You wrote, "Jason-2 measured higher rates for 2012 than 2010," which is completely false.
A "higher rate" would mean an acceleration, which hasn't happened in 2012, mainly because 2012 hasn't ended, my little plank.

Hey, dirtie, you play dirty. You are WRONG.

Where did I say 2012 ended? Tell Steve not to publish 2012 data, dirtie.

Why are you here? You're OCD-driven. Jason-2 did measure higher rates for 2012 than 2010.

Hey, dirty,(height/time) is not acceleration. Your ignorance is obvious.. but actually, acceleration is very steep in 2012.

Single year values don't mean anything, but since it was brought up, from CU's data:
http://sealevel.colorado.edu/files/2012_rel3/...
you get:

2012 ... 0.62 mm/yr
2010 ...-2.88 mm/yr
And
2011 ... 2.99 mm /yr

Hmm, maybe the little plank is right after all, as 2010 resulted in a negative ("pothole") SL rise.
