I just watch the Jaime Maussan ufo conference video, and at the end of it, he started to go on about the world being flooded due to the melting of the ice caps.

I knew this as it was bought up in the British tabloids 20 years ago. But Mr Maussan did have some computer generated pictures of what the earth might look like after the flooding occurs.

I was wondering if anyone can confirm these pics or has any scientific links to more of these computer simulated pics of what WILL most likely happen since what now has come to light, with the most recent admissions from climate researchers, that this could all happen a lot more sooner then they had first anticipated.

Greenland's Glaciers: Melting and On The Move

Truly scary stuff as these pictures from the Maussan video of the earth flooded shows. England and most of North America are completely submerged. Where will we all go?


europe

north america

oz

africa

asia


Please remove the pics IF they breach the T&C. as i copied them of the Jaime Maussan ufo conference video.

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 thick.

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.

Not sure where we'd go, but that map sure looks cool with lot's of islands on it.
Might make for some interesting vacation spots in the future.

Yep the pictures do look a bit extreme but i remember the pictures they displayed in the papers years ago and England did look considerably smaller. Actually most of it was gone, and they said it would occur by 2050!

what is up with the west coast
Did the land leavel drop
I live a 2000' and its under water

If the water level rises so much what are the new Islands off the East and West Coast doing there. They are huge and you would think a rising water level would hide Islands not reveal them.

That’s why i was looking for some confirmation. New Zealand seems to have grown in size.


I was thinking along the lines of the global axis maybe? The water might be distributed differently causing land to appear where it wasn’t before.

I would like to see how he came up with those shapes. It does not make much sense. For example, the entire state of Nevada, averaging over 4,000 feet (1270 m) above sea level, is submerged, while the entire American midwest, with a lower elevations, remains dry.

The entire Sierra Nevada/Cascade mountain range, with elevations over 10,000 feet (~3100 m) is gone.

And what about the island in the North Pacific? There is nothing there now. It is pretty deep water.

Mr. Maussan needs to go back to grade school geography class.

I agree, I think the map is fraught with problems.

The addition of land in the Bahamas, New Zealand and in the Pacific make no sense.

I also think I have seen this map as an offshoot from Edgar Casey websites that talk about 'earth changes', and those extra land masses have something to do with massive earthquakes he was supposed to have predicted.

Sorry folks, but I think this map is fantasy.

This guy is on crack IMO. He shows in his "flooded earth that the rockies are under water. If this was so the all of north america would be underwater. He is a joke

Hello loam, do you have any links to this offshoot from the Edgar Casey website?

But totally agree. The maps from the video do look a tad dramatic so i did a little hunting and came up with this concerning Africa.

AFRICA'S NEW OCEAN A Continent Splits Apart

And talking of cracks..... lol



Although i have not been able to find a simulated map yet, i found a student looking for the same thing. His research led to a suggesting from the Pew Centre on Global Climate Change to........


from article.......

"take a topographical map, one that shows the elevations of different areas, you can make the map yourself by seeing which land masses are under 3 meters."


3 meters or more even.......

mmmm

Still, can anyone help in locating some simulated maps which are from a more trusted source?

I am convinced human activity is accelerating the rate of global warming, which may well be a natural cycle we do not understand. Many observers say Kyoto is too little, too late.

I think Maussan’s source for maps has made so many obvious errors that the work is to be dismissed. I live in Jacksonville. The city hall (downtown) is stated to be 20 feet above ‘sea level,’ whatever that is. It’s about 20 miles east to the Atlantic. The St Johns River is navigable by small to medium draft ships up to Jax, as we call it. I may have to return to Louisville, my former home, which the plaques say is 450 ft above seal level.

Hear is some maps for the east coast

You'd have my applause but I've ran out, awesome find.

Thanks for all of you’re input, and praise, it’s very much appreciated.

And a BIG thanks to the two mods that gave me the applause.

allwayseeken, this was one of the links that turned up in your google search Globalis - an interactive world map which was pretty cool.

I thought i would give the Pew Centre on Global Climate Change advice a try, so i took some screen shots from Microsoft Encarta and have [crudely] painted over the land indicated as being below sea level. I may have been quite generous, but the images below might be what the western world looks like in 20 or so years. I can’t imagine it happening in 6 years but you never know. Don, i think i will be staying in the highland to.

There is so much ice in Greenland and Antarctica that it will surely take a half century to melt it all, with JUST at 3 deg C. rise in average temps. And any higher rise in the world’s average temp is almost inconceivable (for me.) Again, I just hope we don’t cross a threshold back from which we cannot come.

there is not nearly that much water contaned in the worlds ice.

the maps are so fake its not even funny.

that must have been the reason it was in the tabloids

Yes there is, if not more than that even.

Look at a globe and you will realize how much ice there actually is.
