“The longest NOAA tide gauge data record is at the Battery, New York with a 160 year long measurement period. This location along with all other U.S. coastal locations show no sea level rise acceleration.”
“Climate alarmists continue to try and mislead the public by claiming that the Statue of Liberty is in “imminent jeopardy” because of rising sea levels but the unchanging rate of sea level rise present at the Battery would require more than 20,000 years to cover the base. That time period hardly qualifies as “imminent jeopardy”.”
It is well to remind readers that if there were a trend of increasing global warming caused by the increasing atmospheric CO2 concentration that results from the increased combustion of fossil fuels by humans that began during the industrial revolution, then, if that were true, water in the oceans would be expanding and an acceleration in the rise of sea level would be measured. The fact that there is no acceleration is yet another confirmation that there is no increased global warming due to humans.
