Where’s The Acceleration?
Eduardo at Hans von Storch’s website has a short piece on sea level rise, asking: “Where’s the acceleration?” http://klimazwiebel.blogspot.com/2010/04/cant-you-see-acceleration.html. That’s a good question. Eduardo goes on to say:
For those of you who may be wondering, this fit implies a 95% probability for 35 cm or less of sea-level rise in 2100.
Eduardo warns, however, that one should not take this too seriously. But I think you can certainly take him more seriously than the projected sea level rises of 1 or 2 meters over the next 100 years. I have yet to find a single scientist willing to put his money down on a sea level rise of 6+ mm/ year over the next 10 years. Not one.
