Hansen sees sea level rise of ten feet this century

James Hansen and a team of researchers have published a paper that foresees huge sea level rises changes this century, of ten feet in fifty years, which would doom much of developed south Florida and lower Manhattan, just to cite a couple of obvious examples.

But the paper has not been peer reviewed, and researchers such as Kevin Trenberth, who have been warning of the risks of climate change for years, have been critical.

Look forward to having a chance to read the paper, which can be found here (pdf), and to hear the back and forth. Hansen, of course, has a long history of being on the mark when it comes to climate predictions.

Toles clearly thinks he has a point.
