Then, from 1900 to 2000, the seas rose 5.5 inches—a significant increase, especially for low-lying coastal areas. And since 1993, the rate has soared to a foot per century.
(Of course, we are supposed to believe that there are no errors in the interpretation of the data used for the previous three millenia : “a database of geological sea-level indicators from marshes, coral atolls, and archaeological sites around the world”….. Just like there are no errors in the temperature datasets from the last century )
I guess that there isn’t any funding if you don’t say that the end of the world is NOT coming tomorrow……
Basic geometry demonstrates the lie. Many coastal areas would be flooded permanently by a five inch rise in sea level and a foot per century since 1993*, would be clearly obvious to anyone. I call bullshit. Show me the beach houses with waves lapping at the steps that were formerly well back from the tide line.
Using data for a short period to make general conclusions is idiotic. That is like saying that last thunderstorm, if it keeps raining, will bring us six feet of rain over the next month.
Accuracy… It's not real good… Just sayin…
