A new government study making the unsupportable claim that sea level rise is accelerating.

    Well done, again, Tony.

    Wonder if the US Geological Survey’s contribution includes forecasts that isostatic rebound and plate tectonics will end in the next few years? That would accelerate sea level rise north of Philadelphia, all along North & South America’s west coasts and around Europe;-}

    One can logically attribute to climate alarmism claims isostatic rebound and plate tectonics will end. But, an informed, thinking, objective mind can NOT expect natural forces to end either by 2050–or even 2250.

    Hi Tony.
    Once again the recent 2022 CSIRO-BoM State of Climate fails to disappoint for the alarmists.
    1) Sea Levels
    “Global mean sea level rise is accelerating. Tide gauge and satellite altimetry observations show that the rate of global mean sea level rise increased from 1.5 ± 0.2 cm per decade (1901–2000) to 3.5 ± 0.4 cm per decade (1993–2021). The dominant cause of global mean sea level rise since 1970 is anthropogenic climate change.”
    2) Surface Temperatures
    “Australia has warmed, on average, by 1.47 ± 0.24 °C since national records began in 1910. There has been an increase in extreme heat events associated with the warming.”
    1910 !!! Of course we know that monthly temperature and many daily observations from the 1850s are published on the BoM website, which they purposely ignore.
    * There has been an increase in extreme fire weather, and in the length of the fire season, across large parts of Australia since the 1950s. This has led to larger and more frequent fires, especially in southern Australia.”
    Wrong- this refers to the ACORN/homogenized temp series not the RAW temp series.
    3) Rainfall
    “Heavy rainfall events are becoming more intense.”
    “60 per cent of hydrologic reference stations around Australia show a declining trend in streamflow.” Yet we are in a wet La Nina phase with widespread flooding. Dams are full.
    4) Ocean acidification
    ” The acidification of the oceans around Australia continues (pH is decreasing), with changes happening faster in recent decades.• Increasing CO2 in the atmosphere will continue to drive ocean acidification, with the greatest changes in
    temperate and cooler waters in the south.”
    5) Under Future (climate predictions).
    “Fewer tropical cyclones, but a greater proportion is projected to be of high intensity, with large variations from year to year.”
    Yet their online graph (1970-2021) shows severe cyclones in the Australian region are rapidly decreasing.
    There is more which you can access at.
