Rising Sea Levels ‘Could’ Affect 627 Million People in 2000 Years or Something

These clowns used to offer up predictions for 10 to 20 years down the road, but have repeatedly looked like idiots. So now they’re just going to claim we’ll all be under water in 2000 years. We’re supposed to take them seriously.

Hundreds of millions of people around the world are living in places that could eventually be submerged by rising sea levels triggered by unchecked climate change, new global maps suggest.

They can’t even say it will happen.

An estimated 627 million people live in these places, including about 1.9 million in Australia and many more in the world’s great metropolises such as Tokyo, New York and Shanghai.

The rising seas won’t happen overnight, nor in anybody’s current lifetime. The global mapping project, carried out by the US group Climate Central, is based on huge sea-level rises that would not emerge for another 200 to 2000 years.

So let’s disrupt our lives and spend trillions of dollar on something that could happen in the year 4000. Sure.

Across Australia, the analysis finds there are about 1.9 million people living in areas that would be submerged if there was an 8.9 metre rise in sea level. At 4.7 metres, it is 668,000 people.

This is assuming those people won’t be bright enough to m0ve to higher ground.
