Climate change accelerated.

Science Magazine: Climate change is occurring faster than forecast. Sea levels, for instance, are rising at 3.3mm annually, not the 2mm forecast by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. This is particularly ironic in light of American conservatives complaining that the IPCC exaggerated the likely outcome when, in fact, it seems they were too optimistic.

  1. ummmm, are those crickets I hear over on the right side of the aisle?

    This was posted on Thursday, I absolutely surprised the flat-earthers haven’t been all over this!

  2. In 16 years, the oceans have risen 53 mm or about 2 inches. Sounds exciting.

    How do we know whether or not this is caused by human activity? When did we ever establish the normal rise and fall of sea levels?
