Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Interesting idea...so how high is it suppose to raise by 2020?

I don't know, but I found that if the sea level goes down by 28 meters then we French can start walking into England  ;)))

Just to recall, during the Last Glaciation Maximum (about 20'000 BP), the sea level was 120 meters below what it is today. The North Sea was a nice plain where ours ancestors did hunt animals.
The Mediterranean Sea also ran dry during the Messisian Salinity Crisis (about 8 mio years ago). Because of an uplift, no water came through the strait of Gibraltar, and the evaporation in the sea was not balanced with water from rivers. So you can now admire nice salt deposits from this period.
