    Incoherent, or what?
    A very cleverly worded response that evades the issue completely, almost political in it's excellence.

    A paper on sea level rise if Greenland or Antarctica melt at a steady rate. Behind a paywall, but the main charts can be viewed. See Figure 5 - it seems to project a raise of some 15mm per year.

    ScienceDirect.com - Quaternary Science Reviews - Rapid sea-level rise

    Regional processes, often connected to steric and glacial changes, include changes in ocean circulation (Meridional Overturning Circulation [MOC]), glacial melting, local GIA, regional subsidence and others. Paleoclimate, instrumental and modeling studies show that combinations of these factors can cause relatively rapid rates of sea-level rise exceeding 3 mm yr−1 over various timescales along particular coasts.

    The person must have publicly stated that they deny climate science.
    If you're unable to name one such person, I'll accept that you're just another gullible cult follower.
    Was it not earthling who slandered the IPCC, calling them liars, by using fake articles which he even didn't read himself...

    Come on, dude, what else you wanna tell us?

    Not sure what that has to do with climate change. Are they making the islands sink?

    Unless China and the USA start to take Climate Change for real. We all better learn how to breathe under water.

    Help in this regard is begining to come from surprising quarters Mackers

    Norway will almost double carbon taxes on the oil industry in 2013 and raise cash to help developing nations protect tropical forests as part of measures to combat climate change, its draft budget showed on Monday.

    Norway would also raise the amount of cash spent to help developing nations protect tropical forests, which absorb carbon dioxide as they grow, to 3 billion crowns in 2013, up about 400 million from 2012.

    With several Arab nations announcing energy efficiency plans, an influx of interest in solar energy has developed in the Middle East over the last few years.

    Saudi Arabia recently announced plans to generate 40 GW of solar energy by 2030, and the UAE is actively seeking to become a leader in the development of renewable energies.

    To meet the demands and goals of Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries, leading business groups from across the country gathered at the 2nd Annual Solar Arabia Summit, held today in Riyadh, to network and meet prospective partners.

    Should we have taken more of an interest when Irish banks began to sell their property portfolios in 2006/7 ?

    Should we now begin to pay attention when the largest oil exportering countries begin to change their own energy supplies ??

    Future under threat: climate change and children’s health

    Climate change has been widely recognised by leading public health organisations and prestigious peer reviewed journals as the the biggest global health threat of the 21st century.

    A recently released report, commissioned by 20 of the most vulnerable countries, highlights the size of the threat: climate change is already responsible for 400,000 deaths annually, mostly from hunger and communicable disease. And our carbon-intensive energy system causes another 4.5 million deaths annually, largely due to air pollution.

    Along with the old and disadvantaged, children are particularly vulnerable to the negative effects of climate change. Children suffer around 90% of the disease burden from climate change.
