Too bad the 'fact checkers' never touch this stuff. It is stated that they compensated for land movement, but they didn't.
There are very few 'long term' tide gauges in nz, but they all show the same sinking trend. NZ is going down like a rock. But it is a straight line, and if you take that out, then there is nothing.
ps. no media would check this, because they would be crucified by the only people who pay for stuff. I can do it because of only 6 readers, and any personal attack would greatly increase readership.
