Read here. From the creepy Al Gore to Leonardo DiCaprio to despot Hugo Chavez, there are thousands of science illiterate celebrities claiming that the oceans are rising to dangerous levels. The celebrity claim is that human-induced global warming is causing the seas to rise and will result in millions of refugees having to move from low-level coastal areas.
Unfortunately for the mentally-challenged, disturbed celebrities, the dangerous "oceans are dangerously rising" myth is just that.
"The rate of sea level rise over much of the last 6,000 years has been an almost-imperceptible 1.4 millimeters per year (about 6 inches per century). Based on tide gauge measurements, sea level has risen by an average of 1.7 ± 0.3 mm/year since 1950 [7 inches per century]. Like most things associated with Earth's environment, sea levels are not static. They are constantly changing, as is the climate itself....Part of sea level change may, indeed, be caused by human activity, but not because of anthropogenic global warming. Damming and rerouting rivers diminishes water flowing to the sea; over-pumping buried aquifers and draining oil fields can cause subsidence. At the same time uplift and subduction, changing wind and currents, erosion and the deposit of sediments all play a larger, natural part. So when climate change alarmists start ranting about the inexorable rise of the world's oceans, realize that it is just another scare tactic being used to frighten the uninformed public—sea level shenanigans meant to promote the warmist agenda."
