Human infrastructure generally has a lifetime of 50 years or so. That set's the time scale. The solution to any sea level rise beyond that timescale is; "Move ... inland."

Easy to say. Much harder to enact. Timing is crucial. And planning. We're not very good at either, especially when we don't know exactly how fast the sea will rise, nor how intense storm surges will get and how quickly...

Lol. It'll be enacted when reality grabs people by the hair and drags them kicking and screaming into the future.

The State of Sea Level Rise (2019)

An impressive combination of fragments of talks about SLR.

Final minute: We may have to do something about this climate change!

Sea Level Rising exponentially

Five years ago I posted the video: “Can global sea level rise 7 meters by 2070?”; based on the ongoing 7 to 10 year doubling rates of ice melt from Greenland and Antarctica this magnitude of sea level rise is indeed very possible. Now, 5 years later, Greenland lost a record 12.5 billion tons of ice in one day (last Thursday), and a record 217 billion tons in July alone. With a dreaded Arctic Blue-Ocean Event (BOE) likely by 2022 or sooner, there will be complete September sea-ice loss and very large warming spikes, further exposing Greenland to accelerated, crippling ice loss

Paul on SLR, latest.

I continue to expand upon my argument that global sea level will rise 7 meters by 2070, as I originally discussed over 5 years ago in a video. An Arctic Blue-Ocean Event (BOE) that is very likely by 2022 will cause very large Arctic warming. With no sea-ice left to melt, we lose our Arctic “refrigerator” and all that previous “latent heat” will now be “sensible heat” jacking up temperatures. This will further expose Greenland to accelerated, catastrophic ice loss with rapid sea-level rise and abrupt increases in frequency, severity, duration of extreme weather events globally.



Exponential, now only mm a year, 7 meters by 2070, steep acceleration after first BOE, GIS exposed to extreme temperatures.
7 meters in 50 years, on average 4 inch a year but local differences and not linear so steep at the end, minor at the start, the power of the exponent.
