we'll be through two ice ages by then.

but it is a curiosity to watch.
What scientists are worried about is the loss of ice shelves, especially in Antarctica. They hold back massive glaciers. If the ice shelves were to break up and/or melt, those glaciers start moving toward the ocean. 90% of the world's ice rests on the Antarctic continent. If it went into the sea, the estimates are that sea level would rise 200 feet. That's unlikely to happen. But if the ice shelves are gone by the end of this century and those glaciers start dumping into the sea, the time line moves up considerably. Who knows?

We've had none going back thousands of years.

Besides Hurricanes are fun when you are set up for them. I was in one in 1993 we got over 40 inches of rain in less that 24 hours and suffered no damage or inconvenience what so ever.

The changing of the seasons makes you shyte yourself, so that's why you ran off to your wee little hidey-hole.
