Well, first rule of doing something is to figure out if it's really a problem. The road is littered with false predictions of massive ocean rises. They keep retracting them.
Records and research show that sea level has been steadily rising at a rate of 0.04 to 0.1 inches per year since 1900.
Let's figure out when it hits 1ft or 2......there'll be plenty of time.
This just seems to be the Pascal's Wager of our time.
It's interesting in debates like this we can't even determine what is fact.
Without facts there can be no figuring out if it's really a problem.
Great reference to Pascal's Wager! http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/pascal-wager/
