Will the increased melt lubricate fault lines causing an increase in earthquakes? I have no sources but recall reading such a few years ago.
Dr King described how the ice caps like those on Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, had been continuous for hundreds of thousands of years and survived through successive warm periods but were now expected to disappear in 30 to 40 years.
She said that the government had set ambitious targets for 2010 and beyond for virtually every big environmental issue.

As to dates when this might occur... well the US Navy is making plans to secure a new sea saying that by 2015 the Artic will become a new navegable sea while others say that it will take longer. Present figures put the possibility is very high these changes will happen within a decade, althou some other sources say it will take a couple of decades or perhaps more.
The fire frequencies associated with the droughts of the 'Mediaeval Warm Period' are only half as great as those recorded during the early-Holocene insolation maximum. Model results suggest that the temperature increases associated with the insolation maximum are a good analogue for those expected with global warming. If this is the case, future droughts may be more severe than any experienced in the last several thousand years, and these data should be considered in planning for future change.

Well so far this climate change hasnt done anything for the Atlantic hurricane season. It looked like it was ready to pop a few weeks ago and then things went dead, I wanna see how this reported climate chae will affect that. I am in central Florida and it was been extremly hot and dry for the past week, right now its mid night and still feels like 90. I havent noticed anything strange weather locally, our T-storms have been strong at times but nothing I havent seen before, though the global satellite loops like all global weather systems are moving at a faster rate than I ever seen, I not sure but thats what it looks like to me.
