10. Manmade CO2 is leaving no footprint for causing polar ice shrinkage or accelerated sea level rise.
Polar ice is still advancing and retreating although CO2 levels continue a steep rise. This does not confirm a strong, direct connection between rising CO2 levels and global warming. Neither do the records of sea level show any steeping of the gradual sea level rise that has been observed over the last century. (See figure below)
Empirical evidence is going counter to the major climate model predictions of catastrophic sea level rise.
