Question 1 (sea level rise) is silly, as currently worded

Posted April 23, 2014 by Kevin Trenberth:

Sea level rose 18 mm from Jan 2011 to Jan 2013, so 9 mm/year (after a
huge dip from water dumped on land). The issue is that ENSO and related variability can easily make big changes from one year to another. So one needs to average over say 10 years.

        Thanks very much for pointing out this flaw in Question 1. Revisions are being considered; the current wording of this question will not be scored.
