I say the solution to GW is corks. Big, huge, gigantic corks. It would also solve the unemployment problem. Can you imagine how many corkers will be needed in just New Zealnd. Well have to have special training for these cork insertors though. I suspect there will be differences in corking the rear end of a sheep as apposed to cows. Thinking about it I believe we will need a Government sponsored study on how best to shove a cork into various livestock.

Any one interested in setting up a research body for Government funding with me. I think we'll call the it, Gone With The Wind Global Warming Institute.

They'd have to be threaded corks.. else they'd just pop when shaken..

Now we are talking. That's the kind of science we need for our Gone With The Wind GW Institute. If you can draw a mechanical drawing I can put it in our Government Grant submission. Yah. I've found my first scientist for our Institute.

I believe Cork Screw is already taken..

A slowing of the rate is not a falling sea level.

A decade of sea level rise slowed by climate-driven hydrology | Science

Sea level continues to rise.

A report on the study

Parched Earth soaks up water, slowing sea level rise: study
The slowing down is so significant it that if trend lines continue it will become a reverse hockey stick and we will end up like ocean less Mars. I love how the alarmists project irrational horror and make it look like science. It must be a big worry that Manhattan and Miami aren't going to disappear like Atlantis any time soon in the next multible centuries.

Let me look into it. Perhaps if we come up with a novel way of describing the threads. Also if no one has patented an anti clockwise screw thread we could have a winner. We just patent the anti clickwise with a latex thread. What's the worst that could happen at the USPTO. They could tell us to go screw ourselves.

That spin will will work well with your "cork screw."

This has to be true because it explains the reason I grounded on a bommie last year. I was blaming my own incompetence, which I must admit I found difficult to accept, but now it all makes perfect sense!

Absolutely. It's all this Global Changing that is not being taken into account by the chart plotter makers. Very very serious sutuation.

Falling Sea Level

Sea level has been falling on the Atlantic seaboard for the past six years.

Really" You post the mythical Steve Goddard's bogus, cherry-picked disinformation. I suppose you use his data for for tidal heights as well.

++++++++++++++++++++

Hansen's off-the-cuff forecast was based on doubling of CO2 which has not happened.

James Hansen made his statement in response to a question by Bob Reiss, a journalist and author, in 1988. He did not predict that the West Side Highway would be underwater in 20 years.

Bob Reiss reports the conversation as follows:

"When I interviewed James Hansen I asked him to speculate on what the view outside his office window could look like in 40 years with doubled CO2. I'd been trying to think of a way to discuss the greenhouse effect in a way that would make sense to average readers. I wasn't asking for hard scientific studies. It wasn't an academic interview. It was a discussion with a kind and thoughtful man who answered the question. You can find the description in two of my books, most recently The Coming Storm."

James Hansen reports the conversation as follows:

"Reiss asked me to speculate on changes that might happen in New York City in 40 years assuming CO2 doubled in amount."

Here is a name that just might work
The methane reducing inclined plane wrapped around a central axis for the reduction of gw gasses in livestock. ( remember the fancier it sounds the easier it is to patent.)

It is a "short term methane inhibitor". That might give you a better acronym.
