Singer: 'I chose to assess the sea-level trend from 1915-45, when a genuine, independently confirmed warming of approximately 0.5 degree Celsius occurred. I note particularly that sea-level rise is not affected by the warming; it continues at the same rate, 1.8 millimeters a year, according to a 1990 review by Andrew S. Trupin and John Wahr. I therefore conclude—contrary to the general wisdom—that the temperature of sea water has no direct effect on sea-level rise. That means neither does the atmospheric content of carbon dioxide. This conclusion is worth highlighting: It shows that sea-level rise does not depend on the use of fossil fuels. The evidence should allay fear that the release of additional CO2 will increase sea-level rise.'
'Currently, sea-level rise does not seem to depend on ocean temperature, and certainly not on CO2. We can expect the sea to continue rising at about the present rate for the foreseeable future. By 2100 the seas will rise another 6 inches or so—a far cry from Al Gore’s alarming numbers. There is nothing we can do about rising sea levels in the meantime. We’d better build dikes and sea walls a little bit higher.'
At the American Geophysical Union in New Orleans, Sarah Myhre, PhD - 'a Scientist/feminist/activist, all in one', claimed, "climate change cannot fully be addressed without also grappling with the misogyny and social injustice that have perpetuated the problem for decades."
Myhre declared: “Imagine a world where women are in charge,” she said wryly, “And then you’ll imagine a world without fossil fuels.”
Climate Depot note:
"We don't have to 'Imagine', the developing world in Africa, South America and Asia, has over one billion people who essentially live in a 'world without fossil fuels' and they live in a world of energy poverty with high infant mortality, shorter life expectancy and no running water and many live in huts made of dung."
