Sea Level Expert Rips Study Claiming Fastest Rise in 2800 years: Study ‘full of very bad violations of observational facts’

But Professor Dr. Nils-Axel Morner, a leading world authority on sea levels and coastal erosion who headed the Department of Paleogeophysics & Geodynamics at Stockholm University calls the new study and the media spin surrounding it “demagogic.”
“The PNAS paper is another sad contribution to the demagogic anti-science campaign for AGW. It is at odds with observational facts and ethical principles,” Morner wrote to Climate Depot. “The paper is full of very bad violations of observational facts,” Morner explained.
Few scientists have published as much on the subject of sea level rise as Dr. Mörner. He is also a co-founder of the Prague-based Independent Committee on Geoethics.
Morner noted:
– global tide gauges show moderate mean rates
– many key sites and test sites show little or no rise at all
– nowhere do we find records of true “acceleration”
– satellite altimetry show a mean rise of 0.5 ±0.1 mm/yr after back-callibration
– past sea level oscillations have been faster & steeper that in the last century
Morner explained: “The paper is full of very bad violations of observational facts.”
Just one first example:
This is their graph of sea level change at Christmas Island , Kiribati
This is the tide gauge record from Christmas Island
Morner asked: “How can anyone find a rapidly rising trend in this tide gauge record? It is flat or rather slowly falling – but in no way rising.”
So they work – with no respect to observational facts. A true case for Fraud Investigation,” Morner added.
Climatologist Dr. Judith Curry, Former Chair of School of Earth & Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Institute of Technology also weighed in on the studies. “So, what to make of all this?” Curry wrote on her blog on Feb. 23, 2016.
Curry: “At a presentation that I made earlier this year to CEOs of small electric cooperatives, one participant was surprised by what I had to say about sea level rise – he hadn’t realized that there had been sea level rise prior to 1950.  I.e., like ‘climate change’, all sea level rise has been sold as caused by humans.
Sea level has overall been rising for thousands of years; however, as the Kopp et al. paper points out, there have been century scale periods of lowering sea level in the recent millennia.  It is not clear from my cursory reading as to whether meaningful decadal and multi-decadal variations in sea level can be discerned from their data.

The key issue is whether the sea level rise during the past 50 years reflect an acceleration in sea level rise.  The IPCC figure 3.14 suggests that there is no acceleration, given the large rates of sea level rise in the first half of the 20th century.  Until we have an understanding of variations in decadal and multi-decadal sea level rise, we can’t make a convincing argument as to acceleration.

With regards to coastal planning, I absolutely agree with the paper linked to above.  Locations where sea level rise is a problem invariably have rates of sea level rise that are much greater than even the altimeter values of 3.2 mm/yr are caused by local geologic processes, land use, and or coastal/river engineering.  Global values of sea level rise have essentially no use in coastal planning; rather they seem mainly relevant in terms of motivating ‘action’ on carbon mitigation policy.

Sea level will continue to rise, no matter what we do about CO2 emissions.  We need creative solutions – one of my favorites remains the garbage solution.

More analysis of new sea level rise study: The article was based on some very complex statistical work and in that context we note that the authors describe their work as “semi-empirical”.  What does that mean?  It simply means that their results come partly from  guesswork.  And seeing the authors are keen Warmists we can be sure in which direction their guesses tended. And, with the complex nature of their analyses, guesses at various points could make a big difference to the final outcome.  To believe their conclusions would therefore require an act of faith.”
Another analysis:  “HH Lamb also provides strong evidence that sea levels were at least as high, and probably higher, back in the Middle Ages, and also around 400 AD. In between, sea levels fell, so we know that sea levels have never been the sort of constant thing often portrayed. For instance, he talks of sea levels dropping by 2 meters between 2000 and 500 BC, a rate of 1.33mm/year. As I think it is safe to assume that this was not a steady rate throughout, it seems reasonable to assume that for much of this period the fall was much greater.”
Meteorologist Tom Wysmuller told Climate Depot on Feburary 24: ‘For the past 130 years there has been ZERO acceleration in sea-level rise as directly measured by tide gauges in tectonically inert areas (land neither moving up nor down), even as CO2 has risen almost 40% in the same period.’ Also see: Meteorologist Tom Wysmuller: ‘There is no measurable linkage between Sea Level and CO2!’ – ‘The Inconvenient CO2/Sea Level Non-Linka

Past Sea Level Rise Data ‘Adjusted’ Upward: NASA has ‘more than tripled sea level rise by simply altering the data’ – In 1982, NASA showed 1 mm/year.  Now they claim 3.3 mm/year. They have more than tripled sea level rise by simply altering the data.

