TIA BS: More Global Warming Things to Worry about (46) RE: BS: More Global Warming Things to Worry about 21 Dec 09

The link above is to a famous interview with Nils Axel-Morner, a well-known climate change curmudgeon, and a member of the partially Exxon-funded International Climate Science Coalition. In addition to his assertions on sea level rise, he is a vocal champion of dowsing - even attempting to teach a course on it at Stockholm University before his (some say forced) retirement.

In the interview, he claims that Australian Climate scientists cut down a tree that he says proves there is no sea level rise in the Maldives. This allegation has been shown to be extremely dodgey. Apparently there was a tree at one time, then it was gone (nobody knows why), and Morner brought one in from elsewhere on the island, and propped it up, then had it pulled it out to make a "documentary". Four years later he admitted to staging the whole thing.

The satellite altimeter data that he bases his sea level views on are available from NOAA. Please look, and make your own interpretation:
