New satellite data shows sea levels may rise faster than previously anticipated. So is global warming real or fake?

Says the one who's profile statement is "God, Guns and Gold". Science is a bitch sometimes, ain`t it?

continued.... Therefore are you claiming a specialty of the science? Rather as you claim:


In a sense a jack of all geoscience, but master of no specialty such as a geologist,or a vulcanologist, or oceanographer. This is liken to a General Practitioner in the medical field but not an expert to tell what a specific area such as Internal medicine or OB/GYN.

Basically that would be like telling an expert like an oceanographer how to interpret the data from a tsunami buoy. BTW of which they were incorrect again today thank heavens. I gave you the link from professors of PH D's from Columbia University. Your own peers in Earth Science and backed up and confirmed by oceanographers from NOAA and the Pacific Tsunami Center. I would take their knowledge over yours. Basically quit calling people dumb ass. It shows lack of skills in presentation of the legitimacy of your argument and your expertise.

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I was with some local Oceanographers since 9:30 PM last night. While we were waiting for the Tsunami to reach shore. I mentioned your assertion on polar ice caps melting and dictating the currents. They influence the temperature of the currents. However the mention of driving the direction is not correct by your assertion earlier. I suggest you consult Marine Scientists first. You were even given a link explain such how currents are formed. Even though I am a Vet by skill and not a true expert as a geophysicists I am familiar from my days as a pro surfer on oceanography. The fact some of my fellow companions do work for the Pacific Tsunami Warning center and Civil defense gives me adequate information to counter your assertion.

Second you claimed the following:
"I`m a geologist, I study these things for a living, anyone want to debate that?"
