According to NOAA – zoohousenews.com’s decades of data, there is no link between CO2 and sea level rise

(Natural News) For years, the global warming cult has shamed people for not believing in their religion of doom, for not agreeing that the oceans are rising, that the world is dying because of CO2. According to decades of tidal data collected by the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), sea levels have generally remained the same for centuries, regardless of atmospheric CO2 levels.
If a tiny rise in sea level is detected, it will be observed over a century, and the rise does not even correlate to the level of CO2 in the atmosphere. Tectonic activity, hurricane damage, the El Nino effect, and changes in ocean currents are just a few of the uncontrollable variables affecting sea level measurements.
Sea level tide gauge data suggests that CO2 has no effect on sea level
NOAA collects coastal tide level data from more than two hundred stations along the US coasts, in the Gulf of Mexico, and on seven Pacific island groups and six Atlantic island groups. NOAA has sea level data going back to the 19th century. In the 1970s, scientists were indeed concerned about global cooling and an imminent ice age. However, at the turn of the 21st century, global warming and then climate change became the pressing issues of the time. In any case, sea levels have generally remained the same, and populations are thriving along the coasts.
The NOAA tide level record in Battery, New York, has stood for 160 years. This site has found a slow, steady rise in sea levels, but the rise is tiny – 11 inches per century. In the California coastal towns of San Diego, Los Angeles, La Jolla and San Francisco, average sea levels are rising about 10 to 23 cm per century, but even this tiny rise has nothing to do with the level of CO2 in the atmosphere.
The tiny increase cannot be correlated with rising CO2 levels, as the gradual increase occurred in both non-industrial and high-CO2 periods. The slow, steady rise in sea levels began in these places in 1855, long before there were coal-fired power plants, diesel trucks, private jets, and muscle cars. In addition, the steady rise in ocean water over the past century has occurred during both rapid increases in temperature and periods of global cooling.
The removal and capture of CO2 will have no impact on sea levels
The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is warning the world that sea levels will rise significantly over the next decade, far more than in the past two centuries. However, if we follow the data for sixty years during periods of high CO2 emissions, sea levels should not be rising more than they have been in the past two centuries. The NOAA data contradicts the IPCC’s hysteria.
Despite the rise in CO2 levels over the last sixty years due to human activity, average sea levels have remained on the same course as before the sharp rise in CO2 levels. This is true all over the world, from Atlantic City, New Jersey to Honolulu, Hawaii to Bombay, India to St. Petersburg, FL to Cauta, Spain, Sydney, Australia and Slipshavn, Denmark.
“Although human influence on climate has been much smaller in the past, the models do not take into account the fact that global sea level rise was as great 70 years ago as it is today,” said Dr. Steven E Koonin, former US Secretary of State for Science in 2014.
For example, sea level in Cauta, Spain, is expected to rise about three inches over the next 100 years, as it has in previous centuries. There is no evidence of a ten foot sea level rise as predicted by former NASA scientist James Hansen.
In Hawaii, sea level is dependent on local plate tectonic movements and global ocean currents. Despite all the shifts in land and sea movement over the past century, Hawaii has only seen a 5.6 inch tidal rise since the year 1900. This tiny increase has nothing to do with the increase in CO2 levels in the Earth’s atmosphere in the past sixty years.
The largest sea level rise appears to be occurring in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The 16-inch sea-level rise over the past century cannot be directly correlated with rising CO2 levels attributed to natural changes that occurred during the 1988 El Niño. According to the data, the El Niño effect had the greatest impact on sea level rise over the Pacific Ocean, immediately followed by a five-year sea level decline at the Atlantic City site.
One of the most interesting sea level trends over the last century is the Sitka, Alaska location. Sea levels here have trended steadily downward, not upward, over the decades. If the trend continues, sea level at this location will drop by 25 cm over the next 100 years. Sitka, 100 miles from Glacier Bay, would be one of the first places to show massive sea level rise — if melting glaciers were actually causing sea level rise. Oddly enough, Alaska is gaining and is expected to continue to gain seacoast given the high levels of CO2 in the atmosphere.
The only real threat that populations have to adapt to is the threat of hurricanes along densely populated coasts. Coastal cities shouldn’t have to worry about melting glaciers and rising tides for tens of thousands of years, but they face the natural threat of hurricanes and tsunamis, and—if the cities are built on an active volcano—perhaps the most relevant is natural tectonic activity be a threat. The hysteria of global warming only robs our communities of taxpayers’ money, destroys our energy diversity and national sovereignty, and distracts us from adequately adapting to natural disasters.
