Peter Gleick: Sea-level rise will be exponential

  1. Just not in any way we can measure or observe.

  2. How the hell does Gleick have the balls even to open his mouth in public, much less post anything online?

  3. If the Gleickmeister could bulldoze the continents into the oceans to get his higher sea levels, he would do it.

  4. the only thing rising exponentially here is Gleick’s warmist hysteria.

  5. I love the cute acronym SLR. Except that one is already taken

      Ain’t it just? The L1A1 Self-Loading Rifle, one of the last genuine battle rifles to see widespread use, and still one of the most aesthetically pleasing longarms ever to have been manufactured.

      • Introducing a new gun – The Gleick. Just like a Glock, but you have to cock it halfway.

      • I was thinking “single-lens reflex”, myself, but okay. L1A1 is a nice weapon.
        Oh, oh, Gleick and sea level. Well, as tennisfan points out, sea level is rising below the levels reported fifty years ago, so that’s a kink in the story. And Dr. Gleick is a felon who manufactured a document to attack those who disagree with him, so his credibility has problems.

    • And . . . Sport Leicht Rennsport.

  6. Apparently Gleick knows where all the water went after Noah’s flood, and believes it is coming back.

  7. Looks like the extreme and intermediate rises are out as of now. He really shouldn’t use an old chart that can be shown invalid. So, other than tadchem’s biblical epoch, where is that amount of ice melting, or are we counting on thermal expansion?
