Where's the evidence of climate crisis?

Anybody?

This is not a serious post as you would reject any substantive answer made based on your previous posting behaviour.

The data you shared supports my view.  It certainly offers no support for climate alarmism.  If you think otherwise, please explain.

I'll start.

Anthropogenic CO2 emissions are supposed to cause too much warming and an accelerating rise in sea level.  But where is that evident in the following century scale tide gauge data?  The hard data shows little to no indication of any such man-made CO2 climate crisis by way of accelerating rate of sea level rise.  Doesn't that falsify the whole climate crisis story?  Yes, it does, which is why the deceivers have adopted the strategy of tampering with satellite data and tacking it on the scientific record in place of tide gauge data.  That is off the charts scientific malpractice.  Pure garbage. 

If sea level were rising at an accelerated rate, that would be obvious from tide gauge data.  Instead all the tide gauge data covering a near century scale interval shows exceptionally long term linear behavior.

The plots below show monthly mean sea level exclusive of regular seasonal fluctuations due to coastal ocean temperatures, salinities, winds, atmospheric pressures, and ocean currents. The long-term linear trend is also shown, including its 95% confidenceinterval. The plotted values are relative to the Revised Local Reference (RLR) datum as established by the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL). The calculated trends for all stations are available as a table in millimeters/year and in feet/century (0.3 meters = 1 foot).  If present, solid vertical lines indicate times of any major earthquakes in the vicinity of the station, and dashed vertical lines bracket any periods of questionable data or datum shift.

Instead of using the above tide gauge data, the climate crisis cabal have adjusted it to fit their desired narrative:

 

They've lowered some of the data and then added on adjusted/tampered data to make it appear as though rate of sea level,rise has accelerated.  So corrupt.

...

For someone who claims to be a science professional you are extremely bad at reading and understanding data. Please read here for expert guidance on how to understand tide gauge data: https://climatedataguide.ucar.edu/climate-data/tide-gauge-sea-level-data. Here is a snipped describing one of many important effects that you are completely ignoring:

"Considerations when interpreting tide gauge data

3.1   Vertical land motion

Tide gauges measure relative sea level, which is the height of the water relative to the height of the land. This means that tide gauge sea level observations reflect vertical motion of both the sea surface and the coastline. For example, extraction of hydrocarbons in the ground near Galveston, TX is causing the land to subside in the region. The local tide gauge measures the land subsidence as additional long-term relative sea level rise on top of the increase due to climate change. Considering the effect of vertical land motion (VLM) is particularly important when calculating long-term sea level trends from tide gauges.

For some applications, it is necessary to correct for vertical land motion in tide gauge observations. One of the most important sources of VLM is glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA), which is the ongoing slow rebound of the Earth’s crust after removing the weight of ancient ice that existed during the last glacial maximum [e.g. Peltier, 1998]. This process manifests as long-term linear trends in tide gauge observations, and GIA models can be used to remove the GIA trends from the tide gauge data [e.g. Peltier, et al., 2015].

It may be possible to correct for other sources of VLM (seismic motion, subsidence, etc.) using Global Positioning System (GPS) measurements. This should be done with caution, however, because GPS captures time-dependent processes (unlike GIA, which is approximately constant for time-scales on the order of 100 years). The current rate of VLM measured by a GPS may not be the rate of land motion over the entire tide gauge record. Land motion can also vary over short distances, and using GPS data from a receiver that is not precisely co-located with a tide gauge may lead to erroneous conclusions."

Even your own plots make it pretty clear what they measure: they are labelled "relative sea level". ***Relative***. As in sea level relative to fixed positions attached to various bits of land. That is not the quantity that we need to consider when it comes to climate change, at least not without quite a lot of corrections.

Climate crisis requires sea level rise to accelerate, period.

Tides gauges do not show such acceleration. They show a steady linear behavior.


It is the rate of change that is at issue.  Linearity in relative mean sea level trends unequivocally defy the climate crisis narrative. Period.

It's not the precise value of global mean sea level rise rate, which varies place to place depending on geological uplift or subsidence, but rather the change in the rate of rising sea level, the linearity, the behavior of the derivative of sea level rise rate that is at issue.

