TFA: Driven by global warming, waters in this part of the Pacific have risen faster than the global average....sea level is rising in the Pacific around the Marshall's at a much higher rate than elsewhere in the world. The rate of rise between 1993 and 2009 was 12mm per year, compared with the global average of 3.2mm.

Complete and utter bullshiat from the alarmists at the BBC

Random NSCSB: I once got grounded for a week because I let my little brother watch that scene and he had nightmares for months.  The problem is, I'd never seen Heavy Metal before and I had no idea that scene was coming up.  To me it was just some random cartoon, so why the fark wouldn't I let my younger brother watch?

I have DesertDemonWY tagged as "Typical Denier" ... so I suspect he's serious. Just don't expect him to understand what he posts.

Um, WTF are you even talking about?

The article claims that the ocean around the Marshall Islands is rising much faster than the global MSL rise of 3.2mm per year. In the real world, actual data says only 1.43mm/yr. So yes, complete and utter bullshiat

Strong words from the man who doesn't understand what the phrase "between 1993 and 2009" means.

OK, thanks. I just looked at his [LINK] and for a moment there was like "is this guy just a farking idiot, or what?"

Glad to see I can omit the ending "or what?" and the leading "Is", since his first graph clearly shows a rise of multiple millimeters per year as well.

If you're puzzled at all by the reaction you're getting in this thread, it's because the data you've posted proves the opposite of what you claim.

My goodness, you really don't understand the idea that short-term trends are not somehow mutually exclusive with longer-term ones, do you?

This is the exact same mistake you make when you claim that a trend comprising of less than a decade somehow disproves longer-term trends, just in reverse. In this case, a trend from the middle of the 1940s until now does not somehow disprove a trend from 1993 until 2009.

It really looks like you've got a severe mental block on this particular bit of science literacy. Just let us know what you don't understand about it, and we can help.


That aside, another issue is there are multiple stations around the Marshall Islands - attempting to disprove what the article claims by choosing just one of them isn't going to work.

This is overreach on my part. I take this bit back. The claim by the BBC may very well be wrong in regards to the specific number they quoted, but your own graph shows sea level rise in excess of the global SLR they've stated, plus you're not going to disprove their claim by choosing just one station out of a handful.

Put brackets around (img src="www.website.com/pic.jpg" ) instead of parenthesis and it'll work.

Personally, I can't wrap my head around how the sea level can rise faster in one spot versus another, unless this is not taking latitude into account.  I mean, it's the SEA LEVEL.

Now, if the islands were also sinking while the sea level was rising, that I'll buy.

Currents, thermal expansion, differences in salinity thus differences in density. The oceans are very heterogeneous.

I'll buy that, actually.
