Keep telling your self that maybe some day even you will believe it.The truth is you wouldn't know the truth if it slapped you on the point above your shoulders.So do tell all the school you will be teaching at. I'm sure they will be interrested in your fine work here.

So you claim but yet the math still says you screwed it up. You missed the fact that when ice melts and becomes water that the volume changes. The mass remains the same but the volume is different. Then you still missed that shore line gradient changes the volume numbers for the oceans. Then again you were not the only one who missed that and when I started looking it was something I had to dig for.
Leaving out half of the numbers involved will mean that you will get it wrong. Then again you have a history of being wrong.
Nope. All dealt with in the previous thread.

Maths hasn't changed in the meantime.

You're still wrong.

Yes, you are. You go back and check for yourself. Again.

Yes, you are lacking in education.

I tell you all this to help you.

Posting a wrong answer over and over will not make it any more right than if you posted two plus two equals five.

The fact is that the math didn't change and you still have the wrong answer.

Anybody who knows maths can check that for themselves.

What might also give them a clue is that it is a scientifically accepted fact that there is enough ice on Greenland to cause several metres of sea level rise, and that fossil beaches exist several metres above present see level, making it an observational fact that there is enough ice to cause significant sea level rise.

Why not simplify things and post a link to the subject?
Why are ice sheets important?

Ice sheets contain enormous quantities of frozen water. If the Greenland Ice Sheet melted, scientists estimate that sea level would rise about 6 meters (20 feet). If the Antarctic Ice Sheet melted, sea level would rise by about 60 meters (200 feet).

Then all you have to do, is tell us 'how long' it will take before sea level rise causes any significant harm.

The Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets also influence weather and climate. Large high-altitude plateaus on the ice caps alter storm tracks and create cold downslope winds close to the ice surface.

In addition, the layers of ice blanketing Greenland and Antarctica contain a unique record of Earth’s climate history.
Has climate change started to affect Earth's ice sheets?

The mass of ice in the Greenland Ice Sheet has begun to decline. From 1979 to 2006, summer melt on the ice sheet increased by 30 percent, reaching a new record in 2007. At higher elevations, an increase in winter snow accumulation has partially offset the melt. However, the decline continues to outpace accumulation because warmer temperatures have led to increased melt and faster glacier movement at the island's edges.

http://nsidc.org/cryosphere/quickfacts/iceshe...

Your link shows the potential for sea level rise, and the reasons for the expectation that it's going to happen: the ice is melting.

Would you be reassured if several metres of sea level rise was going to take centuries?

Would you be bothered if it happened within decades, as you'd be dead?

The question is for those young enough to see the future, or those with empathy for future generations.

Mean, moribund old men are not the people to listen to.

It isn't going to happen within decades and probably not even centuries, but if it does, people will be ready for it.

The slowest moving creature on the planet could avoid being drowned by rising sea level, even if that creature lived for centuries.

Panicking middle aged men, behaving like teenagers, aren't the people to listen to.

Well science says the first is very likely and the latter inevitable.

The dirtling can't be ignorant there would have to be some gray matter on that point above its shoulders.

Actually I rarely if ever reply to PHD. His attention span is just way to short to be useful. As for the "green troll", he plays the part of Jerry Lewis to my Dean Martin.

If it's inevitable, the answer is to be prepared, make adjustments and adapt.

No, the answer is to cut emissions.

Thanks to people like you, we're past the point where some pretty serious consequences are inevitable.

If we simple prepare for difficulties and a disaster arrives because we've kept on emitting CO2, that's not really the answer, is it?

It is inevitable that the only answers you have are useless babble tainted with hate covered with spam cut and paste hot air. Your head can't be tested. They don't have a probe small enough to fit on top of that point above your shoulders. Have you seen your care giver today?
