Why Al Gore felt safe buying an oceanfront estate: Researchers lied about sea levels rising

by editor on June 20, 2011

We’ve always thought it odd that the scientists who are officially responsible for measuring sea levels around the world are located a mile high in Colorado. We took it as a sign of their very real fear that sea levels are rising.

The University of Colorado’s Sea Level Research Group is supposed to be an impartial scientific organization dedicated to the search for truth. Turns out that they consider truth to be a subjective matter.

Al Gore's oceanfront Montecito estate: Sea levels aren't rising, but the bullshit is getting deeper

Fox News reports the Rocky Mountain mayhem:

“Gatekeepers of our sea level data are manufacturing a fictitious sea level rise that is not occurring,” said James M. Taylor, a lawyer who focuses on environmental issues for the Heartland Institute.

Steve Nerem, the director of the widely relied-upon research center, told FoxNews.com that his group added the 0.3 millimeters per year to the actual sea level measurements because land masses, still rebounding from the ice age, are rising and increasing the amount of water that oceans can hold.

“We have to account for the fact that the ocean basins are actually getting slightly bigger… water volume is expanding,” he said, a phenomenon they call glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA).

Taylor calls it tomfoolery.

“There really is no reason to do this other than to advance a political agenda,” he said.

Apparently the University of Colorado is conducting its research based on a scientific principle known as “Making crap up as you go.”

Climate scientist John Christy, a professor at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, said that the amount of water in the ocean and sea level were two different things.

“To me… sea level rise is what’s measured against the actual coast,” he told FoxNews.com. “That’s what tells us the impact of rising oceans.”

Taylor agreed.

“Many global warming alarmists say that vast stretches of coastline are going to be swallowed up by the sea. Well, that means we should be talking about sea level, not about global water volume.”

Al Gore warned us that sea levels would rise twenty feet in the next hundred years. That is far scarier than saying the ocean is going to get twenty feet deeper in the next hundred years.

Bottom line: If the facts don’t prove your theory, change the facts.

Hopefully we have dodged the proverbial bullet on the sea levels. I am not a greenie or tree hugger, but the quality of our water is getting worse by the day. How much other than h2o do you want in your water? All of these environmental issues are tied together.

wouldn’t the land masses rising reduce the total volume of the ocean basins, for that matter where is that excess capacity coming from or going to? I don’t see how the total volume is changed in a closed system like a planet. all the stuff we have is already here and rearranging it a bit wont change the volume significantly. i suppose you could pile it up really high somehow, … no I don’t see it.

Yeah, somebody’s piling something up really high, alright.

I guess they think all of the piling up high somewhere takes place in the Arctic and Antarctic regions of the planet, all that ice can’t be just for Mint Julips!

Awright now, awright. James Taylor may have seen fire,he may have seen rain, but I doubt he knows DICK about Global Warming(TM)!

Sea levels may or may not rise but Gore and his fellow crooks know their bullshit emissions will keep his mansion FAR above sea level for eons to come.

Having a bit of background in engineering, I am truly curious. I want to see somebody show me how they can measure a difference of 0.3 millimeters in something so,…um,…fluid as an ocean.

I just hate greenies and I hate greenies in white lab coats more and I hate the ones in white lab coats who purposely lie to advance a destructive political agenda even more!

Strange (or not) how these global warming zealots seem to live right on the oceans.

I guess they’re just taking one for the team, patriots that they are.

And they overlook, and outright ignore the fact that when a volcanoe burps, it spews more C02 and Sulpher Dioxide into the atmosphere than what mankind can produce in years. Just one volcanoe….

Be honest, is anyone surprised to hear of global warming acolytes fudging the numbers (again)?

Be honest…….

This is a concept that the libtards can never adopt , as it will be the ruin to their entire thought process.

Truth is not on their side , at all.

Al Gore is the world’s greatest fraudster, his entire “global warming/climate change” empire is built on scientific fraud, funded by gov’ts that want to control everything. He really should be investigated for fraud, & there are so many who support him, it’s really sad.

Al Gore and the rest of his minions create laws and rules based on lies. Their agenda is anti-Americanism at any cost. Liberals in the country will crawl in bed with criminals, terrorist, and scientist with political agendas as long as they tow the leftist line, they don’t care. If the the earth warms and the sea level rise, no amount of tax to curb CO2 will do anything to stop it and Al Gore knows it. POS!
