Climate Ice melt danger

The climate is warming, the water is rising but by how much? 7 metres... Bullshit.

First it is mostly natural gain, the total energy consumption as heat will not raise the earth that much. So we get a bit of heat entrapped by naturally occurring methane and a raise of 100PPM in Co2some days but not other days? There is something wrong there.    

In the arctic most of the ice cap is floating. When it melts, it will contribute nothing to any change in the sea level. Similarly on the sea ice around the Antarctic. Antarctic has 14 x10^6 km^2 of land mass with about 2 meters of ice on average. The oceans have occupies 360 x10^6 km^2 so when the Antarctic melts, the ocean will rise a whopping 8 cms. So that is perhaps only half of the ice. What am I missing here?

The other big factor in water rise is the deltas are consolidating, as these were and are being deposited under consolidated.  There is no doubt here, but that has nothing to do with water level rise but subsidence of land. Oh well, shit happens.

Alberta would benefit by trapping spring melt water on the land. It could be used for irrigation and or wetlands, both of which would fix Co2.

Oils sand oil is dirtier than Coal per giga-joule of energy, so what is Notely really shutting down coal for? and where are we going to get fly-ash from?

Notely reminds me of a quote from Genghis   ...

Happiness lies in conquering one’s enemies,
in driving them in front of oneself,
in taking their property,
in savoring their despair,
in outraging their wives and daughters.
Genghis Khan
