Flannery's Fools - Useless Tools.

Flannery's Fools, AKA The Climate Council need counselling. They have issued an Alarmist report:

Climate Change and Coastal Flooding

Perhaps they have been caught napping,

According to the National Geographic, itself a warmist organisation: (link)

The rise in sea levels is linked to three primary factors, all induced by this ongoing global climate change: 
Thermal expansion: When water heats up, it expands. About half of the past century's rise in sea level is attributable to warmer oceans simply occupying more space. 
Melting of glaciers and polar ice caps: Large ice formations, like glaciers and the polar ice caps, naturally melt back a bit each summer. But in the winter, snows, made primarily from evaporated seawater, are generally sufficient to balance out the melting. Recently, though, persistently higher temperatures caused by global warming have led to greater-than-average summer melting as well as diminished snowfall due to later winters and earlier springs. This imbalance results in a significant net gain in runoff versus evaporation for the ocean, causing sea levels to rise. 
Ice loss from Greenland and West Antarctica: As with glaciers and the ice caps, increased heat is causing the massive ice sheets that cover Greenland and Antarctica to melt at an accelerated pace. Scientists also believe meltwater from above and seawater from below is seeping beneath Greenland's and West Antarctica's ice sheets, effectively lubricating ice streams and causing them to move more quickly into the sea. Moreover, higher sea temperatures are causing the massive ice shelves that extend out from Antarctica to melt from below, weaken, and break off.
Let's examine these three causes of sea level rise:

Thermal Expansion

As there has been no global warming for 18 years, this cannot be a factor.

Melting of Glaciers and Polar Ice Caps

A check will find that most glaciers have stopped retreating with many advancing. (Link

Polar Ice is also increasing. Latest data show that Arctic Sea Ice is getting thicker and Antarctic sea ice continues to expand (link) See also "our" ABC - link

Ice Loss Greenland and West Antarctica

As more and more real world evidence disproves the Man Made climate change hoax, Alarmists, like the Climate Council come out with more and more Alarm. This only makes them more and more comical.


  1. The main question is are they Clowns or crooks?

    1. If they believe their alarmist propaganda, then they definitely are FOOLS.

      BUT, it is so unreal....does that make them CLOWNS?

      Nope! FOOLS.

  2. I find it laughable when body's like the climate council report that the melting of the North Polar ice cap and the Antarctic ice shelf is raising sea levels. These areas are sea ice (frozen sea) and therefore cannot possibly raise sea levels

    1. Robert,

      You are right (and wrong)

      North Polar Ice Cap (floating ice) cannot raise sea levels. The test is - put an ice cube in a glass of water and mark the level. When the ice has melted see that the level on the side of the glass hasn't risen.

      However, the West Antarctic Ice shelf is sitting on a solid peninsula and so, if it melts, theoretically sea levels will rise.

      However, Don Easterbrook's paper (linked above) disproves the melting of the West Antarctica Peninsula.

      Thnaks for your great comment!

  3. Wonder if Tim's still got his waterfront home, or has he sensibly moved to a beach house in the Blue Mountains?

  4. There is another source of sea level rise, pumped groundwater from aquifers

  5. You make this blog look like it supports science yet you make a unfounded claim that man made climate change is a hoax. I mean... where is your evidence that it is a hoax using the dictionary definition of the word hoax.

  6. THE Hypothesis is that human emissions of carbon dioxide are causing runaway global warming. There has been no warming for 18 years although atmospheric CO2 keeps rising.

    Google "agw a falsified hypothesis." Many falsifications and yet, scientifically, only one is needed.
