Abstract
In each tide gauge where enough information was available to infer a trend decades ago, the addition of new data has not resulted in a generally increased relative rate of rise, but, rather, in small fluctuations both in positive and negative. As the worldwide surveys of the relative sea level rises return numbers that are positive and negative, small on average and about constant, this means the alarming claims of up to 2 metres sea level rise to be added everywhere in the flood maps because of the increasing anthropogenic carbon dioxide emission lacks of a evidence.
