Not as good as living in a van down by the Yellow River

Hmm...

Volume occupied by ice. Ice melts. Volume now occupied by water.

I suspect the latter volume is slightly larger than the former due to molecules being huddled together to stay warm in ice.

I do not suspect the difference in volume says "oh fark" for coastal areas.

Cept for Greenland, Antarctica and glaciers, which are NOT floating.

I want to live on Vancouver island I'm stuck in this shiathole Toronto.I bet it was really nice here in the 1940s but now it's just a toilet where the world comes to take a shiat.

Since I live on the east coast I'm just a tiny bit more worried about hurricanes than rising water anyway.

Yeah, that's why i just said glaciers.  There's a bunch worldwide, but I don't know how much they affect the oceans, as compared to Greenland and antartica.

99% of land ice on Greenland and Antarctica, but the immediate sea level rise caused by melting glaciers will effect population masses in Alaska years before the other two.

Glaciers have been melting for thousands of years..... it's called the end of the ice age. Yet, only 1000 years ago vikings grew wheat in Greenland..... but now it is too cold there to grow any cash crop.  Climate is cyclical people.

Fresh water is less dense than salt water. Sea ice is fresh water...

Ice has a high albedo. Sea water doesn't. Thermal expansion occurs when things heat up...

Why would it have an immediate effect on Alaska?  I mean, If it melted in a day, i could see flooding, but this will take years, and should just drain away.

Yeah, and 1000 years ago there werent 5 billion people living in cities at sea level.  And the amount of CO2 we are pumping into the air is NOT cyclical.

Circumambulate the city of a dreamy Sabbath afternoon. Go from Corlears Hook to Coenties Slip, and from thence, by Whitehall northward. What do you see? -- Posted like silent sentinels all around the town, stand thousands upon thousands of mortal men fixed in ocean reveries. Some leaning against the spiles; some seated upon the pier-heads; some looking over the bulwarks of ships from China; some high aloft in the rigging, as if striving to get a still better seaward peep. But these are all landsmen; of week days pent up in lath and plaster -- tied to counters, nailed to benches, clinched to desks. How then is this? Are the green fields gone? What do they here?

But look! here come more crowds, pacing straight for the water, and seemingly bound for a dive. Strange! Nothing will content them but the extremest limit of the land; loitering under the shady lee of yonder warehouses will not suffice. No. They must get just as nigh the water as they possibly can without falling in. And there they stand -- miles of them -- leagues. Inlanders all, they come from lanes and alleys, streets and avenues, -- north, east, south, and west. Yet here they all unite. Tell me, does the magnetic virtue of the needles of the compasses of all those ships attract them thither?

Once more. Say, you are in the country; in some high land of lakes. Take almost any path you please, and ten to one it carries you down in a dale, and leaves you there by a pool in the stream. There is magic in it. Let the most absent- minded of men be plunged in his deepest reveries -- stand that man on his legs, set his feet a-going, and he will infallibly lead you to water, if water there be in all that region.

The bays and inlets where the glaciers calve would rise first, towns in those bays and inlets would be flooded out before the oceans experienced much of a rise.

It shows the current Arctic sea ice coverage relative to historical averages. This year has been 2 standard deviations below the 1979-2000 average, but has not yet fallen as dramatically as in 2012. These are satellite-based measurements so they only show the 2-dimensional extent, not the thickness or age of the ice.

Yeah, but it would just flow right out?  I mean, they might get more freshwater than they were used to, or marginally higher tides, but that would be a bout it, i would think.

If Al Gore's climate models are right his beach house he bought after Inconvienient Truth will be under water within his lifetime.

So eitherA) he is Full Retard and dumb enough to buy a house that will be consumed by the ocean
Or B) he doesn't believe what he has been telling you to beleive.

"I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. This was the moment - this was the time - when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves, and our highest ideals." B.H. Obama 6-3-08

The absolute best thing in life is getting pussy on the beach. I have done it twice. Once with the wife before we were married.  We were camping with some friends and they went at it and we went at it.  No swapping but we watched each others stuff.  The other time was with an ex.  A 100 lb, 20 year old Vietnamese chick.  Bent her over on a nude beach in CA and tore that shiat up.

Forgive me if I shared too much I just had my second 24 oz hops of wrath.
