Could Global Warming Slow Sea Level Rise?, by S. Fred Singer


From the American Thinker, June 6, 2013

Key Points:

  • Four IPCC reports (1990, 1996, 2001 and 2007) indicated vastly different assessments of SLR (Sea Level Rise) projections
  • Recent data provides support for the hypothesis that “the observed global SLR since 1900 is reasonably independent of the observed temperature rise.”
  • “Can Global Warming (GW) really lower sea level rise?  It all depends on the time-scale:  Yes, if GW lasts only for some decades or less. No, if warmer temperatures persist for millennia.”


S.  Fred Singer is professor emeritus at the University of Virginia and director of  the Science & Environmental Policy Project.  His specialty is  atmospheric and space physics.   An expert in remote sensing and  satellites, he served as the founding director of the US Weather Satellite  Service and, more recently, as vice chair of the US National Advisory Committee  on Oceans & Atmosphere.  He is a Senior Fellow of the Heartland  Institute and the Independent Institute.  He co-authored the NY Times  best-seller “Unstoppable Global Warming: Every 1500 years.”  In 2007, he  founded and has since chaired the NIPCC (Nongovernmental International Panel on  Climate Change), which has released several scientific reports [See].   For recent writings see and  also Google Scholar.
