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."
Excerpt: Florida State University Geology Professor William Tanner: "Tanner plotted 4000 years of sea-level data on 5,000 years of climatological data published in last year's Encyclopedia of Climatology and found some interesting correlations. Every time the climate warmed a couple of degrees, the sea level went down. Every time the climate cooled a couple of degrees, the sea level went up. This happened four times, each cycle taking about 100 years, and spaced about 900 years apart."
"He says sea level rise has been about six inches over the past century, and he now expects that to slow down and even reverse itself if humans continue warming the Earth."
Atmospheric scientist Dr. Hendrik Tennekes, a scientific pioneer in the development of numerical weather prediction and former director of research at The Netherlands' Royal National Meteorological Institute, and an internationally recognized expert in atmospheric boundary layer processes,"I find the Doomsday picture Al Gore is painting - a six-meter sea level rise, fifteen times the IPCC number - entirely without merit," Tennekes wrote. "I protest vigorously the idea that the climate reacts like a home heating system to a changed setting of the thermostat: just turn the dial, and the desired temperature will soon be reached."
NASA study claim: 'Because the Earth has become more parched, partly because humans are pumping out more ground water, the rising oceans are being absorbed by lakes, rivers, and underground acquirers, much like a sponge absorbs water. An extra 3.2 trillion tons of water has thus been soaked up and stored and is not pouring into the streets of coastal cities.'
AIR passengers face longer costlier flights to the United States as a result of global warming, a British scientist warned yesterday. Climate change is expected to accelerate the high altitude jet stream which blows from west to east, said Reading University atmospheric scientist Paul Williams. This will speed up eastbound flights but slow down westbound flights by much more, he claimed. And flying is expected to become costlier worldwide because the jet stream encircles the globe.
