Global sea rise challenges

Firstly I am not a scientist of engineer but have a business background and an enquiring climate skeptic.
A lot is being said today about the potential of sea level rises due to the con of Climate Change.
Research shows that seas are not actually rising but in most cases inundation is caused by storm surges around the planet. This has been happening since time began.
The Sydney Island Fort Denison’s history refutes the scare mongering sea rise levels since they began measuring tidal movements. One interesting sea level rise appeared in 1960 when Fort Denison experienced a higher level than normal measurement. It was caused by a Tidal Wave created by the Chilean earthquake.
(On May 22, 1960 a great Mw 9.5 earthquake, the largest earthquake ever instrumentally recorded, occurred off the coast of southern Chile. This earthquake generated a tsunami that was destructive not only along the coast of Chile, but also across the Pacific in Hawaii, Japan, the Philippines and east coast Australia).
I personally witnessed this from Stockton when a large swell entered the harbor and actually pushed one of the Stockton vehicular ferries up the Hunter River. The next day the news read that the Chilean Earthquake had caused the surge in the tide.
In the Hunter there are two quarries one at Mount Vincent and one half way up Mount Falk road in the Wattagan Mountains. Both quarries are visited by geology students to study the sedimentation and vast array of marine fossils in the quarry. This would suggest that the east coast of Australia at some time in history was completely under water.
The Maldives rely completely on tourism for their economy. They are currently constructing more tourist accommodation and a airfield for their expected tourism growth. This would suggest that they aren’t worried about sea level rise in the foreseeable future.
There is empirical evidence that many Pacific Islands are actually growing not being covered by the sea. (Jun 3, 2010 – Climate scientists have expressed surprise at findings that many low-lying Pacific islands are growing, not sinking. … “We’ve now got evidence the physical foundations of these islands will still be there in 100 years.” Kench says the growth of the islands can keep pace with rising sea levels).
