Accelerating Sea-Level Rise with Increase in Extreme Weather Frequency, Severity, and Duration

I continue to expand upon my argument that global sea level will rise 7 meters by 2070, as I originally discussed over 5 years ago in a video. An Arctic Blue-Ocean Event (BOE) that is very likely by 2022 will cause very large Arctic warming. With no sea-ice left to melt, we lose our Arctic “refrigerator” and all that previous “latent heat” will now be “sensible heat” jacking up temperatures. This will further expose Greenland to accelerated, catastrophic ice loss with rapid sea-level rise and abrupt increases in frequency, severity, duration of extreme weather events globally.

The United States has turned to the Asia-Pacific region in search of a country willing to host its missiles. But China warns it will respond with countermeasures if the US doesn’t retreat. RT America’s Ashlee Banks has more. This video includes a corrected map.
