Hi Tim et al,
this seems good to me. Not sure why I am a co-author as did not do
anything.... (maybe that is why I am #6).

A summary would be good. Here is my suggestion.

1) Global sea-level controlled by climate forcings.
2) No acceleration in All because of slow recovery from Tambora +
anthropogenic forcings.
3) All simulation has significantly less sea-level rise than do obs.
4) North Atlantic sea-level is strongly influenced by AMOC.
5) Tropical sea-level rise strongly correlated with global sea-level
suggesting we should focus our paleo sea-level data collection efforts
6) Limited sites suitable for paleo-sea level and they don't show much
