Sea Levels Are Rising 10 Times Faster Than Predicted And Will Soon Reshape The Globe

Catastrophic sea level rise is not an if, but a when. In reality, it is already well underway and getting worse rapidly. Even the newly released study that makes clear oceans are rising 10 times faster than previous estimates still likely falls far short of the true gravity of what is unfolding. Those that are still desperately clinging to their denial of global climate engineering will be forced to face their fears very soon, countless converging climate related cataclysms are closing in on us all. Governments around the globe have long since collaborated and fully deployed global climate engineering programs, they absolutely knew what was coming. The paradox is this, available data indicates climate engineering is actually making the overall warming far worse, not better (while at the same time irreparably contaminating the entire planet in the process). Recent studies prove solar radiation management can't work and will thus only exacerbate an already bad climate scenario. What will the US southern and eastern coasts look like as the seas overtake low lying lands, the map below is sobering and yet is only a tiny glimpse of the overall calamity of biosphere collapse now faced by the human race.

When all the ice deposits around the globe melt (and this is the fast track that we are on) , the total sea level rise is in the vicinity of 80 meters. The power structure is trying desperately to hide what is unfolding from public for as long as possible for obvious reasons, it is up to each and every one of us to bring the critical climate engineering issue to the light of day. The article below is the most recent study update from the front lines. Though climate engineering is not mentioned in this latest study (as is the case with so many publications which are as of yet afraid to speak the whole truth), data presented is still relevant.

Earth's Most Famous Climate Scientist Issues Bombshell Sea Level Warning

Source: Mother Jones, article by Eric Holthaus​

In what may prove to be a turning point for political action on climate change, a breathtaking new study casts extreme doubt about the near-term stability of global sea levels.

sealevel

The study—written by James Hansen, NASA's former lead climate scientist, and 16 co-authors, many of whom are considered among the top in their fields—concludes that glaciers in Greenland and Antarctica will melt 10 times faster than previous consensus estimates, resulting in sea level rise of at least 10 feet in as little as 50 years. The study, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, brings new importance to a feedback loop in the ocean near Antarctica that results in cooler freshwater from melting glaciers forcing warmer, saltier water underneath the ice sheets, speeding up the melting rate. Hansen, who is known for being alarmist and also right, acknowledges that his study implies change far beyond previous consensus estimates. In a conference call with reporters, he said he hoped the new findings would be "substantially more persuasive than anything previously published." I certainly find them to be.

To come to their findings, the authors used a mixture of paleoclimate records, computer models, and observations of current rates of sea level rise, but "the real world is moving somewhat faster than the model," Hansen says.

Hansen's study does not attempt to predict the precise timing of the feedback loop, only that it is "likely" to occur this century. The implications are mindboggling: In the study's likely scenario, New York City—and every other coastal city on the planet—may only have a few more decades of habitability left. That dire prediction, in Hansen's view, requires "emergency cooperation among nations."

We conclude that continued high emissions will make multi-meter sea level rise practically unavoidable and likely to occur this century. Social disruption and economic consequences of such large sea level rise could be devastating. It is not difficult to imagine that conflicts arising from forced migrations and economic collapse might make the planet ungovernable, threatening the fabric of civilization.

The science of ice melt rates is advancing so fast, scientists have generally been reluctant to put a number to what is essentially an unpredictable, nonlinear response of ice sheets to a steadily warming ocean. With Hansen's new study, that changes in a dramatic way. One of the study's co-authors is Eric Rignot, whose own study last year found that glacial melt from West Antarctica now appears to be "unstoppable." Chris Mooney, writing for Mother Jones, called that study a "holy shit" moment for the climate.

One necessary note of caution: Hansen's study comes via a nontraditional publishing decision by its authors. The study will be published in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, an open-access "discussion" journal, and will not have formal peer review prior to its appearance online later this week. The complete discussion draft circulated to journalists was 66 pages long, and included more than 300 references. The peer review will take place in real time, with responses to the work by other scientists also published online. Hansen said this publishing timeline was necessary to make the work public as soon as possible before global negotiators meet in Paris later this year. Still, the lack of traditional peer review and the fact that this study's results go far beyond what's been previously published will likely bring increased scrutiny. On Twitter, Ruth Mottram, a climate scientist whose work focuses on Greenland and the Arctic, was skeptical of such enormous rates of near-term sea level rise, though she defended Hansen's decision to publish in a nontraditional way.

