Suppose we humans have ignited a massive climatic change, and (as Gore wants us to believe) oth the Greenland and Antarctic ice caps melt off. This means that the seas will rise, and mankind will have to migrate away from the coasts. Will this also mean that fomerly dry areas (like the sahara and Gobi deserts ) might become moist and productive? Or will the newly enlarged oceans turn cold, and actually increase the deserts? I can certainly agree that global warming can be bad, but it might also benefit in some ways-europe grew tremendously in the warm period fromAD1000-1350. Of course, if you live in Bangladesh, global warming won't be very nice.
