And new york city, a city of 8.4 million, would be under over 150 feet of water in most areas.And, if temperatures rise by 18 F (10 C), the continent is doomed to be "virtually ice-free." Should the continent lose all of its ice, global sea levels will rise by nearly 200 feet (58 m)
Ohhhh Scary. "Doomed" note the word doomed above. What's your fascination with ice? You would rather have a useless continent covered with ice than covered with green plants? I think your priorities are nuts.
Lake Ontario's altitude is 257 ft above present sea level therefore in the worst case Toronto is OK and everything around lake Ontario. We're OK, don't worry about us!
Apparently, the genius of that community organizer is as valuable as the Nobel prize for Drone mass murder!
"if average temperatures rise 7.2 degrees F (4 degrees C) above pre-industrial levels for any sustained period of time, much of the ice in West Antarctica will crumble, resulting in 21 feet (6.5 meters) of global sea-level rise; that amount of rise would devastate coastal cities like New York, Tokyo and London AND MARTHA'S VINEYARD ISLAND PRIVATE COMPOUNDS

jUST call it global warming again
Folks, I got some really bad news for all of you. You're screwed! Read facebook.com/ron.mccune.3 and see why in about 15 years the North pole will be completely melted and about 5-10 years after that the South Pole will be completely melted as will all the Earth's glaciers and snow covered mountains. The Earth will have no more winters as insects enjoy a longer lifespan and make your lives 1000% more miserable. Global warming caused the weakest chain in the Earth's ice systems, permafrost, to for some odd reason start to melt rapidly in the early 1960's. China industrial growth, Putin's KGB minded tricks to increase warmer climates over Russia through his inaction on controlling fires in the permafrost areas and polluting the waters of Russia so that weather patterns in Russia were worsened and Putin and Russia's yearly flyover of Russia's five time zones massive amounts of military planes and equipment which yearly adds a blanket of hot air over Russia and that part of the world. Since the 1960's melted permafrost water, which now is warmer than ice, has been draining into the Arctic Ocean where it has been melting the ice in the North Pole. As that now warmer waters from the North pole circulated around the world it warmed the oceans and worse of all the waters around the South pole where it has been melting water ever since. That's how global warming started! Read facebook.com/ron.mccune.3 to see how global warming started and how to end it! But continuing as the Earth progresses from today's climate pattern of more water in the oceans creating more severe storms now and for a while in the oceans and in certain areas of the Earth most of the Earth will see drier, hotter weather with few clouds. What clouds are to be seen won't produce rain as the Earth swelters in heat from that gigantic ball of fire miles away called the Sun which is shooting hot deadly rays and pouring heat onto our planet! Fortunately since the beginning of life on Earth nature had created the one and only thing that could shield the planet from these deadly hot Sun rays and that was clouds. Clouds are Earth's umbrella from the Sun. Without clouds the Sun will bake all live from the surface of the planet. Without clouds there would be no water. Clouds are the only thing on Earth that creates water. No clouds, no life! In about 25-35 years all of you on Earth will be witnessing the end of civilization as we know it as the Sun will begin it's unchallenged task of baking the life off the face of Earth, a planet that no longer produces clouds or rain. I will say your only chance for survival is to now and especially in about 10 years to numerous times shoot somehow massive amounts of volcano ash into the sky from numerous spots on the Earth to help Earth to provide the only other thing besides clouds that can can shield the Earth from the hot rays of the Sun! Or you can all go live underground and hide from the Sun. But your water will evaporate so cover it all up! Find underground rivers! but your biggest problem will be food! There will be no way to feed everyone because you won't be able to farm anymore! That is the future all of you face in about 20 years!Antarctica could be completely ice-free one day if we allow climate change to continue unabated.

How about that a world with ice caps during interglacials is a world with a relatively balanced and stable climate that humans can live in?
The ice caps are the air conditioners of the planet.
And you don't have to worry about 10 C warming, because civilization will end with 3 C - 4 C warming.
----Yes. The climate suddenly reversed after the record 1997-98 ENSO. The last 20 years has been called a "hiatus", a pause or slowdown in the forecasts. The implication being that the interrupted rise that began in 1975 will continue. So far it hasn't, but who knows what Earth's natural variability has in store.

-----------------------Actually, Ed.. You don't have to be a billionaire to own coastal properties that the climate forecasts of a rapidly rising ocean would destroy. The great news is it won't happen anytime soon.
"This cataclysmic melting will not occur in our lifetimes; the full effects would likely not be seen for roughly 150,000 years, Andrew Shepherd, a climatologist from the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom, who was not involved in the study, told the Daily Mail. "
------------""Antarctica is basically our ultimate heritage from an earlier time in Earth's history. It's been around for roughly 34 million years,"
Yes, 33 million years ago the Antarctic ice sheet began to form. What's missing is the fact that at that time atmospheric CO2 was more than double what it is today and began to drop. The late Eocene climate was mild. There was no catastrophic change in the climate. Life on land was lush and the marine carbonate plankton flourished even though the pH was lower than today. The future here will not be what climate models forecast. The geological and geochemical evidence from the past is a preview.
-------------------Science data matters. I teach a course in climate science in the OLLI program at Furman U.
The article title uses the word "could". Here's the current data for the Antarctic Ice Extent, well above the 30 year 1981 to 2010 average-https://i2.wp.com/nsidc.org/data/seaice_index/images/daily_images/S_timeseries.png?ssl=1
------Has anyone ever thought that the present trend of posibive temperature feedback could suddely reverse? thoughts?
