This fine chart has always followed the world temps. Temps go up and water expands. La la.
It has showed our little warm spell, and now is plunging. This month, the sea level has gone down, so I expect the world temps to be also down. We'll see in a few days. The UK has had a few hot days in summer, so everybody is happy. The Arctic ice volume is going way down, so that will be a nice story.
