    If the ice melted, I would go to the fridge and grab a handful from the freezer box to place in My glass, and when that ice melts, I'll grab another handful .

    Sea level would rise 70m. I'm at 150m so no worries.

    I can't believe that figure.
    Surface area of Earth is 510 million km^2.
    70% of that is the sea. That's 357 km^2.
    Multiplied by 70 metres, that's 25 MILLION CUBIC kilometres of water/ice.



    That's an awesome figure.

    Consider Australia. 7.7 million km^2. That means the non-sea ice in the world would be equivalent to Australia being about 3.2 km high, solid ice.
    OK....I see it now. 70 m is realistic.


    Keep in mind that sea ice melting will make no difference to sea levels.

    No. Your 14th floor apartment would be 20 or more metres under water.

    Doesn't look like anything to get too worried about.

    Very well thought out. I cheated.

    If all the ice covering Antarctica, Greenland, and in mountain glaciers around the world were to melt, sea level would rise about 70 meters (230 feet). The ocean would cover all the coastal cities. And land area would shrink significantly. But many cities, such as Denver, would survive.

    So which is worst? Sinking cities or rising seas?
