The two major causes of global sea level rise are thermal expansion caused by warming of the ocean (since water expands as it warms) and increased melting of land-based ice, such as glaciers and ice sheets. The oceans are absorbing more than 90 percent of the increased atmospheric heat associated with emissions from human activity.
That is a NOAA clickbait article, you have to have a full understanding of GMSL, RSL and much more to interpret it correctly.
It is mighty arrogant of you to claim you got it right, and NOAA plus pretty much all other scientific groups have it wrong.
Is the detection of accelerated sea level rise imminent?
Global mean sea level rise estimated from satellite altimetry provides a strong constraint on climate variability and change and is expected to accelerate as the rates of both ocean warming and cryospheric mass loss increase over time. In stark contrast to this expectation however, current altimeter products show the rate of sea level rise to have decreased from the first to second decades of the altimeter era.
I did no such thing, you are unable to comprehend what I am posting if you think that I have posted anything that says sea level rise is not occurring. Sorry can't help you out there, go back and re read the posts and point me to anywhere that I have posted anything that says sea level is not rising.
You have contradicted yourself by claiming sea level is rising to citing 1 abstract thatvsays otherwise.

Sea levels have been rising for thousands of years, ever since the last glacial maximum—way before any anthropogenic contributions to CO₂ began to accumulate.
first off where did I self describe myself as a right conservative? This is my first sign that you have no idea what you're talking about, and you are willing to make up # to get your bill advised opinion agreed with on these boards. Second I can tell you obviously have not looked at any of the data or sourced any of the names on these petitions that claim global warming is caused by man. I do agree that man has caused a slight rise in CO2 levels in the atmosphere, but I do not agree that these CO2 levels are causing any kind of global warming. The amount of CO2 in the atmosphere is .03% that is 3/100s of 1%. Water vapor Fluctuates to between one and 4%.

Science is not a liberal leftish conspiracy.
I see many of you self described 'right conservatives' do not like the valid science so you all make up an 'alternative' view point that strokes your confirmation bias.
Claim 1: Anthropogenic CO2 can't be changing climate, because CO2 is only a trace gas in the atmosphere and the amount produced by humans is dwarfed by the amount from volcanoes and other natural sources. Water vapor is by far the most important greenhouse gas, so changes in CO2 are irrelevant.
