Warmists: Here’s Your World Underwater

The end of the last ice age occurred roughly 21000 years ago. Serious sea rise from melting occurred starting around 15000 years ago, leveling out around 8000 years ago. They sea rise was roughly 130 meters, which equals 426 feet. Since 8k years ago, there has been an average see rise of 7 inches per century. In fact, the 20th Century saw just that. Being a Holocene warm period, it actually should have seen much more, based on the law of averages, where the cool periods would see low to negative sea rise. Yet, here’s more Warmists prognosticating more gloom and doom

Your world, underwater: Here’s what US cities will look like after global warming

Remember Waterworld, the extravagant 1995 dystopian Hollywood flop that imagined Earth after the polar ice caps melted, with humans living on what looked like floating junkyards? You might not be growing gills and webbed feet a la Kevin Costner anytime soon, but your great-great-great-great-great children might have to worry about finding dry land.

The United States Geological Survey estimates that if the ice sheets located in the Antarctic and Greenland melt as a result of climate change, sea levels could rise up to 80 meters (approx. 262 feet). Jeffrey Linn, a Seattle-based urban planner who is between jobs, decided to use some of  his spare time to show how this climate apocalypse would affect a number of cities in North America.

Here’s one of the pithy representations

Of course, after trotting out the scary graphics, we learn

“This will happen someday, but not in our lifetimes,” Linn writes, pointing out that timeline predictions vary widely, leaving any estimates with huge margins of error. So don’t worry, the human race could have anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000 years to enjoy our time on dry land.

It may well happen if this inter-glacial period continues to where glaciers end. It won’t be because of Mankind, though. Until then, Warmists will trot out their scary stories, then jump in their fossil fueled vehicles to drive a mile to the grocery store.

    As I look at the map of Los Angeles after the projected sea level rise, my first thought was, “OK, and why is this considered a bad thing?”
