Human Dimensions of Natural Resource Management:-People Interacting with Natural Environments – by Bob Payne

I am having the following conversation with Bob at http://hdnrm.wordpress.com/2011/04/13/increasing-climate-resilience-of-island-communities-of-samoa

No doubt Bob is concerned with the threat of rising sea levels on the pacific islands so I asked him the following question.

As I said in my comment, I am sure that I answered his comment but maybe it got “accidently” spammed. 

Now why would Bob do that?

Perhaps he will tell us in his next reply.

Do you know how soon will it be before we are fully effected by the 7 meter sea level rise caused by the melting of the Greenland ice cap then?

Cheers

Bob,

I was sure I answered your comment. Could it have been accidentally spammed?

Anyway here it is again.

According to the IPCC, that epitome of exaggeration, the answer is more than 2000 years. I kid you not.

Note the use of the word “millennia”

Cheers
