Hunkering Down

At http://notrickszone.com/2018/03/25/alarmism-takes-a-big-hit-flood-of-new... ... the headline reads, Alarmism takes a Big Hit: a flood of new scientific findings show nothing unusual happening on climate. For example, one papers shows quite clearly modern temperatures are not much different from those in the Roman Warm Period or the Medieval Warm Period, a fact that keeps popping up that alarmists like to ignore. Different papers deal with different regions of the world - from Europe to South Africa, Australia, Alaska, Tibet, South Korea, Antarctica (and many others). Another paper on Greenland shows that recent warming is lower than in the 1930s - and since 2000 Greenland temperatures have actually been falling.

At http://notrickszone.com/2018/03/26/groundbreaking-new-paper-finds-global... ... a new paper finds global warming and ice melt (from glaciers) are not related to sea level. Geophysicist and tectonics researcher Aftab Khan has unearthed a massive fault in the current understanding of rapid sea level rise and its relationship to warming and ice melt. He says the two have little to nothing to do with each other. It seems that land height changes are a bigger factor - subsidence (sinking) and uplift (rising). These, he says, are connected to the Earth's gravitational attracting and its shifting plates (or fault zones), which he claims dominates sea level rise and fall. He is basically debunking the idea that thermal expansion from rising ocean heat heat contributes to a rise in global sea levels. This. he says, is conjecture - pretty damning. His argument is that predominantly, it is geology that causes sea levels changes not global warming.
