Leading German Meteorologist: Michael Mann’s Sea Level Story “A Quack”
By P Gosselin, No Trick’s Zone on 23. Juni 2011
What follows in English is a summary version of a piece appearing here at the European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) based in Germany, written by retired meteorologist Klaus-Eckart Puls.
PIK report: “Sea level rising fastest in 2000 years” turns out to be a quack! Data shows no change!…read it all
…Finally, when one takes into account that the PIK and Mann author-team are known worldwide as alarmists, e.g. Michael Mann (hockey stick inventor), Stefan Rahmstorf (PIK) et al., then considerable doubt on the credibility of this doomsday paper is in complete order.
The critique of the sea level alarmism can be found here.

Like the above review of Mann and and others, other science auditors have joined the fray, and almost unanimously considered this sea-level paper, ‘junk’. Comments represent blog peer review, and discussions are worth the read.

Anthony has pointed out the further inanities of that well-known vanity press, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. This time it is Michael Mann (of Hockeystick fame) and company claiming an increase in the rate of sea level rise (complete paper here, by Kemp et al., hereinafter Kemp 2011). A number of commenters have pointed out significant shortcomings in the paper. AMac has noted at ClimateAudit that Mann’s oft-noted mistake of the upside-down Tiljander series lives on in Kemp 2011, thus presumably saving the CO2 required to generate new and unique errors. Steve McIntyre has pointed out that, as is all too common with the mainstream AGW folks and particularly true of anything touched by Michael Mann, the information provided is far, far, far from enough to reproduce their results. Judith Curry is also hosting a discussion of the issues….
