I apologize, I am being aggressive. Also, I can't claim to know enough about
global warming to be able to state that New York or San Francisco will
disappear under water if the climate warms up by 10 degrees (Celsius).
Barbara's response was a lot more appropriate.

Question for Barbara: the article you forwarded says "Sea levels were likely
to rise between nine and 88 cm (3.54 and 34.64 inches) [by 2100]". Even if
it were 88cm, this doesn't seem much for a 6 degree warmup - I've heard much
wilder figures than that.

Since the article still seems to regard global warming as something that
could potentially force tens of millions of people to move, how does this
relate with the 88 cm prediction?
