I made this poster in response to the news today and I am not 100% happy with the wording. If the oceans do rise, it will be so slow as to be laughable. It is like being worried that the mountains are rising due to normal tectonic movements. It is much slower than the normal forces that cause people to migrate. Cities and populations move all the time and at much faster rates due to economics and politics. If people are forced to move, it will be because a factory closed, or another neighborhood becomes more fashionable, or (God forbid) a war makes a population flee.
If it will take a very long time for it to happen, then who knows if conditions will change in that amount of time.
Look at the technological, political, and demographic changes that have occurred in the US in the past 100 years. Should we fear all of those changes? Should we reverse the changes in the US because they are not what we know and perfectly understand? Climate is always changing, but no foreseeable climate change in the next 100 years looks at all bad.
Was that the research paper which talks about a particular shelf in the Eastern continent?
It has been all over the news today. What is believed to be melting is the Wast Antarctic Ice Sheet and the Thwaites glacier system.
