didnt realised its that bad. no wonder ppl dismiss it all together.

already the north pole where santa claus used to live is a lake, not his workshop, anymore.

all glaciers melted by 2100 and the ice caps and poles all gone by 2200 is not too far away for our next coupe generations. if anyone care anymore about other than themself. others, may as well cash in on while can.

but what dormant virus, bacteria, or creature will they unleash that exterminate most or all of us?

Here’s What 250 Feet of Sea Level Rise Looks Like



“The sea level rise that the [U.S. Geological Survey] has predicted is about 260 feet, or 80 meters. And so any of the maps made will be at that level or lower”

There is absolutely NOTHING we can do to stop the melting of the frozen regions on our planet. People will have to move to other areas. Mother Nature is the boss and that's that.

But to give you a bit of history of Antarctica's temperatures, I have linked a site you might want to read. I have posted a bit here. Bolding my own handiwork.


The coldest continent, Antarctica, became that way by progressively cooling over the past 37 million years, scientists have found.

Antarctica was once significantly warmer than today. Just prior to 40 million years ago, past studies found, the continent was home to diverse vegetation and experienced average temperatures between 30 and 51 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 1 and 10 degrees Celsius).

It is hotly debated as to why Antarctica then grew colder.

Drilling down

To help solve the mystery, scientists collected seismic data and drilled out tubes of sediment up to more than 100 feet (30 meters) long during two cruises in the northernmost Antarctic Peninsula area. The task wasn't always easy.

"You spend a lot of time lowering drill pipe to the seafloor only to have an iceberg approach and force you to pull pipe and move to another location," said researcher John Anderson, a marine geologist at Rice University. "As you can imagine, this was frustrating, but expected."

The researchers next reconstructed the region's climate and vegetation history by analyzing fossilized spores and pollen, marine organism remains, and sand and pebbles. Materials deposited in sediment are laid down in layers, and therefore can be pinned down to general points in time if these layers were not later disturbed.

They found that 37 million to 34 million years ago, reduced concentrations of atmospheric carbon dioxide coincided with increased mountain glacier formation. From 34 million to 23 million years ago, vegetation primarily consisted of woodlands and tundra dominated by conifers and southern beech. Limited pockets of this tundra were still present until 12.8 million years ago, with this long transition from a temperate alpine region to one of cold and ice continuing until nearly the present day.

Maybe evolution will give us gills by 2200 ? 🤔

You just don't think right.

If we give these people half of our paycheck then it won't happen at all.

Get with the times!

First of all we force idiot's that have been stealing and hiding superior energy technology's to give them up for the good of our national security's.

Then we build huge eco friendly heat exchange system's a mile out to sea and FREEZE a wall of ice there, we put pumps to take our rivers OVER that ice wall, we simultaneously cool the ocean's and the planet using this technology AND even if sea level's continue to rise using these ICE damn's around our coasts - which are easy to repair and harder than concrete so long as we keep them cool, we keep our land safe - remember during the glacial maximum of the last ice age (when most water was frozen in glaciers) the seal level was about 400 feet lower).

What you are showing is not the end of the world BUT the end of most coastal, capital and economic city's in the world.

People will move inland, Hydroponics' will provide more food than old fashioned ordinary agriculture and the population will continue to grow unless the scar mongering elite whom want to cull us all get there way.

Nah,

By 2200 we'll be living on space stations and giant starships en route to colonize the galaxy.

Haha, suckers!
I just moved to the top of a mountain AND I love jetskiiing.

Maybe "you're all gonna die from a drought!!" and "you're all gonna drown in the flood!!" could get together and make a baby and call it desalination?
Cali could probably drink at least 4.5 glaciers, I bet.

Ha, maybe just maybe, more likely though it is quite possible people will be mining the asteroid belt and the outer planet's - or there moon's, the ultra rich could be living off world in huge orbital structures or on the moon (of they could murder us all and use robot's for there slave work force).

In the future humanity may even learn to make proper use of it's environment.

But we are unique (almost beavers also do this as do several other species) in that we don't only adapt to our environment we adapt our environment to suit us.

The " Ice Caps " Will NEVER Melt . That Story is Delusional .

260 ft sea level rise?
Um hmmmm. Like really Becky?

Someone needs to beat up their scientists or writer for lying.
I wonder if some nerd on here can translate how many gallons that is to reach 260 ft?
Ever fly across the Atlantic, or the gulf even?

Jesus, what a load of bs.


Added...looks like 320 billion miles cubed of water
139.7 million square miles of surface area
Not sure what to do with those figures..lol

Well even if ALL the ice in the world melt's Mandroid you also have to factor in how that weight in the ocean's will displace the crust, heavier ocean's mean's the ocean bed will be slowly pushed down by the increased weight of the water and meanwhile the process known as Glacial Rebound will cause land formerly weighted down by ice to slowly rise back up.

I do not think the science is wrong but it is based on a static model rather than a dynamic model.

That’s cheaper than the Democrats they want 60% .

Sorry.. I was doing the math on the New Green Steal.

Eventually they want all of your paycheck.

To protect you and help you and serve you, of course.

Lol

We are derail in this thread .( mostly me )

I’m gonna cut and run!

Check out my new thread I can’t come up with a AOC.

Got any ideas ?

the "science"??

I'm sure someone could calculate the volume required to raise the level 260 ft across 140 million square miles. If one cubic ft of water takes up the volume of 7.48 gallons.
That's gonna need to be a big ice cube.

Ever do the icecube in a glass experiment, which is relevant to the discussion when speaking about icebergs, specifically floating ones?
Pour an icewater to the rim and watch it melt. It already displaces the water beyond what the melted water does.
When melted, the level lowers in the glass.
In other words, all the floating ice is raising the water level already. More so than once it melts.
Over land, melting into the sea would raise the level though.
I just don't know the numbers on those values to be able to compare the volume of water created vs volume of ice figures.

The ice over land is the only relevant measurement, the floating stuff will lower sea level when melted.
Somone correct me if I'm wrong, but 260 ft sounds like 100% bs.

a reply to: vnski Being there are many maps recorded from early explorers that show Antartica and So America much of the same,much like other story's the area has been ice free in not so distant past like a few hundred years,not millions
