Fine-tuning bad news. Recent statistical analysis finds sea levels are rising faster now than at any time in nearly 3,000 years.

Alex DeMetrick reports that’s not good news for Maryland. Maryland is vulnerable to sea level rise on two fronts: the Atlantic and along the Chesapeake Bay. A new study finds world wide…

Do you see any hint of change in the rate of sea level rise in the last 100+ years? Here, we can even look at the data with the linear increase taken out:

See any hint of recent acceleration due to global warming? If sea level now is rising faster than any time in the last 3000 years, it's clearly not due to CO2 induced warming, which, according even to global warming proponents, has only become significant since about 1950.
