CLIMATE & SEA-LEVEL CHANGE:
NOT CAUSED BY CO2

From November 2016 until now (July 2019), I have spent most of my time conducting self-funded (thus UNBIASED) exhaustive literature research on ALL sciences relevant to climate- and sea-level change, e.g. geophysics, glaciology, oceanography, astrophysics, meteorology, archaeology and especially geology (the most relevant science of all, entirely neglected by the UNITED NATIONS Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, IPCC), as opposed to just 'climate science', a new generalist pseudo-science that: (A) benefits hugely from (and largely created) the man-made or ‘anthropogenic’ global warming (AGW) scare (the CO2 Delusion); (B) is grossly over-reliant on computer climate models whose stack of assumptions (guesses) renders them useless; and (C) is blinkered by its very short-term view back in time (decades; cf. geologists' billions of years).

My three overriding conclusions will surprise you: (1) metre-scale sea-level rise is coming (3 to 5 m between now and 2100, perhaps even as soon as 2050); (2) the responsible global warming (melting Antarctic glaciers) was caused by the sun (not CO2); and (3) warming ended in 2016, but Antarctic melting will continue (‘ocean memory’; see below).

THE EVIDENCE? There is overwhelming global geological and archaeological evidence, ignored by the IPCC (no geologists or archaeologists), for a rapid (30-100 years?) sea-level rise of 3 to 5 metres between 350 and 450AD (early Dark Ages), after a Roman-age 'Grand Maximum' of the sun caused collapse of Antarctica's ice-sheet rim by impingement of over-warmed ocean water, delayed a few decades by ocean thermal inertia and 'conveyor-belt' circulation (both ignored in IPCC’s computer models). The sun's ONLY subsequent comparable Grand Maximum, 1500 years later, has just ended (1937-2004) and, predictably, Antarctic's edge is NOW disintegrating again (e.g. my photo below). The clock is ticking. The coming 3 to 5 metre sea-level rise is unstoppable; and it has already begun - see steepening (acceleration) of NASA’s two sea-level charts (based on satellite radar & tide gauges respectively) here … Weblink
ONCE AGAIN, THIS IS SOLAR-DRIVEN, NOTHING TO DO WITH CO2. However, the IPCC, saying no sea-level oscillation between 0 AD and 1800 exceeded 25cm (sic), claims that the 30cm rise measured (by tide gauges) since 1800 is exceptional and therefore must be due to man (CO2)! Be astonished and very angry.

Email me to arrange a private presentation (at your premises and anywhere else you choose) if you worry that:

(1) your CO2 emissions are 'pollution' … they aren't;

(2) sea-level rise will flood your seaside home, nuclear power plant, harbour, airport, corporate HQ, hotel chain, missile test range, or atoll complete with towns and (Bikini) nuclear waste dump … it will.

That's the bad news. The good news?

(A) CO2 is innocent … Weblink

(B) Earth is now cooling. Global warming (by the same Grand Maximum, its effect delayed by ocean thermal inertia) ended in February 2019 - scroll down to NASA's global MONTHLY temperature chart, the third from bottom in the list here … Weblink
However, sea level will continue to rise, delayed by ocean circulation (see above).

For more of the science, see my numerous 2016-2019 ‘Technical Notes’, mostly single diagrams and half-page conference abstracts, aimed at scientists and non-scientists alike, here on ResearchGate … Weblink


Antarctica’s ice-sheet fringe is being rapidly melted by upwelling of Atlantic water ‘overwarmed’ by the recent solar ’Grand Maximum’ (1937-2003). The water’s arrival is delayed a few decades by ocean thermal inertia and by ’conveyor belt’ circulation, whereby overwarmed surface water is downwelled in the north Atlantic and then travels southward at depth along the entire length of the Atlantic.
