You want "settled science?" Here's your settled science:
Climate scientists withdraw journal claims of rising sea levels
Study claimed in 2009 that sea levels would rise by up to 82cm by the end of century – but the report's author now says true estimate is still unknown
But not to worry, folks, it's all normal operating procedure:
Announcing the formal retraction of the paper from the journal, Siddall said: "It's one of those things that happens. People make mistakes and mistakes happen in science." He said there were two separate technical mistakes in the paper, which were pointed out by other scientists after it was published. A formal retraction was required, rather than a correction, because the errors undermined the study's conclusion.
In spite of all these "errors" that just "happen," the coup de grace of this lunacy for me is this:
Siddall said that he did not know whether the retracted paper's estimate of sea level rise was an overestimate or an underestimate.
Oh, that's rich. These clowns don't even have a clue which side of "wrong" they are on! And this is the "science" the left wing politicians demand we accept as "settled" as they take control of the economy in its name.
