I wonder how many know that the Pacific Ocean is higher than the Atlantic Ocean or that the earth has been warming for 12000 years? If you know natural history, you know that no human action can not stop Climate Change. The oceans will rise the climate will warm. During this interglacial warmup, the seas rose 340 feet since, and mile-high glaciers melted. Those who lived through the flooding of the English Channel, the Mediterranean Sea, and the Black Sea witnessed Catastrophic Climate Change in their lifetime, as did those living along the coasts ran from rising seas. The Native Americans living in what is now the Northwest were drowned by the thousands like ants because of Catastrophic Climate Change created a mile-high lake of melted glaciers held back by an ice dam that succumbed to GLOBAL WARMING and killed nature, now known as the Badlands National Park.
The concept of “low-hanging fruit” seems to have been forgotten by people who have little knowledge of natural history. When the warming began 12000 years ago, melting was rapid because many glaciers were in reach of the warming seas and atmosphere. As the easy ice disappeared, there were slowdowns in ocean rise because warmer temperatures would be required to reach the ice not yet melted. The bottom line, oceans will continue to rise the climate warm until this period of interglacial warming ends irregardless of zero emissions.
