One thing $29 billion peer-reviewed climate science never does is double check their propaganda. There is too much money at stake to tell the truth.

    I guess we know where all the heat went!

    It is clever using Antarctica. I mean who lives there except climate scientists and penguins? And the penguins ain’t talkin’.

    • R Shearer says:

      And the scientists say don’t believe a word that penguin says.

      • au1corsair says:

        Good thing that global warming “scientists” are stupid or else they’d travel to South Africa and tell the world what they found in Antarctica.;_ylt=A0LEVrfBXf5UF2sALEwPxQt.;_ylu=X3oDMTB0N25ndmVnBHNlYwNzYwRjb2xvA2JmMQR2dGlkA1lIUzAwNF8x?p=south+african+penguin&tnr=21&vid=ECC92A948A2D135120C8ECC92A948A2D135120C8&l=102&

        Look at all the green stuff with penguins!

  2. Oh, yes, they are …

    • Steve Case says:

      Penguins of Madagascar was really really bad. I expected something cute like that “Minions” flick, but it was just mindless. We walked out after about a half hour.

      • That’s depressing. I was counting on them to tell the truth.

        Did they go for NYT approval instead? Did Skipper get full of himself like Muller and said he was never a skeptic? Did Rico, Kowalski and Private go along with it?

  3. SxyxS says:

    You are wrong.
    The water is hiding all over north america disguised as global warming snow that is covering your country right now.

  4. The truth and evidence is such a nuisance to these alarmists!

  5. Steve Case says:

    Speaking of Colorado University’ Sea Level Research Group

    If you go to the Internet Archive’s WayBack Machine:
    and plug in the URL for Colorado Universty’s Sea Level Research Group
    You will find records that go back to 2004 The earliest functional “mean sea level time series” link is from March 27th of that year, and if you follow that link through to “Inverted Barometer Applied” and “Seasonal Signals Removed” and click on text
    you will find the data as it existed for 1992.928 thru 2003.842 It’s then rather simple to download the series into Excel and find the slope. It comes out to be 2.6 mm/yr If you then go to Colorado University’s Sea Level Research Unit today and dowload the “Raw data (ASCII)”
    You will find that the same series for 1992.96 through 2003.846 comes out to be 3.5 mm/yr. Somehow over the last ten years the data has been changed. What had been 2.6 mm/yr in 2003 is now 3.5 mm/yr. An increase of 0.9 mm/yr.

    Looks like this:
    If you ask Colorado University about these changes they say:

    “The sea level time series release from 2004 is over eight years old, and in that time many parts of the TOPEX and Jason-1 processing have been updated to reflect instrument and ancillary data improvements. Without recreating each processing change over the last eight years, We cannot point to any specific update that is the main cause of the differences between the 2004 and the current release. But a partial list of the more influential updates include:

    – updated orbits
    – updated radiometer corrections
    – updated tide models
    – updated sea state bias models
    – updated dynamic atmosphere

    “A review of the release notes shows how we continually apply what the altimeter science community considers to be the most up-to-date set of processing parameters.”

    • RossP says:

      Well done Steve. My BS detector went high alert reading the reply you got from Colorado University.

    • emsnews says:

      All data improvements make things hotter today and colder yesterday and oceans higher today and lower yesterday.

      Simple dynamic to get computers to do this, of course.

    • David A says:

      I also recall a very flat period around 2006. Then they wet off line and missed several updates. When they came back, the flat spot was gone. Is it possible to find an earlier version of the 205 through 2007 period?

      • Steve Case says:

        I’ve thought about an FOI request. I would like to think that there is someone out there who has saved them

  6. etudiant says:

    At an inch per decade, there should be a very visible sea level rise evident around the world, as there are many sites and structures that are centuries old.
    Yet the mean sea level mark chiseled into the rock on the Isle of the Dead in 1841 by Capt. Ross, of Ross Ice Shelf fame is at least three feet above the current sea level.
    Tasmania is not volcanic afaik and there were never any glaciers in the area, so no post glacial rebound.
    What gives? Where is the missing sea level rise?

  7. sabretoothed says:

    How do we get a sea level of earth in mm? Seriously?

