Just a quick comment about the slide in Unit 4 showing Arctic sea ice. Global sea levels do not rise as a result of melting sea ice! They are rising because land-based ice is melting. Sea ice is just like an ice cube in a glass of water. No net change in level as the ice cube melts.

Good catch! We ought to correct/clarify that to say "Greenland ice" or "ice caps" melt. Thanks!
