If All the Ice Melted

This is what would happen if ALL the ice melts,
But that won't happen, not all of it, the question is how much of it.
I think I'd have water front property.

So we say goodbye to Florida, and most of Louisiana and Mississippi? Seems fair.

We might have to build a wall.

I've read more than one conspiracy theory that says The Wall(TM) is really about stopping the mass migration north that will begin in a few decades due to devastating warming along the equator. The logic went that the right actually believes in climate change MORE than the left, but has to keep it on the down low, or the left would figure out what the wall was really for.

Notice that he wants to build a wall where (according to the map) no threat exists. The map must be wrong.

History repeats itself. ~ Everybody
Those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it. ~ Winston Churchill
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. ~ Karl Marx
History doesn't repeat itself but it often rhymes. ~ Mark Twain

But the history we’re taught isn’t what happened. It’s what was recorded by the victors, and only the things
they thought were important to make them look good. And those came out of the pool of what they knew
which was piddle puddle compared to the ocean of what happened.

Quote:
“Somewhere back in our Savannah DNA, we got very good at reacting to danger when it presented itself — say a lion or tiger. However, it seems we are less capable of looking ahead to avoid danger. In other words, we are a reactive rather than proactive animal. The contemporary analogy in relation to climate change is that we are similar to the frog in a pot of hot water who does not have the sensors to recognize the increasing temperature and the fact that he should get out of the boiling pot.” Ian Tamblyn

Catastrophic flooding in Nebraska has wiped out roads, overtopped dams, and left at least a third of the
Offutt Air Force Base submerged, including part of the runway and at least 30 buildings.
Fortunately, this time the headquarters of US Strategic Command, which oversees the US nuclear arsenal,
remained unflooded. This is the same base where a tornado caused $20 million damage in 2017.

Camp Lejeune was badly damaged by Hurricane Florence in September of 2018. The massive 84,000 gallon
sewage spill and damaged buildings is expected to cost some $3.6 billion dollars,

In October, 2018, Hurricane Michael devastated Tyndall Air Force Base, causing billions of dollars in damage.

Warming of the air and Oceans has caused a shift in the Jet Stream which may increase the probability of
Bomb Cyclones like hit Colorado this winter with 100 mph winds and torrential rain or 52 inches of snow.

In 2019 the ocean temperature off northern CA running 5 degrees warmer in March. Last time it caused
toxic blooms, closing down fishing/crabbing for months, at a $48 million loss to just the crab industry.

Who will ever learn?
When will they ever learn?
How will they ever learn?
What will they ever learn?

They're on track killing 750,000 humans a year.

IPCC AR5 says low confidence in observed increases in number and/or intensity of tornadoes; same for magnitude and frequency of flooding; and low confidence these events can be attributed to warming. Medium confidence that tornadoes may increase in future, flooding remains low confidence in future.

Chart is here

That chart has bunches of asterisks, red & blue squares, yellow circles and abbreviations they don't explain.

Sorry! Legend is here

The whole thing is a way to summarize their report; this is the science as it stood 2014.
