The Dutch and the Sea Level Rise

Technical Rating: star
There is currently a debate in the Netherlands about the future rate of sea level rise. Independent researchers estimate that the sea level will rise 20 cm to the end of the century, while the IPCC expects about 50 cm. A government commission recommends an expenditure of 80 billion euros over the next 40 years to raise dikes based on a high case sea level rise prediction of 110 cm by 2100.



Highly Over-Hyped: Greenland's and Antarctica's Impacts on Sea Level

Technical Rating: star
Sherwood, Keith and Craig Idso of CO2 Science examnes recent claims that recent discharges of glacial ice from Greenland and Antarctica may accelerate sea level rise. They show that there has been no net loss of ice at either location that would contribute to sea level rise.



Global Sea Level: 1950-2000

Technical Rating: star
A short document summarizing a study by Church et al, 2004. The best estimate" of the rate of globally-averaged sea level rise over the last half of the 20th century is 1.8 +/- 0.3 mm yr-1. They further note that "to date there is no detectable secular increase in the rate of sea level rise over the period 1950-2000."



Claim That Sea Level Is Rising Is a Total Fraud

Technical Rating: star
An interview with Dr. Nils-Axel Morner. Dr. Morner is the head of the Paleogeophysics and Geodynamics department at Stockholm University in Sweden. He is past president (1999-2003) of the INQUA Commission on Sea Level Changes and Coastal Evolution, and leader of the Maldives Sea Level Project. He shows that the IPCC projections of sea level rise are "nonsense".



Decadal Rates of Sea Level Change During the Twentieth Century

Technical Rating: star
A summary by the Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory, Liverpool, UK. It shows that the first half of the 20th century (1904-1953) had a slightly higher rate of sea level rise (1.91 mm/yr) in comparison with the second half of the century (1.42 mm/yr 1954-2003).
