Future Holds Less Sea Level Rise But More Intense Weather According to Kings College

London, UK...New climate models from King's suggest that future sea level rise could be much lower than previously feared but more severe weather may be in store over the next 100 years. This conclusion is made in two pieces of research from King’s College London, Victoria University of Wellington, and colleagues across the US, Canada, UK and Europe.




The first piece of research suggests that sustained collapse of Antarctic ice-cliffs, caused by rising global temperatures and melting ice shelves, may not have a large impact on sea level rise. This means that controversial predictions made in 2016, which claimed that this type of collapse could add more than a metre to rising seas by 2100, may be substantially over-estimated.

Dr Tamsin Edwards, Lecturer in Physical Geography at King’s College London, who led the work, says: ‘We looked in detail at ice-losses 3 million years ago, 125,000 years ago, and over the last 25 years, and found that these ice-cliff collapses aren’t needed to reproduce sea level rises in the past.

‘This suggests that they might not be an important feature in predicting sea level rises in the future.’

By reassessing previous predictions and removing unstable cliff collapse from their calculations, they predict that it is unlikely that melting from the Antarctic will cause sea level to rise more than 39 cm by 2100. This is much lower than previous predictions.

In a second piece of research, led by Associate Professor Nick Golledge from Victoria University of Wellington and co-authored by Dr Edwards, they show that current climate models do not consider the full effect of melting ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica. It illustrates that the melting will slow the Atlantic ocean circulation, and trap warm water below the surface in the Southern Ocean leading to more Antarctic ice loss. The ice sheet melting also increases temperature variability in both the atmosphere and oceans, which could result in more frequent extreme weather events.

Associate Professor Golledge says: "Melt from these ice sheets is going to significantly disrupt the global climate making temperatures in some areas vary much more from one year to the next. This unpredictability is going to prove extremely disruptive for all of us, and will make adaptation and planning much more difficult".

      This report ain't worth two wet cigarettes anyway.
      It's from Kings College in the UK who were party to the Hockey Stick Climate Hoax about six or seven years ago.

      Same Old Agenda of Commies and Democrats.

      Its not global warming you idiots, its Climate Change. The introduction of high amounts of greenhouse gases, mostly produced by humans, has changed our atmosphere. To the point of much bigger storms, higher temperatures, changing of jet stream patterns, etc., etc. Anyone with half a brain can see the damage we are doing to our weather enviornment. So that eliminates Trump and the vast majority of his followers. Only a true idiot will deny Climate Change brought on by man and his disastorous introduction of greenhouse gases into our atmosphere. Trump is too much of a self centered moron to realize it. He is just protecting the energy companies, destroying oversights and regulations, and next on his agenda will be allowing oil companies to do their thing in federally controlled lands, as in NP's and wildernesses. Say goodbye to mother earth as we know it.

        The earth is billions of years old or older, Humans have had heavy industry for 150 yrs approx, But we think we are so special that what we do is going to change the Earth in 150 years. Get over yourself. We aren't significant enough to make a difference. Go push your stupid agenda to somebody who cares, quit trying to defeat America via guilt from their prosperity. Why do you hate this country so much, who cares who the president is, Climate Change, Socialist people HATE America and what it has done in the last 250 years.

        I might believe Climate change if a Iceberg floats up to my house in Angels Camp, but other than that, talk your nonsense to your stupid cronies.

          Wow. Scary level of ignorance exhibited in that post.

          The earth has been around for a very long time but it was not a hospitable place for much of that time. By releasing CO2 that has been trapped for millennia as fossil fuels and in frozen tundra humans are entirely capable of shifting the earth back into a very inhospitable place.

          Humans are way past the primitive cave man stage where we existed on earth without significantly changing earth. With modern technology humans are certainly capable of ruining earth as a place to live as we live now. There are already island nations where the population is forced to move because of sea level rise. And extreme weather events are well-documented to be more frequent.

          And for the record, I do not hate America or its prosperity. I would like America to be the leader it can be in saving the planet. It can't be that when one political party is owned by fossil fuel interests and populated by know-nothings such as you.

            You are correct.
            If God didn't want CO2 in the atmosphere, humans wouldn't exhale CO2. Animals either, for that matter.
            Plants need CO2 to survive, so we need to keep pumping that harmful petroleum out of the ground and burning it.
            That way we can move more CO2 around........faster.

            DANGI I shoulda bought a V-8!

        Trump said climate change is not real. Because his uncle was a scientist and told him so. Do republicans actually believe he has qualifications to be president. Because, he is a complete idiot.
