The LA Times and other left-wing rags are bending over backwards to try and save the AGW cult from total humiliation. With AR5 coming and newspapers coming out with stories about the “pause” that the lefty papers ignored for 15 years, they are panicking.
“Bill Patzert of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge, say sea level rise is “unequivocal proof” that greenhouse gases are continuing to heat the planet, and that much of this added heat is being absorbed by the oceans.”
“But there’s been no slowdown whatsoever in sea level rise, so global warming is alive and well.”
Poor old Bill seems to be dumber than a post because he conveniently “forgets” about 2010 and 2011.
Lets go back a whole month! Another left-wing rag (the Guardian) tries to explain why sea level dropped in 2010/2011.
“Rain – in effect, evaporated ocean – fell in such colossal quantities during the Australian floods in 2010 and 2011 that the world’s sea levels actually dropped by as much as 7mm.”
Poor old Bill seems to have forgotten that sea level dropped for 2 years.
And the real joke is that if too much rain over Australia caused sea level to fall despite the massive increase in anthropogenic CO2, why couldn’t too little rain in Australia have caused a sea level rise?
Instead of doing science, the AGW Cult specializes in making up stupid excuses why their predictions are not coming true!
It’s too bad NASA and JPL have now beclowned themselves again trying to support a dying cult.
