How long until Canal Street is under water? A very, very long time. Even if the entire Greenland ice sheet melts.
Canal Street is very valuable property, and thanks to the tremendous GDP that CO2 emission has allowed us to produce, we have a lot of resources to protect it against flooding and any other negative side-effects of industry.
The streets that will be underwater are the streets of poor nations that haven't produced much GDP or CO2.
"The canary has died." Brilliant!
how long before the republicans use this to tout the benefits of global warming? Now trans-arctic shipping routes will be available! They will be able to grow pineapples in Alaska!
So . . . what's the coal mine? Earth? 'Cause that's gonna be tricky.
@3, assuming you aren't being ironic, that's already been happening. There's been a lot of posturing over this past summer about who "owns" the Arctic, since it's looking to soon be a major shipping route and since all the oil and other resources under the Arctic seafloor will soon be accessible...
Are you kidding? Think of the selling points for this "new location":
- On-the-water view
- Easily accessible yacht moorage
- No more panhandlers loitering outside your building
- On-site Aquarium
It's all double-plus good!
Just ask the waterfront millionaire property owners along the Gulf Coast of Texas ... their homes that used to be 200 feet from the beach are now below high tide ...
Global Warming is NOW.
(p.s. I own waterfront property in Fremont ... well, maybe around 2150)
@7 is erosion really climate change related? wasn't this just happening all the time and the residents just ignoring it until it was too late? or is it speeding up now?
It's speeding up. Especially in the Gulf Coast. Just like the coral damage there.
The global warming model is flawed!
