I didn't mean to suggest you uncaring. Anyway, very informative post on explaining in real terms what the rise in sea level will do and what and who is hindering doing anything at all to help the situation.
I live right smack dab in the middle of coal country, they are all very touchy on the subject and blame Obama for the loss of jobs in the coal industry. At present they are all up in arms over pensions which had nothing to do with Obama but the company itself, but you can't try to telling them unless you want a fight and I like most of these people. So it is not just the companies and big wigs in government.
