Submission + - Sea level lies (universeii.com)

Lexx Greatrex writes: Fresh lies have been added to the global warming argument, but this time not by self-interested politicians but by reputable scientists. An obscure side note was added to the University of Colorado (CU) Sea Level Research Group web site recently explaining that 0.3 mm/year is added to the sea-level data due to the land masses of the Earth rising through an effect known as glacial isostatic adjustment or GIA. This counterintuitive adjustment is equivalent to a traffic cop adding 10 mph to your speeding ticket because you were driving into a head-wind.
