Sea Levels Around The US Aren’t Just Rising, They’re Accelerating Year on Year
Even the Washington Post knows that the Gulf Coast is sinking.
Scientists say the rapid sinking of Louisiana’s coast already counts as a ‘worst case scenario’ – The Washington Post
Sea Level Trends – NOAA Tides & Currents
Sea level is Alaska is dropping rapidly. There is no indication that sea level rise rates are accelerating anywhere around the US. If they were, there would be an upwards curvature.

Tabloid journalism used to be relegated to supermarket checkout lines. And everyone knew what it was.
True, but it could be much worse. Imagine what these science journalists would write if they got ahold of the rapid sea level rise data from gauges at some ocean-going ships.
I don’t even want to think about it.
Thanks for this insightful observation. I knew that SOME tide gauges must be showing extraordinary rises, since there are so many that don’t, but until your post, I couldn’t imagine which ones.
But why do you think it isn’t already worse, or specifically, that the data on which “science journalists” base their reports has significantly higher quality?
Worse then what?
Rewrite your question please.
In following that bouncing ball from whence it came, it appears to me the answer to your question to GCS lies in the first line in the above post, The amount of fraud in this article is off scale.
Speaking of rewrites, I believe what you actually meant to actually ask is, ‘Worse than what?’ “Then” is a point in time.
Please forgive the word redundancy in my entry.
They may be using submarines…
We can’t get the sea level to rise more than 0.65 mm per annum in Sydney. It’s been the same for a hundred years.
Get that water to rise down under there, and fast! Or Greta will get you!
If You are looking for acceleration use the graph available :
Hard to see acceleration in these graphs-periodic change!
We could start with the sentence “look, sea levels are ______ all over America”. Any hack could come along, fill in the blank, and then hand-pick a small number of tide gauges to compare with the previous year, and claim proof. How completely and utterly unscientific.
In the 1980s (or early ’90s) when we were still watching television, there was a NOVA ( I think.) program about the problems of the Lower Mississippi Delta. Much of the information was not new to me, but I remember a segment about Menhaden . . .
. . . with tons of small fish loaded into a large ship. I recall the point of the segment was that the lower Delta was the early-life location of this fish and many others.
Wikipedia says: “menhaden occur anywhere from estuarine waters outward to the continental shelf; menhaden grow in less saline waters of estuaries and may be found in bays and lagoons, as well as at river mouths;”
The sediment depths of the coastal area are on the order of 50,000 feet. Gravity, biological, and chemical reactions result in compression, thus sinking of the area.
This is all very interesting – and not a good place to construct large buildings – but it is not new and not related to global warming.
The lead article by Carly Cassella references John Boon (marine science type). These folks seem clueless – members of the Climate Cult. No hope for them.
Not to mention all the levees along the Mississippi that stop the annual floods from happening and replenishing the delta with fresh sediment in a natural manner.
Why do journalists spread misinformation like this? Are they so desperate to make a story out of nothing? Still, at least she didn’t jump on the bandwagon of ‘climate change’.
Let me get this right. All seas that are connected should show an equal rise if it was for reasons of ice melting from land. Rising seas locally is due to land sinking and this is mostly man-made. Like here in Sweden, in the Bothnic sea, land is rising as effect of the inland ice that is gone. The Maldives are not sinking..? Anything wrong with this reasoning?
land can rise to tectonic shifts and volcanoes
Disparate weather and air pressure patterns, El Ninos – La Nina’s, 18 year lunar cycles, etc…
Lots of reasons it varies all over.
Tony, I’ve had a look over the tides and currents data. Do you have any idea why the NOAA data hasn’t been updated for stations outside of the United States since early 2019?
For that matter, any idea why sealevel.colorado.edu stopped updating in 2018? Or why JASON-3 hasn’t released data since July of 2019?
Any truth to these claims?
Your opinion would be greatly appreciated.
1. Flow calculations like atmospheric hydrodynamics are famously difficult. The Navier-Stokes equation describing flow of simple fluids is itself a mathematical classic. Out of curiosity, I wonder in how much detail even these computers could describe decay of eddies of water formed by stirring a pot.
2. Funding is a bit of a p*****g contest: give us more money or else those (your favorite villains) will outpace us. Intrinsically, everybody wants more $$$, not just because they need it, but also because grantsmanship is a matter of career life-and-death. If you can’t think of a good reason why you deserve more $$$, you’ll lose prestige and perish. After all, if you get a lot of money, you must be important, so you must deserve more, etc. You simply can’t afford to be too responsible.
3. FWIW, I think a sensible policy would be to work on designing a super computer based on expected (yes, moving target) chip technology say 10-20 years hence, so you have blueprints ready to go. In the meantime, see if all that extra computing powers the Europeans have actually generate better predictions or simply more papers. Success or failure in the latter area might indicate that we need better science more than we need better slide rules, and would better inform allocation of resources.
4. I suspect the juggernaut will continue to roll on, because politics and cronyism dominate when cultural ethics fall as far as they have.
5. Antidotes: people like Tony revealing the truth, and people like us to spread it, Like the Italians in Machiavelli’s Prince, if enough people get upset, our rulers will take notice and modify their misbehavior to a less despicable level.
Follow the money….. these climate fraudsters just received a big boost from bezos to the tune of 10 billion. Why do the hard work of study and research when the easy money goes to the con?
if sea level is sea level — and water redistributes around the globe to make for a 1 value “sea level”, wouldn’t more water indicate that levels are rising all over, albeit not uniformly?
If see levels are dropping in Alaska (relative to the coastline), could this instead mean that the land is rising?
Sea Level Rise alarmism is rising. Paul Homewood dissects a different misleading, dishonest article.
Let me start with how much I like your YouTubes and believe you are very credible. However, looking at your charts in this video, it appears to me that LINEAR trending is being used to draw the lines. Is that true? *If* that is the case, the lines would never curve upward on the right, or anywhere else. Upward movement in the data on the right would simply cause the line to tilt more up on the right and down at the left. Are you using linear curve-fitting or something more sophisticated that could show a curve up at the right end?
Lies, Lies, Lies.
The Louisiana coast and MS River delta is sinking because sediments that used to replenish the delta are stored/trapped behind levees along the MS River, behind dams on the Missouri River, and because of the canals cut through the delta. Has nothing to do w sea level rise and there is little that can be done to reverse these things at least in the near term.
