    The rising sea level myth[W:565]

    Could all this chatter about rising sea levels just be another hoax in an attempt to prop up the AGW hoax?

    " A dangerous misconception is gaining increasing credibility in the public eye. This misconception is that the levels of world seas and oceans is rising.

    The fact that ocean levels are falling, not rising, is easily demonstrated from a wealth of historical evidence, some of which is presented below. Widespread fears and assertions of rising sealevels prove, when examined, to be only deductions from other equally groundless myths.

    Perhaps the world is full of misconceptions, do we really need to worry about them? The rising sealevel misconception is one for which the answer is very definitely "Yes!". This misconception is beginning to cost us very serious money, and interfere with planning and progress in every country with a seashore.

    I think the alarmists aren't claiming that the sea level has been rising but rather that it will rise in the future. Divining the future, of course, doesn't require facts, just belief.

    Re: The rising sea level myth

    I watched a show on one of the Educational kind of channels yesterday about the invasion of Britain by the Romans under Claudius.

    They landed and built many things, one of which was a coastal fort.

    The Brits have now uncovered the ruins ot that fort that was on the coast 2000 years ago. It's 2 miles inland now.

    It's interesting how when the sea level rises, more land is exposed.

    BBC NEWS | UK | England | Kent | Dig uncovers Roman invasion coast
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    The Great Sealevel Swindle

    Here is what the real scientists are saying about sea level change:


    I can not copy the map. If you're interested in what's really happening, you have to click on the link.

    The Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services has been measuring sea level for over 150 years, with tide stations of the National Water Level Observation Network operating on all U.S. coasts. Changes in Mean Sea Level (MSL), either a sea level rise or sea level fall, have been computed at 128 long-term water level stations using a minimum span of 30 years of observations at each location. These measurements have been averaged by month to remove the effect of higher frequency phenomena (e.g. storm surge) in order to compute an accurate linear sea level trend. The trend analysis has also been extended to 240 global tide stations using data from the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL).

    Re: The rising sea level myth

    The great thing about this issue is that we will all know for sure if seas are rising.

    No debate is needed. We will see it for ourselves.

    Uh well according to yourself the sea levels are rising

    There is also this to consider before you blow a fuse.

    "Southampton researchers have estimated that sea-level rose by an average of about 1 metre per century at the end of the last Ice Age, interrupted by rapid 'jumps' during which it rose by up to 2.5 metres per century. The findings, published in Global and Planetary Change, will help unravel the responses of ocean circulation and climate to large inputs of ice-sheet meltwater to the world ocean."
    Is it rising or it is fallng, or is it just derp?

    The sea level has been rising since the last ice age as ice melted, no doubt about that. I think what this guy is saying is it hasn't risen lately and in fact has fallen. Not saying I believe him but it's an interesting site I thought. I listen to all sides with an open mind.

    Works fine for me.
    maybe you have a feature on your computer that screens out real scientific websites, and only lets in the bloggers.

    You might be able to bypass that feature by typing "sea level + noaa" in your search engine, then clicking on "Sea Level Trends - NOAA Tides and Currents"

    That's great to listen to all sides with an open mind, but you can't take all sides as your position at the same time...
