Ringer BS: More Global Warming Things to Worry about (46) RE: BS: More Global Warming Things to Worry about 18 Dec 09

That's not a serious cite, Bill D. The only hard fact in it (I may be exagerating slightly) seemed to be "such floods have been occurring more and more frequently in recent years," which sounds, in the absence of evidence, like anecdote, notoriously unreliable.

The Maldives, of course (like many as-yet-undeveloped nations) , have a vested interest in appearing to be the victims of industrial nations' emissions: rich industrial nations pour cash into them to assuage guilty consciences. You may recall recently that the Maldives government recently held a cabinet-meeting under water, to make the point! Obviously (obviously, at least, to the cognoscenti like me) a "gimme gimme gimme" stunt.

But I maintain, nevertheless, that sea-levels are not rising. Don't go away: I'll find some evidence.

Just as an aside, if the sea really was rising, then simple physics dictates that the world's spin would slow (as a ballet-dancer's spin slows when she extends her arms). Have you noticed your clocks running fast?
