    :rolleyes:

    Weren't we told that the oceans would increase by the global warming clowns?

    This blogger published his results using the public data and the public algorithm to analyze the data, on Feb 17th. This - was FIVE DAYS before the UNEXPLAINED retraction of a 2009 study that claims sea level will rise 82 cm by the end of the century. That "study" is here .

    Ocean levels decreasing is a sure sign of Global Warming.

    As monitored by tidal stations. Apperantly subduction activity not taken into account.

    Sea Level Trends

    The Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services has been measuring sea level for over 150 years, with tide stations operating on all U.S. coasts through the National Water Level Observation Network. Changes in Mean Sea Level (MSL), either a sea level rise or sea level fall, have been computed at 128 long-term water level stations using a minimum span of 30 years of observations at each location. These measurements have been averaged by month to remove the effect of high frequency phenomena, such as waves and tides, to compute an accurate linear sea level trend. The trend analysis has also been extended to a network of global tide stations including 114 additional non-NOAA stations.

    Why should subduction be taken into account? It is an ongoing process, irrespective of temperatures.

    Satellite measurements show sea-level is rising at 3.4 millimeters per year since these
    records began in 1993. This is 80% faster than the best estimate of the IPCC Third
    Assessment Report for the same time period.
    ❏❏ Accounting for ice-sheet mass loss, sea-level rise until 2100 is likely to be at least twice as
    large as that presented by IPCC AR4, with an upper limit of ~2m based on new ice-sheet
    understanding.

    You deniers just don't get it: If the sea level is rising, it is because of AGW. If the sea levels is falling, it is because of AGW. It is the modern equivalent of "pascals wager"....

    The process of subduction is like a slow motion collision. If you look at the map, you will see places in Alaska where the sea level seems to be decreasing right next to where it is increasing. That is the effect of the subduction zone. On the East Coast, where there is no subduction going on, the rate of rise is about the same for the whole coast, except the area at the mouth of the Mississippi, which is subsiding.

    Here in Portland, Oregon, we are both rising, and being pushed to the Northeast. Here is a USGS map that illustrates this better than I can explain it.

    Silly ass, by every measure, the sea level is rising.
