Sea Problem

Due to the global warming, Kiribati island measured 2 meter sea rise.

What is the amount of sea rise in Trieste? Of course, no local land erosion or something like that is assumed.

    It’s not water that’s rising, it’s bs:

    “The conclusive findings of this research are that the three GAST data sets are not a valid representation of reality. In fact, the magnitude of their historical data adjustments, that removed their cyclical temperature patterns, are totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data. Thus, it is impossible to conclude from the three published GAST data sets that recent years have been the warmest ever –despite current claims of record setting warming.”

    oops! from ef-gast-data-research-report-062717.pdf

    • I am perfectly aware of this. My point here with this problem has been, that a spilled glass of water into the sea, will go all over the globe. If the sea is locally higher at some places (which it is doe to the inhomogeneity of the crust), then this spilled water will “climb up”, to the watery hills, too. As the waters before also did. But not higher, than the gravity permits.

      On average, every sea rise is equal, all over the world. If there is any, of course. I suspect there isn’t any, momentarily. On the contrary, sea level is likely in a decrease now.
