Oh crap, the Antarctic ice cap grew this year! I'll have to depend on the Greenland ice sheet melting enough to float my sailing ship in downtown Miami.
I heard that the level of the ocean even went down 1/4 of an inch few years ago but then scientists found out Austrailia was hogging all the water in Lake Eyre. Since then the most if not all of the lake has evaporated and the ocean is back to creeping up. At least it was last time I heard.
