Study shows sea levels increased faster in the first half of the 20th century than in the second half

It is an article of faith among hardline believers in apocalyptic-manmade-global-warming-by-CO2 that sea levels are increasing–and that this increase is ACCELERATING as the planet’s glaciers and polar ice caps melt.

And it seems there is widespread agreement that sea levels have risen moderately over the past several centuries.

But now there is a major study by scientists in Britain, the Netherlands and Germany which indicates that sea level rise has been SLOWING DOWN over the past century even as CO2 levels have increased in the atmosphere.

Specifically, sea levels appear to have risen by 2.03 mm/year between 1904-1953 but rose only about 1.45 mm/year from 1954 to 2003.

If true the findings cast great doubt on the apocalyptic predictions and claims of many government-funded scientists. See here.

Government-funded scientists have generally claimed that the world’s oceans have warmed and risen unnaturally since the dawn of the human industrial revolution.
