No, in order to convince Steve Case, the foolish and ignorant old man, sea level has to rise round his ankles in order for him to give up his arrogance.<quoted text>
You're right, I have said that the numbers show some deceleration. But that isn't my point.
In order for you guys to have your predictions come true, the rate of sea level rise has to accelerate. And it has to accelerate robustly. This it not happening.
If the predictions of science are to come true, an acceleration in sea level rise will become evident in the satellite data over a period of several decades beyond the present.
That acceleration may be happening now, but it's so small compared to natural variability in the short term that it is not detectable.
The truth is that it's your grandchildren who will see the acceleration happen, not you. That's what the science says very clearly. Let's leave them the very clear message that you didn't believe the science because you arrogantly demanded that global warming had to affect *you* to be real.
And from that they will understand that you were an arrogant, solipsistic old fool.
