These are the top 10 countries threatened by the 6 meter sea level rise we are almost guaranteed to see in the not-too-distant future, according to the projected pace of global warming and ice melt in Greenland and Antarctica.

what about the Philippines?

30M cubic KM of ice in the world, area of world's ocean is 510M sq KM; therefore 510 divided by 30 = 17; therefore 1000metres divided by 17 = 58.8 metres maximum sea level rise possible.

Shouldnt maldives be in the list?? It is whole island with only 6 m high from sea level.
Modest 6 meter rise. ok

There is no climate change. Farmers and gardeners still plant and harvest their crops the exact same time now as they did 150 years ago. The leaves on the trees still grow and freeze again the same as they ever did. The ducks and geese still migrate North and South the exact same as they ever did. Utility companies still dig in underground lines on the same schedule and the same depth as they ever did. Road builders still start in the spring and quit in the fall the exact same time as they ever did. Climate change is a way scam to get your money.

So change is bad? Life must be a real disappointment for you. Did you know that CO2 in earth's atmosphere has been hundreds of times the level it is today? And did you know that earth has been through ice ages when CO2 was hundreds of times the levels it is today? How could that happen if CO2 heats the earth? It couldn't happen if CO2 heated the earth. But it does happen because CO2 doesn't heat the earth. Why don't you research the data yourself instead of listening to and believing every jerkoff you see on tv and stop peddling fear porn?

Do you not know this has happened many times before.... It's not global warming that we create, its natural. It always happens. But the Carbon Dioxide does not help.

Good video. However, it was odd that in the US, New York was chosen, even though it will not be the most affected. Southern Florida, Louisiana, and the entire Gulf Coast will be much more affected. More land, and more people will be underwater.

I am in favor of global warming! It is as natural as evolution. The Earths climate has been changing since the first day the Earth came into existence. I don't care about humans having to move further inland. If global warming causes the extinction of humans I think this is great too. 99% of all species have gone extinct and I really don't care if humans go extinct. The Earth will recover in a mere few thousands years after humans are gone.

Keep in mind that equatorial waters are deeper than the rest of the ocean.. from centrifugal force so equatorial coastal cities will be the hardest impacted. 6 meter rise is a global average as well, which could mean that while in the Netherlands it rises by 6 meters, in equatorial waters it could rise dozen(s) of meters...

Sea level rise, contaminating land with salt water, reduces crop yields and living space. I'll give you to 2030 and all hell will breaking loose, But the 1% will still be in power as growth will be a thing of the past and extinction of man will be well on it's way. The animal with a brain screws everything up for greed.

The narrator doesn't understand the systemic approach that's been taken to virtually eliminate the threat of flooding in The Netherlands. Sea levels would have to rise by significantly (ten-fold) more than even the most pessimistic projections before it would form a seasonal problem. The problem of rising sea levels isn't so much the fact that sea water would spill over, as dunes and sea-dams are way too high for that to be a realistic scenario. The problem of rising sea levels arises from the additional stress on inland waterways. Contrary to the levies breaking in New Orleans however, where defences were built directly on the water line, instantly causing the water to move at ever increasing speeds, resulting in inevitable breaks at weak points at funnels such as bends, Dutch dikes are subtle inclines that allow for much greater volumes of water to be displaced at reasonable speeds. And even when these huge waterways fail to adequately counter large influxes through extensive rainfall, the entire country is designed to accommodate floodings. You'll find that the land behind dikes will generally be lower than the riverbase, after which there'll be a series of other dikes, encapsulating closed systems called polders so as to localise floodings in areas that would suffer virtually no economic cost, let alone threaten the loss of life. During periods of extreme flooding they'll actually purposely break the dikes in strategic places so as alleviate pressure and steer water away from critical areas. Think of it like dressing in layers in winter, or better yet, the way the space shuttle is insulated, or a lizard being able to regenerate its tale as a defence mechanism; instead of taking on the threat head on, you exploit its weaknesses. The weakness of water being that, as its danger is a result of pressure building up in finite cubed dimensions, an expansion its horizontal axis disapates its threat. That's why the tsunami in Japan was so catastrophic; the water had nowhere to go but up, gradually building up pressure till some link in the chain gave. This is where NL's flatness actually turns into a blessing in disguise, as as long as you divert water away from critical areas, it has loads of room to settle. In all honesty, I think that a very large number of cities around the world like New York and Hong Kong would suffer way more from rising sea levels.

Sea level has been rising at a rate of 1 - 2 mm per year for 8000 years. See any tide gauge data located where there is not also subsidence or other tectonic effects. The temperatures at Antarctic and Greenland today are -40C and -10C. Ice doesn't melt at these temperatures. Sea levels are not going to rise 6 meters anytime soon. 2mm per year means 20 cm per century. This article is climate alarmism based on junk science and should be censored.

Ken ----- Doom sells. Catastrophic predictions get clicks. Dystopia futures are popular movie themes. The Arctic was mostly ice free before this video was posted according to our pal Al. I don't have the cash to go check. I'll just have to take his word for it. I don't think this video should be censored just made fun of..

Sea level rise is a hoax. Observing barometric pressure is largely ignored today. This goes back 150 years and the average reading is still the same: 29 to 31 inches of mercury. Also ignored is the 30% melt of the Arctic icecap in 2004. Average barometric pressure was the same that year. Where did all that water go? Into the clouds.

Global warming nonsense ruins the analysis. We are coming out of a Glacial period. During the last 150 million years 5/8ths of the time, there was no ice on the polar caps nor were there glaciers. This warming is NORMAL and not the result of man-made CO2, which presently is near an all time low.

I have good news that's actually bad news but is still kinda good news. So basically, if the mega volcano in Yellowstone, explodes, the temperatures will fall by like 10 degrees....that said, the world would be in peril if that ever happened, so howabout we just stop wasting our resources and go eco friendly instead of depending on a massive (mega) volcano to do it for us.

Undercover Cactus (1 year ago)
Ranking it based on how many people are displaced is a fine way to do this, but I feel like the title should be a bit different. I mean, countries like the Maldives are clearly more in danger than China, China just has more people that will be displaced as it's the most populous country, so it gets ranked #1 while the Maldives isn't even on the list.
