    And snowfall will be a thing of the past no doubt!

    Meanwhile a Trumpette sees it as all good news as it will make shipping cheaper when the North West Passage is open all year round.

    Sounds great, except no coastal cities will exist to ship goods from/to etc etc.

    We're starting to enter a new minimum thanks to reduced solar activity, this is going to at least counter the effects of the greenhouse effect and buy humanity some time. Let's see if the politicians can put that life-line to good use? I'm not holding my breath though.

    Well, if you did, it would reduce the amount of CO2 you produced and the amount of O2 you used...

    Plenty of time to dredge the seabeds and build new islands with all that sand. Eureka! No more flooded coastlines and plenty of new islands to sell to the world's rich at immense profit.

    China have been doing this for years in the South China Seas area.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    There will, just that they will be new coastal cites. A smart forward thinking investor might determine where the new coastline is likely to end up and buy the land now to sell at a profit when the new coastline is established. now what could possibly go wrong!

    Dover will no longer be a critical port

    The Fens and Broads will be tidal again, the flood plains where all the houses were built cheaply will flood, it's all positive

    Ah, time to resurrect my idea of living on a boat in a field to avoid planning issues. No need to even bother digging a pond to float it in if I get some cheap floodplain land. Prices are bound to sink on this news.

    There are too many people on the planet. Until those alive wake up to the fact that fertility must be controlled, things will get worse. Then people will die horrible deaths - lack of water, food, or from pollution.
