Allowing for limitations of global sea level data, it seems the endless cries of alarm and scary scenarios are not justifiable at this time.
Climatologist Dr. Judith Curry: Mean global sea level has risen at a slow creep for more than 150 years; since 1900, global mean sea level has risen about 7-8 inches.
The implications of the highest values of projected sea-level rise under future climate change scenarios are profound, with far-reaching socioeconomic and environmental implications.
However, these projections are regarded as deeply uncertain and the highest of these projections strain credulity…
Recent research has concluded that there is no consistent or compelling evidence that recent rates of sea level rise are abnormal in the context of the historical records back to the 19th century that are available across Europe…
Tide gauges also show that rates of global mean sea level rise between 1920 and 1950 were comparable to recent rates.
