NASA Confirms Falling Sea Levels For Two Years Amidst Media Blackout

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by Mac Slavo via,

Most media outlets cannot be bothered to report something that dramatically deflates their narrative. So it goes without saying that when NASA confirmed that ocean levels have actually been falling for the past few years, the media would be more than silent.

As the global warming narrative quickly unravels, and leftists scramble to throw accusations at those who dare question the false data, the media brushes facts under the rug. Amidst revelations of scientific fraud, data alteration and faked “hockey stick” data models, the fake news media remains suspiciously silent over the fact that NASA now confirms ocean levels have been falling for nearly two years.

On a NASA page intended to spread climate alarmism (, NASA’s own data reveal that worldwide ocean levels have been falling for nearly two years, dropping from a variation of roughly 87.5mm to below 85mm. 

This data clearly contradicts the false narrative of rapid, never-ending rising ocean levels that flood continents and drown cities. The narrative is climate alarmists key element of the climate change fear mongering fiction that’s used to scare gullible youth into making Al Gore rich.

Global warming alarmists might say this is only a “pause” in the rising ocean levels, and that the long-term trend is clearly in the direction of rising oceans. However, these people wildly exaggerate the degree of ocean level increases to the point of absurdity and have been caught red-handed completely fabricating data to continue scaring the public into supporting a non-issue.

Even in a worse case scenario, sea levels will rise only about a foot over the next 100 years. That amount is far short of what climate alarmists would need to create an apocalyptic event based solely on the weather.  Looking at current events right now, we’d say that Armageddon would more likely be created by a world war or a global economic collapse. 

Even a warmer planet would be more hospitable to plants. But again, warmth as a benefit for plant life is not something climate alarmists want to hear. They need their backsides patted by the same lies.

Scientists have been warning of the danger of AGW since the 1950's. Has nothing to do with the fall of the former USSR, not even coincincidentally.

Water vapor is short-lived and regional in effect. But there will be more of it in a warmer atmosphere coming from warmer oceans, and it is an important feedback mechanism that amplifies the effects of carbon, the effects of which are long-lived.

The Department of Defense still sucks up a major portion of the US budget, despite the fall of the fomer USSR. Those dot-gov and dot-mill contractors still have the same old gravy train as always. The US simply manufactured new enemies in the form of al Qaeda and ISIS. There was never any need for a new boogey-man since the boogey-man factory never stopped working.

Aren't you one of the ones who claims that 'climate' changes? How can you be even reasonably sure that this is not the transition to an Ice Age? I don't think you can anymore than Al Gore can. To quote Al Franken, 'Lying liars lie'.

it was always "sea level change"

So that global warming shit won't hit the fan after all and nobody will drown. Pity!

As a devout warmist I was so excited about this news.

Yay! I was about to be proven wrong. We are going back into an Ice Age. An area of land bigger than Africa was going to be exposed, mostly in the tropics.

The nutrient blocking thermocline of the ocean was going to be destroyed. The ocean deserts were going to become fertile again.

The hordes of hominids from the Tropics were going to be driven out of Eurasia.

And then I saw the graph.

What a let down!

Oh, Ye prophets who strain at a gnat and swallow a camel.

I've been fishing the Galveston Jetties since 1966, and I can still see them above the always.

Since 1966 you say?
Does your boss know?

The real sea level is the one Al Gore measures. He bases it upon how well his balls float in the brine.

Real data is for losers...those who are unfaithful to the cause.....You just have to believe ...(Al Gore).

They're probably dropping because of Global Warming

As more Ice melts the level in the tank drops.

Citation? My experience is that the level doesn't change when the ice melts.

This is hilarious! Did yu see the trend? Its like a rocket ship! Then...a BLIP!...time to "cherry-pick"! LOOK! A "fact"...completely out of context, statistical noise, let's make as much out of this ONE FACT as we can...neglecting the NASA measurements of global temperature (all going up), the retreat of sea ice (extensive), the whittling away of ice shelves, the retreat of glaciers, the northward trek of tropical insects, diseases and fish... I have a AGW-denying friend who sends me this crap and it's getting PATHETIC! I don't have the space to adequately discuss AGW in detail, but, please...THINK! If AGW is a hoax, it would show up every fuc-ing day!! Not in isolated contra-factual news clips. If it's NOT getting warmer, why is the Arctic almost ice-free?

Check NASA's data for last few years of ice coverage, I think you'll be surprised;-)

cat2005's picture

We aren't measuring ice coverage in this articles. We are measuring sea water levels. The above article is a prime example of cherry-picking.

