Kode Posted: “Flooded Earth . . The Jaime Maussan ufo conference video about the world being flooded due to the melting of the ice caps. Mr
Maussan had some computer generated pictures of the earth after the flooding occurs. I was wondering if this could happen a lot sooner then they had
first anticipated?” [Edited by Don W]
WOW! That was a great post! I suppose Maussan’s source is using the elevation contour lines to show the land to be put under water if ALL the ice in
the Northern and Southern Hemispheres melted. It looks to me as if M’s source is using the 300 feet sea level rise scenario.
I am of the (unprovable) opinion that the 300 feet rise is TOO much. I’m more in the 30-50 feet range if ALL the ice melts. This is partly because
the ice caps are said to hold 1.5% of the Earth’s water. I say this also because I have tried to do the numbers and using many unsupported
assumptions, it’s where I end. 30 to 50 feet rise. Greenland - 600,000 sq miles of ice. Antarctica 2.5 million sq miles of ice. Both average 2 miles
Just what effect on the 140 million square miles of ocean averaging 2 miles deep will this thawed water have? Why would not depths rise 150 feet
arouind the earth? (That being 1.5% of 10,000 ft. avg depth.) ALSO, I have not seen anyone deal with the possibility Greenland and Antarctica might
both RISE a few feet due to the removal of the weight of the ice, which would allow more space for the newly melted water to occupy. Hmm?
Even if my numbers are right, I think 50 million people in the US would be adversely effected. Obviously they would move inland. Property values would
skyrocket so much that the government would probably take over and apportion out the land based on the number in your family, etc.
Around the world I think even more people would be effected. Maybe as many as 1 billion. Same solution. Displaced people move inland, governments
redistribute the land based on needs, not wealth. No more gated communities. Democracy reigns. Egalitarianism prevails. Sam Walton, go home.
How soon? Who knows. No one, to answer my question. Is it happening now? Yes. Will it stop before a world-wide disaster? Maybe. Maybe not. Current
indications are the RATE of melt is increasing. Not a good omen. What we are fearful of is we - the world - may cross a threshold the back from which
we cannot come. Excuse my Yiddish.
