According to the IPCC, sea level rise is accelerating:

In reality, the fastest rate of rise was between 1920 and 1950. Sea level rise slowed down in the 1960s and 70s as the world cooled down, before picking up again:


Quoting an increase between 2006 and 2018 is simple cherry picking. Sea level rise always picks up during El Ninos. If we take the change between 2005 and 2020, it is not 3.7mm but 3.5mm/yr, statistically no different to the 1993-2020 rate, but this includes a glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) of 0.3mm – this accounts for the fact that ocean basins have been getting slightly larger since the end of the ice age. This means that the actual SEA LEVEL rise is only 3.2mm a year:

We can see from tidal gauges that the recent rate of rise is similar to the late 19thC and early 20thC. The slowdown after 1960 is also marked:

Meanwhile we are expected to believe that sea level rise is about to take off into the stratosphere!
