THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: New paper finds global sea levels rising less than 7 inches per century
A recent paper reviewed by CO2 Science finds sea levels have risen over the past 9 years [2002-2011] at a rate of only 1.7 mm/yr, equivalent to 6.7 inches per century. The paper corroborates the NOAA 2012 Sea Level Budget which finds sea levels have risen at only 1.1-1.3 mm/yr over the past 7 years from 2005-2012 [less than 5 inches/century], and the paper of Chambers et al finding "sea level has been rising on average by 1.7 mm/year over the last 110 years." Contrary to alarmist claims, sea level rise decelerated over the 20th century, has also decelerated since 2005, and there is no evidence of any human influence on sea levels. Concomitantly, the air's CO2 concentration has risen by close to a third. And, still, it has not impacted the rate-of-rise of global sea level!

All fossil fuel exploration is a declaration of intent to consume. I'll know we're serious about climate change when exploration is banned
Ed Davey is holding the Coalition to ransom – Telegraph Blogs
[Helmer] Regardless of your views on anthropogenic global warming, the policies which you have promoted to mitigate climate change are clearly futile. They cannot deliver. And they are doing vast economic damage at a time when we are desperate for growth and economic recovery. Ed, it's time to abandon playground technologies like wind and solar, and to rely instead on grown-up, proven technologies like gas, coal, oil and nuclear.
