What happens when all the world’s ice melts and runs into the polluted bucket of the sea.
Plan now for your beachfront cottage. In 135 degree heat. With no water. On the desert’s edge.
But it will be a dry heat. Like the inside of a gas oven . . .

Some who have dared to speculate on a timeline have given themselves plenty of space for error in their predictions–one estimate says anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000 years. Whatever the time frame, anthropogenic climate change is a fact–humans are speeding up this process. Big time.
Each of the maps vary somewhat in amount of sea level rise after the last ice cap is gone. The USGS has estimated that the total rise would be about 265′. Maps show anything over 240 or so feet, up to what the USGS calculates as the maximum, as “all the world’s ice sheets” not portraying any sea level rise higher than what is possible.
