Missed the first few messages but if youre actually debating the concept of 
flooding from global warming remember general chemistry.
Put your ice water in an accurate beaker and then melt it and measure its 
volume again. Warm water has a higher volume than cold and it is not so much 
the melting of the ice that will be a problem but the several degree change 
in water temperature resulting in a higher volume, hence flooding! Multiply 
your beaker by several hundred billion and that should give a slighy estimate 
of  what were facing.

at 25 degrees c water density is .9970g/ml, at 30 degrees c it is .9956g/ml

d=m/v remember 
higher temp = lower density which means higher volume (the mass isnt changing)
