Top Climatologist, Judith Curry, has just released a new report that is devastating to man-made climate change.
Curry claims that the current, and minute, sea level changes are not abnormal and not due to man-made causes.
The changes were occurring long before any rises in CO2 emisdions.
The Washington Times reports:
In her latest paper, Ms. Curry found that the current rising sea levels are not abnormal, nor can they be pinned on human-caused climate change, arguing that the oceans have been on a “slow creep” for the last 150 years — before the post-1950 climb in carbon-dioxide emissions.
“There are numerous reasons to think that projections of 21st-century sea level rise from human-caused global warming are too high, and some of the worst-case scenarios strain credulity,” the 80-page report found.
Her Nov. 25 report, “Sea Level and Climate Change,” which has been submitted for publication, also found that sea levels were actually higher in some regions during the Holocene Climate Optimum — about 5,000 to 7,000 years ago.
“After several centuries of sea level decline following the Medieval Warm Period, sea levels began to rise in the mid-19th century,” the report concluded. “Rates of global mean sea level rise between 1920 and 1950 were comparable to recent rates. It is concluded that recent change is within the range of natural sea-level variability over the past several thousand years.”
This study is in line with so many others we have covered here at Joe For America. There are a plethora of studies that show many of the predictions are either false, or greatly exaggerated. In fact, most of the major predictions from 10-20 years ago, just did not happen.
Curry is the former chair of the Georgia Tech School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, she represents one of the biggest names on the so-called “skeptic” side of the climate debate.
She has been very accurate in the past. We all remember Al Gore predicting that the Arctic would be gone years ago. Not only is it still here, it is growing.
What they did not tell you at the time was that while the Arctic ice cap was contracting, Antarctica was expanding.
You might have seen recent reports about the Antarctic contracting now. See a pattern?
Curry stated in 2013:
“the narrative of the ‘spiral of death’ for the sea ice has been broken … It remains unclear as to what extent the decline in sea ice over the past decades is caused by natural variability versus greenhouse warming. Whether the increase in 2013 is a one year blip in a longer declining trend, or whether it portends a break in this trend remains to be seen.”
I would just encourage you to do your own research. I have been debating this issue for almost two decades.
I’ve seen every study, both sides. What I can tell you is that there has been a LOT of manipulation of data. All on the man-made climate change side of the aisle.
In fact, in Al Gore’s movie, An Inconvenient Truth, there were 35 documented lies. Nine of which were so egregious that Great Britain would not let the documentary be shown in public schools.
