Im only familiar with my local topography, so its limited to my area. But that map would need to show more of eastern New England underwater, if it did rise by 244 ft. Likely the seas would reach inland as far as Worcester (central mass) in lowland areas. Creating many islands and coves out of the valleys and the rolling hills/highlands. CT river, Black stone, Charles, Merrimack and other larger river valleys. Would likely submerge deep inland, well past cities like Haverhill, Lawrence, Lowell, Watertown Waltham, Harford and Springfield. These river beds, are only a few dozen feet above sea level, at locations of all the cities. Leaving them well below projected surface levels. I mean the Hudson river has tidal, all the way to Troy, yet is still green? Northeast would be much different. Im sure its not the only region that has this mis-rep.

This wouldn't happen , melting ice isn't gonna cause the sea level to rise you can test this out with a cup of water and a couple of ice cubes , the ice is gonna cause the water to go up when you first put it in of course but when it melts it isn't gonna make the water rise up even more that doesn't make any sense , I have no time to bicker back and forth with anyone if you want to see for your self test it out , thank you for reading.

Global warming myth. Sea levels have been rising for 10 thousand years. If you believe in global warming, don't go on holiday if you use a plane, don't buy products that need to be imported, don't eat meat, don't eat food unless it has been grown locally. Don't keep buying new cloths unless the old cloths are warn out, don't keep changing your car every other year. Don't have more than two children. Too many people on the planet. 90% of all ice is in the Antarctic which is increasing in size by 8" per year. We are damaging the environment and we are polluting the planet but CO2 food for plants and make up only 0.04% of the atmosphere. 1000 years ago the forests of Canada grew 100 miles further north than they do today.

This won't happen the world is heating up and that's why the ice caps are melting so what happens to hot water it evaporates so while most people on the planet think that the world will flood I think it'll drown but not in the same way all the evaporated water will come back down as rain and cause massive catastrophic damage like mud slides flash flooding erosion and crop death think of it more as a cleaning maybe one hundred years from now it'll be raining everywhere all the time we might survive we might not but the planet will heal its self

If you put an ice cube in water and it melts, the water level dosent rise. So if all these glaciers melt I’m gonna take a solid guess that the ocean levels won’t rise.

+Sarah Espin did you miss the part where an entire gigantic continent will be inhabitable? Plus the refugees won't come all at once. Do you understand that the ocean isn't going to rise overnight? Is the sky falling? Did cavemen flip out when they discovered that the ice age was about to end? Who did they blame?

Jim Murray (6 days ago)
This what happens when you take a little bit of knowledge and try to stretch it into the truth. Instead of being inconvenient, it becomes downright wrong. Near the end of the video, they make the claim that it is the petroleum industry that is to blame for the majority of the problem. Nice try, idiots. It has been conclusively demonstrated that the livestock industry is the main culprit, but you won't find these clowns pointing that out. Why? Because that would mean that they are a part of the problem, and that is much more inconvenient than blaming Big Oil. That's right, people, if you eat any meat, dairy, or poultry, you are the biggest threat to the globe.

Roger Pointer (8 days ago)
Funny, but as frozen water (ice) melts, it LOSES volume. Additionally, Terra Firma (Earth's crust, the lithosphere) moves up and down as it floats on molten magma beneath the crust. Search "tectonic plates" and calm down and just hope we don't get a super volcanic eruption in our lifetime and freeze to death... if we survive it.

Johnny Morales (10 days ago)
The video definitely overstates the results of all the ice melting especially if it takes 5000 years as predicted. 5000 years ago none of the deltas existed. The mouths of the rivers were far upstream. Over that time as they delivered sediment loads, they pushed their deltas further and further out to sea. The modern deltas of today were built and extending seaward even as the sea level was rapidly rising as we passed the peak of the current ice age causing the ice to melt rapidly and sea levels to rise. Because delta building is an ongoing process most rivers will prevent the sea from ever penetrating as far inland as the maps indicate. Those maps are all based on current elevations. Over a period of 5000 years, elevations can change dramatically. Once the sea levels stabilize even at their very highest the rivers will once again have the advantage and start pushing their deltas seaward building new land. Also over a period of 5000 years, substantial isostatic rebound in Antarctica and Greenland 100s of meters in height will have turned that archipelagos into one large landmass. That archipelago is based on the sea levels of Antarctica currently if all the ice simply disappeared. The ice won't simply disappear all at once. In the thousands of years, it will take to melt isostatic rebound will more than keep pace with the rising sea levels anyplace where ice caps meet the sea like Antarctica and Greenland. Just how fast it occurs is easy to see in Finland. Most of that nation was far below sea-level at the peak of the current ice age just like Antarctica is presented now only then the sea levels were MUCH LOWER. Yet today despite the sea levels rising hundreds of feet since the peak of the current ice age Finland has more than 2x as much land above sea level than it did then. It's rebound was faster than the rising sea levels which actually happened much faster than 5000 years time.

UNDER THE FLAT EARTH The Garden of Eden Exist and Icebergs are made under the Flat Earth in the North Pole where the Land of The Giants are. Ice bergs in the Global warming scheme is fake, because all the icebergs are made under the Flat Earth in vast fresh waters seas according to Olaf Jansen. Icebergs are LARGE body of fresh water frozen. Could Skull Mountain be Adam's Head Gen 6:4? Holiness to live very long Elephants 100ft long 75 to 85 ft in height Turtles 20-25ft in length and 15 t0 20ft in width and 7ft in high.

luca micele silva (10 days ago)
Alex Scher yeah, no, the ice reflex’s sun rays back out to space, without them the earth would become significantly hotter, on top of that if we do still use fossil fuels then the greenhouse effect would intensify, if anything the desserts would get worse and the earth would mostly, dare I say, not be habitable

We would also have a lot more land, Antarctica, and Greenland would become more habitable
luca micele silva (10 days ago)
Aidan Murray not really, Greenland is like a bowl so would be fine *if* it wasn’t full of water, you saw what happened to Antarctica, so yeah more land but we may lose much more land then gain, on paper it looks like more but then again global warming means hotter climates, significantly hotter climates mean less hospitable land, it would be likely that areas of land now covered in ice like Greenland, Iceland and northern Canada/Scandinavia might be our only habitable places left, this on top of the fact that these areas are mostly mountains so we cannot grow much food there (granted if you put all the agricultural farms in one field they would cover most of Africa) therefore even less useful land
