Four meter sea level rise

John Holdren, president of AAAS and prominent in climate change policy, predicted a possible sea level rise of 4 meters (13 feet) this century in a BBC broadcast last month. This prediction is much worse than fears expressed in May.

“We are not talking anymore about what climate models say might happen in the future.

“We are experiencing dangerous human disruption of the global climate and we’re going to experience more,” Professor Holdren said…

He blamed President Bush not only for refusing to cut emissions, but also for failing to live up to his rhetoric on harnessing technology to tackle climate change.

“We are not starting to address climate change with the technology we have in hand, and we are not accelerating our investment in energy technology research and development,” Professor Holdren observed.
