What do you get up to when you've had to fit your computer with locks?

Don't sell up your French home, wherever you live, the sea is coming to you.
I have experienced a mid winter whiteout on the high tundra between Alta and Skaidi, I tell you, it's no big deal there is nothing to see, anyway, but I must go back there as I think I left the lights on.

Eventually - In a couple of million years time, maybe longer.

Well researched Fitter. Interestingly the rise in sea level has been above that overal average line in the last 20 years. If that is extrapolated expotentially, you might be out by a million years or so. Add to that coastal erosion, the occasional tsunami and land sinkage due to resource extraction, who knows, could be down to a week or two. I might just take up fishing.

Interestingly I was randomly following links yesterday and found an article on the very subject. It started with comment on the current rate of global warming that is obviously melting the polar ice caps and raising sea levels. It then went on to point out that it is not only the ice caps that are a factor. There are huge areas of permafrost in the north that are also thawing out. This thaw releases Co2 which increases the greenhouse effect and therefore increases the rate of global warming. Taking this increasing rate into account they recon that by the end of this century the mean sea level will be over 180 feet higher than it is today. :shock:

There's been far too much exponential extrapolation going on recently with sea level data.
That graph is based on tide gauge data not from satellites.
