the2ofusr1 ...As humans we have ways of adapting or just plain getting out of the kitchen when it gets too hot .
Simply move Hong Kong, London, NY etc etc etc, not to mention many low lying countries that do not have the means?
I'm not trying to be an alarmist, trust me.

90% of everything we have comes to us through shipping. Adapting major ports to accommodate the threats involved in rising sea levels is going to be a costly endeavour on a global scale if we want to keep that system going, never mind our desire to live on the coast in places like Venice Beach.
I like the idea of floating ports. That makes a lot of sense. How to get those millions of containers to shore might be problematic though. Mini-containers ships?
The Mulberry harbour just off the Normandy coast went up and down with the tides, as did the connecting pontoon driveway that connected the harbour to the shore, no need for smaller container ships.
