The sea could rise 10' from today's level and I'd still be OK in my home. Closer to the water!!



This is where we are today:

If the sea does rise 10' from today, we'll all be dead anyway. It would be too hot to live on this planet.

Except for the CCP. They'll figure it out.

The projection is that MSL could rise 1 meter by 2100.  That would be bad, but it's 3 feet, more or less.

If we REALLY get on this problem and reduce CO2 emissions by spending trillions of dollars a year, it might only rise 2.95 feet.

The sea would have to rise 2500 feet before it can get me. On the plus side, Lake Mead would be full again.

If you set a goal, and fail to meet it, you failed to meet it.  We're not even going to get close to these goals.

The notion it is at all rational to talk about cutting emissions in half by 2030 should just stop being part of any conversation.  We should consider what is going to happen as a result and how to mitigate that.

I'd like to lose 30 pounds.  If I tried and lost 10, it would be a something.  We're looking at maybe losing a pound, at best.

It really is that bad, despite the trillions we likely will throw at the problem.
I dunno doesn't sound like much of anything to me. Going on and on about the minutia is nice if we are making a serious run at the thing, but we aren't, so "facing facts" and the like are more buzzwords than anything substantial.

I tried to explain this several times.  Facing facts means "We're not going to reduce CO2 levels sufficiently, so we'd better start thinking about how to manage what is likely to happen."

Instead of spending trillions on CO2 reductions which would be inadequate, maybe we should consider spending SOME of that one ways to manage a higher MSL and hotter temperatures.

Or, we should get serious about other methods for managing this, like salting the oceans with iron.

I mean, all those things are on the table. I do think people are hoping for some magical fix (like a pill for weight loss) rather than accepting the reality of the situation.

Doubtful. The coastal folk will finally have a chance to use their webbed hands and feet.
