German scaremongers predict "one metre" sea level rise this century

Reported, as unquestioningly as ever, by the Sydney Morning Herald.

Citing UN date on climate change, two senior German scientists say that previous predictions were far too cautious and optimistic.

Earlier estimates predicted a rise of 18cm to 59cm in sea levels this century.

That estimate is woefully understated, according to Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, who heads the Potsdam Institute for Research on Global Warming Effects, and Jochem Marotzke, a leading meteorologist.

As usual, they cite the Arctic ice loss as the evidence, and ignore the facts that (i) Arctic ice has over 30% greater extent this year than at the same time last year, and (ii) despite Arctic ice decreasing over the past years, Antarctic ice has increased significantly over the same periods, and (iii) global temperatures have remained steady since at least 2001 and possibly earlier.

The earlier post “Climate Change Accelerating – hardly” seems an appropriate read.
