New peer-reviewed paper finds no evidence of a human influence on sea levels — Published in Journal of Climate — ‘Examines global average sea-level rise during 20th century’
Finds 1) Global sea level rise was constant throughout 20th century, with 'small or no acceleration, despite increasing anthropogenic forcing,' ie. increased CO2 has not accelerated sea-level rise. 2) The rate of glacier mass loss 'was not smaller in 1st than in 2nd half of century,' ie., increased CO2 has not accelerated glacier mass loss'
3) Projections of sea-level rise ‘depend on existence of a relationship between global climate change & rate of sea-level rise, but…such a relationship is weak or absent during 20th century.’
In other words, alarmist projections of sea-level rise are based upon false assumptions of a human influence on sea-levels which is not found by observations. In sum, global sea-level rise during the 20th century was constant, not accelerated, and shows no evidence of “climate change” or human influence. Sea level rose more than 3 times faster than the 20th century from the last ice age 20,000 years ago until about 8,000 years ago. During meltwater Pulse 1A shown above, sea levels rose about 15 times faster than during the 20th century. Sea level rise has been at a relatively constant, low level during the past 8,000 years.
