Aunty ABC Crass Ignorance

Jo Nova has posted an excellent analysis of the recent catastrophic rise in sea level scare peddled by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, ABC, here.

The sea level is rising at the rate of 0.043 +/- 0.058 mm/yr2 ?

This is actually ZERO.

And the rate is in hundedths of a millimetre which is unmeasurable.

The ABC has excelled itself at publishing junkscience and participating in pseudoscience.

This is simply pathetic but par for the course of the ABC and our politically correct Australian universities.

About Louis Hissink

Retired diamond exploration geologist. I spent my professional life looking for mineral deposits, found some, and also located a number of kimberlites in NSW and Western Australia. Exploration geology is the closest one can get to practicing the scientific method, mineral exploration always being concerned with finding anomalous geophysical or geochemical data, framing a model and explanation for the anomaly and then testing it with drilling or excavation. All scientific theories are ultimately false since they invariably involved explaining something with incomplete extant knowledge. Since no one is omniscient or knows everything, so too scientific theories which are solely limited to existing knowledge. Because the future always yields new data, scientific theories must change to be compatible with the new data. Thus a true scientist is never in love with any particular theory, always knowing that when the facts change, so too must he/she change their minds.
