"Global varning"!

 
DN återgav med braskande rubriker häromdagen en artikel från tidskriften Nature, under rubriken: "Forskare varnar för höga havsnivåer".

Tongångarna känns igen. Isarna smälter och havsytan stiger. Nya katastrofrapporter trappar upp klimatmötet i Köpenhamn.

Så här skriver den internationellt erkänt framstående havsnivåexperten Nils-Axel Mörner i en kommentar:

"On December 16, Nature posted an article by Richard A. Lovett called  
"Sea level rise may exceed worst expectation".
The timing is correct for maximum impact and mimimum discussion.
The article has already been referred to as an argument for immediate 
action in Copenhagen.

The facts are different, however.
The author claims that sea level at the Last Interglacial 125,000  
years ago was +10 m.
This figure does not concur with present knowledge among sea level  
specialists.
Would it be correct, all of our knowledge and long-term analyses of  
vertical tectonics, would be wrong – and this is
certainly not the case. A sea level at +10 m in the Last Interglacial  
is simply wrong. Sea level specialists know this,
and so do global tectonic specialists.

A 10 m rise would – under Ice Age deglacial conditions – take at  
least 1000 years; under interglacial climatic
conditions many times more.
In the text (not quoted by climatic agitators in the press), the  
author gives the rate of sea level rise at 75 ±17 cm per century.
This means by year 2100 a sea level rise by about 70 cm (±17 cm) –  
and not at all any +10 m as media is widely  claiming.
For comparison IPCC give +37 ±30 cm in a century and our group gives  
+5 ±15 cm in a century.

This implies that the article by Lovett primarily is another piece of  
desinformation, arriving just in time.
The question is how Nature can stay behind this. One feels the cold  
wind of the CRU-scandal behaviour.

our understanding of sea level change”


Till detta kan läggas att de mätningar som fortlöpande görs av havsytans nivå vid Maldiverna med hjälp av satellit av sagde Mörner inte visar några sådana dramatiska förändringar som skulle motivera domedagsprofetiorna runt klimamötet i Köpenhamn.
