Texas Censors Science

Religious feeling is as much a verity as any other part of human consciousness; and against it, on the subjective side, the waves of science beat in vain.

Links for both please. I am aware of very minor changes in sea level, But since in some areas the land itself is rising or falling there can be other factors that affect sea level.
Put it this way, so far there has been very little rise in sea level due to climate change, but that situation will not stay the same if the climate keeps warming.

Hm. Looks like Fred was having an off day.

Fred? Fred! What have I told you about falling asleep on the job?!

Current rates of relative sea level rise, due to both an increased rate of eustasy and subsidence, are
approaching 3 mm per year [and may well exceed 4 mm per year by the end of this century].

So are you changing your earlier position that there has been no sea level change since 1909 in the Galveston area? Your link for Galveston does show a rate of change of about 2.8 mm/yr. That is 28 centimeters in a century. And you are trying to compare to very different things. You are comparing local sea level changes with average global sea level changes. The rate of sea level change can vary quite a bit around the globe. For example if you check out Oslo's sea level you will find that it is falling not rising. You are very limited in your claims with only one site. To truly understand global effects you must have many data collection sites.

Hmmm, and the EU says that water can't prevent dehydration. Now tell me, which of these is verifiable through experimentation????

No, my possition is very clear and unchanging, the sea level rise in Galveston has been constant since they started measuring in 1909. There is no data to show that climate change has changed that rate.

If you have some other data, please present it. So far no one here has found any.

"Jason-1 extended Topex/Poseidon's record of global sea level rise, one of our most important indicators of climate change, into a second decade," said Lee-Lueng Fu, Jason-1 project scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., which manages the U.S. portion of the Jason-1 mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate in Washington. "The altimeter-observed geographic pattern of long-term sea level change is a landmark discovery of oceanography."

The Jason missions don't collect their observations in isolation, however. A National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration-supported ocean-profiling float project, called Argo, was created to collect observations measured directly from the ocean surface and to complement the Jason data. More recently, data from the NASA/German Aerospace Center's Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (Grace) mission have been combined with the altimetry data from Jason and Argo to give scientists a more complete picture of Earth's changing ocean, providing an important global observing system for sea level and ocean circulation studies.
