NEED FOR CALIF LOW CARBON FUEL STANDARD EMERGENCY REGULATIONS
Below are two pertinent articles about Antarctica's melting ice. It would only take a three foot sea level rise to flood the coastlines, and cities, lowlands and islands of the world:
Once the Antarctica's Wilkens Ice Shelf completely breaks away, (Chunks have already broken away within the last week) it would enable the Antarctica's glaciers to slide into the sea at a faster rate in the future.
Should the glaciers slide into the sea, there would be a at least a ten meter rise in sea levels that would flood coastlines, cities, states, lowlands, and islands of the world. Major Cities, such as, San Diego, Long Beach, parts of Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Oakland, Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver, Canada on the West Coast would be flooded. Cities, such as, as New York, Boston, Washington, D. C., Miami, on the East Coast would be flooded. The Great Lakes cities, such as, Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Toronto, and Toledo would be flooded. States, such as, Florida, Hawaii and Alaska would be flooded. The Gulf Coast cities, such as, Mobile, Biloxi, Gulf Port, New Orleans, Houston, Galveston, and Corpus Cristi, would be flooded.
Also, parts of the British Isles, the Caribbean Islands, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, the Philippines, Cuba, and parts of Australia, New Zealand, Africa, and South America would be flooded.
I continue to keep you informed re: developments of global warming and its effects on the coastlines, cities, states, lowlands, and islands of the world. My responsibility is never ending, in keeping with the University of California's Alumni's Duties and Responsibilities (1983).