There might indeed be valid evidence against the "global climate change" issue but this is not it.

What happens when the ice in you're water glass melts...Does it overflow..Are you the one who decided sea levels don't get to change and if they fit you're particular narrative it's the end of world..

Is-Be's picture

Damnit, another genius!

My response regarding ice coverage was in reply to the commenters remark about ice coverage retreat. If you read the comment I responded to, you can make the connection I made;-)

There you are bringing Reality into the discussion.
What a party pooper.
This is Zerohedge.
We build models, fantasy castles in the sky about a world where there are no consequences, only NASCAR.

TheAnswerIs42's picture

What you call a rocket ship has been going on steadily since the end of the last Ice Age, 10,000 years ago.

It's caused by the planet generally getting warmer and the ice melting because the glacial period has ended.


In that time, there has been no acceleration in the rate of change.

It is linear.

The Earth's climate has been stable for over 4 billion years.

Globally, the human flea has had no measurable affect.

Except in the "models".

But ... but ... muh AlGore!


Tell me he isn't a lying liar lying!


Moving and Grooving's picture

Can you not understand that the issue is not AGW?


It's that all our above-reproach institutions have been caught lying to the people of America, over and over, and the media just regurgitates what they say without any skepticism? That lies tend to foster suspicion? That people who used to think there might be something to AGW are now think they're being manipulated by dicks like Gore for the singular purpose of raking in millions of taxpayer dollars for themselves?


That's the issue being discussed, not AGW.

Is-Be's picture

You are right!
It's a goldmine.
And it's gonna make me rich when I write my paper about how the climatologists forgot to factor in the Sun.

Woo wee. I'm so excited!

JailBanksters's picture

AGW is pseudoscience

The earths climate is determined largely by the object that is 98% of our solar systems mass, the Sun and not Earthlings.

The climate is constantly changing because the sun is constantly changing. The earth adapts to the sun, not the other way round.

And like it or not, we are heading into a Mini-Iceage, and no amount of people driving SUV's is going to stop it.

Is-Be's picture

Of cause! The Sun!
I'm going to be famous.
Just wait until I write my paper showing that the climatologist forgot the Sun!

Woo Wee! I'm gonna be rich, rich, beyond me wildest dreams.

So where did all the water go?

It went here

Thanks, it's been a long time, since the Great Artesian Basin got refilled, 65 thousand cubic kilometers of water, about 3 times as much as the Great Lakes, and 15% of the water in the Mediterranean.

Thanks dudes.

SHHHHHHH.  Don't tell anyone,  .but global warming is a giant load of horse shit.  (Whispered in NASA"s board room)

Global Warming is a fraud and a litmus test of one's intellect and intelligence.

Stick with it Barney baby.
And don't go anywhere near a book written by Margaret Heffernan called "Wilful Blindness".

It will suck the very marrow from bones of your illusions.

Yah, but you know--yardsticks have been getting longer simply making it look like the sea is receding.  As a layperson, you're forgiven for not understanding how that could possibly be.  And once NASA "corrects" the data for the insidious expanding yardsticks it will be proof positive that sea levels are rising and the whole place is turning into a flaming living hell. 

frontierland's picture

So, the Sea Level's rising, it's dropping, it's all Climate Change stupid goyim.

Don't worry, we can take White peoples money and give it to Dindu Africanis, (((Goldman))) has it all worked out!

They may want to check those sea levels again. I just took a piss that seemed to take forever. Had to take the clock down and put up a calendar.

I don't know if the author pretends to be stupid or is actually stupid or uneducated. It is in any case a pity that zerohedge accepts such trash for publication.

Birds Of A Feather...'s picture

I have lived on the water in St Petersburg, Fl for 30 years and I have seen a rise of about 6-8" nominally at my dock. From what I've seen in the last 30 years, it's a rising... And in Miami, Key Largo and a few other areas that are now experiencing frequent flooding... I thinks it's rising.

Baron von Bud's picture

The water appears to be rising by your dock but not because the sea is rising. The US Atlantic coast and land around Florida is sinking lower. That's a geological fact. Earth's plates push and shove against each other and some areas go down.


Factotum's picture

You are really so stupid that you can not even understand this graph?  You really do not see the long term trend?  As long as you are pointing out decreasing sea levels why did you not point out the one from 2010 to 2012 which was over twice the size of the current one; almost 10 mm vs your 2.5 mm.   And the answer to the first question is yes.  You are, quite literally, dumber than almost all life forms on the planet including fish, insects, plants, and bacteria, all of which are moving to cooler climates by migrating towards the poles or higher elevations.
