Even if ALL the glaciers somehow positioned themselves directly on the equator, it would take more than a few years for them to melt and raise sea levels 500 feet. 500 feet is the most that the sea level could EVER rise, and that is if ALL frozen waters at the poles melted, which would take thousands of years, even if the temperatures rose 20 degrees,
For these things to happen, the earth would need to go through geological changes, very abruptly. It's almost impossible.
When they were Writing up the Declaration of Independence nobody was going to sign the Declaration of Independence when asked to sign it.
But... a hooded man from the second story started orating for 20 minutes on how important the Declaration of Independence was going to be in the Future and that it would change our world for the good, then everyone rushed in and signed the Declaration of Independence after this man told them of the future.
