The science of Global Warming keeps getting more unsettled 

The UK Guardian reports on yet another mistake in Global Warming science. A 2009 paper that had confirmed the IPCC's predictions about sea-levels rising has officially been retracted.

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.

Due to miscalculations and a failure to account for temperature changes over the last 2,000 years, the estimate is useless, its authors have now admitted. This comes just after two major claims by the IPCC's seminal Global Warming report have been debunked, regarding the retreat of Himalayan glaciers and the destruction of African crops.
