All IPCC definitions taken from Climate Change 2007: The Physical Science Basis. Around 1990 it became obvious the local tide-gauge did not agree - there was no evidence of 'sinking.' So scientists at Flinders University, Adelaide, set up new, modern, tide-gauges in 12 Pacific islands.
Aea level rise corroborates other evidence of global warming The blue line in the graph below clearly shows sea level as rising, while the upward curve suggests sea level is rising faster as time goes on.
The upward curve agrees with global temperature trends and with the accelerating melting of ice in Greenland and other places.
Current sea level rise is after all not exaggerated, in fact the opposite case is more plausible.
Observational data and changing conditions in such places as Greenland suggest if there's a real problem here it's underestimation of future sea level rise.
