ScienceDaily (Mar. 19, 2012) — Even if humankind manages to limit global warming to 2 degrees C (3.6 degrees F), as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recommends, future generations will have to deal with sea levels 12 to 22 meters (40 to 70 feet) higher than at present, according to research published in the journal Geology.

I guess I'm in trouble then, I'm at 34' above sea level, even though I'm almost 90 miles from the coast. I guess central California will turn into an inland sea!
