Call me stupid if you wish but isn’t the Ross Ice shelf already floating in the sea? If so, how will it raise sea level when it breaks away?

Exactly.

When discussing the effects of the Antarctic ice melt, it is often overlooked that some part of Antarctic ice is floating ice and not continental ice, and further that the ice shelfs that are presently and/or most prone to calving are already floating and therefore will not add to sea level rise.
