Rise in sea level can't be stopped: scientists
Rising sea levels threaten about a tenth of the world's population who live in low-lying areas and islands which are at risk of flooding, including the Caribbean, Maldives and Asia-Pacific island groups.
I’ve resisted playing tag with you on this fraud, lovuian, for some time now.
Nevertheless, against my better judgement I’ll respond on this occasion.
The errors in the article you quote are many. Let me give you a couple of examples.1. “as ice caps and glaciers melt”
says the article…..
Well, it might not have been a lie if the singular ‘icecap’ were used, as the Antarctic Ice Cap is not melting, it’s growing. As it stands the statement in the article is a lie.

No diminution there is there?
And as far as the North Pole is concerned this might also be of interest:USS Skate at the North Pole 1959.
A crew member aboard the “USS Skate” which surfaced at the North Pole in 1959 and numerous other locations during Arctic cruises in 1958 and 1959 said:
“the Skate found open water both in the summer and following winter. We surfaced near the North Pole in the winter through thin ice less than 2 feet thick. The ice moves from Alaska to Iceland and the wind and tides causes open water as the ice breaks up. The Ice at the polar ice cap is an average of 6-8 feet thick, but with the wind and tides the ice will crack and open into large polynyas (areas of open water), these areas will refreeze over with thin ice. We had sonar equipment that would find these open or thin areas to come up through, thus limiting any damage to the submarine. The ice would also close in and cover these areas crushing together making large ice ridges both above and below the water. We came up through a very large opening in 1958 that was 1/2 mile long and 200 yards wide. The wind came up and closed the opening within 2 hours. On both trips we were able to find open water. We were not able to surface through ice thicker than 3 feet.”
And we know how badly wrong the IPCC was on the Himalayan glaciers don't we. Remember "Glaciergate". That's not to say that some glaciers are not retreating - they are, and have been ever since the end of the Little Ice Age.2. “low-lying areas and islands which are at risk of flooding, including the Caribbean, Maldives and Asia-Pacific island groups”
says the article. This is a straight out lie.
Please read Nils-Axel Morner's open letter to President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives again:viewtopic.php?p=49828#p49828Edited

Nothing has changed.3. “A lot of climate research shows that rising greenhouse gas emissions are responsible for ……..a sea level rise of about 2.3mm a year from 2005-2010”
says the article.
This is refuted in many pieces of work, including that of P. J. Watson, Principal Coastal Specialist, NSW Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water , Australia, who says in a peer reviewed article published just last year:
“The Australasian region has four very long, continuous tide gauge records, at Fremantle (1897), Auckland (1903), Fort Denison (1914), and Newcastle (1925), which are invaluable for considering whether there is evidence that the rise in mean sea level is accelerating over the longer term at these locations in line with various global average sea level time-series reconstructions. These long records have been converted to relative 20-year moving average water level time series and fitted to second-order polynomial functions to consider trends of acceleration in mean sea level over time. The analysis reveals a consistent trend of weak deceleration at each of these gauge sites throughout Australasia over the period from 1940 to 2000. Short period trends of acceleration in mean sea level after 1990 are evident at each site, although these are not abnormal or higher than other short-term rates measured throughout the historical record.”

Climate modelling always seems to produce a much more alarmist result than the empirical evidence ever shows. The figures in the article are a forecast of a future rise on the back of the consistently demonstrated failure of climate models’ projections to match the eventual empirical measurements. It's not the first time. None of the models work.
Here is an example of just how good the “climate” scientist’s predictions are:
Fifteen years from 1986 is 2001. The Medieval Warm Period still holds the record.
The so-called climate 'scientists" are very bad at their jobs. The lousy quality research is a product of the post-modern education systems that infect most western nations and the corruption and hegemony that comes with big government research funding.
