The words highlighted on this screenshot from this webpage measuring sea levels in Wellington Harbour since 1891 say it all.

But– Absolute sea level has actually fallen because of vertical land movement in that time by an average –1.6 mm a year!

Ignore what Greenies and their ilk say — there is no reason for KCDC to cause panic and absolutely no need for it to consider any managed retreat!

From now on just refer Climate Alarmists to this.
