Exceptional

From US News:
If the amount of ice lost between 2003 and 2010 covered the United States, the whole country would be under one-and-a-half feet of water, or it'd fill Lake Erie eight times, researchers say. Ocean levels worldwide are rising about six hundredths of an inch per year.

So... global warming alarmists want us to be concerned that this rising-water trend is a linear event, instead of a cyclical phase - unlike every single climate-related event in the history of the planet.

These jokers crack me up.

  1. Ocean levels worldwide are rising about six hundredths of an inch per year.

    So I know they are lying because there is no possible way to measure it with that kind of precision. You get that precision by taking your math into weird decimal places while ignoring the established limits that signigicant figures places on your measurements. Too much averaging going on.

  2. Also, since the techtonic plates themselves are in motion, small changes in the total volume of the oceans are to be expected and their size and direction (increase or decrease) are unpredictable.

  3. Granted, I'm not a "climatologist", but - with the exception of precision machining tolerances - 6/100ths of anything sounds to me like it belongs in the category of "rounding error".
