The consensus from scientists in the aricle is that in 200 to 1000 years for the oceans to raise by 10ft. What says ATS?

news.yahoo.com...


With a rapid increase in the Arctic as well and global warming accelerating to, it isn't going to take 100 years.


I wonder/ worry about that scenario.

More chinwobbling......that's all.....it must suit the agenda....
Science is no longer trustworthy as they are entirely dependant on funding, and must have results that meet the funding partys criteria it seems.....
Too many reports of rigged data have emerged....
All in all, id put the bulk of Scientists right on the current PTB agenda, as they are not independent or perhaps never were......

A ten foot rise of ocean levels would obliterate Floridas Infrastructure if not the state.....
Would render much of current port facilities unuseable due to tidal action, and change earths weather patterns.
Would spell the inundation of Bangaladesh,and other low lying places, many low islands/atols would be gone......

There are questions in my mind as to what the redistribution of the actuall weight of all that material would do to the earths axis, etc....perhaps the computer modelling will improve in the future, but as for now it cannot be relied upon for serious accuracy....remember these are modelled predictions....and we all know what that can mean in terms of meeting the expected results of same.....
Time will tell, but no amount of carbon taxes will change anything significantly.....

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


As land Ice breaks from the Glacier(s) it moves into the sea and skews the land ice/ sea ice ratio so LAND ICE is contributing to SEA ICE. At least that's my understanding..

From the ground in this extreme northern part of Antarctica



Can somebody please explain the "Northern" part of Antarctica?



The Antarctic Peninsula is the northernmost part of the mainland of Antarctica.

I do agree to a point. I am all for the idea that we are just coming out of an ice age but I'll still won't just throw out ideas presented to me by people that know much more then me.
Or just use that thought process to say that man has no contributing factors.

How much damage do you reckon ten feet would make?


A lot to my Malibu Beach house...wait...I don't have one. I forgot.

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.

And that volcanic activity increases when the sun goes quiet due to increased decay of radioactive elements in earths core. A wonderful thermostat from mother nature to try keep us warm

Well, ice does tend to melt in the Summer time, and it's sort of late Summer in the Antarctic part of the planet. On the other side, the northern hemisphere is experiencing a lot of cold weather.

I am more concerned about surviving a nuclear winter in the next few years than I am about GW sea levels 100 years from now.

And to back that banking sector plan up, they've begun Phase 2 to initiate an increase in volcanic eruptions, seismic activity, sinkholes, extreme weather patterns and loud booms. And when that doesn't work, I can't wait to see Phase 3...those dirty rotten bankers!

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.

The ice melting has something to do with the fact that the poles are shifting away from the north pole and further south doesnt it?

Wouldnt that mean that eventually the ice will re accumulate in the new true north and south?

Thats it will melt and a new glacial period will start once they are are done shifting for a while right?

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.


Look.....



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.

Don't believe the BS most people on here will try to have you believe. The fresh water will disrupt the oceans currents as the poles continue to move and cause a new glaciation period in another region of the world.

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.

Well, what about me? I'm as poor as they come, yet I care enough to do my best to spread the word. I'm not following along with what the global elite try to tell me to do either, I can see for myself the escalation in climate-caused events on a worldwide level, so somethings going on. Maybe, the one's you refer to are trying to capitalize on something that is inevitably occurring. Shame on them, but it doesn't change the facts.

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".

Possibly. The weather may change but we have the technology to adapt to the changes.

What we need to do is start living for humanity and art and stop living for greed and capitalism or religious wars so we can start using the technology we have to our benefit instead of a means to a greedy end.