  8. Climatism says:

    Reblogged this on Climatism and commented:
    No acceleration of the ‘rate’ of sea level rise since 1850 either…

  9. If Antarctica is contributing to sea level rise, then it must have been this way for centuries because sea level rise since 1850 is as linear as a bowling alley.

  10. SMS says:

    Why don’t you just ask Hope why sea level isn’t rising as predicted? She would have an answer that would scare all of us. Not on the data, but how naïve and ill informed she is.

  11. Tom Harley says:

    Google’s CEO is out there off West Australia, searching for it right now!

    • gator69 says:

      “These species are highly sensitive to ocean acidification, such as from the carbon dioxide channeled down into deep oceans [via the canyon],” he says.

      I’m trying to follow the illogic. More CO2 means more warming, which means more outgassing of CO2, and ocean acidification, Rinse and repeat.

      • Chewer says:

        Fresh water is “acidic” as determined by the PH scale 😉
        In other words, the psychotic warmers do not understand sheet about climate, ocean content or anything geo-physical…

      • Tom Harley says:

        The term ocean ‘acidification’ is BS. All the carbon dioxide in the world cannot make the ocean acidic. Slightly less alkaline, but never acidic.
        There’s enough research to show it’s BS and extra CO2 in the oceans, or in the atmosphere, is beneficial.

      • Tom Harley says:

        “Watch: MIT’s Dr. Richard Lindzen on Fox News: ‘The whole thing is fairly absurd’ – ‘We are demonizing a chemical — a molecule essential to life – CO2′. ” Dr Lindzen.

        • gator69 says:

          Been a longtime fan if Dr Lindzen, and already watched the video.

          And yes, oceans are alkaline and cannot acidify.

        • Tom Harley says:

          It wont stop the scary monster stories by the warmists though. Doesn’t fit the agenda.

  12. Byron says:

    I call BS on this as the Antarctic ice sheet was gaining mass overall at a rate of 49gt/yr up ’till then
    and The Antarctic has cooled since then
    2014 winter also broke cold records at many of the long term bases there

  13. Scott says:

    It’s possible, I mean double could be from 1 ounce to 2 ounces

  14. Yup, the missing heat and catastrophic sea level rise are both hiding in the deep ocean until anthropogenic CO2 emissions end their CAGW denial.

  15. au1corsair says:

    How about this hare-brained flakey notion: heat causes things to expand. Planet Earth is actually expanding because of all that “hidden” heat caused by using fossil fuels. When the carbon dioxide level dips, the backlash will cause the oceans to cover the planet–so repent, sinners!

    I had better keep my day job. The forgoing wasn’t mindless enough. Ted Turner and Al Gore ain’t about to cut me a check for this drivel!

  16. KTM says:

    Tony, you are usually spot on, but in this case you whiffed. They predicted that the rise of the oceans would begin to slow in ~2008/2009.

    • AndyG55 says:

      No, Mr Cnut thought he could control sea level rise. BS !!

      EMPTY rhetoric, that’s all he ever had.

      The planet has become far more TOXIC, politically, while Obummer has been there..

      And he is the major cause.

  17. bwdave says:

    Oceans erode land masses. It seems logical that most of that eroded land ends up at the bottom of the Oceans which should cause some slight overall rise of ocean level.

  18. Skiff says:

    Too bad that the sea-level curve shows that the fabled “global warming pause” is pure BS. At least warming of the seas and the mass-loss of land-ice has been going on unabated since 1998.

  19. Gail Combs says:

    Like everything else touched by the ClimAstrologists. Sea leve has been spindled and mutilated.

    The chart from WIKI is shown by everyone even Steve:

    NOTE: The data is not raw data but adjusted data.

    This figure shows changes in sea level during the Holocene, the time following the end of the most recent glacial period, based on data from Fleming et al. 1998, Fleming 2000, & Milne et al. 2005. These papers collected data from various reports and adjusted them for subsequent vertical geologic motions, primarily those associated with post-glacial continental and hydroisostatic rebound….

    Notice the seal level does nothing but rise. However the actual science shows a different story.

