Accelerating sea levels swamping the world's coastal regions is the "bread & butter" fear of global warmista scientists - tide gauge station empirical evidence however does not support the CAGW predictions (hysteria)
Read here. Australians are naturally concerned with protecting their coastal areas from rising sea levels due to CO2-induced global warming (is it even happening?). Over recent years, a collection of Australia's scientists, politicians, bureaucrats and journalists have been spreading the fear of rising tides swamping Australia. But are the fears justified?
Global & Australian tide gauge station data
Utilizing data from the world's tide gauges, a new peer reviewed study debunks the myth that Australia needs to spend billions to protect its shoreline from sea inundation.
"The government of Australia is supporting the statement that sea levels are rising faster than ever before as a result of increased carbon dioxide emissions. Consequent to this, low-lying coastal areas, where the majority of Australians are concentrated, have been declared at risk of sea level inundations...However, long term tide gauges, recording sea levels worldwide, as well as along the coastline of Australia, and within the bay of Sydney, do not show any sign of accelerating sea level rises at present time...Long term recording tide gauges show weak sea level rises and no acceleration."
