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

Nah, no ice sheet. The sea level is going to drop by >100 metres thanks to some serious geo-engineering. Dubliners will get across like Moses and the children of Israel, on dry ground.

Nope, ice sheet. While the global average rises, the new conditions will lead the circulator will stall south of Europe so the current will be coming down from the Arctic. The new ice pushed down from the Arctic will fill in the crossing late every winter, and then by summer it'll be back to the water crossing.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
