Sea Level Rising Faster

Peter Sinclair, who puts together the "Climate Denial Crock of the Week" YouTube series, tackles sea level rise in his latest installment. In this segment, NASA oceanographer Josh Willis confirms without a doubt that the ocean is creeping upward at a faster rate than at any time during the previous few thousand years. "The best estimate of global sea level rise even in the last 100 years, suggests that it's going faster and faster," he says. "So we've gone 1 millimeter per year, 100 years ago, to 2 millimeters per year about 50 years ago to 3 millimeters per year today."
