    While researching climate change, we heard something confusing: the sea level in New York City is rising about one and a half times faster than the global average. We couldn’t figure out what that meant. Isn’t the sea level...flat? So we called up an expert and went down the rabbit hole. And, we did our best to visualize her truly bizarre answers with animations, dioramas, and a lot of melting ice.

    I can't see your link, but no, its not flat, and no, melting sea ice doesn't raise sea levels, it lowers them

    You can demonstrate this very easily to students with a glass of water with melting ice in
