No, it means that the author is yet another conspiracy driven, sensationalist, charlatan:

 

The Mysterious Receding Seas (9781413439922): Richard Guy

In this book, nowhere does Richard Guy present peer-reviewed papers, or even ... levels have risen, such as the flooding of the Egyptian Port that Paul visited.

It's just another inconvenient truth, again...

It doesn't matter, actually. Instead looking at the article's author qualifications, it would be a more scientific approach to verify his sources such as “The Mysterious Receding Seas” by Richard Guy. The author also cites other pieces of informations which are easily to check and verify, just Google any of the ancient ports in the article and check by yourself, it's that easy....

 

 

 

Why not just Google:

Siltation - Wikipedia

Ice masses in Greenland and the Antarctic have a massive gravitational pull. So if they melt and as a result the average sea level rises, levels nearby would fall and levels further away would rise more than the average. So apart from direct observations of the ice sheet thickness and size near the poles, the first clues to a  global rising sea level are lower sea levels in places like Northern Europe and Newfoundland. 

An average 2 degree warmer climate and associated melting of Greenland and the associated global sea level increase, would result in a massive economic boom (more fertile land and longer growing season) to Northern Europe and North America. There are no signs the South Pole is melting, so all the extra water from the north would flow in that direction. The result is significant problems for Africa, South America, South Asia and Oceania. If the Southpole also starts to melt, the countries around the equator would have immense problems.

Irrespective of the differing points of view, the sea level rise is continuing.  The good news is that around 2090 most of Bangkok could be inundated.  The bad news is it is not happening sooner.

No Bangkok. is sinking.  Sea levels fall. Greenland has it's thickest icecap in decades. Next warming in 90K years. Don't
