    Another quote of note
    “If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you’re mis-informed. ”
    Mark Twain

    Nobody expects a Herald Journo (no doubt university indoctrinated rather than apprentice taught how to be a real reporter) to remember what was written at the beginning and the end of the “article”. Back in the day sub-editors would have picked up that error but these days the Herald hires children who know nothing but think they know everything. It’s all a con, Australia’s worst PM bought her retirement beach house in Adelaide despite inundating us with her socialist the seas are rising message. Obozo has bought a beach front house so he must know something with his so well earned Nobel Peace Prize and all.

    A widely quoted “research paper” was retracted from the prestigious magazine Nature.

    The research paper claimed that the oceans were warming faster then first reported. A retired financial person (Nick Lewis) with only a BS degree was apparently able to do math better than several Ph.D who authored the paper. Lewis found that the climate scientist who authored the paper had made a simple math error. The paper (which has been widely quoted in NYT etc) has since been retracted by Nature.

      Also shows how crappy (or corrupt, if you’re more cynical) peer review can be. At least Nature on this occasion had the guts to retract; that’s rare.

      • gregole says:

        So much for peer reviewed papers in prestigious journal written by all the right people.

        A problem with our contemporary climate so called science is it isn’t out to explore or discover anything new. It starts with the assumption that MannMade CO2 causes everything; their papers are tattered together made for media propaganda. These people are wasting their lives.

    Tony,

    As I begin to draw my own conclusions about climate science, your videos have been very useful.

    May I offer a suggestion?

    Can you think of a dozen simple wagers like the famous Ehrlich wager? For example, “I wager that over the next ten years, the sea level on the east coast of the US (or just Manhattan) will rise 2.84 mm/year.” As you’ve taught us, that’s the rate it’s been steadily rising since before the US Civil War.

    If you came up with some very simple wagers that I could make with friends — posturing myself accurately as someone who’s struggling to discern the truth — I could have real effect on dozens of people in my life. It’s been my experience that we all tend to predict what we want to believe, but once we are faced with a wager, we switch into a different mode of thinking.

    Your wagers might even seep into popular discourse. I have no doubt you could come up with several that cannot be gamed.

    Sidney has a long record and is one of the important point to see if ther is an acceleration in the rise.
    And the method is to compare the rise from time to time.
    And yes there is a clear acceleration.
    Use the site in the video and look for 50 years average.
    1910 the rise was 0 mm/year.
    1985 the rise is 0,8 mm/year.

    But the interesting point is 1950 when the rise was 1,6 mm/year.
    Nice waveform for the Aussies to surf on!

    Mini AOC is back!! See this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJnPseMneDU
    She and Greta should have a talk. And thank you so much for YOUR videos, Tony!

  7. Tim H says:

    Tony, fairly early in this video you say that all the oceans are interconnected so sea level rise will be the same every where.

    When they built the Panama Canal they had to put in locks because the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans are not at the same level.

    The Fort Dennison graph says that sea level rise averaged 0.65 mm/year. The Battery, NY, graph says the average rise was 2.85 mm/year. So your own graphs appear to contradict your statement.

    What am I missing?

    • tonyheller says:

      Lake elevation is different at one end than the other. But a one foot increase would be seen at both ends.
      I suggest that you learn the difference between speed and acceleration.
      The highest elevations of the Panama Canal are well above sea level. That is why they have locks.

      But thanks for your attempt at disinformation.

      What are you missing?

      Geography lessons. LOL
