Terrifying Sea Level Rise In Sydney Harbor

Over the past 60 years, sea level in Sydney Harbor may have risen as much as an inch.  Or perhaps less.

    Oh, you show pictures from one side and the ocean must be higher on the other….

    So have a couple of tokes, kick back, have someone else pay, and
    …..it all makes (insane, brain-damaged) sense?!?
    (don’t read the propaganda site Reuter’s News, the report on brain damage will confuse)

    The peak of (i guess it is about) 1977 is as high as the one of 2005.

    Seems Sea level rise has not realised that scientists changed their tune
    from ice age to warming and is rising as slow as it always has in the last centuries.
    And considering how much(and many times) gigantic ice massess in the ant arctic&greenland and all the perma ice and glaciers have molten according to the official news one should expect a minimum of 1 yeard increase in sea level.
    Where is all this water gone?Stolen by martians?
    Hidden by Trump in his garage
    or in the huge void that was formerly known as integrity of science?

    PS-
    the overall sea level can very well be measured by the shading of the ‘stones’
    of buildings etc.
    Until the point water reaches the stones frequently the color/shading is significantly darker than the rest that is permanently exposed to the sun.

    Around Sydney coastline, there are numerous tidal baths built in the late 1890’s and early 1900’s that still exist today, defying the ‘accelerating’ sea level rise (sarc). Here is a recent aerial shot compared with a photo taken in 1910 of Wylie’s Baths at Coogee, Sydney, where I learnt to swim in 1951 at the age of 6 years. It was built in 1907. I imagine it will still be used for swimming lessons in another 100 year’s time.

    Gees, didn’t you know that all that sea level rise is happening where no-one can see it.

    The oceans are all bulging in the middle, ya see.

      Slappin’ myself on the forehead, it’s bulging in the middle! Now THAT makes perfect sense! 8-) Nature is just fooling with us, again- what a rascal. And I’ve SEEN swells when I’ve been on a boat. Boy, I feel dumb as dirt ;-) And just in case you wondered, I DO know that C02 is plant food.

    The clouds in the old B&W pic were repeated in the top 1/4 the image.

    It’s actually Sydney HARBOUR or more correctly the Tide Gauge at Fort Denison. It’s a name, ie a proper noun and has to be spelt (spelled?) correctly. One wouldn’t write Pearl Harbour would one?

  7. spangled drongo says:

    And the nearest GPS chip suggests it is sinking at a similar rate.

    IOW, nothing happening.

    In SE Queensland, ~ 1000 klm to the north, sea levels have actually fallen over the last 70 years.

    A 150 foot long sea wall I built in 1963 to the old king tide datum [AHD 100] is now 6 inches above current king tide levels.

    Many other identifiable and measurable benchmarks show there is no sea level rise.

    Just as Nils Axel Morner has always said.

    • Paul says:

      Maybe the water fell from Queensland to Sydney harbour. That’s why Fort Denison is under threat of sinking as the pictures clearly show…. are people actually paid to come up with this stuff…. ?????

    damn I just bought a house in penrith thinking it would be a waterfront suburb in 40 years and now I’m thinking it wasn’t a good investment
    I hope you are all wrong

    Melting glaciers and icebergs do not cause the seal level to rise. Those things have volume and displace water, when they melt they just replace the volume of the object.
