There are 2.6 billion people on the planet who crap in ditches and have no running water, cars electricity, etc etc. They don't give a flying fuck if Manhattan goes under water. nor should they. The Saudis have only oil and sand and nobody wants to buy sand. Even if the US and Europe stopped using oil the third world would buy it and use it to industrialize the same way we did 100 years ago.The arabs need to feed their people. Are we willing to kill the Saudis so they don't sell lt to starving people because Canada will get 4 degrees hotter and actually find out what the ground looks like for more than a few weeks a year?

We built cities near oceans and rivers because that was the original transport nubs. we have trans plane and railroads and no longer need cities,just ports, so if we need to move inland it is no big deal there is lots and lots of land everywhere. A warmer earth will mean more fresh water and more food. It will save more lives than it will cost and the polar bears will learn to eat caribou like the fucking grizzly bears. In the meantime we can send them some beef to eat from all the cows that will suddenly be able to gaze in the now frozen tundra.

Sorry to rant but this scaring the children has to stop. Even 5 degrees won't change things as long as we adapt. It is not a nuclear winter folks. It just means George Clooney might have to build a seawall in malibu. fuck him anyway.
