The present sea level rise is easily within the normal variations for the last 200 years. So, all these projections are just models.  The  land mass in the upper Western Hemisphere is rising with negative SLR.  The lower WH land mass is subsiding resulting in exaggerated SLR. There you have it. As for CO2, it has a relaxation time of  10usec after absorbing a photon.  Collisions occur every 0.27ns.  So, ~370,000 collisions occur before its mean time of photon emission occurs and cools down.  I must  say most of its energy is not in IR photon emission but in vibrations that warm up neighboring molecules. In this respect, it's no different than any other molecule. Thus, the role of 15 micron IR radiation is  greatly exaggerated.

Electric heat using graphite panels will beat out natural gas at around $928, considering the 25% savings from lack of convective losses compared to heating with natural gas with convective losses.

The global temperature rise has been about 0.5 deg C per century for the last 200 years.  So,  a  1.3 deg F rise is not all that unusual. The thermodynamic calculations for the heat capacity of CO2 does little to support its role as a major climate changer.  For every  deg K increase in global temps, the role of 380 ppmv represents only 4/10000 of  a  deg K  increase. This, as the Germans would vouch, is "macht Nichts!"  The continued effects of rising CO2 ppmv would actually cool  the planet, not warm it.

In Enemy at the Gates, the lithograph copy showed 4 kills while the copy handed to Vasili Zeitsef showed 5 kills. Hmm?

There  has been a recent discovery of natural caffeine free coffee bean trees discovered in Sao Palo Brazil from trees imported from Ethiopia.  It may take quite a few years to get these orchards up and running, but the effort is underway.