New paper finds sea level rise has decelerated 44% since 2004 to only 7 inches per century – Published in Global and Planetary Change – According to the authors, global mean sea level rise from 1993-2003 was at the rate of 3.2 mm/yr, but sea level rise ‘started decelerating since 2004 to a rate of 1.8 ± 0.9 mm/yr in 2012.’ – ‘The authors also find “This deceleration is mainly due to the slowdown of ocean thermal expansion in the Pacific during last decade,” which is in direct opposition to claims that the oceans “ate the global warming.” This finding debunks alarmist claims that ocean heat uptake has increased over the past decade, demonstrating instead that ocean heat uptake has decreased during the global warming pause since 2004, and has gone negative since 2007′

New paper finds global sea levels will rise only about 5 inches by 2100 — A new peer-reviewed paper by sea level expert Dr. Nils-Axel Morner – Study ‘concludes that Australian government claims of a 1 meter sea level rise by 2100 are greatly exaggerated, finding instead that sea levels are rising around Australia and globally at a rate of only 1.5 mm/year. This would imply a sea level change of only 0.13 meters or 5 inches by 2100. Dr. Morner also finds no evidence of any acceleration in sea level rise around Australia or globally’

Flashback 1987: ‘Global Warming’ Causes Sea Levels to Fall — 2016: ‘Global Warming’ Causes Slowdown In Sea Level Rise – Climate Depot’s Marc Morano: “Before ‘global warming’ caused sea level INCREASES, ‘global warming’ caused sea level DECREASES in 1987. Now in 2016, a NASA study is claiming ‘global warming’ is causing a slowdown in sea level rise.”

Drowning in Sea Level Nonsense: ‘ The notion of the seas rising, swamping coastal cities, and creating havoc is the stuff of science fiction, not science’

Geologist Dr. Don Easterbrook debunks ‘absurd’ new warmist study claiming 1,700 U.S. cities will be below sea level by 2100 — Easterbrook: ‘The rate used by [Lead Author] Strauss for his predictions is more than 10 times the rate over the past century!’

Geologist Dr. Don Easterbrook debunks ‘absurd’ new warmist study claiming 1,700 U.S. cities will be below sea level by 2100 — Easterbrook: ‘The rate used by [Lead Author] Strauss for his predictions is more than 10 times the rate over the past century!’ – Easterbrook: ‘The accelerated rise is based on postulated accelerated warming but there has been no warming in the past 15 years and, in fact, the climate has cooled during that time. So no climatic warming means no accelerated sea level rise as postulated by Strauss…the huge rise of sea level rates proposed by Strauss are absurd and that the maximum sea level rise by 2100 will be less than one foot’

New Study sea level expert Prof. Morner: ‘At most, global average sea level is rising at a rate equivalent to 2-3 inches per century. It is probably not rising at all’ – Sea level is not rising at all in the Maldives, the Laccadives, Tuvalu, India, Bangladesh, French Guyana, Venice, Cuxhaven, Korsør, Saint Paul Island, Qatar, etc.– ‘Modelling is not a suitable method of determining global sea-level changes, since a proper evaluation depends upon detailed research in multiple locations with widely-differing characteristics. The true facts are to be found in nature itself’

Are sea-levels rising? Nils Axel-Morner documents a decided lack of rising seas – Sea level scares are, ‘as it turns out, one interpretation of some highly adjusted, carefully selected data, all possibly ‘corrected’ by one outlying tide gauge in Hong Kong. Nils Axel-Morner is here to point out that the raw satellite data shows barely any rise, and furthermore, the observations from places all over, like the Maldives, Suriname, Tuvalu, India, Bangladesh, Venice, and Germany show not much either. It’s close enough to zero to call it ‘nothing’

    What caused sea level rise 2800 years ago to be greater than it is today? That is well past the end of the last ice age and the Holocene optimum. It could not possible have been Man’ s use of fossil fuels, not 2800 years ago.

        Dano2, you seem impervious to facts. But, here they are none-the less. 2800 years ago was the end of the Greek dark ages a very cold period that ended many civilizations. Then the Roman Warm Period began. It was much warmer than today and caused a lot of ocean water expansion, thus rising sea levels. I’m sure some glacial melting contributed as well. Sea level rise was rapid and well documented as cities moved inland. The original Alexandria, Egypt, for example, is now under water. You can see a picture of a 3000 year old Egyptian statue in the Smithsonian article “Raising Alexandria.”

        • Dano2

          Facts are facts. You don’t get your own facts.

          And you were duped: the Roman Warm Period began. It was much warmer than today

            “Goodspkr” is a retirement-age public speaker named Jim Kutsko – not a scientist. He has repeatedly refused to answer how he, as a retirement-age non-scientist AGW denialist, is somehow able to see a “truth” that evades hundreds of major scientific organizations, world-wide. Are all of these hundreds of major scientific organizations corrupt? Are they all somehow not intelligent enough to come to the correct conclusions, leaving this retirement-age non-scientist to reveal the “truth” to the world? How likely does he find these two scenarios, and what might either one say about his own understanding of how science works? Or, does he have an alternative explanation?

            “Climate Change Dispatch” is a WordPress Blog run by a freelance writer named Thomas Richard who has a bachelors degree in engineering with no scientific expertise that used to be named “Climate Change Fraud”.

            None of those Blogs have anything to do with climate research and unlike each of those PopularTechnology.net has been cited 11 times in 7 scholarly peer-reviewed journals: http://www.populartechnology.net/2014/11/the-impact-of-popular-technologynet.html#Journal

            The others have nothing but climate stuff while Popular Technology covers about 75% of climate. So maybe they could rename their site Popular Technology and Climate. They have some very good coverage but the warmistas look at their links to news items and call it a news clearing house. One of their articles on Cook’s Skeptical Science is out of date. Cook has a degree now in science and over a dozen degreed people on that site. It’s similar to the NIPCC site, it’s own science organization.

            Take the rant on Judith Curry. Maybe they should update their material on her:

            So she’s no longer a hardcore warmista supporter and has seen the light. So on that basis I find it embarrassing to reference their site.

            I’ve also noticed that they reference all these sites for referenced linked. I would be greatful that they reference PT’s site on the peer reviewed sources although some don’t return the favor of listing PT’s site on their climate links lists.

            So I reference stuff that gets the best bang per digits, some of it from PT’s site. I go to their site for reference stuff sometimes, the best resource is the Exposés. But some of their stuff is out of date. Then they don’t have daily updates on climate stuff like the others do.

            So maybe PT has some cleaning and sprucing up to do on the old webpage.

            I deal with all kinds of blog readers / commenters on news sites. Some are quite sophisticatedly and have good arguments, while others are dumber then Dave County voters. I use the best vetted sources I can find from many sites. So I’m sorry that I don’t use PT’s site as a mainstream site, I don’t use any site as mainstream, just what I find as most relevant, best referenced supported.

            I have used PT’s site before as a referance and get more negative feedback then on the other peer reviewed referances, so I typicaly use more targeted references.

            Cheers

            Yes, none of those blogs have anything to do with “climate research”. I can setup a spam website that reposts links to science articles it does not make the site a “climate research” website. There are a few skeptic websites that actually perform climate research such as:

            http://www.drroyspencer.com/
            http://www.co2science.org/

            Why are you inventing misinformation? No one has ever called Popular Technology.net a “news clearing house”.

            This article on skeptical science is not out of date: http://www.populartechnology.net/2012/03/truth-about-skeptical-science.html

            Everything stated in that article is 100% accurate. Cook did not just get a “science degree” but I am sure you heard that in a response somewhere and did not know how to respond. If you think Skeptical Science is similar to the NIPCC you are delusional and should immediately retire from ever debating this subject again. That comment is absolutely embarrassing.

            Unlike you I have been debating this subject for over ten years before Judith Curry had her “conversion”. Nothing in that article about her is inaccurate. Everything in that article is fully cited and sourced. It is an excellent background piece, so people have all the facts before making up their minds on her.

            Of course you will get negative feedback from alarmists about articles from our site because our site poses the most threat to them. This is confirmed by how many times we were discussed in the Skeptical Science forums. How many times do you think those other sites were? What part of YOU WILL NEVER CONVINCE ALARMISTS OF ANYTHING DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND? This is like debating 101. They will intentionally try to take out what they believe are your most dangerous sources with lies, misinformation and strawman arguments and you fall for it by thinking they accept your other sources as valid. They don’t, they just do not bother attacking them because they are not a threat to them.

