Wouldn't evaporation fit ? Not only to counter the rise but to produce much needed fresh water . Climate science claims a few large ice ages in the past . Heck even the arctic was much warmer so there is a cycle but its not industry that is the main driver . The Sun and our position in the cosmos seems to my mind to be the elephant in the room . Maybe industry will be the savior by producing more house boats and jobs to boot
A serious question for you first. Where is the seas and oceans overflow pipe? Answer, there aint one.

It's our soil and stone that's the problem. I live 5 minutes from the sea, it's a rugged coast that's always changing, the amount of cliff falls can be crazy after a storm... The sea seldom ever touches most of the cliffs, it's the water off the land that does most damage. But when conditions are just right the cliffs are just ate away.
I love a bit of geology, where I am the hard sandstone/mudstone is only around 5-15 foot above sea level. I know further south this stone isn't even exposed. As you probably know coastal erosion is a huge problem in east Anglia.
With sea levels rising the rate of erosion will be worse, a lot worse. Our coast is weak compared to say Cornwall or a lot of the west coast.
Scientists predict that as sea levels rise, thousands of islands will be afflicted by frequent flooding, lack of freshwater and damage to infrastructure.
these are the same people that told us in the 60s and 70s we would all be frozen
Because of the rapid diffusion of CO2 molecules within the atmosphere, both hemispheres will be subject to warming due to the atmospheric (greenhouse) effect as the CO2 content of the atmosphere builds up from the combustion of fossil fuels. Because of the differential effects of the two major sources of atmospheric pollution, the CO2 greenhouse effect warming trend should first become evident in the Southern Hemisphere. The socioeconomic and political consequences of climate change are profound. We need an early warning system such as would be provided by a more intensive international world weather watch, particularly at high northern and southern latitudes.
