From the American Thinker, June 6, 2013
- Four IPCC reports (1990, 1996, 2001 and 2007) indicated vastly different assessments of SLR (Sea Level Rise) projections
- Recent data provides support for the hypothesis that “the observed global SLR since 1900 is reasonably independent of the observed temperature rise.”
- “Can Global Warming (GW) really lower sea level rise? It all depends on the time-scale: Yes, if GW lasts only for some decades or less. No, if warmer temperatures persist for millennia.”
