New Video : “Is Manhattan Going To Drown Due To Global Warming”

I explain the brainless superstition and junk science behind claims that humans control sea level.

    Interesting that you would use Churchill Manitoba as an example. Did you know that John Church and Neil White decided to not use it in their papers? It’s the only tide gauge for a thousand miles or so and yet they didn’t use it. Why do you suppose that is?

    Here’s the link to their data page
    http://www.cmar.csiro.au/sealevel/sl_data_cmar.html
    where you will find the link to the list of the tide gauges used:

    Here’s the link to the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level’s Churchill tide gauge page
    ftp://ftp.marine.csiro.au/pub/legresy/church_white_gmsl_2011_tg_list.zip
    The annual data
    http://www.psmsl.org/data/obtaining/rlr.annual.data/447.rlrdata
    from the Churchill gauge shows that the record is 79% complete and goes back to 1940.

    You know what Tony? There’s no end to the bullshit that the other side is willing to stoop to.

    If You look at New York there is more to find. Natural variation.

    Is someone trying to fool US ?

    So the average sea level rise is 2.8milimeter

    And climate scientist say these days sea level is rising faster than in the previous 28 centuries.

    When faking data these days “experts” don’t even bother to be creative.
    Instead they simply took the 2.8 mm average
    just removed the point and replaced mm with century.

    • Louis Hooffstetter says:

      The actual average rate of sea level rise is extremely difficult to determine, due to the isostatic adjustments that Tony pointed out in the video. A respected scientist who has studied sea level rise for decades, Nils-Axel Mörner isn’t sure that current sea levels are rising at all:

      And another illuminating video that illustrates just how much ‘apparent’ sea levels are affected by isostatic adjustment is here:

      Nice video Tony; one of your best yet. You should be a science teacher. Keep up the good work!

    And then there is the fact that the lowest coastal areas of Manhattan were “reclaimed” using fill. The city actually sold “water lots” for developers to reclaim with fill.

    “A series of land reclamations, the first of which took place in 1646 under Peter Stuyvesant, who took over as the governor of New Amsterdam colony at the time, expanded the island between one and four blocks on each side.”
