First, mostly it struck me that "it" thot "it" represented 97% of the people. Second, 400 cubic kilometers of melted ice, rising to 1000 cubic kilometers & maybe to 10,000 cubic kilometers per year, didn't phase "4 oil pans".... nary at all.
10,000 cubic kilometers represent an ice cube melt, 70,000 feet long, by 70,000 feet wide, by 70,000 feet high. THAT occurrence is what we must avoid.
