Idiotic Journalism # 1
The headline in the UK Daily Mail the other day… “Sea will rise ‘to levels of last Ice Age‘”.
Okay, that makes an impact. And as I’m no climate scientist, and I still have some faith (call me stupid) in the respected tradition of journalism, I’m going to believe this.
But, thanks to Real Climate, where the journalistic tradition of accurate and objective reporting is still respected, … sea level during last Ice Age was 120 metres lower than it is today. (Yes, lower…)
For an objective summary of the risk and extent of sea level rise see this review of the IPCC AR4 Sea Level Findings from Real Climate.
