There is was never any contention that the sea would rise 20 feet IN THIS CENTURY, nor any media report of that I am aware of...

Hansen has said and written on several occasions that BAU ==> 5+ meter rise by 2090. Five meters is over 16 feet, so 5+ meters is getting close to that 20 feet.

For example,

Of course he also predicted the West Side Highway in NYC would be underwater by 2030.
