Remember the famous speech by then-Senator Obama in 2008, in which he declared that his election would cause the oceans to stop rising and the planet to heal?
“As it turns out,” says the Washington Examiner, “this is one of the few promises Obama has kept. Or at least, the oceans have kept it for him.”
Earlier this month, Marc Morano at Climate Depot announced that the European Space Agency’s Envisat monitoring, global sea level revealed a “two year long decline [in sea level] was continuing, at a rate of 5mm per year.”
And in August 2011, NASA announced that global sea level was dropping and was “a quarter of an inch lower than last summer.” See: NASA: ‘Global sea level this summer is a quarter of an inch lower than last summer‘
The latest global drop in sea level followed NASA’s Feb 2011 announcement that sea level had also declined in 2010.
Wonder when Mr. Obama will start parting the seas?
