    Could be worse, he could be sitting at the SOUTH pole!

    I predict that the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets will melt
    before the year 2100. The oceans will rise by many meters (yards). I’m 66, I won’t live to see it.

    Have to disagree, at the South Pole dirt underlies the melting ice.

    Line from an old Bill Cosby skit, “How long can you tread water?”

    It will only be when land ice slides off into the water then you will start seeing sudden rises in ocean levels. It could happen from Greenland by a few feet if there is a sudden rush of melting ice into the Atlantic. A release of ammonia hydrides into vapor would boost the warming considerably and quickly.

    Millions of Years ago the majority of North America was under water.

    Millions of Years ago, from the New England States to Indiana was one large Glacier.

    Since therw was zero industry millions of years ago, what cause the North American Glacier to melt?

    In the mid 1970’s it was bitter cold, and the experts predicted another Ice Age

    The ice caps are increasing in size. And have been for a few years running. We are going into another cooling cycle.

    Who needs scientist’s who specialize in earth and its atmosphere when you can learn “all you need to know” from your fellow poster.

    Bull. There were a few moronic magazine articles that were the usual airhead science reporting we have come to expect from the media. It was NOT bitter cold, and most scientists thought the ice age predictions were BS. Don’t believe everything people tell you just because it conforms to your beliefs.

    We’ve been through all this time and time and time again, and it never makes an impression. I say we ignore the people who can’t manage any new information and get on with dealing with the problem.

    But finance still rules the universe. Even when its underwater.

    Of course we’ve learned a lot since then, you realize.

    Ice caps increasing in size? Hmmmm… Not according to what I’ve read.

    “We’ve been through all this time and time and time again, and it never makes an impression”

    Yes. Agreed. The ‘debate’ about are we causing global warming and the ‘debate’ about what can we do to stop it . . . are over.

    The debate – henceforth – is: “What must human civilization do, to adapt and survive, in this new, more hostile climate?”

    NY and NJ get all of the press.
    But Rodanthe, NC is accessible now by ferry or 4WD at low tide.
    This clip shows how the fire dept gets patients to the ambulance to get on the ferry.
