KQED Honored for Report on Rising Sea Levels in San Francisco Bay

HERE is the report on rising sea levels in San Francisco Bay:

A team of producers and editors at KQED was honored this weekend with a prestigious Kavli Science Journalism Award. Only a few projects are selected each year by the Washington-based American Association for the Advancement of Science.

The KQED team, a collaboration of the QUEST and Climate Watch science reporting units, was recognized in the Television Spot News/Feature Reporting category for its segment on rising sea levels in the San Francisco Bay Area.

This report is based on an IPCC Report of 20 inches or 55 inches sea levels rise by 2100. We know from details analysis of the UN IPCC AR-4 report it is seriously flawed, by scientist and investigative reporters like Donna Laframboise.  and the Climategate I and II e-mails.

Here are the facts on the rising sea levels in San Francisco Bay.

Here are the facts on current sea level rise around the globe. (Steve Goddard – Real Science)

It appears to me the folks at KQED should have received an award for science fiction. Sea Level are not rising, they stopped rising and started declining in 2009.

    In North Carolina they also have coastal commissions and a much bigger concerns since they are on a coastal plain and are not very high above sea level for many miles inland from the shore. An environmenta activist, John Droz wrote a critique of the 1 meter sea level rise and has been challenting the Coastal Resource Commission’s Science Panel. http://www.carolinajournal.com/exclusives/display_exclusive.html?id=8781
    I suspect John Droz won’t be up for any awards any time soon.

    Interesting article, thanks for the link. Looks like science won the day, now if we could just get some of that science wisdom in California.
