Uh, hot topic, I see.

The world would look pretty good with the water rise. At over 1300 ft elevation at home and my mancave becoming beachfront property is not happening.


BTW there is areason Greenland has green as part of the name. At one time it was green.

I thought it was a marketing ploy by the vikings to make it sound more pleasant and livable than it is.

Ya, Erik the Red was pretty good:

"
Erik the Red's discovery of Greenland

It is for this reason that in the same year he sailed west and discovered a country with an inviting fjord landscape and fertile green valleys. He was extremely impressed with the new country's resources and he returned to Iceland to spread the word of "The green land".

Erik the Red clearly had great powers of persuasion because in 985 he set sail once more from the volcanic island leading a fleet of 25 ships on course for Greenland. Onboard were around 500 men and women, domestic animals and all the other elements required to create a new existence in a new country.
Of the 25 ships only 14 made it to their destination."

I believe there is still a glacier lurking just beyond the shores of Lake Michigan. After I felt that icy breeze coming off the deceptively beautiful beach today- I am sure of it.

Interesting link/tool. At 60M our house becomes ocean view instead of canyon view. At 40M it's a more distant ocean view - might not be able to see the water.

It's nice to be on a mesa.