            My original point stands you linked to an outdated copy of our list and continue to make nonsensical excuses about it. If you are incapable of properly debating this subject then stay out of it and leave to people that can.

            I like those websites too but I don’t limit myself to them. Some of my other websites I often go for reference are Icecap.us, Wattsupwiththat.com, Notrickszone.com, Hockeyschtick.blogspot.cz.

            So don’t give me this buttspew that they don’t deal with climate research! Your sounding like the warmistas.

            I once tried to use the medieval reference page on CO2-Science and to my dismay it didn’t work. I had to go to:

            http://notrickszone.com/2015/12/23/new-comprehensive-map-by-scientists-confirms-medieval-warm-period-was-real-and-global-climate-models-faulty/#sthash.3ll7SpE9.2uTEap7X.dpbs

            >Why are you inventing misinformation.

            I’m not, i’ve had savy repliers calling PT a news recycling site funded by the Koch Brothers and Exxon. I had to do some out of the box searching to counter that. They often reference sites like the desmogblog site and I debunk that as PT does have a very good debunking page on them that’s verifiable.

            >Unlike you I have been debating this subject for over ten years before Judith Curry had her “conversion”

            I never said anything was inaccurate, I just said it’s outdated, as is your Cook page:

            http://www.skepticalscience.com/team.php

            This is what I ment by being similar to NIPCC, they both have their ‘experts’. To me it’s who has the most honest and credible evidence. So it’s time to get real about them, even though we can agree they publish faux material with contrived claims, much like the IPCC does. Like where does he get his funding from? Backgrounds on his team members. Many of your references just fold back to earlier PT posts concerning smears, too much of that. I like more direct material that gets to the meat of issues.

            And what is a climatologist anyway? There are notable physicists listed that are skeptics like:

            Lindzen, Singer, Idso referenced.

            To me climatologists are similar to doctors. There are medical practitioners of who many focus on specialties. But then there are general practitioners with the title of Doctor. Who are real climatologists who directly have degrees reflecting that.

            And then there are scientists like Dr. Tim Ball (who I like and has good digestible stuff on climate) who claims on one news site:

            “PhD in Geography with a specific focus on historical climatology from the University of London (England), Queen Mary College,”

            Yet from his webpage his CV background is listed as:

            Ph.D. (Doctor of Science), Queen Mary College, University of London (England), 1982

            I can’t verify his claim of PhD in Geography and so I can’t really use him as a reference because of that ambiguity. And I find that for other scientists who have really good presentations but their backgrounds can’t be verified. It’s frustrating.

            >Of course you will get negative feedback from alarmists about articles from our site…

            It not just that I get bad feedback, but it’s that they have relevant points about their feedback. But I get bad feedback about the other sites, including anything from Curry’s site these days.

            >My original point stands you linked to an outdated copy of our list.

            Well if you have more current lists please present them. And if you really want to deconstruct Skeptical Science you should dissect that ‘about webpage’, claim by claim.

          • http://www.populartechnology.net Poptech

            Anyone can setup a website and re-post things that does not mean they understand what they are posting. Out of the ones you listed only WattsUpWithThat has actual scientists posting to their website to properly interpret any climate research that is posted.

            When you say “it did not work” do you mean the webpage did not load or did someone make a claim you did not know how to respond to? The MWP Project at CO2 Science is the best reference on that subject on the Internet. http://www.co2science.org/data/mwp/mwpp.php

            Please do not include the phrase “savy repliers” with some online morons who falsely claimed we are funded by anyone, let alone the Koch Brothers and Exxon. You do not have to do any searching to counter a bogus claim, just demand that they prove it – which they cannot. This is debating 101. Do I need to teach a class on this too?

            http://www.populartechnology.net/p/about.html

            PopularTechnology.net is an impartial, not-for-profit website that covers popular trends and technology. This site receives no funding of any kind, has no affiliations and is completely independent.

            Nothing on our Skeptical Science page is outdated. The fact that you are making this ridiculous claim means you do not understand what you are arguing and do not have the background on them.

            What was John Cook employed as when he started his Skeptical Science Blog?

            How long was he employed as such?

