Sea level rise by the numbers

I sometimes think that these comparisons between swimming pools and football pitches are quite useful, but then I sometimes think they are terrible. For me, I think this was useful in one sense but terrible in another: The scrolling-past-the-same-thing-for-a-while gimmick is, I think, quite useful to help readers understand scale. But telling me Michael Phelps would take 90 years to swim across it is like... a big WTF moment.
