oceans rising

"Been living on the East Coast  in the UK  for the last 40 years, just looked out of the window, No its not risen yet."

 
What a relief to get this post.  We should tell all the scientists right away.  I also looked out the window and saw that the sun was actually moving around the earth, not the other way around.

Even if the water level rises as much as the worst case scenarios project, i'm quite certain Thailand would manage to build a 50cm high dam at the coastline over the next 30 years and won't just let Bangkok sink.

I'm guessing this is tongue in cheek.

Interesting piece in the New York Times this week on Manila and San Francisco:  much better on-line than in paper at https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/02/13/climate/manila-san-francisco-sea-level-rise.html.

We live in a house which is right on the border of Bangkok and Nonthaburi .

Several times, I have said to Mrs. J Bangkok will flood sometime and we should consider moving somewhere higher. She said they have been saying Bangkok will flood since I was a child.

 

Why should I care anymore, I will be dust by the time this happens ...anyway she can always move upstairs...
