It is not a matter of a few years, but rather of a few hundred years. Fortunately the sea can only rise another 100 yards, yet, that is a lot!
As the globe warms up the slope of the sea-level rise rate increases. Even if you go back 1,000,000 years the "peak" temperature was not that high as it is now. The last peak 125,000 years ago was lower too.
Measurements of CO2 started in Hawaii in the 1950's As the permafrost warms up (and the ocean too) more CO2 will be released. The permafrost holds large amounts of methane (another green-house gas).

Solubility of CO2 in the ocean decreases with higher temp., just like in a can of Coke.

Analyzing cylinders of ice -extracted by drilling- from Antarctica, we can discover the CO2 level the air had (up to about 600 million years ago). Small mammals have been on earth since 50 million years ago, but humans only 5 million years. We cannot breath an air with more than 1000 ppm (parts per million). During Cambrian there were only plants (basically), and fish during the Silurian and Devonian.
The Globe flooded by about 60m, equiv. to 60 yards (about) The Globe flooded by about 100m, equiv. to 100 yards (about)
It is not just Miami, most cities on the eastern seaboard are at sea level. The Mississippi delta (especially New Orleans) will soon be in trouble.
