Very interesting debate.

I saw Al Gore's movie and he presents a compelling case for concern.

The number of people that'll be displaced with rising ocean levels will wreak havoc with the world economy - lost beachfront sucks but refugees on that scale would be horrifying. Don't know if the water rose when we moved from being hunter gatherers to agrarian and started trundling down the road to where we are --- but, there wasn't much of an impact in comparison to what'll happen this time around - I'd guess.

The solar activity argument and the to-be-created carbon sink that will equalize it all out are very attractive theories...I hope they're right - otherwise, I'm with the earlier poster who lamented all of his planning going to hell.
