The bay was about a foot below normal when I drove to work.

Chances are the bay will be at its normal level or higher when I drive home later today.

For once I agree with the warmists! Of course NASA's sea level observations change according to the climate! For the past few years with 'rats in charge, NASA gets funding based on how much they tout Glowbull Warming. NASA sees the Rasmussen polls too, and sense a change in the winds, or a "changing climate", and know they'll soon be dropping this Glowbull warming nonsense when the political winds do change.

Obama said of his election that the Earth would start to heal and the oceans would start to recede. Maybe it's true. /sarc.

There's this really large craft hovering just off the coast of Santa Monica. It's inserted a large twisty straw into the ocean and I hear this giant sucking sound.

Should I call the authorities? Ross Perot?

Last night, on what passes for the local news in the DFW area, they were lamenting the fact that the water pumped from the Trinity River into a gas well for fracking purposes is trapped forever thousands of feet down.

I guess they had something there. /s

Is this the same NASA that said “Aliens were going to destory us when they detect our green house gases?”

“The atmosphere sucks up a huge amount of water from the ocean every year,” Willis said. “Almost enough to drop sea level by a meter, or three feet. Most of that falls back into the ocean.”

This year, however, a lot of it didn’t. "Some of the extra part of that rain fell over Australia...

Global sea-level dropped significantly over the past year until Moochelle Obama, who has been grazing in Martha's Vineyard, hit the beach.

a trend toward LOWER sea-levels

QUICK, hide this information. It's very important to make Americans think they have to pay $Thousands more each year for electricity to save the planet.

It's a key part of the radical Muslim's plans playing POTUS to destroy America. Americans can't know that actually the Earth is COOLING.

Obviously the data is wrong, you can’t believe real world measurements.

Don’t believe real world measurements, go off the models to get an accurate idea of what is really going on.

Satillites are likely in need of calibration or we had a anti-global warming technician working on the database again.

Again, Global Warming is real! a fact! get that through your head.

Thank you, this was a message from your future international overlords......see you in 2020/SARC

The space aliens that are mad at us for global warming stole the oceans so their fusion reactors could power up the intergalactic Q-33 Space Modulator that is going to blow the earth to smithereens if we don’t re-elect Black Banana. He IS one of them, you know.

Malibu? I thought it was up in Santa Barbara? "Next" to Dennis Miller.

Miller started/joined the chorus that took his town "elders" to task
a couple of years ago. They had allocated ~$29K to have some
hippie paint a line through the town as to where the new "high
tide" mark would be if *we* didn't cave into the Algorbots.

Enough grief was visited upon them that they caved on the project.

Having seen the ocean once I feel qualified to say the sea level is both rising and falling but at exactly the same rate. Of course there may be exceptions at times.

Having lived in NJ and fishing the ocean from both beach and boat for the last 40+ years, you my friend are correct.

“We expect that, within the next year or so, we’ll see sea-level rising again,” Willis said Wednesday. “And actually, the very latest data suggest that’s probably already started.”

Wrong. We are headed back toward another La Nina.

La Niña returns

But the drop of about a quarter inch on average does not signal a reversal of global warming, said Josh Willis, a Jet Propulsion Laboratory climate scientist who reported the latest data this week.

The USA's once proud space/science program has now degraded to the point where JPL is forecasting the weather. Jets? Propulsion? Nah, that's sissy stuff.
