National Geographic: Antarctica's ice is melting, but the scariest prediction for the future may be on hold.
https://www.nationalgeographic.com/envi ... -less-bad/

10-16 inches increase in sea level by 2100.

While I will be gone by 2060, sea level will continue to rise.

The new prediction is a foot. That is a conservative estimate in a field that just keeps going UP.

melting on this scale is a big guess.

If Thwaites goes that is 10 feet.

There are volcanoes involved in this area. The second densest congregation of volcanos on the planet. June 2018 confirmed this. See nature.

Global warming is sinking ALL coasts.

Volcanoes will take care of MOST MAJOR CITIES, if they continue to warm the ice from below.

Right now the ice is on simmer. Turning up the heat would be an entirely different set of circumstances.

( And you thought I was going to say kettle of fish)

HINT, they would not have included TEN FEET of sea level rise in this NOAA Model just to SCARE PEOPLE.

You can adjust sea level rise prn.

WARNING: a foot of sea level rise is extremely serious. See the NOAA app.

Musk out engineers the world of rocketry again.

Everything Musk did in Rocketry was considered previously.

In regards to this raptor engine the technology had approached the doorstep of the technology now being used on the Raptor engine.

Musk force of will funded the last steps, six years of research, and now apparently they have the most efficient rocket engine ever produced.

The article is a bit technical.
