    A consistent link exists between changes in global mean surface temperature and sea level, resulting in a greater rate of sea-level rise along the U.S. Atlantic coast than that of the past 2,000 years, says an international research team.

    “Sea-level rise is a potentially disastrous outcome of climate change, as rising temperatures melt land-based iced and warm ocean waters,” says Benjamin Horton, associate professor and director of the Sea Level Research Laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania.

    Horton and Andrew Kemp, fellow postdoctoral now at Yale University’s Climate and Energy Institute conducted the research which was published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on June 20.

    The team constructed a new 2,000-year history of seal level elevations, which will help scientists refine the models currently used to predict climate-change-induced sea level rise.

    By combining the sea level changes through time with the already established temperature record for the past 1,000 years, researchers were able to create a model that is partly based on observations, and matches what occurred historically. Future changes in sea level can therefore be predicted.

    Results from the study showed that sea level was relatively stable from 200 B.C. to 1,000 A.D.

    Sea level rose by almost half a millimeter a year for 400 years starting in the 11th century, known as the Medieval Climate Anomaly, when the climate started to warm, say researchers.

    Then a second period of stable sea level associated with a cooler period known as the Little Ice Age occurred and lasted until the late 19th Century.

    The study says that since the 19th Century, sea level has risen by more than 2 millimeters per year on average, which is considered the steepest rate for more than 2,100 years.

    At the current rate of increase, we expect the Bahamas to disappear under a heap of bullshit 5 miles deep within a decade. Other effects of chronic bullshit deepening include pasty Minnesotans not getting suntans, steaks in Kansas City tasting like crap, and Detroit continuing to smell awful.

    yet another staggering failure of peer review! M Mann has produce yet another Hockey Stick graph, and to make things even worse he is STILL using the upsidedown Tiljander cores!

    how is the ordinary layperson supposed to know that papers like these are contaminated with the voodoo science of Mann and the rest of the hockey team when peer review wont even stop the same errors from being used time after time?

    But Ian,

    If they actually reverted to real peer review they couldn't get the grants they want. If they had to do real science they would starve.

    at least the Medieval Warm Period is being acknowledged even though they find it necessary to call it 'M Climate Anomoly'. hahaha

    Maybe because they aren't errors.

    Hell, they've now resorted to citing advocacy groups like Greenpeace as "peer reviewed'.

    What's up with THIS!

    Did we have another round of purging from the eco-left Bible? I've only heard this called this called the Medieval WARM Period..

    I have peer reviewed this post and find it 100% accurate

    What happened to the "Isostatic Climactic Glacier Rebound"?

    Isn't having Michael Mann continuing to do "scientific research" a lot like hiring Bernie Madoff as your CFO?
