“CLIMATE CHANGE made sea levels FALL in 2010 and 2011
Global warming and climate change are usually thought to mean that world sea levels will rise, perhaps disastrously. But according to US government boffins, in recent times (2010 and 2011, to be precise) phenomena driven by human carbon emissions have actually caused world sea levels to fall.
The seas have, of course, been rising steadily as the climate has changed for thousands of years, ever since the end of the last ice age. During the 20th century, according to estimates mostly from erratic tide gauges, sea levels rose by around 1.7mm a year. Since the early 1990s, satellites have also been used to measure sea levels, and by contrast have suggested a steady unchanging rise of about 3mm annually – that is, until 2010.
According to a statement issued yesterday by the US National Science Foundation:
For an 18-month period beginning in 2010, the oceans mysteriously dropped by about seven millimeters.”
It’s funny they are releasing this story right now just as momentum is building in Australia to vote against the carbon taxes that have been costing their tax payers billions the last few years. The estimate is next years carbon tax price tag in Australia will be around $2.5 billion.
Seriously, who in America still wants to listen to these political nuts?….it’s a tax on air people and their stories are more than far fetched.
You will feel this when you pay for your electricity service and natural gas because it will be a tax on energy.
It’s important that you help me out here in calling this stuff out as the mass media is not doing their job.
Just as the people in Australia have momentum building to vote against the carbon tax it would seem the politicians are making up a new story that allows them to say global warming both causes sea levels to rise and fall.
It seems they can make up almost any story and the green do-gooders will buy it everytime.
The least I can do is attempt to set things straight.
