Professor Mann is right. Read what he said.

Our planet is gifted with scientists like Mann and the UN who let us understand the threats and risks of the man-made climate change.

Are you part of the solution to this global problem?

One thing I note about sea level (currently 3.2 mm a year linear estimate) is that strong ENSO cycles have an effect by moving more or less water to the land (very temporary, of course).

Note the 1998 peak (strong El-Nino) and the 2011 dip (strong La-Nina). I suspect that if the ENSO cycle were compensated for (removed from the signal) the result would show a slight acceleration if plotted with an exponential fit.
