hey there anonentity,
when a global warming trend was first modeled in the 90's, one thing that those researchers said,THAT EVERYBODY IGNORED, outside of unexpected occurances, ie, huge volcanoes, cosmic impacts, or solar output variability, the current trend in global warming will result in a return to glaciation, for several reasons.
A) Degalciation of Greenland(melting fresh water) will have two impacts, one being only freshwater evaporates from the oceans, adding to the water vapor load in the atmopsphere, and the inflow of freshwater into the northern atlantic affects the north atlantic conveyor bringing warm water to europe.
B) Water vapor in the upper atmoshpere is a parasol gas, it blocks sunlight.
We can adjust for a warmer planet but going back to even alimited ice age would be disasterous for our civ.
Thing is, Sea Level rise has nothing to do with C02 levels, it's been going on for over a 100 years long before the C02 started to rise.
You only have to look at the increases in the NYC pump budget to see what we can expect this decade.
