The Ice Caps Melted and the Sea Rose Already. But Politics.

The disastrous flooding of populated lands by the sea has already happened, and in modern times.
Those beautiful cave painting from Altamira, Spain are thousands of years older than the great sea floods that destroyed Doggerland, Sundaland, Beringia and the land bridge from Prince Rupert to Haida Gwaii and placed them under hundreds of metres of brine.

We live with the ice cap leftovers and have our panties in a knot about another few feet of flood.  This is quite likely to happen at some point but not when the King Canute types in science and politics  try to command the sea.
