BBC Forced To Withdraw Fake Sea Level Claims

Miami ocean-facing property prices seem to be holding up quite well despite the tall tales of climate doom-mongers like the BBC.

Readers may recall an item on the BBC World at One back in March about rising sea levels in Florida, when their correspondent claimed that:

1) Rising seas and flooding are turning Miami Beach into a modern day Atlantis, the city being submerged by water.

2) Sea levels at Miami are rising at ten times the global rate.

I covered the story here.

I complained to the BBC at the time, and, after being fobbed off the first time, escalated the complaint to the Executive Complaints Unit, who have now published the above judgment.

Astonishingly, they regard the claims about “Atlantis” to be “soundly based”, even though they now accept that sea levels around Miami are only rising at about 8 inches a century.

Of course, they had no choice but to withdraw the ludicrous claim about “ten times the global rate”!

But why…

    Open Letter to Honorable Prime Minister of Fiji and President of COP23 Frank Bainimarama
    by Nils-Axel Mörner

    Our message (or rather plea) to You as President COP23 is

    — Listen to your own field evidence in the Fiji islands they indicate no rise in sea level
    — Be faithful to the message from the Fiji corals they indicate full sea level stability since 1950

    Astonishingly, they regard the claims about “Atlantis” to be “soundly based”

    But…’Atlantis (Ancient Greek: Ἀτλαντὶς νῆσος, “island of Atlas”) is a fictional island’ – Wikipedia

    Paul ==> Well done, sir. It is important that these kinds of fallacious news reports be challenged. I wrote on the Miami Beach issue over at WUWT in an essay entitled “Miami’s Vice” [ ].

    Miami was spared a major disaster this past summer when the path of Hurricane Irma shifted west just enough to prevent the winds from blowing directly into Biscayne Bay — which would have caused storm surge flooding much of Miami Beach and Miami city.

    Miami Beach should be declared a national disaster area as it stands today — no need to wait for the storm that knocks the whole city out for months.

    I do wonder if the current close alignment of Sun, Earth, Saturn and Jupiter are not linked to long term cyclic changes in sea level.

    The sub-solar and sub-lunar points from 2 days ago.

    That cannot just be co-incidence surely?
