Alarmist Media Push Absurd Sea-Level Rise Study

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

sea level rise liberty nyThe news media today is breathlessly promoting a ridiculous “study” claiming sea level will rise up to four feet by the year 2100.

The study and the many fawning media reports on the study are completely ridiculous.

With sea levels currently rising at a pace of approximately one foot per century, sea-level rise would have to – immediately, starting today – quadruple its pace and sustain that quadrupled pace without interruption for all of the next 80 years.

That is simply preposterous.

To begin, here is how EcoWatch reports the study:

If nations fail to act, and current emissions lead to warming of 4.5 degrees, then sea levels are predicted to rise between 0.6 and 1.3 meters by 2100 and between 1.7 and 5.6 meters by 2300.

The predictions are based on a survey of 106 of the world’s leading sea level researchers, carried out by scientists from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and co-authored by researchers from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and published in the Nature Partner Journal Climate and Atmospheric Science.

The key to the prediction is the assertion that many massive Antarctic ice sheets will imminently collapse into the sea. Just last year, however, scientists published research showing such a scenario is not likely to happen anytime soon.

As pointed out by climate realists, and summarized by The Atlantic, “[collapse of] ice cliffs might simply be a product of running a computer model of ice physics at a too-low resolution.”

Then there’s real-world data, reported in Climate at a Glance: Sea Level Rise:

  • Global sea level has been rising since at least the mid-1800s, and data show there has been only a minor recent acceleration.
  • NASA satellite instruments, with readings dating back to 1993, show global sea level recently rising at a pace of merely 1.2 inches per decade (1 foot per century).
  • Human civilization successfully dealt with sea-level rise utilizing nineteenth and twentieth-century technologies, and it will be able to adapt to rising sea levels even more successfully in the coming decades by utilizing twenty-first-century technologies.

Global sea level has been rising at a relatively steady pace of approximately one foot per century since at least the mid-1800s. There has been no significant recent acceleration.

Yet the media-hyped study claims sea-level rise will immediately quadruple and sustain that pace for the rest of the century.

Not likely.
