Non-partisan, independent presentation of climate data. No political ideology, agenda, or financial incentive. Just the data and the trends from published peer-reviewed research, no matter what it shows. We don't cherry pick. Site owner is a Ph.D. geologist who attempts to present the data in as simple a format as possible, so everyone can understand. Choose a subject from the list, or just scroll down. Data is presented in at-a-glance format with minimal analysis. Climate change is much more than just temperatures.

We don't post often, as there is no need to repost the same data over and over. But we do post data from scientists who have boots on the ground and are doing the dirty fieldwork to collect data.

Sea Level Rise

A record of sea level rise dating from 1880 averaged from 23 geologically stable tide gauge sites:


Sea level rise is attributable to melting ice and/or thermal expansion. Coming out of the last ice age, when sea levels were about 300' lower than today, seas rose quickly in response to melting continental glaciers. This ceased about 4,000 years ago when sea level stabilized.
