    Part of that rise in sea level comes from the expansion of water because the ocean itself is warming.
    that's exactly the thought that ran through my mind just now scanning fishgrease's atlantic sea level rise diary.

    the news here just keeps on a-coming. and it's grim. it's not simply the rates of change, which by themselves, would be alarming even if they stayed put.

    but they're not. the rates of change are accelerating.