            OMG, please stop pulling my leg! The fact that you are attempting to compare the clowns at Skeptical Science to the NIPCC is an embarrassment to this debate. I never thought the debate would devolve so bad like this. Skeptical Science is the laughing stock of the climate debate, so much so that radical environmentalists like Joe Romm do not even take them seriously anymore. http://www.populartechnology.net/2012/09/skeptical-science-too-inaccurate-for.html

            Dr. Timothy F. Ball has a Ph.D. in Climatology not Geography. This is irrefutable based on his Ph.D. thesis, “Climatic change in central Canada : a preliminary analysis of weather information from the Hudson’s Bay Company Forts at York Factory and Churchill Factory, 1714-1850.https://qmro.qmul.ac.uk/jspui/handle/123456789/1382

            None of the people you debate have relevant points (I know I have debated more than you can imagine for over 10 years), you just do not know how to properly respond to them and lack the ability to debate properly.

            What part of negative feedback means they feel the source is a threat do you not understand? You are apparently under some sort of delusion that you are going to change the mind of an alarmist. LMAO! THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE!

            I presented the most current list when I posted here the first time: http://www.populartechnology.net/2009/10/peer-reviewed-papers-supporting.html

            Utter bullcrap, the other links have guest scientists too, as well as references to peer reviewed papers. C3 Headlines is almost entirely based on peer reviewed sources. People look at Watt’s bio and claim he’s nothing more then a weather reporter jockey, although I know that degrees necessarily don’t make for the credentials of validity and IQ. Proving that is something else. But I can tell by the quality of his material, blog and guests / commenters, he is above the other sites. I find relevant material on all 5+.

            >When you say “it did not work”

            I was referring to the interactive map.

            http://www.co2science.org/data/timemap/mwpmap.html

            I didn’t display, I got an error message of application blocked by Java security. I did not see this mother page before. But the NoTricks Zone looks just as good, perhaps a little less comprehensive. But many people want something easy to digest as they don’t have the time nor background to digest such comprehensive information. The easier you make it for them to digest the better they grasp the concepts. They can then pursue it deeper from there. Of course some are just warmista trolls or AGW ‘religious’ believers.

            >Please do not include the phrase “savy repliers” with some online morons who falsely claimed we are funded by anyone, let alone the Koch Brothers and Exxon.

            I did not include them. They say you are not degreed Earth scientist’s, don’t know what your talking about.

            > Skeptical Science page is outdated.

            Then it’s misrepresentation as it’s not a 1 man / woman show as I linked to the team staff.

            >The fact that you are attempting to compare the clowns at Skeptical Science to the NIPCC is an embarrassment to this debate.

            I just did a structural, resource comparison, not one based on credibility nor experience. Get real!

            >Dr. Timothy F. Ball has a Ph.D. in Climatology not Geography.

            Show me where that’s so, it’s not on his webpage CV! And I don’t see it listed on that referenced paged. The linked PDF page says:

            “A thesis presented to the University of London in partial fulfillment of their requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Queen Mary College”

            CV:

            Ph.D. (Doctor of Science), Queen Mary College, University of London (England), 1982

            This does not make him a climatologist by publishing one paper, although I wish it did. You should be referring to his CV from his website!

            >None of the people you debate have relevant points.

            Most yes, But some do. And who do you know who I debated? Some point to NASA or NOAA for their resource although I have stuff that refutes their convictions. But I’m always looking for better stuff, more current stuff. I’m waiting for the Arctic melting turnaround as it’s just about run out the 30 year melting cycle. This year it may surprise the warmistas as it’s already above the 2012 levels during the “hottest year” yet.

          • http://www.populartechnology.net Poptech

            The Hockey Schtick and NoTricksZone has had maybe 1 to 2 scientists guest post over their entirety while WattsUpWithThat has had hundreds in over 6000 guest posts. The bulk of those websites post un-vetted content which according to you would be dismissed under the same exact arguments the people you claim to debate make.

            Watts does not claim to be a climate scientist but at least Anthony posts his bio unlike those other websites, he has been published in the peer-reviewed literature.

            “Analysis of the impacts of station exposure on the U.S. Historical Climatology Network temperatures and temperature trends”
            http://dx.doi.org/10.1029/2010JD015146

            What do these online clowns you claim to debate say about the non-existent credentials of The Hockey Schtick, NoTricksZone, Climate Change Dispatch and C3 Headlines? They probably say nothing because they don’t care about those websites.

