Climate change will get us in so many ways. This is one of them It's not just about sea level rise.
There's also famine, fires, floods, heatwaves, Tornado and Hurricanes. As time goes on and if we don't wake up and stop generating GH gases, more and more effects will manifest.

Climate change is real and should be treated as such.

Fast as you find a cure for one disease, another one comes along. It was ever so.

nice. also on a sad note the page had a link to an article explaining more polar bears are mating with grizzly bears due to climate change that's already taken place. http://www.motherjones.com/blue-marble/2012/07/study-climate-change-polar-bear-grizzly-hybrid

what will it take for people to start acting?
