Although the IPCC has predicted that sea levels will rise 100 cm by the year 2100, actual measurements do not bear out that conclusion.
A.A. Boretti, an Australian scientist who has studied satellite radar altimeter data covering the past 20 years, discovered that the average rate of sea level rise is just under 3.2 mm a year. That rate would cause a sea levels rise of just under 32 cm (12½ inches) by the year 2100, not the 100 cm that is currently being advocated.
Boretti also notes that there has been a huge deceleration of sea-level rise (SLR) over the past 10 years – and even more so in the last 5 years.
A deceleration? Now we’re calling sea-level DECLINE a deceleration? Sea levels actually fell in both 2010 and 2011.

Boretti comments, “in order for the prediction of a 100-cm increase in sea level by 2100 to be correct, the SLR must be almost 11 mm/year every year for the next 89 years.”
“(And) since the SLR is dropping, the predictions become increasingly unlikely,” especially in view of the facts that (1) “not once in the past 20 years has the SLR of 11 mm/year ever been achieved,” and that (2) “the average SLR of 3.1640 mm/year is only 20% of the SLR needed for the prediction of a one meter rise to be correct.”
