Re: “N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences director puts kibosh on documentary about sea-level rise

The article is wrong (and sealevelinfo is right). The law that was actually adopted in NC doesn't limit government to using ONLY historical data on sea level change. The actual law (not the draft that Stephen Colbert and others shamed the legislature into changing) says the NC Science Panel can use predictive models that show the acceleration of sea-level rise, but "[w]hen summarizing research dealing with sea level, the Commission and the Science Panel shall define the assumptions and limitations of predictive modeling used to predict future sea-level scenarios." In other words, scientists making predictions about seal level change in NC must include information in their reports that could be used by climate change deniers to attack findings that predict accelerating change.
