozen ice ball by now.
Rep. Hank Johnson, a Georgia Democrat, asked if adding a few thousand people to Guam would make the island "become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize."
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls our climates.
3. The earth is a rock.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
You’re right Pentagon. I live 12 feet above sea level - my backyard ends at a tidal salt water stream... if there was any great difference over the many years I’ve lived here I would have noticed. The guy’s a liberal - he just makes the stuff up to fit his hysteria.
Thank God; it was already up to my knees.
Greece is the poster child for that kind of subsidence. Though of course the dishonest media still pretend that CAGW is the culprit.
The Sun is not politically motivated. I attended a seminar on the Sun and Solar Cycle 24 last weekend and it appears that we are heading for a period of little Sun activity... perhaps another Maunder Minimum. If so... buy wool clothing. Also erosion eats more land than rising sea levels... did you see the latest on Australia? She is either rising above the Earth’s crust or the Sea Levels around her are falling. Research and you will find that what I say is true.
“A mind is a terrible thing to waste”.
Our lord and savior BHO has saved us from this imminent demise. If he were Catholic, he would be canonized upon his demise, but alas he is a Muslim. The only thing he has to look forward to is 70 Wookie virgins.
... And you thought he was kidding...
Full press release PDF explaining what is happening and what is coming, if they are right:
Grog Island on the Chesapeake Bay vanished in my lifetime, not because of sea level rise, but of the loss of sea grass. The northeast side of the island used to have acres of underwater sea grass in the shallow waters on the most exposed side of the island. The grass calmed the waves and prevented erosion. The grass died out and within ten years the island was gone.
I have been coming to Deltaville for 50 years and the Bay waters at high and low tide are exactly where they have been since 1966 on the docks and sea walls that have been there since that time.
Interesting Bio. I'd like to know what he did for NASA....was he at the pointy end of the stick, or was he a bureaucratic wonk like James Hansen?
The sea levels are falling! We are all going to die! (Caused, of course, by globull warming.)
The island could have been sinking. I have no idea.
This theory about the sun is just theory, also. When groups with a clear agenda tell me something is scientific, no matter their side, I remain skeptical.
A healthy dose of skepticism is always the way to approach any big claim.
However, unlike the popular with progressives greenhouse gas theory, solar activity leaves evidences of its effects that can be measured and studied. Also, telescopes were in use during the last big reduction in solar activity, the Maunder Minimun.
At that time and in cooler periods since, there are recorded accounts of these cooler periods coinciding with the reduction in sunspots.
As time went on, the mere visual notation that sunspots sometimes go missing became scientific measurements as to how that affects earth’s cilmate.
So, yeah, this may be “just a sun theory” but, unlike the wildly speculative greenhouse gas theory, it is one that is well understood and quite predictable.
It's difficult to prove that a scientific theory is true. You have to collect data FOREVER and the data has to agree with the predictions of the theory.
This contrasts sharply with the relative ease of proving that a scientific theory is FALSE. You only have to find one reliable fact which fails to conform to the theory.
So-called "Anthropogenic Global Warming" fails to predict the lack of warming experienced during the most recent decade. You may safely reject such a theory.
YEA! WE SAVED THE PLANET!
