Don’t Buy From This Dishonest Data Butcher

From Obama’s climate assessment :

Over the past century, global sea level has risen by about 8 inches. Since 1992, the rate of global sea level rise measured by satellites has been roughly twice the rate observed over the last century.

Satellite measurements of sea level began in 1992, so the claimed comparison is impossible. There isn’t any satellite sea level data from before 1992.

If you do an apples to apples comparison of tide gauges from before/after 1992, there is no acceleration. Obama’s claim of acceleration is based entirely on switching between two uncalibrated measurement systems, a mistake which would get him fired from any engineering job.

The 1990 IPCC report said that there was no acceleration during the 20th century.


Does anyone seriously believe that sea level rise suddenly doubled in 1992?

In 1991, Barack Obama was still a birther – promoting himself as being born in Kenya.

    Time to factor in land-side subsidence due to groundwater extraction. In the Atlantic coastal plain, this is negative 3 to 4 mm per year. Somebody has some ‘splainin to do.

    Regarding post-glacial sea level rise: “…Of course, the details are less certain than the overall trend, but there is considerable agreement that the most rapid phases were between about 8000 and 5000 BC, also that the rise of general water level was effectively over by about 2000 BC, when it may have stood a metre or two higher than today.”

    ‘Climate, History and the Modern World,’ second edition, H. H. Lamb, pages 115-116.

    If the sea level continues to rise, it may someday be as high as 4000 years ago, before mankind’s activities could have had any effect.

    There are millions of people living along the shoreline that know nothing is happening, so to them, this report looks very foolish.

    We all know that Obummer is a vacuum reading only what he is fed … can you believe how ignorant his pimply faced advisors must be.

      Valerie Jarrett? Waaay past pimply … she’s Obama’s gatekeeper, #1 suckup AND moral support all rolled into one. (Don’t take my word for … check my assertions!)

    Sea level rise doubled in 1992. I read about it in National Geogtaphic so it must be true.

    It’s not a hockey stick, it’s a broken cue stick.
