So the global warming got me thinking [Politics/Religion]
« on: January 27, 2008, 08:23:44 AM »

Not really [Politics/Religion] but just in case the thread goes that way:

Am I living in a good place or would closer to the mountains in the plains area be better? I know there are a lot of factors but this was just one of those stupid things that popped into my head.

Minnesota is full. Sorry.   Wink Grin

I should probably be nice though because we'll need a place to stay once the glaciers come. Dennis Quaid can't save us all.

Just in case you're serious. And the lack of goofy emoticons makes me think you are.

It sounds the real damage to the continental US is a 100-200 hundred years in the future. That is not to say that there aren't people seriously suffering now, northern native tribes near the north pole etc.

Both poles are changing and melting, you mess with the food chain and you get into trouble.

Soylent Green burger anyone.

Half serious, who am I kidding I am never really serious. I was just wondering to myself what the world might be like and where the best place to live will be. Just sort of question to start a somewhat edumicated and entertaining discussion.

Imagine a diaspora like the one from New Orleans occurring from every major population center throughout the US coastline.

I don't know about moving to the mountains just yet, but I'd certainly recommend a bullish position on highland real estate.

[/serious] I just watched a show the other night that touched on this topic. At one point they showed where the water would reach for 1m to 10m rise in sea levels. By "they" I mean scientists who study such things.

This may be hyperbole but I'm not sure most folks can begin to imagine the implications. It is an ominous scenario. [/serious]

I totally agree.  This is serious facking ship.  A lot of people who think about a one meter sea rise pity the poor in Bangladesh and fail to realize it will displace tens of millions of residents from US coastal areas.  And the greater the rise the more millions who will be affected.

The most logical thing I've seen lately is the idea of looking at how New Orleans was affected and its people displaced and imagine that happening over and over and over again.  Maybe sooner than later.

The projections for a while have been this won't be evident until the end of this century.  But this timing is being revisited because of the acceleration of ice melting at the poles and at Greenland is much more rapid than previously assumed.  As a scientific issue, how quickly we'll see the sea rise seems the hottest right now in the climatology field.  no pun intended.

Consulting the all-knowing almost accurate Google - seems I'm about 550ft. above sea level at my domicile.  Safe or no?

As far as staying dry,  Thumbs Up

Down the list of your worries though {see SoCM's post above}. Those people will have to go somewhere and there are a lot of them.

This book is high on my list to read. It came out last summer and I saw him on The Daily Show. Sounded very interesting.
