The Sea Is Rising, but Not Because of Climate Change

There is nothing we can do about it, except to build dikes and sea walls a little bit higher.

Of all known and imagined consequences of climate change, many people fear sea-level rise most. But efforts to determine what causes seas to rise are marred by poor data and disagreements about methodology... 
 I therefore conclude—contrary to the general wisdom—that the temperature of sea water has no direct effect on sea-level rise. [ Oh yeah?] That means neither does the atmospheric content of carbon dioxide.
This conclusion is worth highlighting: It shows that sea-level rise does not depend on the use of fossil fuels. The evidence should allay fear that the release of additional CO2 will increase sea- level rise...There is nothing we can do about rising sea levels in the meantime. We’d better build dikes and sea walls a little bit higher.

"Don’t use glaciers as thermometers... In my view…when the next ice age starts,  more of the  sea water  will  freeze and become ice  and sea level  will fall back  down  to what it was  during the last ice age... 
There is in fact no real correlation. There were warm periods and there’ve been  cold periods; these correlate more with the way the solar system moves through the galaxy. 
Which has nothing to do with carbon dioxide is a completely different issue but has a lot to do with what exists in galactic arms, namely increased intensity of cosmic rays. Apparently that factor is an important factor in changing the climate."

Dr. Fred Singer on ‘Global Warming Surprises’     -- WATTS UP WITH THAT 2017

Temp data in dispute can reverse conclusions about human influence on climate.
Guest essay by Dr. Fred Singer
Exploring some of the intricacies of GW [Global Warming] science can lead to surprising results that have major consequences. In a recent invited talk at the Heartland Institute’s ICCC-12 [Twelfth International Conference on Climate Change], I investigated three important topics:
1. Inconsistencies in the surface temperature record.
2. Their explanation as artifacts arising from the misuse of data.
3. Thereby explaining the failure of IPCC to find credible evidence for anthropogenic global warming (AGW).
In the iconic picture of the global surface temperature of the 20th century one can discern two warming intervals — in the initial decades (1910-42) and in the final decades, 1977 to 2000.
Although these two trends look similar, they are really  quite different:  the initial warming is genuine, but the later warming is not. What a surprise!  I wouldn’t exactly call it ‘fake,’  but it just does not exist;
