Roaring Waves - Nations in Distress

Global sea level rise accelerates since 1990, study shows | Reuters
Reuters reports: "The rise in global sea levels has accelerated since the 1990s amid rising temperatures, with a thaw of Greenland's ice sheet pouring ever more water into the oceans, scientists said on Monday. [...] Sea levels have risen by about 20 cms in the past century and many scientific studies project a steady acceleration this century as man-made global warming melts more ice on land. [...] A rise in sea levels will threaten low-lying coasts from Miami to Bangladesh, cities from Shanghai to San Francisco and small island states such as Tuvalu in the Pacific."

Comment: Should I expect the usual pushback from the anti-global warming crowd after I post this?  I take the rare position that it does not matter if global warming is part of the natural inter-glacial period or man-made (or both), it's to be expected in light of Luke 21:25. In my opinion, Christians need not fear accepting the reality of global warming and have the option of seeing it as a fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
