Fake Sea Level Rise Approved by NASA in Climate Fraud

By John O’Sullivan

NASA researchers admit adding fake inches to sea level rises. Skeptics denounce desperate attempt to salvage government global warming policies.

In a disturbing development in the ongoing global warming fiasco the U.S. government-funded Sea Level Research Group has been given a green light from NASA to exaggerate sea level rises way above actual recorded measurements. The reason? So that policy makers can falsely blame humans for adding to natural rises in sea levels.

Land Mass Rise Used as Excuse to Fiddle Data

The NASA-funded Sea Level Research Group is based at the University of Colorado. It made the announcement last week that it will begin adding a nonexistent 0.3 millimeters per year to its Global Mean Sea Level Time Series.

Reporting in Forbes Magazine on this farce is James M. Taylor, senior fellow for environment policy at The Heartland Institute. Taylor pinpoints that NASA’s reason for this latest trick is to “compensate” for rising land mass.

Most folk have now cottoned onto the shenanigans of government paid climatologists since Climategate. In 2009 a clique of secretive scientists were caught fudging world temperatures to make it appear the earth was warming unnaturally when it wasn’t.

But with interest in global warming now bottoming to a 20-year low desperate new measures are being dreamt up to scare voters into accepting more tax rises to stem non-existent ‘human caused climate change.’

Now government ‘experts’ claim they need to add the bogus extra 0.3 millimeters each year onto satellite measurements of our ocean levels, which will conjure up an 1.2 inches over the course of the 21st century, to ‘compensate’ for the rise in land which has been occurring without any human interference since the end of the last ice age 11,000 years ago.

Last Ice Age Melting Still Changing Our Planet

Back then Manhattan and most of England was buried under one mile of ice that compressed the ground like squeezing water from a sponge. Over time the land has slowly been springing back up as the weight of billions of tons of ice has melted.

Taylor points out that this steady pace of an 8-inch rise in sea levels for the last century is very much in line with previous rates of sea level rise during our current Holocene interglacial period.

But Taylor, managing editor of Environment & Climate News adds, “with an artificially enhanced 9.2 inches of sea level rise, alarmists can claim sea level is rising 31 percent faster than it did last century.”

He notes, “While this is not monumental in and of itself, it will allow alarmists to paint a dramatically different picture of sea level rise than is occurring in the real world.”

Skeptics are accusing NASA of needless fiddling to bail out the discredited United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which had hyped computer model guesstimates that we’d see 15 inches of sea level rise during the 21st century, which is double the rate recorded over the past century.

Even Al Gore No Longer Believes Sea Level Spin

However, rises in global temperatures have also stopped since the start of the 21st century and global cooling appears to have set in; according to independent researchers we may be on the cusp of a new ice age. Another clue that the global warming cult is on it’s last legs comes from former U.S. President, Al Gore, who first whipped up the frenzy about catastrophic sea level rises in his film, ‘An Inconvenient Truth;’  Gore is now the proud owner of a $9 million oceanfront villa in Montecito, California.

As the old saying goes, ‘follow the money’ and with so little real world data to back up increasingly discredited climate alarmism public interest in the global warming doomsaying continues to fall off a cliff.

    Don’t forget Gore bought a $4 million waterfront condo in San Francisco. With two CA waterfront properties, purchased for over $13 million, it appears Gore has little fear of SLR.
    In the ten years since he left his low-paying VP job, his net worth has increased from $2 million to over $20 million. Who says becoming the world’s biggest AGW advocate is not financially rewarding? Of course much of this wealth has been at the expense of the world’s middle class and the poor. Isn’t putting corn into your auto’s gas tank while worldwide starvation exists rather like a crime against humanity…..way to go Al.

    The Nature Conservancy’s Coastal Resilience Program depends on max sea level. They are working with Goddard in NY and Hansen has just come out with 16′ “almost certain” by 2100. So just what we needed was another 1.2 inches to add to 16′ although they have only acknowledged about 6′. The N/C is reluctantly, yeah right, consenting to voluntary acquisition of your property if it is to be underwater. How gracious of them. As sea level is tapering off. As temperatures are starting to go down. As we decend into a cooling period, that land will be prime waterfront property. They will make a killing. Bet they demand rights out to 200 ft at least, to capitalize on the newly exposed land to come. Putting on a rebuttle on this, May17 at 7pm in Guilford CT at the Community Center for those in the area. Please excuse the shameless promotion.

  3. I beg to differ. This is not “faking” because one would not proclaim a fake openly on one’s website. Calling this a fake does not pass the smell test. It is an adjustment, and a small one at that. If you don’t like adjustments, then please complain also when scientists adjust temperatures downward to account for urban heat islands. Oh, but you’re OK with that adjustment, but this adjustment is “faking”. I get it.

    The stolen emails did not expose a hoax. It exposed some mild misconduct by a few people, not a large scale hoax.

    Anyway, it doesn’t matter. CO2 will continue to rise and we’ll live with the consequences. Simple as that. It has nothing to do with property values. Gore will be long gone before any effect is noticeable. All I can say is, I hope you are right and there’s no harm.

    I”m a skeptic as well but Gore buying waterfront property was debunked awhile ago. .
