I came across this blog at http://hot-topic.co.nz/a-rising-tide-sinks-cities which I wished to comment on in order to correct some of the assumptions, unsupported statements and mistaken beliefs.
Gareth may possibly mean well but Gareth- you simply have to be a little more logical for any intelligent person to take you seriously.
The reason why I am duplicating your blog here is because I cant seem to be able to comment on yours. Probably because you expect commenters to subscribe, which would also explain the one-sided opinions of your commenters.
I am certainly not going to subscribe to your blog or get any closer than an arms length.
Not a prob though Gareth, I’m going to comment here as much as I please and I welcome anyone else who wants to to do the same. You can too if you do desire. You see I’m not afraid to defend my views with logic and academic papers etc. I allow any comments so long as they do not contain obscenities or anythig too rude.
I must admit though that Auckland would be in trouble if the sea level rose as you describe.
Here is a question Gareth, where is all this water needed to raise the sea level going to come from and when is the rise expected?
Perhaps you or some of your followers can fill out this little table ?
I will even fill out some of the first column for you.
Water Source Contribution to sea level rise. Rate of sea level rise
Arctica. 0 0. (floating ice does not affect sea levels on melting or freezing)
Greenland Ice Cap 7 mtrs. 3.5mm yr max (IPCC estimates a minimum of 2000 yrs for the melt )http://www.ipcc.ch/publications_and_data/ar4/wg1/en/spmsspm-projections-of.html#table-spm-3
Now after doing this research, try reviewing your article.
A rising tide sinks cities…

That’s the title of my first post at New Zealand’s new The Daily Blog. It’s an attempt to underline the long term imperative provided by sea level rise, to help a general audience to appreciate that every tonne of CO2 counts. The Daily Blog launched last week. Editor Martyn “Bomber” Bradbury has pulled together over 30 of NZ’s “leading left-wing commentators and progressive opinion shapers (You mean communists dont you Gareth?) to provide the other side of the story on today’s news, media and political agendas”. I’ll be blogging there every two weeks, covering climate science and policy with an eye to the run-in to the next election in 2014. Wish me luck…
