Lots of goofy cartoons by Russell Miller in this book, which is why I like it so much... survivalism with a sense of humor... run for the hills, but giggle all the way.
The technologies and the tools we need to develop to survive in cases of emergency, like rapidly rising sea levels, are the same as the ones we need to green this planet... they go hand in hand, they are not mutually exclusive as some would like us to beleive.
Cody Lundin has consulted for National Geographic which is gearing up a big green campaign. The old lady finally woke up, that this precious jewel they've been chronicling for a century needs to be cared for, not just touristed to death.
Soon, at the rate we're going, with people running right and left wondering how they're going to survive, feed themselves, find shelter, books like this one, if the knowledge it contains gets absorbed by enough young people, may end up saving your bacon.

Kevin Costner got something right! Yeah! The track is Debonaire by Dope.
Cool comments for the YouTube page:
The world is flooded because the ice caps melted. It doesn't make a lick of sense I know. lol
Actually the ice caps melted cuz of the damn greenhouse effect or that's what the movie pretty much says.
Yeah but there isn't enough water in the ice caps to flood the entire world. Most of the continents would still be there, just a little smaller.

Oak Ridge discovered that global warming was controlled by the UV equations effects on the health of plankton in the ocean. These plankton determine the CO-2 levels in the atmosphere because they are the dominant CO-2 sink and they determine the cloud coverage of the planet by releases of dimethylsulfide (CH3SCH3, DMS). DMS comes from the plankton and is part of the global sulfur cycle that supplies sulfur into the food chain. When the DMS levels are impaired the cloud seeding effects are reduced and the planet heats up because of lack of reflection of heat. The DMS levels also determine the health of the entire planet due to the sulfur needs of the immune system glutathione enzyme.
You know the old saying, "I love humanity, it's people I can't stand!" or was that the other way around? Either way folks, we're royally screwed. I was a foolish, idealistic young man, who turned into an old environmentalist fool, who thought he could wake up humanity, to realize the insanity, the billions wasted on these calamities... and now this, our anti-nuclear Congressman, who Bonnie Raitt helped get elected... supports an all nuclear Navy.
Carriers of the Ford class will incorporate many new design features including a new nuclear reactor design (the A1B reactor), stealthier features to help reduce radar profile, electromagnetic catapults, advanced arresting gear, and reduced crewing requirements.

A week of heavy rains caused rivers to overflow, leaving at least 70 percent of the state - and 80 percent of the capital - under water. At least one death was reported. Nearly all services, including drinking water and public transportation, were shut down in Villahermosa.
Of the estimated 700,000 people whose homes were flooded, damaged or cut off, 300,000 still had not been rescued Thursday, Tabasco Gov. Andres Granier said. Police, soldiers and military workers were still trying to reach them.

The 44-year-old illusionist from Zurich is a master of transformation. After 12 years working his way up through the ranks of an investment bank, he felt in need of a career change and left to become a helicopter pilot.
Hofstetter loves the idea of being able to reinvent well-known monuments, buildings and landscapes in people's minds, using his huge 6,000-watt projectors and slides to transform them into temporary art sculptures.
In 2003 he travelled to Antarctica as part of the United Nations International Year of Freshwater to throw light on the issue of icebergs and global warming. His images of polar bears on melting ice caps subsequently circled the globe.
"My major expedition next year is to Greenland to project some penguins in a place with the highest number of collapsing icebergs in the world."
