Last time the Earth was this warm, sea level was a whole lot higher 

Humans are currently turning up the planet’s thermostat much more quickly than natural processes have done in the past. Still, we learn a lot by uncovering the way the planet has responded to different set points on the Earth’s thermostat. We know that we’ve already warmed the globe enough to significantly raise sea levels. The more complicated question that researchers keep working to answer is “Just how quickly will it rise?”
