An elderly Austrian can still surprise us
I had no idea that there were so many "issues" with the measurement of sea level. But Fred Singer sets it out below. We basically don't know what sea level has been doing in recent decades
Climate Models cannot explain why global warming has slowed « JoNova
As far as I can tell, the models are not matching the turning points in the trends (because CO2 emissions don’t match the turning points in the trends), which means that it doesn’t matter how much the slope of the line is increased or decreased, it still won’t fit the data. It means they don’t understand what factors drove those changes. They have no paddle.

“In fact here in California on the Central Coast, we’ve actually seen temperatures steady or slightly falling for annual temperatures over the last ten years,” said Logan Johnson, a Warning Coordination Meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

#WarOnCoal Escalates: Over 200 Power Plants Expected to Close, Thousands of Jobs to Disappear | Energy & Commerce Committee
The administration’s war on coal and America’s abundant, reliable energy continues to gain momentum as the nation’s power sector faces an increasingly hostile regulatory environment. Reuters recently chronicled that more than 200 of the nation’s coal-fired power plants have announced plans to retire over the next decade in addition to the 138 units that have already shut down in the past five years. Estimates project this decline in coal-fired power generation could result in the loss of up to 100,000 megawatts of electricity across the country.

Coal is one of America’s most abundant and affordable sources of fuel and supports over 700,000 American jobs.