In 2013, Hansen left his post at NASA to become a climate activist because, in his words, "as a government employee, you can't testify against the government." In a wide-ranging December 2013 study, conducted to support Our Children's Trust, a group advancing legal challenges to lax greenhouse gas emissions policies on behalf of minors, Hansen called for a "human tipping point"—essentially, a social revolution—as one of the most effective ways of combating climate change, though he still favors a bilateral carbon tax agreed upon by the United States and China as the best near-term climate policy. In the new study, Hansen writes, "there is no morally defensible excuse to delay phase-out of fossil fuel emissions as rapidly as possible."

Asked whether Hansen has plans to personally present the new research to world leaders, he said: "Yes, but I can't talk about that today." What's still uncertain is whether, like with so many previous dire warnings, world leaders will be willing to listen.

    Dane, what do you make of that UK Telegraph article about the Cambridge University professor Peter Wadham who was afraid that 3 scientists measuring Arctic sea levels or something like that (I have memory issues, sorry) had been murdered?  He claimed that a truck had tried to force him off the road, too.  He admitted in the article that at first he was afraid to say anything 'cause people might think he was nuts.

    • Hello Jenny: I just watched this video about two weeks ago. He's smiling, but he knows how dire the situation has become. He was headed for another look at the ice sheet right after this interview.

  2. Marc says:

    And furthermore, If, as Dane indicates in his opening paragraph, world governments began collaborating on this SRM bullcrap long ago, "knowing what was coming", then how are we to interpret this in light of the fact that it has become excruciatingly clear that this agenda has done nothing but exacerbate and accelerate the very problem they were allegedly trying to reverse? Do you mean to tell me their top climate scientists got it all wrong? Really? I think not. If such a f**kup were even possible, how could it have occurred that such a vast machinery of so-called expertise and technology have followed through, built upon a faulty scientific premise, without some elements somewhere in the picture protesting vigorously, especially considering the high stakes involved? Were those who questioned the program silenced? The unbelievable answer is yes. And we are all now painfully aware that this despicable practice continues unabated to this day.

      Therefore, I personally can come to only one conclusion: the present day scenario unfolding before our eyes was the goal all along. Impossible you say? Then someone explain to me why all major world governments, especially China, U.S., Russia and Britain, have been ferociously excavating, building and stocking deep underground bases and a vast underground network of interconnecting high speed rail lines for the last 40 years. Has this activity, including the vast treasure expended on the geoengineering machine, been nothing more than an invention to rape the pockets of the multitudes, to transfer the world's wealth into the pockets of the defense contractors who are working for the CABAL and, as a wonderful bonus, reduce the world's population to some imaginary ideal number?

      We all continually ask why, why, why. It all seems so far beyond rational thought that the mind just hits a brick wall and stops. That such a vast and coordinated effort to lay waste to what was arguably the most sublime, heartwrenchingly beautiful planet seems utterly and totally satanic. And I'm not even Christian. How are we all to come to terms, in our hearts and our souls, with a force of such gargantuan evil? Some people I talk to about geoengineering and the CABAL just scoff and harrumph and either dismiss completely the topic, while others admit they cannot accept such a truth and so therefore prefer to continue living their lives as if it doesn't exist. I reckon I always return, sooner or later, to what Dane says here over and over, which is that soon folks will not be able to deny any longer the grim reality that geoengineering has done nothing but accelerate our suffering and demise.

    • Dane Wigington says:

      Hello Marc, it is important to remember that the goal of climate engineering was not ultimately to mitigate the climate disintigration, but rather to hide it from public view and understanding for as long as possible while continueing with “buisness as usual”. About academia, how could so many “experts” participate with the construction of the most populated cities around the globe at sea level? Did they never consider sea levels are not static? And that in a warming world they must rise? There are endless issues in which the experts and scientists have participated that make no rational sense, but we must consider we are not dealing with reason or benevolance.

    • penny says:

      There are certainly people from academia who have been silenced, but there are also many who never experience the slightest hint of a desire to look beyond their own narrow, meaningless sliver of expertise to understand the consequences of what they are doing.  That is how academia works; that is what the 9 to 19 years of training in higher "education" are for: indoctrination.

      Not that most people need it by that point, having been numbed to the world around them by adolescence.  I feel similarly about this planet (sublime, heart-wrenching in its beauty).  I've experienced such intense joy when looking at the mountains, the stars, the ripples on a pond, that all I can think is, "I can't stand it…"  But nowadays when I go out walking, most people are staring at a 2×2 screen.  If they look up, it's to take a snapshot of the scenery.  Reducing the planet to pixels.  Do they give a shit about the beauty?  I suspect that they just want to get something to go viral amongst the Twits. 

      Our greatest challenge may actually be inspiring people to want to live in the real world.

