The north pole will have little effect, as the ice is floating in water it will weigh and displace the same as it would when molten.
But then the ice on Greenland will start melting unstoppable, and that will cause a sea level rise by several meters when completed.

The south pole is a different matter: 58 meters of sea level rise if that melts. That won't happen in a hurry, but even if it spreads out over several centuries it will be a disaster.

We might engineer for less load.There's a lot of fat to cut.

Barbie and Ken might not like it,but they'd protest at their own peril if the White House took hold of the media as it has in the past.
Real estate agents who air-condition their Great Dane inside a parked,idling, H-1 HUMMER, while they drank beer inside a restaurant might realize consequences for the first time in their lives.Women who read Harlequin Romances in an idling car for 45-minutes,with the air-conditioning blasting on an ozone action day as they eat lunch.Single-pane window glass in 2018.Non-insulated homes in 2018.Empty office towers burning lights as the business furniture sleeps.Etc..Perhaps you've witnessed abuses yourself?
So far,waste has been a privilege.It's never been a freedom or a right.

I believe that the Arctic,Greenland ice sheet,and Antarctica are good for 240-feet of sea level rise,plus continental rebound effects,then thermal expansion if we continue to warm.Sweet!

looks like the two plates displace around 4-inches/year between them.For the 1,000-mile length of the State,we'd be looking at around 25,000,000 years to bifurcate California.

I got an iPod Touch 2nd-hand for $25. It's like an iPhone without the security risks of a camera and microphone. You could download podcasts much faster than you can listen to them.

With earthquakes, the telluric current determine the location but the timing is determined by sunspots. (Sunspots are the Solar equivalent of anvil-head thunderstorms on Earth)

Concerning cities at risk... who is unable to flee from water that rises at 2mm per year ?

Leftists should be cheering sea level rise anyhow since it's those evil rich people who live on beachfront property.
