Come on sheeple, it's an obviously biased, junk science report generated by the "National Wildlife Federation". They have no clue what will happen tomorrow, much less in 100 years. The problem I have is that the Daily Press reports this tripe as if it were actual "science". Reporting worthy of the National Inquirer.....

Thats better...

This forum is a perfect example of how poor our education system is. First, much of the ice on the polar ice caps is on land. IF (and that is a big if) it melts, the sea level WILL rise. Those are unquestionable facts. As to global warming, only time will tell. I'd say if you are 100% positive your opinion is correct (for or against the reality of global warming) you are probably wrong.
Mark, you are so right about the questionable education of the posters in this forum. But these days we celebrate the uneducated over the educated. Heck,we elected Bush not because he was smart but because we wanted to drink beer with him. Besides, why confuse an important issue with facts!

Once again people - only the North Pole is over water. The South Pole is over land as well as the ice cap over Greenland. Don't you remember from elementary school that Antartica is it's own continent? Of course you don't remember, you were too busy picking your nose.

I'd rather see it turn to a swamp instead of the ghetto is has become. Thanks Jessie & Joe!

Funny how lots of people believe stories in a book about parting of the seas, turning rods into snakes, burning bushes and immaculate conception but choose to ignore the warnings that are right in front of them.

It doesnt surprise me that the area will soon return to swamp land-half of it stinks like swamp gas now.

So how many of you who argue about whether or not not the Peninsula become a swamp in 100 years feel about plans by the cruise line industry to build a ship terminal near Mayport Village, Florida!?

Funny, but when considering other global events such as plate tectonics, multiple ice ages, and Milankovitch cycles - a few inches of seal level rise is not that big of a deal.
For some strange reason I believe Earth and her numerous inhabitants will be here for quite some time...
That's a good point. Whether Global Warming is real, man made, or just so much hype is arguable. If it is real either we adapt or we perish.
