13 - Misleading media reports on sea level rise - a case study

Happy New Year to all my subscribers! This addresses a response to my video "Climate Change -- Hurricanes, atolls and corals," which, on investigation, revealed a major error by a news agency and a TV network. The moral of the story is that sticking the label "Global Warming" onto anything that moves is not going to help public understanding of climate science. SOURCES: "Rising Water threatens Panama islands" -- Al Jazeera http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4m_TxYTucc "Rising sea drives Panama islanders to mainland" by Sean Mattson, Reuters July 12, 2010 http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE66B0PL20100712 Map of Caribbean tectonics from: "Wide Plate Margin Deformation, Southern Central America and Northwestern South America" R.
