Whoa. That’s some heavy-duty non-scientific speculation there, Charles. Anthropogenic Global Warming and subsequent catastrophe will be triggered by a political party in the U.S.? The GOP has that power? Awesome.
Charles, if all the icebergs and sea ice melted, sea levels would remain the same due to displacement, so they don’t count. Since water freezes and melts at 32 degrees Foster, polar temps would need to exceed that point and stay there for thousands of years before enough land ice runoff trickled into the oceans and put Culver City under water. If that happens, most habitable regions of the globe will turn into Papa John’s Pizza ovens with no delivery available… hundreds of years from now. Maybe.
Kind of a long shot there, Charles, since Mr. Sun appears to be in a cooling phase, and he’s the one truly responsible for global climate change, along with the GOP.
But there’s another factor involved. Plate tectonics cause land masses to rise, sink, bend, warp, bulge, tilt and shift. Magma is plastic and has nothing to do with AGW, yet it contributes to the rise and fall of sea levels. Another cause of flooding is coastal erosion, much like what we’re witnessing in real time in Charles Johnson’s brain function. Others have noted the erosion as well:

And so it goes. Charles, you’re a mess.
