Sea levels are falling, not rising

Sea levels are falling, not rising – Several articles on falling sea levels.

Sea level rise about the thickness of a dime per year
25 Nov 10 – According to new satellite results, world average sea level rise is about 1 millimeter per year, or about 0.04 of an inch. That’s about the thickness of a dime.

Instead of being swamped, several Pacific Islands are growing
3 Jun 10 – According to global warming alarmists, rising sea levels “should” be inundating the tiny island nation of Tuvalu. It turns out, however, that a number of Pacific islands are actually growing.

Rising sea levels ‘the greatest lie ever told’
By Christopher Booker
28 Mar 09 – If there is one scientist who knows more about sea levels than anyone else in the world it is the Swedish geologist and physicist Nils-Axel Mörner. His findings are based on “going into the field to observe what is actually happening in the real world”.

The Lie of Deadly Rising Seas
By Marc Sheppard
14 Jan 10 – Scientists from the Norwegian Polar Institute measured sea temperatures beneath an East Antarctic ice shelf and found “no signs of warming whatsoever.” “The vast continent has actually cooled since 1979.”

Predicted sea-level rise slashed in half
14 May 09 – The global sea level will less than 10 feet if the West Antarctic ice sheet collapses – only about half the previously predicted rise. Notice that little word “if.”

Sea-level rise will be less than 3 inches (7 cm), not 7 meters
By Lord Christopher Monckton
12 May 07 – “The shore-dwellers of Bali need not fear for their homes. The IPCC now says the combined contribution of the two great ice-sheets to sea-level rise will be less than seven centimeters (less than three inches) after 100 years, not seven meters imminently.

Sea levels in the Atlantic Ocean have fallen at least 19 inches in the last 1,000 years
Contrary to popular belief in climatic stability during recent times, the Earth’s climate of the past 1000 years has changed significantly.

Sea levels falling in the Indian Ocean
In 2003, Nils-Axel Mörner and his colleagues (see below) published a well-documented paper showing that sea levels in the Maldives have fallen substantially – fallen! – in the last 30 years. I find it curious that we haven’t heard about this.

Sea levels falling in the Pacific Ocean
New measurements show that sea levels have fallen 2.5 inches since that time. Similar sea-level declines have been recorded in Nauru and the Solomon Islands.

Sea levels falling in the Arctic Ocean
15 Jun 06 – Arctic sea level has been falling more than 2mm a year – a movement that [supposedly] sets the region against the global trend of rising waters. A Dutch-UK team made the discovery after analyzing radar altimetry data gathered by Europe ‘s ERS-2 satellite.

Sea levels falling around Australia
Sea level rose about 130m in the 10,000 years between 17,000 and 7,000 years ago; with a maximum observed level ~8m above present sea level in marine deposits dated ~ 6000 years old in perched Antarctic lakes. It has subsequently fallen in steps as the planet has cooled to our present level.

Antarctic Ice Sheet growing enough to lower sea levels
This paper, published in 2006, shows that the Antarctic ice sheet is gaining enough ice to lower – lower! – global sea levels by 0.08 mm year.
