Probably true, but that is over the course of a hundred years. It's more like a frog sitting in a pot that is slowly getting warmer than tossing a frog into boiling water.

Nobody is going to war because of global warming. People affected by land loss will not drown, but slowly migrate over time. Heck, most people can probably live out the rest of their lives where they are, with their descendants planning for a future of higher ocean levels.
