Tragic Irony

That we may very well have advanced enough in our knowledge of science to learn about climatic change and how it occurs just in time to know of witness the disaster we sat on our asses not preventing.

Projecting forward in time, the implication is that our future will also see 4-6 m of sea level rise, and that -- given the recent evidence for accelerated flow of both Greenland and Antarctic glaciers -- this may occur much faster than we expect. In the model simulations, Greenland may already be warmer in 2100 than it was at the height of the ... Last InterGlacial (LIG) period, about 125,000 years ago.

As is said over at KOS that is 13 to 19 feet of sea level rise.

Good bye Florida. Tough deal Manhatten.
