    Historical cooling may have been accomplished in the 16th century it seems.

    "Colonisation of the Americas at the end of the 15th Century killed so many people, it disturbed Earth's climate.

    That's the conclusion of scientists from University College London, UK.

    The team says the disruption that followed European settlement led to a huge swathe of abandoned agricultural land being reclaimed by fast-growing trees and other vegetation."

    Honestly I think its a great idea...

    I mean you have farming to consider.;

    Psychology involved, facts, assumptions, truth, intent, hype, talking vs. walking, cost benefit analysis, and more maybe.

    Making those their own subcategorys the would be nice.

    Certainly beats having it on the fringe, or immediately putting it in alternative theories. Do the main ones alphabetically backwards... Just to screw with somebody

    You sure about that number/percentage?
    link?

    the % is a rough statistical average of coastal citys, capital citys, global population spread and average level of citys above sea level with stormy weather on high tides.

    you want the retail fast-food plastic wrap non recyclable version of links to data ?

    i have googled several different types of questions to get an idea of what available links there are.

    what type of accreditation reference are you asking for ?
    wiki ?
    govt ?
    conservation ?
    travel ?
    marine ?
    climate science ?

    etc etc ...

    this type of thing is not package wrapped for average consumers because the implications and facts are very alarming to the average ignorant citizen.
    it also has massive investment and insurance implications so companys and businesses are not wanting the information to be made easily digestible for TV viewers.

    think of all the capital citys you know
    think of the spring tide

    think of a very stormy weather blowing the tide in.

    now add 3 meters

    https://oceanservice.noaa.gov/facts/population.html
    keeping in mind...
    the inland places where rivers flow from the sea. towns are typically placed beside rivers as much as possible.
    combined heavy rain and high tide levels...
    additionally, compounding the issue is that there is no increase in storm water capacity of these areas.

    From NOAA
    and
    8 of the 10 largest cities are along the coasts

    so
    When sea level rises
    ,and if the lessons of previous interglacials are any indication of the future---and I think they are
    Then without our exacerbating the normal situation we should expect sea level rise of about 6 meters.(more if we are indeed within a superinterglacial like mis 11)----but that will, most likely, take thousands of years.

    The thing is that when looking at the past, we can easily estimate the late eemian sea level high stand
    however, the causal factors remain elusive.
    (my 'best guess" is that there were massive and continuous rainstorms, some of which dropped rain on the ice sheets making their conversion to water much faster than with heat alone)

    projections
    again from NOAA
    NOAA scientists conducted a review of the research on global sea level rise projections, and concluded that there is very high confidence (greater than 90% chance) that global mean sea level will rise at least 8 inches (0.2 meter) but no more than 6.6 feet (2.0 meters) by 2100.

    wow---1:10---------quite the range
    (thanx for nailing it down guys)

    Therefore, what??????? Ignore the problem in the hope it will magically disappear?

    Have you not read the scientific concensus that we are already in the sixth extinction event?
    It's got a name, that's pretty definitive, IMO.

    Are you suggesting that science is not qualified to make such an "observation"?
