#1 Recently saw a scary story saying sea level rise is accelerating at a record pace (at least on the US East Coast) - and the rate is 4 mm/year. That's about 1/6" per year or 1 1/2" per decade, or 16" per century or 13 feet per 1000 years! Sounds terrible, right? But wait! That works out to about 200' over the last 15,000 years - which is less than the estimated 300' of rise since the last ice age minimum, about 15,000 years ago. So is the alleged current rate of sea level rise just a reversion to the long-term norm, to be continued until the ice is gone?
