For those who are worried about rising sea-levels, the data released last week from the University of Colorado is welcome news. This data shows a significant slowing down in the rate of sea-level rise in recent years, rather than the acceleration predicted by the global warming theory. The test of a scientific theory is whether it’s predictions are true, so this is a significant setback for global-warming proponents. But it is goods news for the Dunedin City Council because it means that there is no urgency in the rising sea-level issue, so spending can be delayed until measurements show that sea-level rise is accelerating. I believe that University of Colorado is the most respected source for global sea-level data. If you believe that there is a better data elsewhere, then let me know.
