Wouldn't it be time to do some planning and remodeling? A nice glass bubble might give you quite a view.

I am looking in to buying some property along the future site of the California coast line. I can't touch the cost of current land along the coast. Problem is I don't know how Global Warming is going to effect earthquakes and if California falls into the ocean where the best property will be. It's all in the planning.

Arizona or Nevada would be your best bet, no earthquakes and you wont be far from the beach.


I would avoid the East Coast as that will be wiped out when the Cayman Islands drops into the ocean and sends a sodding great tidal wave eastward.

But outside that things are looking fine.

And quite a few of us think your stuff is rubbish.

Wouldn't the Himalayas be a great place, property is cheap, your money could go far and you'd have a beach front house in 50 years, whilst the rest of us are paddling around on our sofas. You'd also have some spectacular views whilst waiting for the next ice age.

I'm just wondering if we are seeing yet another "perfect storm". The earth goes through changes, but maybe due to the effects of mankind we've managed to accelerate / accentuate the process, either way something is happen and the net result could be a freckle sandwich for all concerned. Me I'm off to find a house boat in Kashmir - nice and safe there!!

Wasn't there some reshuffling at NASA's JPL a few months ago when they published a study questioning whether humans were responsible for Global Warming?

Partisan, any rise in sea level isn't going to be that significant. If it does happen, places that are basically a few inches above sea level would be at risk but the Himalayas will still be the Himalayas. Also, this is another thing that people can't really seem to prove. Temperatures are going up a bit but the sea level doesn't seem to be changing enough for anyone to be absolutely sure.

Perhaps it's a bit like the frog in boiling water... Toss him in at a boil, and he'll jump out... But if you put him in warm water and slowly bring up the temperature, he'll lounge around till he realizes he's dead.

Its a bit more complicated than that.
Sometimes I feel like we're panicking because winter's ending and summer's coming and we never lived long enough to have personally experienced the last summer (even though it's clear folks were around then and were doing fine).

In the winter of 1996/97 we had seven blizzards hit my hometown of Sioux Falls, SD, seven blizzards in one six month period, I was ten years old at the time. All of my birthdays were either outdoors sledding or indoors because it was too cold for anything other than sledding outside. Since then I have had one birthday where there was even a trace of snow on the ground and we've had only one blizzard in these parts the last 12 years. I am going to have a hard time believing anyone who says that the average global temperature is not increasing based on what I've witnessed in my own short life experiences, to quote one of my professors, "We haven't had a winter since 1997." Last winter (07/08) was the coldest winter of this decade and yet when one compares it to the historical averages it was still slightly above normal for average temperature. I remember having to wear costumes over my winter clothes for Halloween, now I see people wearing shorts and t-shirts as part of their costumes. Winters are shorter, summers longer and drier. That's just my observations living in the Midwest where the effects of any sort of climate change should be less severe, I can't imagine what it's like on one of the hundreds of inhabited islands throughout the world in danger of completely disappearing as water levels rise.
