<DIV>Sea level rise will happen no matter what we do. Even if we stopped all carbon dioxide emissions today, the seas would rise one meter by 2050 and three meters by 2100. This?not drought, species extinction, or excessive heat waves?will be the most catastrophic effect of global warming. And it wont simply redraw our coastlines?agriculture, electrical and fiber optic systems, and shipping will be changed forever. As icebound regions melt, new sources of oil, gas, minerals, and arable land will be revealed, as will fierce geopolitical battles over who owns the rights to them.<P>In <I>The Flooded Earth</I>, species extinction expert Peter Ward describes in intricate detail what our world will look like in 2050, 2100, 2300, and beyond?a blueprint for a foreseeable future.
