There will be upheavals in the Arctic and in the Antarctic that will make for the eruption of volcanoes in the torrid areas, and there will then be the shifting of the poles so that where there have been those of a frigid or semi-tropical will become the more tropical, and moss and fern will grow.
The earth will be broken up in many places. The early part will see a change in the physical aspect of the west coast of America. There will be open waters appear in the northern portions of Greenland.
There will be new lands seen off the Caribbean Sea, and dry land will appear. South America will be shaken from the uppermost portion to the end, and in the Antarctic off Tierra Del Fuego, land and a strait with rushing water.
As I recall, I provided an answer.
I think that is what you asked me in an earlier thread if I recall.

1: “Global Warning” and its Aftermath
In the early months of 2005, several scientists in the field of Climate Change and Footprint
Overshoot were beginning to assert that political decision-making and effective action were
not responding rationally to clearly presented scientific material. While some of the
resistance and inertia could doubtless be attributed to the influence of vested interests and the
political fear of losing electoral support, the intensity of the dynamics of denial pointed to
powerful underlying social processes that were largely unconscious.
Drawing on three decades of consultancy-research focussed on the psychodynamics of social
systems facing rapid change in conditions of low resource and high stress, I began to explore
how best to consult to the process. A three-part paper entitled “Global Warning”, was
prepared in order to begin to raise awareness of this agenda of social psychology. The
document identified not one, but three, threatening waves of change currently facing
• Climate change
• Footprint overshoot (limits to growth)
• Psychodynamic response
Even at that early stage of analysis it is fascinating to note that I was driven to conclude:
There is a critical point in the system at which the feed-back loops become dominant and
render further increase in temperature independent of any reduction in human-generated
greenhouse gases. It is essential that this threshold should not be crossed. As feed-back
systems are activated even below the critical threshold, it becomes rapidly more difficult, and
massively more costly, to bring the system back under control.
Time-lag between increased levels of atmospheric carbon-dioxide and the consequent
stabilisation of appropriate global temperature, means that further global warming is already
activated. Rapid transition towards a low- or zero-carbon-emission culture is, therefore,
now imperative. That may not, however, be enough to halt the feed-back systems already
triggered. It is doubtful if effective programmes of carbon-dioxide sequestration can be put in
place and we may have to face the consequences of uncontrollable climate change.
Our oceans are dying and need the fresh water so the melting of the Arctic is probably a good thing for the Earth, but not for us.
We seriously need to wake up and rally together to change this world into a place where our kids and future generations can survive.
We need to act NOW! Watch the video and you will understand the urgency.
The problem is that it's way more powerful then co2, 67x on average and the

Had you watched the video or read the PDF you wouldn't be saying it's of no concern RIGHT NOW. The proof the oceans are melting is overwhelming. Methane is the main scare. You can actually watch it melt (live on the video) and see the methane all over the world from a computer model.
It's melting at an alarming rate.
While methane doesn’t linger as long in the atmosphere as carbon dioxide, it is initially far more devastating to the climate because of how effectively it absorbs heat. In the first two decades after its release, methane is 84 times more potent than carbon dioxide.
