Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Do you really think it can go on for even another 20 yrs?  The other thing this policy is facilitating is massive climate degradation.  All that CO2 isn't going to stay in China.

Does anyone have a map showing what the continents will look like after a 70 meter rise in sea level from the melting of the Greenland and West Antarctic Ice Sheets?

We may be at Peak Oil, but how about Peak Coal?

I believe most of the climate models assume that the ice sheets will melt slowly, in a linear fashion.  What if that is not correct and the process is non-linear and catastrophic?  I'm about 700 ft above current sea level.  How about the rest of you?  But this is getting seriously off topic.  Perhaps it would better serve as a separate diary.
