I live in north-western Germany and we always had west- or east-wind. Mostly west-wind from the sea. It was never different. North- or south-winds were very rare, but now it's standard. I think it changed about ten years ago. Wind switched from west/east to north/south or north-east / south-west. North wind means its much too cold and south-wind means its much too warm. In spring for example temperatures sometimes falter between +10 °C and -10 °C, what means the trees start blossoming and then all blossoms freeze, insects die. In summer it can be as cold as in November or as hot like the Sahara.

Climate is changing for sure, but the ocean's rise?
In the past the ocean has varied by over 500'. This has caused major events in evolution and dispersal of land animals.

But...the ice melts only account for a few meters, not hundreds and hundreds.
The big changes are caused by the ocean basins changing size. The Atlantic ridge causing the Atlantic ocean to grow in volume. The subduction zone in the Pacific, the 'Rim of Fire' causing all those volcanoes, is reducing the volume of the Pacific.

The tectonic changes are unaffected by mankind's shenanigans and are really slow. But are the main drivers of past major ocean level changes.

All that being true, the rise of just a meter has extremely enormous consequences for industrialized coastal lands of advanced nations.
This is short term and upon us now.

the fun is just starting

many members have posted about the unusual weather conditions they've been seeing
wild weather in my neck of the woods, the cold variety
but the real fun is looking to be up on the greenland ice sheet
the melt has started, and that REALLY should not be happening yet
we'll see if it's a bump or something more dramatic

fill a glass up with water, then add a bunch of ice cubes. what happens to the water level?

Soon isn't the same scale as humans think of as "soon". This'll happen over the next hundred+ years or so or longer. Land ice sheets are at an overall net loss. Greenland is losing land ice faster than Antarctica is growing land ice.

I mean, you can look this stuff up but I'm sure you'll just cry about some liberal bias as pertaining to scientific evidence.

"Researchers can say that global ocean levels have risen about 19 centimeters in the last century. And the rate of rise has sped up. The 20th-century average is about 1.7 millimeters per year; since 1993 the average rate has nearly doubled — to about 3.2 millimeters per year.Oct 21, 2013"
