The prominent progressive magazine The Nation published an article today claiming the current trajectory for sea level rise is 20-or-more feet during the next 100 to 200 years.
Unfortunately for The
Nation, but fortunately for objective truth and climate realism,
the current trajectory for sea level rise is merely 1 foot per
The Nation article, titled "How Warming Oceans are Accelerating the Climate Crisis," claims,
The article also claims,
According to NASA and NOAA satellite instruments, sea level is rising at a mere 3 millimeters per year, which is a pace of,
(Note: the NASA/NOAA-reported 3.3 mm/year rise in Global Mean Sea Level includes a 0.3 mm "adjustment" that accounts for land rising as glaciers melt. The sea-level rise in relation to coastal shorelines is therefore 3.0 mm/year.)
Moreover, the satellite measurements show no significant acceleration during recent decades in the pace of sea-level rise.
Given that seas are rising at a pace of merely one foot per century, which is little if any faster than the pace of sea-level rise throughout the global warming of the 1800s and 1900s, it is almost certain that seas will not rise '20 feet' during the next 100 to 200 years.
Climate activists simply making stuff up, with the media then reporting on the made-up B.S. as if it is settled science, is par for the course these days in media coverage of the climate debate.
However, when judging the relative credibility of climate activists versus climate realists, The Nation article provides an objective measuring stick by which people can assess credibility and so-called "settled science."
Climate activists and your lackey media,
