    So do people like him in Florida have it coming for not fighting against their cities becoming the new Atlantis?
    End of the Century...who cares? No one posting here today will be around then.

    1. That's just by the end of the century, meaning the process will be continuing the whole time and begin impacting people well before then.

    2. If you don't care just because you'll be dead by then, you don't care about the generations immediately after us?

    1. Sand erosion is today's problem. I expect it to be ongoing. Maybe people will finally begin moving away from the beach so that I can see the ocean from the road again.

    2. Pretty much.

    Have it coming??? Are you really that cold, that you believe people involved in natural disasters deserve what they get? That's disgusting.

    This might be more clear:

    The map is pretty small....does that show the ocean flooding the rocky mountains?

    Point taken. How about this:

    People like Rick Scott and others who don't believe in global warming but live in the most vulnerable state in the US karmically have it coming.

    Whether sea levels rise or not, and they have done so repeatedly over the course of earth's history, and whether one ascribes the current situation as man-made, mostly man-made, or natural does not matter. People who disagree with your personal opinion do not "have it coming". That kind of arrogance is astounding.

    If I were Noah, and God told me to build an ark before he made it rain, and I ignored him and went about my business, I'd have it coming.

    Wow. I thought you were displaying astounding arrogance when you opined that anyone who disagreed with you had it coming ... and that was before you implied that god spoke to you, just like he spoke to Noah!! At this point my is gone, replaced by !!!
