    The Pentagon has numerous contingency plans for overseas conflict due to global warming and migration. Hell, India alone will be a huge disaster when it gets worse.

    My favorite quote from the article:

    "What about sea level rise? IPCC estimates sea level could rise two feet (0.6 meters) by 2100. Does that sound apocalyptic or even “unmanageable”"

    If the seas rise by two feet it will cause a lot f problems. Miami, for example, is starting to see day lite flooding. Day lite flooding occurs because of rising water bases. Seal levels have increased in South Florida by about a foot so far. Obviously, as sea levels continue to rise the problem will get worse. And a lot of the Everglades will be turn into the Gulf of Mexico.

    A lot of coastal Louisiana is eroding away for reasons largely unrelated to global warming. But a rise of an additional two feet will wipe out a lot of bayous.

    I remember coming down from Flagstaff to cover a Giants-Cardinals came in December sometime in the late 90s. There was snow on the Saguaro cacti as far south as Anthem and the game-time temp in Tempe was 39 with a lower wind chill. Giants must have felt right at home. The other fun part was that the Cardinals cheer team ran out with flags to celebrate after they took an intentional safety late in the game, and the game ops people had to run them off the field. Cards were always good for some unintentional comedy.
