Yet another fake claim by the warm-mongers is shot down. Well, actually, recanted. Reported in the Guardian no less.
Scientists have been forced to withdraw a study on projected sea level rise due to global warming after finding mistakes that undermined the findings.
The study, published in 2009 in Nature Geoscience, one of the top journals in its field, confirmed the conclusions of the 2007 report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It used data over the last 22,000 years to predict that sea level would rise by between 7cm and 82cm by the end of the century.
At the time, Mark Siddall, from the Earth Sciences Department at the University of Bristol, said the study “strengthens the confidence with which one may interpret the IPCC results”. The IPCC said that sea level would probably rise by 18cm-59cm by 2100, though stressed this was based on incomplete information about ice sheet melting and that the true rise could be higher.
Gosh, the taste of crow must be awfully dire, eh? All these AGW pimps are having to change their story in the wake of Climate Gate. So much for their doomsday predictions. No wonder Gore and company have been awfully quiet lately.
