HE DID IT ! THE OCEANS HAVE STOPPED RISING ! ! !

From The Guardian (UK):

Scientists have been forced to withdraw a study on projected sea level rise due to global warming after finding mistakes that undermined the findings.

The study, published in 2009 in Nature Geoscience, one of the top journals in its field, confirmed the conclusions of the 2007 report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It used data over the last 22,000 years to predict that sea level would rise by between 7cm and 82cm by the end of the century.

In a statement the authors of the paper said: "Since publication of our paper we have become aware of two mistakes which impact the detailed estimation of future sea level rise. This means that we can no longer draw firm conclusions regarding 21st century sea level rise from this study without further work.
 
One mistake was a miscalculation; the other was not to allow fully for temperature change over the past 2,000 years. Because of these issues we have retracted the paper and will now invest in the further work needed to correct these mistakes."
 
IT WORKED !  IT WORKED !  HE DID IT !  THE OCEANS HAVE STOPPED RISING ! !   ALL HAIL TO THE OBAMESSIAH ! ! ! !   
 


We can all sleep so much better now....

Does anyone keep track of the number of platforms, vessels, trash dumped from barges, etc. - all things that displace ocean water and cause the sea level to rise? Obviously things going in, things coming out and things degrading have an effect. How in the world do these 'scientists' qualify their measurements without accounting for all of the variables?
