Side note: I started young with this, just like with YEC. I started speaking out against YEC notions when I was only in grammar school, in the ’70s. I started speaking out against global warming (similar in many regards) in the ’80s. I’ve done more homework over the years. If I seem a bit curt a times, know that I’ve been there, done that, and answered it before, studied it over and over, tried to understand the contrary view, yet I keep coming back to reality. We live on a very stable watery planet, and it has been remarkably stable for an unimaginably long time, under many and varied conditions, with extraordinary perturbations and long-term changes. And, yes, I love my grandchildren, and theirs, and theirs too. I am doing my best to leave them something worth having. I’m quite confident that will make the most of it.

Watts Up With That?

By Andy May

This is the seventh and last post in my series on the hazards of climate change. In this post we examine the effects of climate change on glaciers and sea level rise. The first six examined the effect of humans on the environment, the effect of the growing human population, climate change and the food supply, the cost of global warming, the effect of man and climate change on extinctions, climate (or weather) related deaths, and extreme weather and climate change.

The IPCC AR5 report has the following to say about the risks of sea-level rise:

“Risks increase disproportionately as temperature increases between 1°–2°C additional warming and become high above 3°C, due to the potential for a large and irreversible sea level rise from ice sheet loss. For sustained warming greater than some threshold [Current estimates indicate that this…
