Film raised some questions
In this documentary, Al Gore raised some questions that I have yet to receive an adequate answer. In particular, as someone who lives in New York City, I was wondering if the map of the city going under water was a post 9/11 scare tactic or based on fact. So far, our local officials treat this scenario as science fiction.
Overall though the film did present a credible case for why we need to take care of our planet. Barry's Response
- If you were to check Google Earth or a topographical, you would find that the outer fringes of Manhattan, the two or more city blocks closest to the water on all sides of the island, are at low elevations. The ground altitude is less than 20 feet around the perimeter and this is the portion alarmists claim would be submerged in the event of a 20 foot rise in sea level.
What is the likelihood of this 20 foot sea level rise?
We can only speculate on this one. This type of thing has happened before.Search