            There is a problem with the security settings on the CO2 Science Java Map applet. I contacted them to get it resolved. In the mean time I added the URL to the Java exception list and it loads fine. This is only an issue if you have Java 5 update 51 or newer installed.

            Regardless, the CO2Science main MWP page is directly available from their menu. Go to DATA -> MWP PROJECT …this is like Internet 101.

            Now you are changing your argument, we never claimed to be degreed Earth Scientists and nothing we post requires those qualifications. We do not interpret climate science and all of our posts are fully cited and sourced.

            Unlike those other websites, PopularTechnology.net has been extensively cited in the peer-reviewed literature.

            http://www.populartechnology.net/2014/11/the-impact-of-popular-technologynet.html#Journal

            You just made a strawman argument, where do we claim Skeptical Science does not have contributors? All of which is irrelevant to the information in our fully cited and sourced article about that worthless alarmist blog.

            Your attempted “comparison” between Skeptical Science and the NIPCC is an amateur embarrassment beyond words. If you truly believe that then you should retire from this debate today.

            My God this is tiring, that is a link to his Ph.D. Thesis. Do you know what that is? It is not a paper but what you have to complete to earn your Ph.D. in your chosen field. It is common for scientists on their CVs not to list the degree field, as Dr. Ball did on his CV.

            Do you understand that his Ph.D. Thesis is titled: “Climatic change in central Canada“?

            All of this confusion is because his official title as a professor was in “Geography”. That’s because it was uncommon for Universities back then to have separate climate change departments. Instead they were frequently grouped under a Universities’ Geography department.

            From all of the arguments you have presented here and the sheer volume of debates I have had online over the last ten years I know for fact no one you debated has had valid points, you simply did not know how to respond to them.

            I know, he has been vetted by his peers and I’m familiar with the et.el., which includes degreed climate scientists. I use it as a reference along with this study for balance:

            http://globalwarmingsolved.com/2013/12/summary-urbanization-bias-papers-1-3/

            Good overview on how NOAA processes the surface data. But climate is by definition the long term observation of meteorology events. So those who are in the science of meteorology are just one step from being climatologiests in by book.

            >What do these online clowns you claim to debate say about the non-existent credentials:

            >You just made a strawman argument, where do we claim Skeptical Science does not have contributors?

            I never said you did, but by ignoring the SS- site’s team expert list you give that impression. You should compare their experts against the NIPCC team. But I look at it this way, SS to NIPCC is like comparing a community college to a university in the quality of info and academics. But SS does have a notible team list. NIPCC should give some background info on thier team scientist like SS does.

            >My God this is tiring, that is a link to his Ph.D. Thesis.

            Well that’s kind of quirky, why didn’t he list it as science of climatology? AGWers will discredit it. If some of his peers verify his credentials then it would be more acceptable. Another thing is the Heritage lists his credentials as Historical Climatologist when he was at University of Winnipeg. I was told there was a big spat over that with the university. His CV shows “Lecturer, Department of Geography” and it shows advancement up from there to Professor of UW.

            According to Wikipedia: “University of Winnipeg does not have, nor has it ever had, a climatology department. However, Dr. Ball has disputed these claims, maintaining that the climate program at The University of Winnipeg was part of the geography department in the early 1980s”
            “Ball claimed, in an article written for the Calgary Herald, that he was the first person to receive a PhD in climatology in Canada, and that he had been a professor for 28 years. l “cite_note-Coverup-45″In the ensuing court case, Ball acknowledged that he had only been a professor for eight years, and that his doctorate was not in climatology but rather in geography, and subsequently withdrew the lawsuit on June 8, 2007.”

            So with a background like that I can see why people would be skeptical of his articles and credentials. It also gives ammunition to those who discredit the Heritage organization.
            So although I find his presentations mostly spot on, his integrity factor is in question.

            Our article has nothing to do with the clowns who contribute to the SS website. Why would we compare a bunch of alarmist clowns against real scientists? Why would you want to know if a scientist scuba dives or not? It makes no sense. Community College? LMAO more like clown college.

            > Well that’s kind of quirky, why didn’t he list it as science of climatology?

