If the accepted causes are, in fact accurate, the models that predict a worsening are hard to ignore. As the artic thaws, immense ammounts of trapped CO2 will be released. So, if CO2 is a culprit, it's likely to add to the existing problem.

Ok let's say that's true, can it be stopped? Or do we just tell people in those regions that they live there at their own risk

That I don't know. I'm sure we've all heard references to the tipping point. I don't know when that is supposed to be reached. Ten years ago they were talking about the real possibility of reversing the process. The majority of industrialized nations

I guess we'll have to watch Gore's latest movie to get the inside track.

They are saying lots of things in the 70s, 80s, and 90s too... There is plenty of reason to be skeptical of things... But common sense must prevail... I don't see a long term national advantage in aggressively pursuing 20th century energy resources

and beyond the budget seems like a fool's endeavor. Actually funding the practice would be admitting there is a problem. That would be a bitter pill for some to swallow.

My guess is that they will ignore the problem until rebuilding Houston or Miami becomes an annual event.
