Prognostication: Global Seas Could Maybe Possibly Rise By 4 Feet By 2100

This won’t happen if you stop eating meat, stay home and only use solar power, only flush once a day, and give up your money and freedom to Government, you know

Climate crisis: Sea level ‘on course to rise by one metre by 2100’ if global emissions targets are missed

Sea levels could rise by more than one metre by the year 2100 and 5m by 2300 if global emissions targets are not achieved, according to a study.

Scientists at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore modelled projections from over 100 international experts for the global average sea level changes based on two climate scenarios.

In the low emissions scenario, in which global warming is limited to 2C above pre-industrial levels, experts estimate a rise of 0.5m by 2100 and 0.5m to 2m by 2300.

That’s 1.6 feet by 2100, despite sea rise being exactly average, 7-8 inches, over the 20th Century, and not accelerating at all so far in the 21st. Oh, and the temps not even rising by 1C over the last 170 years, since the end of the Little Ice Age.

In a high emissions scenario where global warming rises by 4.5C, the estimates surged between 0.6m and 1.3m by 2100 and 1.7m to 5.6m by 2300.

The study, which was published in science journal Nature, notes that melting ice shelves in the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets are the “largest potential contributors” to global mean sea level rise, as the biggest reservoirs of land-based ice on earth.

Of course, the high emission scenario is what all the articles yapping about this are pushing in their headlines.

It adds: “The multimeter global mean sea level rise (GMSL) rise projected by some experts… would expose up to hundreds of millions of people to coastal flooding and devastate coastal ecosystems.

“However, the expert projections also clearly illustrate the potential for evading such large GMSL rise through successful reduction of emissions.”

See? If you are made to cooperate things will only get slightly bad, not really bad. BTW, are there ever any penalties for scientists and such making prognostications that never materalize?

      Why, Ignoramus? The seas haven’t risen even an inch in the last 500 years.

      Excellent article. Just using some logic removes ignorance behind much of the so called scientific gobblygook that is used to confused people who don’t want to think.

      Assuming that’s actually true, which (like you?) i don’t :wink: ~

      Cold reality check: I doubt many currently alive are much bothered what happens in 2100, much less 2300,
      just human nature. :twisted:
