“Oceans levels rising……..Phtttt!!!”
“C’Maahhhn!!!” “Whaddayatalkinabout??” Fuggedaboudit!!"
“I seen da ocean come in, I seen da ocean go out! It’s done it forevah!!!
“So maybe da ocean comes in a few more inches dan it yoosed to – big deal!!”
“It’ll probably go away by next April……like magic!!”
Conservative: if you had shown me verifiable proof, we could have avoided this.
Missing the oil slicks and tar balls that tend to wash up from time to time.
Maybe I’ll have beach front property in Indiana.
So buy cheap oceanfront property on Everest… win-win!
128 million people (~40% of the population) live along the US coasts. While not all areas of the coasts will be equally affected by rising sea waters, there are still a lot of people who will be moving — farther inland. A lot of businesses disrupted; a lot of ‘infrastructure’ destroyed. And that will affect everyone else.
Hope the life guard is a big fan of Jimmy Buffett—You got fins to the left, fins to the right…….and you are the only meal in town (okay a little literary licensing).
By one estimate I saw, 80% of ALL cities WORLDWIDE are on water, and therefore have some degree of vulnerability to significant ocean rise. Just think of all the cities on the ocean or nearby, ranging from Boston (my town) to London to Sydney to Sao Paulo to Singapore to Venice to Tel Aviv…
So as people need more energy sources we come up with new ways to provide it. Aside from visual aesthetically appeal, how can wind farms be worse for the future than nuclear power plants? Remember that these power sources are all accidents waiting to happen…uummm like …these that already did…
“Serious nuclear power plant accidents include the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster (2011), the Chernobyl disaster (1986), the Three Mile Island accident (1979), and the SL-1 accident (1961).”
113 in Seattle? Unprecedented…
If energy companies would just put in the effort, they could make wind farms in all sorts of ways. There are already non-bladed options out there.
forgot the oil slick on the water
Cute. Almost sort of cartoon-accurate. Though it’s probably too late to avoid the lower scene… though it might be possible, using techniques such as the top scene, to push it into the future a little further and … who knows, maybe the horse will learn to sing…
The US government should stop subsidizing the oil companies.
Anybody remember reading the short sci-fi story The Great Nebraska Sea?
I’ll worry when Al Gore sells his oceanside property.
According to the “experts” NYC is ankle deep right now and Miami is gone.
Besides, the liberal NIMBY’s refuse to allow offshore wind farms…where they can see them.
You left out the smog, oil slick, and dead sea life from the bottom one.
Well sell anything in florida
Well, the fossil fuel view is still nicer. And cooler.
That’s about a two meter rise in the lower panel. So goodbye Greenland ice cap. Also goodbye to all the houses behind the beach who did not want to look at a wind farm. So now the wind farm can be built with less opposition. And you will need the electricity because all the fossil fuel electric generation plants that were on the coast are now gone.
More people will die sooner from heat than from sea level rise. Although the hurricanes and heavy rainfall that will hit coastal and near-coastal areas will also generate many deaths.
And in the Mid-West, more tornadoes. There was a tornado in Europe a short time ago. They almost never get them. But “The Ministry for the Future” by Kim Stanley Robinson mentions that the global warming will cause tornadoes to occur in Europe with greater frequency. Robinson, unlike people like the ill-lit, pays attention to science.