    • Hi Mark: I agree with Dane. We are not dealing with reason or benevolence when the shit gets this deep. I learned long ago, that if something simply made no sense, there was either money or insanity involved. Often times both… Trying to hide the Earth from the Sun seems rather ironic, ya know? These are the best scientists money could buy…

      I wonder what they're going to eat? Frozen corpses?

  3. Randolph says:

    Today, I saw this article at phys.org entitled: "New paper by prominent scientists suggests ocean levels will rise much faster than predicted" wherein it references Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, an interactive open-access journal of the European Geosciences Union. Upon searching, I found that Geoengineering seems to be exemplified at this site with religious bravado.

  4. Excellent comments by all. Bravo! I know the situation looks hopeless to many persons who come to this site, but it's not beyond getting a pound of flesh in return for the destruction of our planet and the desecration of our liberties.

    There are sheriffs all over America (not the United States Corporation in DC) that know full well what THE PEOPLE can achieve.

    If Americans stood up instead of kneeling and groveling, they could "rightfully" revolt in each and every County of the Nation. It's called citizens arrest, and it's perfectly legal. And there are sheriffs that took and oath to assist you…

    True American's could set the tone for the overthrow of ALL fascist states throughout the World. Sieze this opportunity to revolt. It is not out of the question. Get these 'failure' programs out of your minds. You've been jazzed into thinking revolt is not available to you.

    • Marc says:

      I was surfing Facebook awhile ago and someone put up a compilation of dash-cam videos of cop beatings. Horrific! Made my stomach turn. Video after video of police brutality totally out of proportion to the circumstances. I couldn't watch very much of it. Wonder why I watched ANY of it, to be honest. But when you call for Americans to stand up instead of "kneeling and groveling", we run the very real risk of getting the shit beat out of us. Or tazed to death or…..So, I think back to when I myself marched right behind Daniel Ellsberg in Denver in a monstrous anti-Vietnam war demonstration in '72. I wonder almost on a daily basis why such protests against geoengineering are not forming in our country similar to the one in Italy a while back. It;s all about critical mass, I reckon.

    • Hi Mark: I hear what you're saying about the YouTube and facebook images of "cops" beating people up. For sure the brutality sucks, and a person can't help but get pissed.

      But: How many of these are Hollywood back lot productions? We really don't have any way of checking this out. How many of these people walked themselves into a confrontation by being smart asses? How many had serious criminal records, or had previous firearms violations? YouTube and facebook are great formats for screwing with people's minds – just like television, or any other Hollywood psy-op video bullshit…

      If people here can't take the time to understand why the American Revolution took place, or why the Bill of Rights is the foundation of ALL American freedoms, you may as well keep groveling.

      By the way: I hate facebook, It's putrid pablum for weak minded fools and drama queens.

  5. Keith Whittington says:

    This is, maybe, the one hundredth new study that pushes the timeline forward. Feedback loops are an exponential bitch. It is time to stop thinking about a new or an improved government. Governments got us here. When the Spanish sailed to present day California, there were 500 distinct cultures sharing resources and living free side by side in peace.

  6. JerryJoe says:

    Dane is doing an excelent job in getting the facts of this covert operation. Our gov will never admit to anything that may result in massive lawsuits.  Besides this covert/black operation can only change course if our chief executive puts a stop to it and right now with upcoming elections and other money ties this is not going to change.

    • Marc says:

      Obama is far out of the loop on the geoengineering chain of command. He is a stuffed shirt to be propped up in front of the camera to disseminate the wishes of those above him.

  7. Michel B says:

    World leaders should be punished with all their cohorts and their masters too.

    Whether they will be or not is another thing. They sanction war, ethnic cleansing, deliberate environmental and humanitarian crimes, so some punishment should be considered. Incarceration is the least they deserve.

    Appealing to 'leaders' is just going to feed the problem. They are a big part of the problem. Their roles have to be resolved along with every other part of this issue.

    I hate calling them 'leaders'. Where have they lead us? Down a path of destruction. They are lazy bone deceivers and traitors.

    Their replacement will only come about when enough of the population wakes up and takes action. The waking up is inevitable. It's just the type and direction of ensuing action that cannot be predicted, though it will be chaotic.

  8. Marc says:

    Are the subtleties associated with an understanding of geoengineering, global warming and planetary feedback loops just far enough beyond the intellectual grasp of a critical mass of the population that real enlightenment can never snowball into the numbers necessary to make a real difference? Add to this the relentless and quite repulsive blitzkrieg of mis- and disinformation fed to a floundering public through news syndicates who work for the psycho-sacks of shit at the apex of the Power Pyramid. What we end up with is a situation wherein no consensus is possible. There will never be consensus. Even when Miami is gone, and New York and Tampa and New Orleans and San Diego and Pensacola, the beleaguered "post apocalyptic" public won't give a rat's ass about any truths as to what the governments of the world did or did not do to accelerate the arrival of the  "water world". By then I'm afraid most of the aforementioned public will have long since been reduced to a food source for predators and worms. So, it is and has been, a race to herd our minds into the desired pasture so that we can never be allowed to understand the true extent to which the meatsocks at the top have spoiled literally everything in sight. For an enlightened, awakened public mind is a dangerous one which threatens the monkey grip the Cabal has upon our every sphere of existence.

    • Michel B says:

      Marc, it can be understood if you want to find out the gritty truth. Dane does that each and every day. The undeniable data is out there. Of course there is a shower of disinformation making a curtain in front of it from the liars.

      But there seems to be a gullibility and capacity for placidity in our general nature. Unless the sky is falling on our heads, people don't know there is a problem. Of course the irony is that the sky is falling on our heads, millions of tonnes of nano metal particles raining down on us each and every moment.

      Looking back at my high school education, I now realise how woeful it was, how inadequate and how it did not prepare me for many realities. But this was its point. We have all had a deliberate miseducation foisted upon us. We are learning now and many will learn later when things are obvious enough and many will learn too late and many will never learn regardless.

      Understanding this whole scenario boils down to realising the pitfalls of our evolutionary heritage. We have choices: subscribe to the animal nature with all of its instincts or pursue higher consciousness. For a doctor, there is an oath, a fine value, "First do no harm." I think it is part of the Hippocratic Oath. Imagine if that was applied to every field of endeavor? One can but dream….

    Great article.
    Also, it's nice that people comment on what is happening in their home towns.  Thank you.

  10. Ah yes. The glitch in the program: " What's still uncertain is whether, like with so many previous dire warnings, world leaders will be willing to listen."
    To hell with world leaders. I can assure you, "they" will not listen. They are delusional, mentally incompetent, morally bankrupt, and highly dangerous. "They" have nuclear weapons, biological weapons, chemical warfare agents, and millions of idiot soldiers to do their bidding. Here's an example of mental incompetence and blatant malice toward the people he once swore an oath to protect. >

    With bastards like this at the helm, the outcome is easy to predict.
    This is what is needed: >
    The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America
    "When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."
    "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
    That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."
    Mankind has sold the soul of the planet for a fist full of colored paper. Way to go.

      Well said.  I saw that MSM interview of Wesley Clark.  Expect Haliburton to operate the camps.  The private prison stocks will be traded on Wall Street.  Take a look at the beach at Malibu, California.  It is way eroded due to higher ocean tides.

      "To hell with world leaders" is the most salient and important point that can be made here.  Thank you, Paul, for that lucid and succinct statement of the solution! 

      Yesterday I saw, for the first time, photos of the many new "shopping malls" set to open in 2015, even as every major retail chain in the country is going broke (http://allnewspipeline.com/US_General_Confirms_FEMA_Camps_Via_Twitter.php   Not sure how reliable the website is, but the photos are what matter).  These malls are obviously not there to gratify people's consumption lust.  Not only Clark, but H. Clinton calls for camps – obligatory "fun camps" for adults (yes, just like Orwell's joycamps).  People need to take this seriously, difficult as it is to face.

    • quote:

      "Retired US General Wesley Clark suggested that radicalized youth in America and other Western nations should be segregated the way Nazi sympathizers were held in camps during World War II."

      Yep, he mentioned the colony Germany as well, besides France and the UK. The "elite" is getting nervous with so many freedom loving Nazis around. Who invented the Russian Gulag system? 10% of us will end up in a state like North Korea … 90% will be spayed like bugs. Bright future!

    • Keith Whittington says:

      Remember when Clark was floated as a presidential candidate? Lincoln jailed 15,000-30,000 dissidents during the civil war. Wilson 100,000 during WW I. FDR 120,000 Japanese descendants WW II. It appears Clark may be qualified after all.

    SLR is already taking it's toll on my home state of Florida. If you were to visit parts of Miami Beach when you have a combination of high tides with strong onshore winds, you would find seawater bubbling up from manhole covers and producing street flooding. And note that's without any rain. It's happened so much that residents of the Alton Rd area have found the need to park their cars in other areas or in elevated parking to keep their cars from being ruined.

    There was a story yesterday and unfortunately I didn't bookmark it where it mentioned that the Fort Lauderdale area is at a HIGH risk of SLR and in 2-3 decades could be underwater. Officials at the Broward International Airport are assessing SLR risk to the Airport. St Augustine Florida is also assessing SLR as certain low coastal areas are already seeing some changes to the coast.

    So it's definitely happening.
