Further comments on the physics of the maximum 1.1mm/year increase is found here: Swedish Scientist Accuses UN's IPCC of Falsifying Data and Destroying Evidence The article makes the point:
"1.1 mm per year? That means that if this were to continue for 1000 years, sea levels would be 1.1 meters higher. Doesnt sound very catastrophic, does it?"
So, in the next 100 years, we can expect a 4 inch rise. And by 2050, we'll be at the bottom of the 40-year sun cycle and at a better place to look at the whole phenomenon with better information.
