However, the latest data sets show quite large increase (statistically) over the last 30 to 40- years and much more particularly over the last decade. For example, the annual rise now is nearly double a decade ago.

I believe in man made climate change. The correlation between heightened co2 levels and the industrial age is compelling to me personally. I don't know how much it has affected it, it's just my opinion that it has.
Most flooding happens during the fall
In Florida, this is when the combined gravitational pull of the moon and the sun pulls water inland and when the Gulf Stream slows, which allows the water to rise even more. This causes unusually high tides called king tides. In places like Southeast Florida, king tides are typically nearly a foot higher than normal tides.1 Add that to the 8 inches of sea level rise since 1950, and you end up with flooding even on sunny days.

The sun is getting warmer as it get's older and some estimates state that natural warming caused by an increase in solar radiation may turn earth into a second Venus were life as we know it will no longer be able to survive in anywhere between 500 million to 2 billion years meaning that the earth is not only in what we call a Goldilocks zone around our star but also in a Goldilocks period in time after which time life here will be unsustainable through natural process.
But what if current rates double over the next decade? And then those rates double over the following decade? It soon starts to stack up.
