No thanks. Why don't we just sit around and do nothing and hope for the best.
That sounds like a great idea, instead of spending money we would borrow from the Chinese to fix a problem that the Chinese will flat out ignore because they understand math.

Yes, you are a mathematical idiot if you think a quarter of a square mile is significant.
I would if my house was on it. A further 15-25 cm of sea level rise is expected by 2050. When do the loses become significant?

How is it "expected"?

Let's take that 25 cm rise in sea level would result in how many square miles of shoreline lost. Come on! Try the math and I'll grade your result!

You don't think the Navy pays attention to sea level being affected by the tides?

BTW, ever hear of a Spring Tide?
I know they do:

He does not own a mansion of the beach in Hawaii. He rented when he visited.

He's having one built.

Although Hawaii has laws meant to preserve disappearing shorelines, beachfront property owners have been able to bypass them. That’s what happened at an expansive coastal estate officials say the Obamas will live in.

Agreed, so we have to assume change and prepare for it, not hide our heads in the sand and wish for the best.
How do you suggest we prepare for the next glacial cycle?

If is not man made I think we'll adapt just fine since it will happen slowly, over many generations. Canadians and Scandinavians may have to move eventually but there will be plenty of new land to move to.

Hmmm.. so we will adapt to a 2 1/2 mile thick sheet of ice over all of Canada and significant portions of the US, Asia and Europe which displaces 250 million people?

I guess I don't understand the basics. What is the relationship between magnetic poles and ocean currents?
Conveyer Belt system for the ocean...


And then the poles flipping causes temperature changes as well

Unless technology allows us control of planetary temperatures, maybe space-based solar collectors. Who knows what technology will be available in a few hundred years, if we don't kill ourselves off and make the issue moot.

I think you are the victim of a hoax, I don't think this 'scientist' or the web site are legit.

I think you have been watching too much science fiction.

We probably won't kill ourselves

H2O is good too, unless it is a storm surge aimed at your house. CO2 is vital but if that was all you had to breath you'd be dead.




Extremes are cute, but using them as a talking point is dumb. CO2 in our atmosphere is a trace element
Such a bitter person you are. :itsok:



He's pointing out your logical fallacy. If sea level rise was a problem these rich people wouldn't be buying coastal properties.

I'm not worried about the rich surviving. Farmers in Bangladesh or Louisiana living a few feet above sea level, them I worry about.




The rich never are. Funny how in order for them to be able to enjoy lives of luxury the poor and the middle class are forced to live lives of misery..

Interesting.
