Here’s one of the source articles for the note you provided the link to which provides a rather fuller summary—
https://earther.com/theres-an-enormo...sea-1819043047

I think this is a first for you, citing discussion of peer-reviewed science by mainstream scientists rather than the outbursts of poorly credentialed authors with far-right axes to grind that you usually favor us with. The next step is to familiarize yourself with how good science is conducted: Data are collected and analyzed, with those in apparent conflict with well-supported established science (AGW in this case) giving rise to new hypotheses (doubtless underway as we speak) and further research. Happens so routinely with research into highly complex phenomena like global warning as to be a hallmark. So, no cause for alarm yet. . ..

If this doesn’t satisfy you, and you continue to pant for pie charts summing up truths universally acknowledged, you’ll have to dive back into the quackerysphere where they’re 10 for a penny.
Haha - made you look you dirty chook! :)

"citing ..... the intemperate outbursts of poorly credentialed authors with far-right axes to grind" !! Whatchutalkinbout Willis! ...... surely you have me confused with literally every other person (real and imagined! :) that is Against you.

Thanks for the tip on the scientific method - gawd only knows how I muddled through my Doctorate without it !!!!!! *uncontrollable fits of laughter*

C’mon, a “doctorate” (excuse me, “Doctorate”) in business administration, that most mickey-mouse of degrees! For a small fee you can get one through the mail! What did you write your dissertation on—you did write a dissertation didn’t you?—pie charts?

AGW, a new scenario. Without strong reduction of man-caused carbon emissions, projected sea-level rise could be even worse than previously imagined. . ..
