I suppose there is that, I`ve never been to Europe so I can`t make a judgement on how much farmland is lost there.

In America, we`d mostly lose cities as the vast majority of our agricultural land is not adjacent to a coast.

And with advances in farming technologies and GMOs, the farmland lost won`t force us into starvation.

JadesDitoyr: Just most of us since plenty of that flooded land will be farmland.

Mind you these are a bit comical in nature. I do believe these were based on a 160ft rise . That`s probably assuming we have no ice anywhere. I mean this is taken to the extreme is all I`m saying. Still we should considering doing something to slow down AGW

Yay! View the pictures listening to that, much more entertaining.

We`re talking, what - 216 feet? I get it - that is a great deal of land lost, but we are nowhere near needing all of the land on Earth yet. I doubt we ever will.

Over generations, people will be moving further and further away from the coast as the coast moves closer and closer to them. This is an adapt and overcome thing, not a "We`re all dead" thing.

@jaysingrimm: I was being sarcastic, eh? :-) That "factual graph" is a joke, but those who created & posted it believe it to be true! Including the "straight-up black line" part! They honestly believe it!

The entire thing is bogus, of course, especially the long, straight "decline" in temperature, which is from Mann`s "Hockey Stick"!

Sorry about that...that`s ok tho.

I was just pointing out some flaws with the earlier graph. That black predictive line (added to a graph based off a questionable paper) seems to magically shoot straight up from one point of data, completely ignoring the red line that is never terribly straight, but does slope upwards rather significantly the past 100 years...

"Not going to happen, at least not in our lifetimes."

May you live a very long time.

over the last 100 years it rose by about 8 inches. Do you ever remember your grandparents cry about how much the sea level rise effected their lives?

Going with a more accurate 12 inch increase over the next hundred years, I doubt we will notice the difference either.

Yeah- because you lot of numpties are far, far wiser than the scientists who have been running around like they had combustible trousers for ages.

And from another critic...

"It seems that their knowledge of the papers by Mann et al is only indirect - from what they may have read in blogs - and that they actually did not read the papers themselves. They test and criticize a statistical method which, to my knowledge, has not been used for climate reconstructions, and in contrasts they barely mention the methods that are indeed used. If they had analyzed the latter methods, climatologist would have benefited much more strongly from this study."(link)

Not that I would trust anything from them anyhow..

"My discussion of McShane and Wyner is divided into two parts. First, I’ll look at the opening background sections. Here we’ll see that the authors have framed the issue in surprisingly political terms, citing a number of popular references not normally found in serious peer-reviewed literature. Similarly, the review of the “scientific literature” relies inordinately on grey literature...Even worse, that review contains numerous substantive errors, some of which appear to have been introduced by a failure to consult cited sources directly, notably in a discussion of a key quote from Edward Wegman himself."

whan you look at the Maldives you can realy see how water level are unchanged. if it dose happen they would be the frist to know. seeing hoe they are 6 in above sea level.

From 2010: Look at that line! The science is settled, you cannot possibly argue with that!

What heresy! The -Clicky- picture suggests there were previous "warm periods"? Blasphemy! It has NEVER been this hot in all history! AGW Theory says so! ALL temperature change is caused by humans, not "the environment" period!

Right now? The heat is "hiding in the ocean depths"...

You guys think I`m making that stuff up? LOLZ! Nope! It`s doctrine. Plain fact.

"By 2100, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicts a sea level rise between 1.7 and 3.2 feet"
Yes, so it`s amusing to see what it would look like if "all the ice" on Earth melted? Even the highest predictions don`t suggest it will ever happen. Not in 300 years anyhow.

BUT the "scaremongers" trot that puppy out regularly! :-|
