You will not find the head of the Climate Commission Professor Tim Flannery mentioning this, because he prefers scaremongering high sea levels that are above the IPCC estimates. You will not hear Malcolm Turnbull mentioning this as he wants to respect the scienceÂ and ignore â€œless reliable”Â scientists that do not fit in with his carefully self-selected science. You will not hear Prime Minister Julia Gllard mentioning this, because for her the science is settled.
However a recent paper shows that Australian sea-level rise has been slowing between 1940-2000. The difference with this research is that it uses real tide-gauges rather than computer models predicting sea level increases. Another study had previously shown thatÂ “Extending the sea level record back over the entire century suggests that the high variability in the rates of sea level change observed over the past 20 years were not particularly unusual”.
How will the doom-sayers cope?