    STUDY #1
    Mid to late Holocene sea-level reconstruction of Southeast Vietnam using beachrock and beach-ridge deposits

    ….backshore deposits along the tectonically stable south-eastern Vietnamese coast document Holocene sea level changes…..reconstructed for the last 8000 years….The rates of sea-level rise decreased sharply after the rapid early Holocene rise and stabilized at a rate of 4.5 mm/year between 8.0 and 6.9 ka. Southeast Vietnam beachrocks reveal that the mid-Holocene sea-level highstand slightly above + 1.4 m was reached between 6.7 and 5.0 ka, with a peak value close to + 1.5 m around 6.0 ka….

    Translation the sea level was up to 1.5 meters higher than today in a tectonically stable area ~5000 years ago to 2000 years ago.

    STUDY #2
    Sea-level highstand recorded in Holocene shoreline deposits on Oahu, Hawaii

    Unconsolidated carbonate sands and cobbles on Kapapa Island, windward Oahu, are 1.4-2.8 (+ or – 0.25) m above present mean sea level (msl)…we interpret the deposit to be a fossil beach or shoreline representing a highstand of relative sea level during middle to late Holocene time. Calibrated radiocarbon dates of coral and mollusc samples, and a consideration of the effect of wave energy setup, indicate that paleo-msl was at least 1.6 (+ or – 0.45) m above present msl prior to 3889-3665 cal. yr B.P, possibly as early as 5532-5294 cal. yr B.P., and lasted until at least 2239-1940 cal. yr B.P

    This study shows a sea level highstand ~1.6 meter above the present level from ~5500 years ago to 2000 years ago.

    STUDY #3
    Late Quaternary highstand deposits of the southern Arabian Gulf: a record of sea-level and climate change

    …..It has therefore been necessary to infer the ages of these sediments by a comparison of their stratigraphy and elevation with deposits known from other parts of the world. We regard this approach as valid because the southern Gulf coastline lacks evidence for significant widespread neotectonic uplift,…….
    …..Widespread evidence exists for a Holocene sea level higher than at present in the southern Arabian Gulf, indicating that it peaked at 1–2 m above present level, c. 5.5 ka bp…….

    This study shows a sea level highstand ~1 to 2 meters above the present level about ~5500 years ago.

    STUDY #4
    The Quaternary Geological History of the Santa Catarina Southeastern Region (Brazil) 1999

    The first part discusses drilling in several locations and analyzing samples. They mention dating prior to that was guesses. “…. A drilling campaign done in the domain permitted the sampling of material for 14C datings, and the obtained data confirmed some previously assumed ages. The sequence of events, that originated the Holocene deposits, has been also reconstructed through drilling and 14C dating of the collected peat and shell samples…”

    In the body of the text is this:

    Partially abutted against the Pleistocene barrier island/lagoonal system III, there is the Holocene depositional system. This unit is attributable to the Santos Transgression of Suguio & Martin (1978), along the State of São Paulo coastline, or to the Last Transgression of Bittencourt et al. (1979) along the State of Bahia coastline, being similar to the barrier island/lagoonal system IV of Villwock et al. (1986), along the State of Rio Grande do Sul coastline.

    This system is related to the post-glacial transgressive episode whose culmination stage was attained about 5.1 ky BP, when a barrier island alignment was formed parallel to the shoreline, while drainage net was drowned. The subsequent regressive episode promoted the barrier island progradation following the lagoonal basin silting.

    The paleoshorelines limited by ancient cliffs carved within Pleistocene terraces, presently representing the inner limit of the Holocene terrace, shows that this sea-level reached about 4m above the present one. Several terraces situated in different altitudes, and truncation of past morphological features nowadays observed on Holocene deposits, as well as along present lagoonal margins suggest that small scale sea-level oscillations occurred during the last 5 ky….

    This study shows a sea level highstand ~ 4 meters above the present level about ~5000 years ago. With sea level oscillating since then. Not only has the sea levels have dropped since the Holocene Optimum the evidence shows that “warmer paleotemperatures were favourable for great proliferation of mollusks in the area”
    Santa Catarina brazil is at latitude 27.2500°S.

