Sea levels rise slows — ‘coincides with a plateau in Earth’s mean surface temperature’ – ‘Over the last decade a [sea level rise] slowdown of this rate, of about 30%, has been recorded’

Climatologist Dr. Judith Curry:

Can someone then tell me how you can infer that sea level rise is accelerating due to AGW, when compared with sea level rise for the first half of the 20th century?

It is clear that natural variability has dominated sea level rise during the 20th century, with changes in ocean heat content and changes in precipitation patterns.

Once again, the emerging best explanations for the ‘pause’ in global surface temperatures and the slow down in sea level rise bring into question the explanations for the rise in both in the last quarter of the 20th century.  And makes the 21st century of sea level rise projections seem like unjustified arm waving.