            Queen Mary University of London does not have a Climatology school so it is technically classified as “Geography”. What matters though is what his thesis was in since that is the research work he did to earn his Ph.D. It is not possible for AGWers to discredit his Ph.D. thesis which is titled: “Climatic change in central Canada.

            https://qmro.qmul.ac.uk/xmlui/handle/123456789/1382?show=full

            Geography is not simply the study of map making, as stated on their School of Geography webpage:

            http://www.geog.qmul.ac.uk/admissions/undergraduate/degrees/index.html

            The general idea about Geography is all wrong. I am not merely a student of maps or the Earth’s features; I am a critical investigator of the way the world works. Geography at Queen Mary includes everything from the causes of uneven development to the interconnected physical mechanisms that allow the planet to function.” (Anika Bahra, BA, 2009–2012)

            This is how Queen Mary University of London describes their BSc degree in Geography: http://www.qmul.ac.uk/undergraduate/coursefinder/courses/80005.html

            Our Geography BSc enables you to explore the processes and mechanisms that shape the planet, examining how physical, chemical, biological and human agents affect the landscape on short to long timescales. We explore key topics and issues with you including climate change, environmental management …and examine how these influence or are conditioned by human activity.

            This is how Queen Mary University of London describes their BA degree in Geography: http://www.qmul.ac.uk/undergraduate/coursefinder/courses/80084.html

            The flexibility of our Geography BA degree programme allows you to focus on the areas that interest you most, …people and the environment; and the science and politics of climate change.

            Dr. Ball was employed at the University of Winnipeg for 25 years and was a “Professor” for 14 of them (Assistant, Associate and Professor). He has published 32 papers directly related to climate change.

            He has every right to call himself a Historical Climatologist since that was what his Ph.D. thesis was in as well as various peer-reviewed papers he has published.

            There is no objective criteria that can be used to determine who is a “climate scientist”. The field of climate science is a very broad discipline that includes scientists from a variety of backgrounds. Very few climate scientists have a Ph.D. in Climatology like skeptical scientist Dr. Patrick J. Michaels. Well known alarmist scientists such as Gavin Schmidt of RealClimate.org has a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics, Phil Jones the Director of the Climatic Research Unit of Climategate fame has a Ph.D. in Hydrology, IPCC Chairman Rajendra Pachauri has a Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering and Hockey Stick author Michael Mann has a Ph.D. in Geology.

    This looks like another case of “Hide the Decline.” From what Nils-axel Morner shows, the proxy for sea level obviously doesn’t line up with what current measurements are showing so just ignore the discrepancy and publish the report!

  • Dano2

    So yet another Emeritus Professor with a scant publishing record (with major errors in the paper, making its conclusions flawed) on a topic is hauled out as an expert.

    No wonder they use this guy – he incorrectly stated in a published work that sea levels weren’t even rising. Just the man for the denialist crew.

      Sea level rises when we come out of an ice age. Always has. Always will. Humans cannot accelerate it or decelerate it. If you believe otherwise you really are a moron. Sea level does what it wants but it’s cute that you still believe in a theory that was debunked 30 years ago called global warming.

          Quite the contrary D. You haven’t been paying attention. Majority of research shows that sea level rise is not at all faster today than during any previous interglacial. And in fact sea level rise over the last 50 years has slowed down to what it was the preceding 100 years. From about 1850-1950 sea level rise was much faster and that was before man-made co2 emissions were in full swing. So, you can be rest-assured that driving your car has zero affect on the rate of sea level rise. Co2 and sea level rise have no correlation as you can conclude since the rate of rise has indeed slowed over the last 50 years even though co2 levels continue to go up. Thanks for playing.

No, that’s just too absurd.

          His work was largely done before the satellite era, and the one real paper he tried to write after the satellite era contained egregious errors.

          Besides the embarrassing dowsing thing, there’s the totally embarrassing thing: Pattern Recognition in Physics that would get a working scientist laughed off the Internet.

            Dano’s overarching point is that he is a troll. He has no other points.

  • Gonzo

    NYT’s Gillis’ article was a classic we’re all gonna drown story and another cherry pick by an
    alarmist author. Of course he highlights Annapolis, MD for flooding. It also happens to
    be sinking 7mm a year as are most of Chesapeake Bay area cities. Here’s a hint don’t
    build/develop on soft sandy soil next to the ocean. Not mentioned are the 38 NOAA tide gauges on the West
    Coast,British Columbia and Hawaii that show only an average of 1.16mm ± .72mm of sea level
    rise and show no increase in level of rise.That’s most of the Eastern Pacific in the NH.

    • Dano2

      And yet global SLR is ~3.4 mm/yr.

        Not according to tide gauge data! You know the instruments that actually measure directly.

        • Dano2

          So you only want to measure a tiny fraction of them thar oshin? Why? What’s in it for you to measure a tiny fraction of the ocean?

            So 2133 gauges world wide is not enough?

          • Dano2

            What fraction of the planet do those gauges cover?

            What’s your point troll? You don’t like inconvenient long term data? How old is the satellite data?

          • Isandhlwana79

            He is a troll. Poor one at that. Don’t play the simpleton’s game.

          • Dano2

            My point, smartie, again, is that satellites cover all the oceans. And satellites tell us (and scientists, and mariner, and everybody) that SLR is ~3.4 mm/yr.

            Thanks!

            So we’ll add blind to deaf and dumb for you!! Including the GLOSS stations ALL of the oceans are covered by tide gauges! ie…WORLDWIDE the whole enchilada. Ouch that’s gonna leave a mark! Thanks for playing

            Smartie? LOL. Your point is that you don’t have a point except at the top of your skull. But are you admitting that satellites are better measuring instruments than say land based thermometers are since they cover the entire planet? Thanks for the admission.

          • Dano2

            Smart people can tell there is a difference. Then there is goodspkr.

            More alarmist nonsense. Anyone who has a science or engineering background should have warning signals going off with the AGW nonsense.

            Richard Lindzen spelled it out when he noted:

            “On the other hand, there is quite a lot of ‘science on demand’ as Eisenhower anticipated. The well-established Medieval Warm Period is a problem for the narrative. Michael Mann’s Hockey Stick gets rid of the Medieval Warm Period.

            The physics of moist convection requires that warming maximize in the tropical upper tropospheric troposphere, and models agree, but the data doesn’t show this. Ben Santer reworks the data to show the maximum.

            Significant warming ended about 18 years ago showing that CO2 is not the major factor in climate. Tommy Karl adjusts and rearranges the data to eliminate the pause.

            Quite a few independent studies show that the outgoing radiation from the earth indicate low climate sensitivity. Andy Dessler ignores the physical and mathematical constraints to claim the opposite (at a truly negligible significance level).

            Antarctic sea ice is increasing. Jim Hansen absurdly claims that this is what one should expect from global warming (which, however, has not been occurring for 18 years).

            Basic dynamics of the atmosphere calls for reduced extremes and storminess in a warmer world. John Holdren invents a cockamamie theory of tropospheric polar jets to claim that such an imaginary jet is destabilized with warming, leading to more and more extreme storminess”.

            Knowing what a putz you are I’m pretty sure I know how you will respond to this.

          • Dano2

            You don’t know the fraction either? Well, not surprising coming from you.

          • goodspkr

            And you apparently know you can’t deny the fact that you asking for the fraction of the planet is being monitored by 2133 gauges world wide is more alarmist nonsense. Thanks for you admission.

        • Mike435

          Why do you think tide gauge data and satellite data for sea level rise disagree?

  • Mike435

    Let’s look at what Mörner is saying.

    ““The PNAS paper is another sad contribution to the demagogic anti-science campaign for AGW. It is at odds with observational facts and ethical principles,” Morner wrote to Climate Depot. “The paper is full of very bad violations of observational facts,” Morner explained.

    I have seen the paper. It does not read “demagogic”. I am not an expert, so I cannot make an independent judgement about the paper. We’ll need to wait see what other researchers publish, after they have made of study of it. Mörner has not done that.

    As for the claimed conflict with recent observations, Mörner offers data from one tide gauge. That does not tell you what the global average has been. Even deniers admit sea level has been rising. Judith Curry says this elsewhere in the post. The debate has been over whether the rate of sea level rise is increasing – that is whether seal level rise is accelerating. And what “ethical principles” did this study violate? That’s just a bizarre charge.

    There is a summary of the paper for non-experts you can find here:

  • Mike435

    Here is an article Mörner wrote on sea level change for the general public a few years ago:

    Here is a rebuttal posted at SkepticalScience:

    Here is the sea level in NYC. Same rise rate 150 years ago as now.

    Since the seas act as a big thermometer, it shows that any pretension that sea rise is caused by industrial emissions is a fraud.

    Because the global warming propaganda is built on lies, sooner or later it gets exposed… which is what is now happening.
