If we burn all the potential fossil fuels, Walt Witman's Jayne's Hill aka High Hill and a few other points on former Long Island will remain above the new ocean level.

Most everything around here is wet during the rainy season. And the rainy season is long.

The sea lee has risen 300 feet since the last ice age covering a land area the size of current day Asia and Europe and it's going to rise more.

Maybe we should do what the people who promote for profit global warming are doing.
Like al gore. He buys beach front mansions with natural gas heated pools and Flys all over the world in a chartered fuel guzzeling private jet.
He don't seem to be that worried about it.
So neither should any of us.

What an idiotic argument. Are you going to discount scientific conferences about AGW because the attendees arrived by plane ? Or because they arrived by EV but used dirty grid power ? Or because they were exhaling CO2 ?

Fires are natural. Burning down your house isn't smart.

Sea level was stable from Roman times to the Industrial Revolution.

Then over the same time span at the end of the last ice age the sea levels may have risen up to 100 feet. That doesn't prove anything.

Personal problems.
Live on the coast you are at the mercy of the seas, this has only been a fact of life for as long as man has lived on the coast.
The fact that it's now billions of people as opposed to thousands or hundreds of thousands is a flaw of human nature.

It also just happens to be a very large chunk of modern civilization. Do you think you are going to be spared mitigation taxes or disaster taxes ? Do you think your way of life is going to continue on as before with civilization in upheaval ?

Just HOW stupid are you ??!

As changes in geography happen, (in decades or 100s of years), we will just move.... Man has been doing this forever. First place to move from? New Orleans.

I really want to understand why current politicians are so invested in forcing entire world to spend our tax dollars to MAYBE stop some worldwide changes in our topography... In the distant future...

I KNOW that our politicians are not that idealistic..... They would be getting some $$$$ deals NOW...

Just like they are willing to make drastic changes in our country's demographics TODAY, without regard to what THAT will do to our society in the future.

Did I tell you I do not trust our current government??

...some worldwide changes in our topography...
I get the impression that you are ignorant of, or downplaying the severe consequences of climate change in the near future. Changing topography is our last concern. People dying of heat waves, and climate refugees are in the news now. The big one is ecosphere disruption. Think undying germs and dying crops. There is no Horseman of topography, there are famine, disease and war.
