IPCC sea level prediction – not scary enough

IPCC sea level prediction – not scary enough“. How dare the scientists improve their sea level predictions and come up with higher values! They must be using a trick. Anthony Watts just copies and pastes the Niels Bohr Institute news release about a forthcoming paper in Geophysical Research Letters and counts on his readers to rage in the comments.

Recent studies agree that sea level will rise by roughly one meter over this century for a mid- range emission scenario.

The IPCC’s sea level predictions are considered very conservative by many climatologists, although you wouldn’t think so from the denialist accusations. The new data and models suggest a rough tripling of the expected 100 year sea level rise.
