Discussion:
Moon helping climate change?

So the moon has a wobble in its orbit, which occurs every 18.6 years,
and now because of rising sea levels because of climate change places are
going to get flooded in a big way, maybe.

Look, let us get real. The moons pull is the same thus the tide level rise
will be the same distance, it just that it starts from a higher level.

Also no metion what happened last time. Of course the sea level has risen
about 20mm in the last decade.

Bullshit.

We have Tidal Gauges in every harbour around New Zealand.
They seem unaware of these gigantic changes
Lyttelton seems to be the only place anything is supposedly happening :)

The Sounds are a great place for initiating sprogs.
You can get rather lengthy tidal runs...
But there were not and are not any REAL increases in sea level.

Wellington Harbour actual measurements:

https://www.sealevel.nz/Wellington.html

Eyeball calculation:
in 1920, gauge is at 628 mm ± 40 mm
in 2020, gauge is at 810 mm ± 25 mm
Therefore, over 100 years, sea rise is just 1.82 mm / year.

But get a load of the summary that the page gives at the bottom:

"The mean annual rate of Relative Sea Level (RSL) change for
Wellington between 1891 and 2020 is approximately 2.3 mm per year with
a Standard Error of +/-0.1 mm per year.

"Corrected for subsidence and Vertical Land Movement (VLM) of -3.22+/-
0.72 mm per year (GPS Solution: JPL14), the mean annual rate of
Absolute Sea Level (ASL) change for Wellington between 1891 and 2020
is approximately -0.9 mm per year (2.30-3.22) with a Standard Error of
+/-0.7 mm per year."

So the official figures show that THE SEA LEVEL IS FALLING at the rate
of 0.9 mm per year.

We should be VERY afraid mate. What's really going to happen is here:

Too late gentlemen, haven't you heard the howling from the government benches
recently?
