What Alarming Sea Level Rise? Observational Data Reveals No Change, Scientist Says

CHICAGO -- Global warming advocates say rising sea levels will soon drown Venice. But a top scientist says they're full of hot air -- and he says he’s got the data to prove it.

In a new scientific paper, Nils-Axel Morner, former emeritus head of the paleogeophysics and geodynamics department at Stockholm University in Sweden, says that observational records from around the world -- locations like the Maldives, Bangladesh, India, Tuvalu and Vanuatu -- show the sea level isn't rising at all.

Morner's research, revealed Monday at the fourth International Conference on Climate Change, demonstrates that there is no “alarming sea level rise” across the globe, and it says a U.N. report warning of coastal cities being deluged by rising waters from melting polar ice caps “is utterly wrong.”

  • Surprise Surprise. Face it the eco-nuts don't care what studies find. They just know they are right and will bash and smash anyone who dares offer a counter to their "false" findings.

  • Does that mean Al Gore needs to change his mockumentary? LOL

  • Oh WAIT, Al Gore already knew that. That is why he just bought himself that beach front Mega-Mansion.

  • I'm not surprised.

  • There is no alarming rise in sea level , that is true, but sea levels are rising . The problem is compounded by the slow sinking of some coastal cities, such as New Orleans and Venice. As for beach front mansions, they are more in danger from the increasing severity of hurricanes , rather than the rise in sea level . Apparently there has been no increase in the frquency of hurricanes , but the number reaching tjhe highest categories has increased.
