Places with lots of money, like Florida, will build coastal walls to mitigate this coming flood of water and weather, while islands in the South Pacific may get submerged and disappear. But that is "normal" for the deniers, since most of them will be on high ground.
2 feet is not much but it's a big deal. Unfortunately many cities are built just barely above high tide. I'm always surprised how many people still buy homes, very expensive homes, right on the water. I do believe that we will solve these issues before 2100, but the water might still be that high by then. What's sad is that there will be people, even those who subscribe to a non-hysterical facts only science site like this who will now come on here and say it's all fake news...
Yawn, Yawn! Greenland still hasn't reached the lack of ice level that existed a few hundred years ago, when it was inhabited, and farmed. All the threatened sea rise predictions over the last 20-30 years, of ''global warming, panic-panic,'' have yet to appear. The most prominent flooding problems, like those in Venice, are not caused by water rising, but by land sinking. Anyway, be thankful that all the fiddling with fractions of one percent of anthropogenic atmospheric CO2 will do nothing to the climate, except, maybe, give the ''deniers'' a good laugh! CO2 has had no effect on climate in the last 600 million years, so it wont now, just because a bunch of con-men invented Carbon Tax.
This is simply the Earth coming out of an ice age. The time frame might have been accelerated by human activity but the warming is not unexpected. Adapt or die has always been nature's rule; nothing new.
Cue the Russia-publican climate deniers.

No, buzzclick, Florida can't do that because it sits on limestone, which is as pores as a sponge, so no wall will work there.
The solution is to build a wall around Greenland. It will become Earth's largest single source of fresh water. I think I now know why Trump wanted to buy it ;-)
Solar physicists at CERN, or the European Organization for Nuclear Research, has shown conclusively how the Earth's naturally Cooling and warming Cycles are caused by changes in the sun's magnetic cycles. When they're at maximum (lots of sun spots) it causes less Cloud cover which warm the Earth and Degases CO2 from the ocean. When the cycle switches back to a solar minimum (fewer sun spots), it causes more cloud cover which cools the earth and reabsorbs CO2 into the ocean.

The melting of the Greenland ice sheet could be a disaster for millions, but when in human history have we been able to predict such dramatic changes, so far in advance. Isn't this also a unique opportunity?

Are we coming out of an ice age, or narrowly averting one even still...?
