IPCC Claim of Rising Sea Levels Retracted - Will The Oregonian Report It?

Nature Geoscience, a scientific journal, issued a retraction on February 21st about a claim made in the famous joke that was the 2007 IPCC report that sea levels would rise by 18cm-59cm by 2100.  As reported by the Guardian (notice once again it's a British newspaper, not a US paper).

Scientists have been forced to withdraw a study on projected sea level rise due to global warming after finding mistakes that undermined the findings.

The study, published in 2009 in Nature Geoscience, one of the top journals in its field, confirmed the conclusions of the 2007 report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It used data over the last 22,000 years to predict that sea level would rise by between 7cm and 82cm by the end of the century.

Chief "Climategate" Scientist Admits No Warming Since 1995 - Where Is The Oregonian?

Back in November, servers at the Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University in England, ground central for scientists intent on proving that catastrophic global warming is happening and is man-caused (as compared to going wherever the science leads), were hacked, and thousands of emails were made public.  A number of things were revealed by this data, primary among them that

  • The data does NOT show increased warming
  • The scientists did everything they could - including manipulating the data (like Penn State's Michael Mann's "hiding the decline") - to hide this fact

The chief "scientist" at CRU was Phil Jones.  Once this information was made public, he was forced to step down from his position at East Anglia pending an inquiry into the emails and the fraud it revealed.  Since that time, other major problems with the famed IPCC report - of which Jones was a major contributor - that claims that the world is warming and it's all man's fault have been exposed.  For example:
