But a far cry from the 125 meters climate change scientists are "predicting".

That's what happens when you look for keywords instead of reading and understanding what is actually said.
Sure sounds like they removed data, and only then saw it match up with the expected results in the simulations.
Trends are not data, they are the result of data analysis. Because of the wide variation in quality and type of data from various satellites previous techniques of analysis which did not take that variation into account showed trends that didn't make sense.
Wouldn't 30 years out of billions, just be a trend?

Is that not what they're insinuating when they say the last time CO2 levels were this high sea levels were 125 meters higher than they are right now.
Personally I don't think that's even possible.

The corrected data cannot be used for studies of globally averaged cloud change, however, because the methods employed remove any real cloud variability occurring on global scales together with spurious variability

Have you read the source data or just the resulting synopsis? Taking this corrected data and attempting to use it in a long-term climate assessment was openly not recommended by the originator of the data.
This is because observational systems originally designed for monitoring weather have lacked sufficient stability to detect cloud changes reliably over decades unless they have been corrected to remove artefacts4, 5
Climate change is inherently a long-term predictive process. In addition, the data set used was for a very short time as well.
stand with my claim of "bad science" here.

Norther America used to be covered by a glacier. Think about how much climate change that required, TPP
