The Data shows the Sea Levels are not Rising despite what Al Gore has been Saying

Posted by PITHOCRATES - December 28th, 2013

 Week in Review

Al Gore has been warning us since the Nineties that if we don’t act immediately to stop global warming the seas will rise and flood the world’s coastlines.  And if we didn’t act soon it would be too late to prevent this.  But we did nothing.  As Al Gore chastises us over and over.  From his beachside estate.  Apparently he really isn’t all that concerned about the rising sea levels.  Perhaps because he is familiar with the annual mean seal level data (see Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level).

Annual Mean Sea Level

The sea level had actually fallen from a high during the Eighties when Gore was warning about the impending rise of the sea level.  And near the end of the Nineties when he was even more shrilly warning us that the rising seas would engulf our coastal areas if we didn’t take immediate action there was actually a sharp fall in the sea levels.  Then they rose again.  And fell again.  Rose again.  And fell again.  They’re actually lower now than they were during their highest level in the Eighties.  And even lower than they were in the Nineties.  When Gore told us the consequences for not acting were greatest.

Clearly the Gore warnings were not based on the data.  So why all the warnings to the contrary?  Who knows.  Whatever the reason one thing is for sure.  It paid him very well.  And gave him that beachside estate.
