Sea levels may have dropped in 2010

by John Kehr, The Inconvenient Skeptic, January 16, 2024 [here]

Based on the most current data it appears that 2010 is going to show the largest drop in global sea level ever recorded in the modern era. Since many followers of global warming believe that the rate of sea level rise is increasing, a significant drop in the global sea level highlights serious flaws in the IPCC projections. The oceans are truly the best indicator of climate. The oceans drive the world’s weather patterns. A drop in the ocean levels in a year that is being cited as proof that the global warming has arrived shows that there is still much to learned. If the ocean levels dropped in 2010, then there is something very wrong with the IPCC projections. …

2006 was the first year to show a drop in the global sea level. 2010 will be the 2nd year to show a decrease in sea level. That is correct, 2 of the past 5 years are going to show a decrease in sea level. 2010 could likely show a significant drop global sea level. By significant I mean it is possible that it will likely drop between 2-3 mm from 2009. Since the data has not been updated since August it is difficult to guess more precisely, but the data ends at the time of year that the seasonal drop begins to show up. If the drop does show up as expected, it is possible that 2010 will show the largest [annual] drop in sea level ever recorded. …

One fact is certain. A drop in sea level in 2 of the past 5 years is a strong indicator that a [rising] sea level is not a great concern. In order for the IPCC prediction to be correct of a 1 meter increase in sea level by 2100, the rate [of increase] must be almost 11 mm/yr every year for the next 89 years. Since the rate is dropping, it makes the prediction increasingly unlikely. Not even once in the past 20 years has that rate ever been achieved. …

This is yet another serious blow the accuracy of the official IPCC predictions for the coming century. The fact that CO2 levels have been higher in the last 5 years that have the lowest rate of rise than the years with lower CO2 levels is a strong indicator that the claims [made regarding] CO2 are grossly exaggerated. … [more]

Note: Oh no!!! Sea levels are dropping! Our ports will high and dry in no time! Obviously, it’s time to panic, albeit in the other direction.
