Seems it's a nuanced answer:

Depends on whether you're talking about ice on land (e.g. Greenland) or just frozen water at the pole (Arctic sea ice).

Quote:
if the Greenland ice sheet were to completely melt and the meltwater were to completely flow into the oceans, then global sea level would rise by about seven meters (23 feet) and the Earth would rotate more slowly, with the length of the day becoming longer than it is today, by about two milliseconds.

Melting sea ice, such as the Arctic ice cap, does not change sea level because the ice displaces its volume and, hence, does not change the Earth’s rotation.

I'll just also point out that a good proportion of forecast sea level rise is not due to ice melting, but the oceans becoming warmer and hence the water expanding.

For those still in denial, worth reading this :

https://www.theguardian.com/science/...ming-passes-99

And one of the linked papers:

https://www.nature.com/articles/s41561-019-0400-0


Look at the graphs in Fig 1 of linked paper.
