“So not only can they take the Earth’s temperature accurate to more than one hundredth of a °C they can now measure sea level rise to a one hundredth of a millimetre ????”

Seriously, who believes this gibberish?
I saw a story on Australia’s cheer leader on climate alarm the ABC the other day.
“Scientists using seismic testing at the largest glacier in east Antarctica find massive subglacial lakes beneath its surface — which they say radically alters estimates on predicted sea level rise.”
One guy said “While the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) estimates sea levels will rise by a metre by 2100, Dr Galton-Fenzi said those estimates did not factor in the increased discharge of Antarctic ice due to climate change.”
He stated that between 7 and 11 metres of sea level rise was possible by 2100.
Aren’t you simply amazed by the power of atmospheric CO2 ?
Somehow atmospheric CO2 traps radiation from the cold Antarctic surface at 5 kilometres high in the stratosphere and then somehow manages to sneak below a 2 kilometre (6561 feet )-thick glacier causing melting at the bottom whilst the surface of the glacier shows zero sign of melting !!
WOW !! Run and hide !
Of course underwater or under glacier volcanism couldn’t possibly have any impact on this could it ?
And, as usual, there was the obligatory finale invoking that IF ONLY we had MORE research money to investigate this (fanciful fraud – the CO2 is the cause fraud I mean) we could assist in our understanding of climate change.
Here’s the link
The written story is slightly different in that he doesn’t make the bald statement shown on TV – 7 – 11 metres of sea level rise by 2100.
Oh, by the way, Naomi Orsekes made a similar, albeit not as large, nonsensical claim in about 2011 and here is how Tony Heller graphed her claim – 10 feet sea level rise by 2100.
As usual stupid alarmist claims produce absolutely nonsensical graphs when plotted.
10 feet is 3048 millimetres and over 89 years requires a rate of increase of 34.25 millimetres per year !!
The “measured” sea level rise is between 1.7 and 3.2 millimetres per year – 10 times LESS than Orsekes fanciful claim.
To meet her ridiculous claim we should have already seen almost 274 millimetres since she sprouted that BS – almost 11 inches !
Or will it simply wait for 50 + years and then all melt suddenly in a splash reminiscent of dropping several ice cubes into your glass of Scotch ?
Or how about this gibberish ??
“The study, by US scientists, has calculated the rate of global mean sea level rise is not just going up at a steady rate of 3mm a year, but has been increasing by an additional 0.08mm a year, every year since 1993.”
Still nothing like Orsekes 34.25 millimetres per year or the Antarctic circus’s claim of about 86 millimetres (3.4 inches) per year though !!
So not only can they take the Earth’s temperature accurate to more than one hundredth of a °C they can now measure sea level rise to a one hundredth of a millimetre ????
Seriously, who believes this gibberish ?
