It is expected to warm by a lot more than 0.1C. Humanity can survive rising sea levels, but why should anyone have to suffer because of that.

To place all that you have on a bet on technology that does not yet exist or may never exist is a fool's bet. Your best bet is to bet on what you know now. Not on what you do not know now. You may also want to consider this before placing your bet. At no time, within the history of man, has ice covered the entire planet. Another consideration for you to make before placing your bet, the faster the changes happen, the less chance that you can respond (adapt) to the changes. ... Are you ready to place your bet? Added Kano, you need to sharpen your reading comprehension skills. I said that in the history on man the planet has never been covered in ice. I never said in the history of Earth. I am well aware of the "Snowball Earth". Mankind was not yet in existence then. Microbes were likely to exist then, but there is no evidence that more complex life forms existed then. Either your reading comprehension level is not up to par, or your are hoping that par is set so low that no one else will catch this distinction.

Humans did not live in new york during the ice age. There were certainly not 7 billion people either. We barely survived. Technology will only save a small portion.

I am not in the least bit worried about global warming, but global cooling scares me, and contrary to what Som1has says it is possible the Earth was completely covered in ice;_ylu =X3oDMTEzODM5bzZ2BHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDMQRjb2xvA2dxMQR2dGlkA1NNRTM 0Nl8x/SIG=11vburoe6/EXP=1387642125/**http%3a//en.wikipedia.o rg/wiki/Snowball_Earth

In order to endure something, you have to be there. When New York was under that ice -- there was not a single human being in all of North or South America - and there would not be single human being there for at least another 6,000 years.
