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.
