All this and also consider the drastic climate change we will experience
should things warm up enough to melt ice caps. Coastal flooding will be the
least of the problems.
<< Missed the first few messages but if youre actually debating the concept
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
of what were facing.
