For your perusal, without prejudice.
I'm nor sure where the article author get's his headline though.

New study projects that melting of Antarctic ice shelves will intensifyNew research published on October 12th projects a doubling of surface melting of Antarctic ice shelves by 2050 and that by 2100 melting may surpass intensities associated with ice shelf collapse, if greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel consumption continue at the present rate.

Local press is talking 40cm instead of 5cm by centuries end. But the disappearance of the ice and the warming of the polar seas will produce other effects than just a rise in the tide line.

I won't be around at the end of this century (unless medicine gets real good real quick and real cheap) but I am concerned for my children and their children.

There is an interactive map floating around where you can see your area if the stuff really hits the fan climactically, or if it only hits partially. Where I am is almost unchanged from today in either scenario.

Does anyone have a link to a decent sea level rise map?

And before all that happens, the Gulf Stream will lose a lot of its steam. That will kill what's remaining of the fishing industry in the NE. It could have some effect on the climate as well.

The Gulf Stream is slowing down.

I was jst looking at an interactive sea level map, but I seem to have lost the link. I'll post it when I find it again.

That would make a mind numbing mess of Western Europe's climate and infrastructure!
London is on the same latitude as Maine !

Sea level is rising several times faster on the N Smerican east coast and the Indian Ocean than elsewhere. An effect of redistribution of gigatons of water. In Greenland and Antartica, sea level will drop as the ice sheets melt. That much ice affects local gravity.
