Can Christ the Redeemer statue be flooded?

Christ Redeemer Sunk by Greenpeace

Greenpeace highlight climate change impact by sinking landmarks

Christ the Redeemer statue sits on a 9.5 meter pedestal located at the peak of the 700-metre Corcovado mountain it seems quite unlikely to be sunk by sea level rises in the near future. However if Green peace are predicting this 700 meter sea level rise I agree that would be challenging for human populations.

Does anyone know how much sea level is predicted to rise, how much it has risen recently?
