Professor Nils-Axel Morner (Stockholm University emeritus Professor) rubishes new alarmist paper on sea level rises.

    Professor Nils-Axel Morner former Professor of Sea Level studies at Stockholm University has rubbished the recent paper in the American NAS on sea level.

Leading Authority on Sea Levels Disputes Study Asserting Sea Level Rise Is Fastest in 27 Centuries

From New American:

A newly released study led by Bob Kopp, a climate scientist at Rutgers University and nine colleagues from several U.S. and global universities claims: “The 20th century rise [in sea levels] was extremely likely faster than during any of the 27 previous centuries.”
However, the findings of the study were immediately challenged by Dr. Nils-Axel Morner, the former head of the paleogeophysics and geodynamics department at Stockholm University and a leading world authority on sea levels and coastal erosion.
“The PNAS paper is another sad contribution to the demagogic anti-science campaign for AGW. It is at odds with observational facts and ethical principles,” Morner wrote to the Climate Depot news service. “The paper is full of very bad violations of observational facts,” Morner continued. For instance, the Kopp paper says that the tide gauges at Christmas Island, Kiribati, show increases, yet as Morner notes, while showing the tide gauge record from that island for the past 40 years, "How can anyone find a rapidly rising trend in this tide gauge record? It is flat or rather slowly falling — but in no way rising.” He added that nowhere are there records of true "acceleration."
The disputed study, “Temperature-driven global sea-level variability in the Common Era,” was published on February 22 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).  Acknowledgements to Paul Homewood and blog nota lotofpeopleknowthat.

US Supreme Court blocks Obama`s global warming plans. A fatal blow struck against man made climate change.

The U.S. Supreme Court just delivered a major blow to President Barack Obama’s global warming agenda by halting the implementation of a key Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulation on carbon dioxide emissions.
The court won’t allow the EPA to implement its so-called Clean Power Plan (CPP), which aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power plants 32 percent by 2030. This is a big win for the 29 states suing the federal government to stop a rule expected to cripple the coal industry.
“Five justices of the Supreme Court agreed with North Dakota and other parties that EPA’s regulation would impose massive irreparable harms on North Dakota and the rest of the country and that there was a substantial likelihood EPA was acting unlawfully,” Paul Seby, an attorney with law firm Greenberg Traurig representing the state of North Dakota, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
States asked the Supreme Court to halt implementation of the CPP after a lower court rejected their appeal in January. Now,Attorney General Morrisey and the Obama administration will make their oral arguments on the merits of the law in front of federal judges in June.  " Make no mistake this is a great victory for West Virginia" said the West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey who is leading the 26 states who have filed opposition.  The Obama administration does not have legality on its side. The Paris Agreement on global warming has not been ratified by the Senate. Tom Pyle President of the Institute for Energy Research said "this will be a fatal blow to the president`s climate agenda"
Postcript: one of the justices who voted against the Obama climate policy found dead!

Mind Blowing heat of 1936.


           Fig (1) shows Seymour Indiana which had 49 days over 100 degrees and reached 113F(45celsius)!    Most of the 100 degree days came during two heatwaves.  A 15 day stretch in July and a 20 day stretch in August.   The modern day warmists are liars.  (originally posted by Steven Goddard 7 February 2016)
