The consensus from scientists in the aricle is that in 200 to 1000 years for the oceans to raise by 10ft. What says ATS?
With a rapid increase in the Arctic as well and global warming accelerating to, it isn't going to take 100 years.

Just out of curiousity. It says that the ice is melting where the ocean is hitting it.
Meaning that the weight of the ice is already on the water, and the law of buoyancy is in effect correct? So as soon as the weight of the ice is on the water, it's already risen even before melting.
Only land based ice will raise the water level. Humans will adapt regardless

NASA funding is dependant on supporting global warming which is why many former NASA scientist and astronauts protested years back. We are not dealing with science here at all, its a political agenda to increase profits for the banking sector in the futures markets in carbon trading.

Over 68 percent of all the fresh water on Earth is found in icecaps and glaciers, and 90% of that, is in Antarctica.
As the ice disappears in Antarctica, so does this huge percentage of our fresh water. Perhaps we should find a way to preserve some of it.... for a non-rainy day.
Another possible trigger for rapid climate change is ocean circulation. Today, warm water from the equator is carried towards the poles on ocean surface currents.
Because Milankovitch’s theory tied climate change to the slow and regular variations in Earth’s orbit, the scientific community expected that climate change would also be slow and gradual. But the ice cores showed that while it took nearly 10,000 years for the Earth to totally emerge from the last ice age and warm to today’s balmy climate, one-third to one-half of the warming—about 15 degrees Fahrenheit—occurred in about 10 years, at least in Greenland.

No but they will highlight all natural climate variations in media to try convince the gullible they need pay more from their wallet to save humanity from doom. Its clear that the elite this world are only interested in power and greed. They don't care about the environment nor do they care about the people. The global warming brigade helps the elite destroy our earth, not save it.

I think we have less than 100 years to fix a whole host of far more dire problems before we see the "recurving of heavily populated coastlines".
