BBC NEWS | Sea level rise ‘is accelerating’

It has been a while since the BBC gave us something bloggable. This gem is definitely worth blogging and chuckling about. Sea level is rising…OK. The last 50 years moving at an accelerated rate…OK. But the fact that we have evidence of the Little Ice Age ending just before this study begins makes it all a bit amusing. Of course some of the ice captured in the arctic regions during this time would be released with the following warming in the mid to late 1800s.

I want to see more studies comparing the altithermal (you know, around 8000 BP) to the present sea levels.
