Tim...

This IS METaR which was once described as "pornography for pessimists".

Accurately I think :-)

Nor do I subscribe to the notion that the military would be entirely helpless. It might however, be busy. [more]

When the Antarctic Ice spreads out that means?

Maybe not anything good at all...

Around Antarctica, meanwhile, sea ice has been growing — potentially another indicator of cooling and freshening at the ocean surface due to ice loss from the frozen continent.

Re: Pulse event could kill most of us

I differ with the alarmists on this thread in my expectation of the human response to an event – I think we would react constructively and cooperatively.

Also, as I pointed out earlier... if we see this sort of collapse it is not stopping at 12 feet. It won't stop short of 36 feet and the next 12 is not apt to come slowly upon us either.
