“Scientific truth” alone is not enough to sway public opinion. We must not stand by in silence while fossil-fuel climate change deniers confuse the public and dissuade our policy makers from taking the urgent actions needed to fight global warming. Join me in the climate war – for the sake of future generations and the planet.

Sea Level graph and statistics: The Copenhagen Diagnosis: Sea-level prediction revised: By 2100, global sea-level is likely to rise at least twice as much as projected by Working Group 1 of the IPCC AR4, for unmitigated emissions it may well exceed 1 meter. The upper limit has been estimated as – 2 meters sea-level rise by 2100. Sea-level will continue to rise for centuries after global temperature have been stabilized and several meters of sea level rise must be expected over the next few centuries. Link
