A ten foot rise in sea levels will be catastrophic.It would change the world's coastlines where many peoples live.

Right. The ocean is primarily warmed by captured heat from solar radiation, just as the air is. Do you think there is enough volcanic activity to raise global temperatures?
The sea does not warm by itself. Neither does the air.
No. They are not saying that is what is happening.
These scientists are saying magma below the surface is doing the same thing, resulting in volcanoes.
But even if anthropogenic, or human-caused, climate change impacts volcanic eruptions, people wouldn't see the effect in this lifetime, because the volcanic activity doesn't occur immediately after the climate change, Jegen said.
"We predict there's a time lag of about 2,500 years," Jegen said. "So even if we change the climate, you wouldn't really expect anything to happen in the next few thousand years."
Glaciers have not been rapidly melting for 2,500 years.

Wrong. Not sure why you think that. Use the sea level maps.
