According to this article, parts of Japan have sunk by about four feet as a result of the earthquake, causing big problems of flooding that have nothing to do with the tsunami. This is perhaps what we can expect globally if sea levels rise, as predicted, by a similar amount. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/world/asia-pacific/japan-sinking-coast-lowered-by-march-quake-cities-face-daily-floods-at-high-tide/article2015026/

Well, part of the issue is suddenness. AGW won't lift sea-levels that fast.