Concerning relative mean sea level: It defies logic to declare on one hand that coastal cities are going to be inundated by an accelerating rise in sea level due to man-made climate crisis,  but then on the other hand dismiss the lack of any such accelerating rise in sea level at those coastal cities.

If climate crisis is accelerating the rise of sea level, then that fact must show up at tide gauges. Period. There is no credible way around that.

No amount of convoluted hand-waving can change basic scientific fact.

The issues you note relate to the understanding of the magnitude/value of average global relative mean sea level after accounting for geological uplift or subsidence., how to find the global average from all those different measurements by trying to account for local uplift or subsidence.

That's not the issue. The issue is whether or not in the long term (century scale) rate of change in mean sea level is accelerating or remaining constant.

It is remaining constant, not accelerating as required by the climate crisis narrative.

Because of that, corruption and shenanigans are now appearing, fraudulent manipulations of the data have been "justified."  Suddenly long period data gets changed. Suddenly highly manipulated short term satellite data is emphasized. And as with manipulations of the surface temperature records, the effect is always towards supporting the presupposed climate crisis narrative, the narrative that is vital to the gainful employment of its authors, the narrative in line with Leftist agenda.

That's unmitigated pure junk science.

No, what you are describing is junk science. It appears you have not read the link I posted and still do not understand the tide gauge data. You will not be able to say something sensible about this until you learn what those gauges are actually measuring.

I read it and addressed it.

An acceleration to the global rate of sea level rise must show up at tide gauges. There is no way around that.

 If you disagree, then please  do explain how sea level rise is accelerating while tide gauges the world over show no such acceleration in rate of sea level rise.

Do you imagine that the sea floor is sinking globally at an accelerating rate?  LOL!

If not measured relative to the land at the coast, what are you suggesting is the proper reference for gauging sea level?

Climate crisis alarmists stand upon their pedestals declaring impending doom for coastal cities due to an accelerating rise in sea level, and that we must ignore the actual hard data records documenting the actual behavior of sea level as measured at those coastal cities.

It's truly amazing to see.

See here for a proper explanation of the tide gauge data and sea level rise measurements:

https://skepticalscience.com/sea-level-rise.htm

The acceleration you speak of is indeed compatible with the data. It is a small effect over the time of measurements, so not obvious, but the data does indicate that it is there. And sea levels are most definitely rising on average.

See here for a proper explanation of the tide gauge data and sea level rise measurements:

https://skepticalscience.com/sea-level-rise.htm

The acceleration you speak of is indeed compatible with the data. It is a small effect over the time of measurements, so not obvious, but the data does indicate that it is there. And sea levels are most definitely rising on average.

Why are you so eager to accept dubious hand waving and manipulated data over the actual unmolested hard data? 

Please read the first comment in response to that blog page that you figure settles the issue. 

Again: It is impossible to have an acceleration in rate of sea level rise that doesn't show up at tide gauges.  Period.

Local adjustments to tide gauge records to account for for millenia-scale uplift or subsidence are irrelevant to the issue of accelerating rate of sea level rise, unless you're claiming said uplift or subsidence is spectacularly nonlinear over the past century.  No one has claimed that far as I know.  Is that what you're claiming?

Tide gauge records are being fraudulently changed by people writing papers in order to push the climate crisis narrative.  Satellite data from 1993 onwards is being fraudulently manipulated and tacked onto the tide gauge record in place of the original hard data from the tide gauges.

In effect, you and I are standing at the coast looking at the tide gauge and its record of sea level data. We agree that the tide gauge measurements, the actual hard data, show no discernible acceleration in long term rate of sea level rise over the past 100+ years.  There are decadal fluctuations up and down, but there is no apparent change in overall trend.  It is linear.  But you are claiming that sea level rise is nonlinear, accelerating only recently and boding impending catastrophy for coastal populations.  Because... ?  <fraudsters changed the data to show acceleration where there was none>

Did you know that while acceleration of the rate of sea level rise has reportedly manifest in contravention of the tide gauge hard data, the amount of coastal dry land on the planet has increased significantly?  Even on the low lying islands previously highlighted by fear-mongering climate alarmists as heading quickly towards inevitable submersion underneath the ever more rapidly rising sea, said islands' dry land area has increased.
