APOCALYPSE NOT NOW? Science now says global warming ‘has caused the ocean to sink’

Science says a melting glacier is making the oceans level lower due to global warming.

Via Newsweek:

There really aren’t many responses to this one.

We remember science told us something different:

“So much extra water is being added into the world’s oceans from melting glaciers that the ocean floor is sinking underneath its increasing weight. This ocean floor deformation also means we have miscalculated just how much ocean levels are rising and the problem could be far worse than previously believed.

Over the past 20 years, ocean basins have sunk an average of 0.004 inches per year. This means that the ocean is 0.08 inches deeper than it was two decades ago. While this small fragment of an inch may not seem much, oceans cover 70 percent of our planet, making the problem bigger than it seems at an initial glance.”

They always seem to have an answer to why the models are wrong.

So, perhaps this will be the next excuse.
