Study: Sea Levels Will Rise More Than Predicted

[The study] suggests the United Nations climate panel underestimated how much waters will rise in coming decades. The 2007 UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change forecast a sea level rise between 0.18 metres and 0.6 metres by 2100.

Although the Ottawa Citizen spins this story in exactly the opposite direction. If you want the more accurate take, try this.

Mikey Mann & his sidekick are a little busy these days to worry about changing sea levels. They are having their asses reamed out to size gigantic, live on the internet for everyone to enjoy.

They tried to re-scam the world with Hockey Stick 2 and it took less then 24 hours for Uber Canadian Steve McIntyre to fisk him. At lest Mann et al know to read Steve's blog so they can find out their errors and attempt to correct them.

What a homo. I think you need to cut back on the all-male showers in Fort McMurray there, cowboy.

Does the study mention anything about current sea level rises? Or is it rising at the same slow steady level as before?

Is this question actually seeking additional information or is it just creating doubt in a very passive-aggressive way?

Too bad they banned you at Desmogblog, Paul S. It was entertaining watching you irritate people more interested in this than I am. The absurd lengths to which you'd go to deny science was quite the spectacle. You didn't even seem to understand basic arithmetic.

Creating doubt? My cover has been blown by ti-guy.

The ocean had been rising at the leisurely rate of about 2mm a year. Is this still true?

News articles about catastrophic sea level rise rarely mention what sea level is doing presently.

Desmog? Banned? Not me.
