This is a very alarming and serious story. I hope everyone reads this. Even if the sea rises a foot it would be catastrophic to many countries, including ours. Weather you think carbon is a problem or not, I think our development, deforestation and heat output is doing enough damage.

Aww man.

That sounds serious.

Thankfully, in preparation for this disaster, the banksters have set up exchanges where carbon credits can be bought and sold...

If you're curious what 3 feet would look like? They have simulators to show.

Global Flood Simulation

Just take some of the water with a grain of salt. I don' think 30 meters of rise will put a lake in Death Valley ...but it's a computer sim and they just plug blue where elevation indicates water would be above land.

At this link there is an interactive map. You can zoom to any part of the world and dial in 0 to 60 meter rise and see the results.

Particularly scary for me, I'm in New Orleans.

Darn Wrabbit! you are fast buddy.

Awesome, I'll have water front property!

But not until the levels rise by 30 feet...


Will it help if I let my cars idle 24/7?

I just happened to have the simulators on my bookmark bar for something entirely different at the moment and it was handy. Glad it's interesting to check out.

thats scary stuff, because the coastlines have never changed in the history of the world right????

Meh I live 60m above see level.

Hmmm... A 60 metre rise would result in me having a beachfront property. How long will I have to wait for that?

I dunno... buy a Ouija Board and ask Noah how that was to experience. lol.... 120 feet would be quite a dry and barren time for most of Antarctica, wouldn't it? No more ice to see.

It's happened before in the earths history so its not unnatural but that's a quick rise in a short period of time. Based on weather changes its quite believable. We truly do live in unique times. I doubt such changes were so noticeable to those before us.

I'm wondering how much this rise (or even 1/2 m) would alter the salinity of the oceans, and then what sort of impact this would have. With fresh water being dumped at such a rapid rate I'm sure we will be finding out within the next couple of decades. Going to need to do some research on this.

Good thing at the rate we're going we won't be around in 2100.

I think the thing to take away from this (at least for me) is:

Don't move to Florida!

So, do you have a point besides being an ass? People have died before too, so that means you won't mind if someone shoots you either right?

I already live below sea level. 3 feet wont make any difference. I think dike-building will become big business though.

No panic, we'll adapt if needed.

According to your link, the Netherlands are screwed with a 3' rise.

You're right. What crappy luck too. Really. I looked around the world a bit and the only other nation I could see that would really take it hard at 1 meter would be Vietnam. Everything south of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) to the Gulf of Thailand and across, literally to the Cambodian Border would be under a bit of water. One GIANT Rice paddy I guess, given the literal depth we're talking. A smattering of dry spots but none large enough to put a water buffalo on for more than a day. It would be bad in a few spots at that level in the world.

Then of course the max 60 Meters that one goes, gives an effect the guys on the ISS would appreciate the impact from. I guess the moral to that version is to pray real hard Earth never takes a space object impact too small to do global damage by itself but large enough to do catastrophic local damage ......Right around the South Pole region.

In the meantime...

Let's keep zapping the ionosphere,
and seeding the clouds to make rain,
and damming our waterways,
and spraying poisons on our farmlands,
and growing mutant DNA foods,
and inventing new deadly viruses,
and firing depleted uranium weapons,
and polluting our hydrological cycle,
and making everything out of non-biodegradable plastic,
and chopping down our forests,
and lining the banksters' pockets,
and voting in narcissistic morons as our leaders,
and pumping growth hormones into our livestock,
and injecting chemicals into our bodies,
and over-dosing on pharmaceuticals,
and developing bigger warheads,
and slaughtering innocent civilians,
and building bigger cities,
and killing off entire species,
and boiling water from radioactive materials to create energy,
and pumping 300 poisonous chemicals into the ground to draw up some "natural" gas,
and consuming fake McChicken pieces...



Okay... what was the question again ?

That little site does not take in account that the netherlands are protected by really cool dikes and other real cool stuff to keep the water out and to get ridd of acces water. If there where no dikes there, the lowest point off the netherlands would be under 7 meters right now. 3 feet wont take the netherlands out, nor would another 7 meters.

Fear mongering only works if you fall for the trick.

Wow, that sounds like something I would say.

However, imo on this thread's subject, I think a 3 foot sea level rise by 2100 is pretty optimistic. But hey, no one really knows or can predict they future. I wouldn't live in coastal elevations at this point in time.
