Scientist Claims Sea Level Is Not Rising At All

More from the “no man-made climate change” gang at Fox News, whose Gene J. Koprowski counters reports that rising sea levels will soon drown Venice by profiling a scientist who says he’s got the data to prove that wrong:

In a new scientific paper, Nils-Axel Morner, former emeritus head of the paleogeophysics and geodynamics department at Stockholm University in Sweden, says that observational records from around the world — locations like the Maldives, Bangladesh, India, Tuvalu and Vanuatu — show the sea level isn’t rising at all.

Morner’s research, revealed Monday at the fourth International Conference on Climate Change, demonstrates that there is no “alarming sea level rise” across the globe, and it says a U.N. report warning of coastal cities being deluged by rising waters from melting polar ice caps “is utterly wrong.”

The conference is presented annually in Chicago by the Heartland Institute, a conservative nonprofit think tank that actively questions the theory of man’s role in global warming. Last year the Institute published Climate Change Reconsidered, a comprehensive reply to the United Nations’ latest report on climate change.

“The tiger of global warming has lost its teeth. Maybe it’s not even a real tiger any more. Maybe it is a blown-up dummy,” Morner said at the conference.

For his paper, Morner looked at the sea-level changes in major metropolitan cities around the globe — including Venice, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Mumbai, as well as islands such as the Maldives. A total of 159 stations were used for the research. His study showed that there was a maximum of 3 millimeters of sea level rise in some locales around the world, and many coastal cities showed no rise at all…

    What!?!
    Yesterday I read that Climate Change was going to kill 4.5 billion people in the next 2 years and now they're saying there's no sea level rise at all?

    Somebody's fibbing.

    Hay, Majestic, a consensus of well funded scientists say that if you stick your cock far enough up your own shill ass you might stop using the limited hangout Fox buzzword to discredit those who argue against the obvious AGW fraud. Please re-run that story about torturing dissenters for balance plz thnx:

    Don’t worry, I wouldn’t want you to be tortured to death for having a different viewpoint to mine.
