Climate adaptation follies. Part II: scenarios of future sea level rise — Climate Etc.

by Judith Curry How did the state of New Jersey come to adopt sea level rise projections for their adaptation planning that are more than twice as high as the IPCC’s values? Part I introduced the challenges facing New Jersey associated with sea level rise, and their general adaptation strategy. Their adaptation strategy is driven […]

Fear Not Rising Temperatures or Ocean Levels —

https://rclutz.wordpress.com/2020/12/10/fear-not-rising-temperatures-or-ocean-levels/ by Ron Clutz Dominick T. Armentano writes at the Independent Institute Are Temperatures and Ocean Levels Rising Dangerously? Not Really. Excerpts in italics with my bolds. H/T John Ray There are two widely held climate-change beliefs that are simply not accurate. The first is that there has been a statistically significant warming trend in the U.S. over the last 20 years.…

0.5-2.0 metre sea level rise possible, more frequent floods — Your NZ

A ‘best case’ scenario of an average 0.5 metre sea level rise, with far more frequent extreme coastal water levels, would caause a lot of problems. A ‘worst case’ scenario is an average 2 metre rise, equivalent to ‘100 year floods’ every day. If scientists are wrong it could be less – or more. Noted: […]
