Warm ocean currents from the north have already carved inverse ice canyons in some Antarctic regions to as deep as 600 feet to 1000 feet. As some Ice Sheets lighten, & lift off the bedrock, even more warm water will be able to (& has already?) melt(melted?) Ice Sheets even further inland. As others have stated already, Antarctic glaciers are already becoming unstable.
It does NOT matter what you don't believe about the last 50-100 years. Antarctic Ice Sheets are beginning to lose contact with submerged bedrock. & because much of the western Antarctic are islands, the Ice Sheets have more contact already with warming oceans.

The sea level has risen 300 to 400 feet since the last end of the last ice age. A little more ice melting won't hurt anything.

hardware.slashdot.org: Hot Weather Cuts French, German Nuclear Power Output (reuters.com)


It must be summer again. The future for nuclear power doesn't seem that bright.

OTOH liquid metal batteries have to be heated to work.

It's good to hear, you're supporting property values with all your wealth inputs into the purchase of tidal lands inundated by salty sea waters & placing your future wealth gains (to support your children, grandchildren, etc) in the productions of those tidal lands. Such faith is what America & the World need...... specially in Florida, N.Y., Bangladesh, Indonesia, low elevation islands, Connecticut, Maine, N.J., etc. Your support of Miami's multi-billions mitigation outlays against ocean encrouchments on beaches & underground limestone structures is commendable. Your support for island communities that have had their islands cut in half or lands that just disappeared is wonderful. Keep supporting your projects..... & many more in the future.

Who misses Doggerland today? That happened in 300 years.

The rise and fall of the seas has happened before.

I chose my real estate purchase carefully. My wife wanted a condo right on the bay waters of San Diego. I believe in global warming. So we bought a bit above the expected sea level rise. It saved us about half a million in upfront costs and it will provide beach front property in the near future if you and others are correct in your predictions ( I highly doubt the velocity of the schedules, but . . . I'll play both sides).

Aerohead feels destroying economies to provide stasis for an environment is worthwhile. I feel the environment includes humanity and is beyond the simple expedience of minimizing CO2 emissions. There will be losses for SOMEONE! And I say this as my family is from a Pacific Island and will suffer as much as anyone. Build an economy that allows people to thrive and that will include mobility.

On point and entertaining. I usually work Sundays but the heat and your links have slashed my productivity.

We all decedent's of people who lived through hundreds of feet of sea level rise and we are doing alright.

I like your mitigation plan, living in a state with an average 5.7 THOUSAND foot elevation. Its nice to know, you'll let a thousand low-land islanders share your property..... when they lose their property.