    STUDY #5
    Holocene sea-level change and ice-sheet history in the Vestfold Hills, East Antarctica

    A new Holocene sea-level record from the Vestfold Hills, Antarctica, has been obtained by dating the lacustrine–marine and marine–lacustrine transitions that occur in sediment cores from lakes which were formerly connected to the sea. From an elevation of ∼7.5 m 8000 yr ago, relative sea-level rose to a maximum ∼9 m above present sea-level 6200 yr ago. Since then, sea-level has fallen monotonically until the present….

    The above is a RELATIVE sea level. The area is not tectonically stable because the area has isostatic uplift in response to deglaciation from the Wisconsin Ice Age. The same applies to the following study.

    STUDY #6
    A new Holocene relative sea level curve for the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica

    The curve shows a mid-Holocene RSL highstand on Fildes Peninsula at 15.5 m above mean sea level between 8000 and 7000 cal a BP. Subsequently RSL gradually fell as a consequence of isostatic uplift in response to regional deglaciation….

    STUDY #7
    Ice free Arctic Ocean, an Early Holocene analogue

    Extensive systems of wave generated beach ridges along the North Greenland coasts show that these areas once saw seasonally open water. In addition to beach ridges, large amounts of striated boulders in and on the marine sediments from the same period also indicate that the ocean was open enough for ice bergs to drift along the shore and drop their loads. Presently the North Greenland coastline is permanently beleaguered by pack ice, and ice bergs are very rare and locked up in the sea ice. Predictions of the rapidly decreasing sea ice in the Arctic Ocean generally point to this area as the last to become ice free in summer. We therefore suggest that the occurrence of wave generated shores and abundant ice berg dropped boulders indicate that the Arctic Ocean was nearly free of sea ice in the summer at the time when they were formed. The beach ridges occur as isostatically raised “staircases”, and C14-dated curves for relative sea level change show that they were formed in the Early Holocene. A large set of samples of molluscs from beach ridges and marine sediments were collected in the summer of 2007, and are presently being dated to give a precise dating of the ice free interval. Preliminary results indicate that it fell within the interval from c. 8.5 to c. 6 ka – being progressively shorter from south to north. We therefore conclude that for a period in the Early Holocene, probably for a millenium or more, the Arctic Ocean was free of sea ice at least for shorter periods in the summer….

    STUDY #8
    Temperature and precipitation history of the Arctic

    …. Solar energy reached a summer maximum (9% higher than at present) ~11 ka ago and has been decreasing since then, primarily in response to the precession of the equinoxes. The extra energy elevated early Holocene summer temperatures throughout the Arctic 1-3°C above 20th century averages, enough to completely melt many small glaciers throughout the Arctic, although the Greenland Ice Sheet was only slightly smaller than at present. Early Holocene summer sea ice limits were substantially smaller than their 20th century average, and the flow of Atlantic water into the Arctic Ocean was substantially greater. As summer solar energy decreased in the second half of the Holocene, glaciers re-established or advanced, sea ice expanded…

    STUDY #9
    A new approach for reconstructing glacier variability based on lake sediments recording input from more than one glacier January 2012

    …. A multi-proxy numerical analysis demonstrates that it is possible to distinguish a glacier component in the ~ 8000-yr-long record, based on distinct changes in grain size, geochemistry, and magnetic composition…. This signal is …independently tested through a mineral magnetic provenance analysis of catchment samples. Minimum glacier input is indicated between 6700–5700 cal yr BP, probably reflecting a situation when most glaciers in the catchment had melted away, whereas the highest glacier activity [growth] is observed around 600 and 200 cal yr BP. During the local Neoglacial interval (~ 4200 cal yr BP until present), five individual periods of significantly reduced glacier extent are identified at ~ 3400, 3000–2700, 2100–2000, 1700–1500, and ~ 900 cal yr BP….

    STUDY #10
    Sea Level Changes Past Records and Future Expectations

    For the last 40-50 years strong observational facts indicate virtually stable sea level conditions. The Earth’s rate of rotation records an [average] acceleration from 1972 to 2012, contradicting all claims of a rapid global sea level rise, and instead suggests stable, to slightly falling, sea levels.

    Dig, and you find every single talking point of the ClimAstrologists is based on very questionable ‘Adjustments’

  21. Everybody knows that solids are denser than liquids, because solids are colder than liquids. That’s how the heat is hiding at the bottom of the ocean: it’s solid! Science™!
