Another article stated that if the ice had actually been lost from Greenland that Time had claimed the oceans would have risen by 5 feet.

1) Time is not mentioned anywhere in the article you posted.

2) Neither is Time Life

3) The point of the article is that scientists did an excellent job of policing and correcting the information.
