- Bishop Hill blog - More or less bonkers
Alex Cull has posted a transcript of yesterday's More or Less show on the BBC, which had a segment on climate refugees. It seems that Labour's Chris Bryant has been citing a study that has long since been debunked and which is so embarrassingly wrong that even COIN and the UN have disowned it.

MSL during the last interglacial, the Eemian (MIS 5e), peaked twice above present MSL. The first peak was at least 6.6 meters higher, and the second was least 4 meters higher, with temperatures that naturally peaked at least 3°C higher. All without any AGW help. The first Eemian rise above present MSL took about 3 millennia (22cm/century), and the first refreeze about back to it took about 4 millennia (16.5cm/century). Typical maximum melt/freeze rates, it seems.
