The only way that the water will rise is if the input of water into the ocean from other points remains the same...and evaporation doesn't take care of the rest. ( I wonder how much water is in the air when it's hotter?) The hotter it gets, the less snow falls, and the less rivers don't overrun their banks. (Sometimes a thinner ice sheet means there wa sless precipitation that year.)
Until they actually measure the sea level and find it higher where I live, I'm not going to panic. Between the sea rising and my home supposedly sinking a foot a year (bogus scientific info, I tell you, since my elevation has remained the same my entire life), I should be up S*** creek witout a paddle.
And by the way, I live in an area where we have 2 crop seasons. Maybe one day, they'll have the same in the north.

The history channel had a killer show on mayan predictions on last weekend. Specifically at the end Chalum Balum(sp?) predictions. Im not too big on them but the depiction of the katun for 12-21-2012 was a snake, some holy men and people pouring water on gaia. As in mass flooding maybe? Might be relevant, now 6 yrs of melting at that speed could raise the water levels of the earth to where Alot of land mass would be covered i assume. Anyone here know exactly how much existing land mass would be covered with mass melting off the ice caps?
Just thought id throw that in cuz the melting caps and seeing that depiction made a ding go off in my head.
