A few nits to pick
1. I think you mean ten to twenty feet higher elevation, though I suspect it would probably need to be a bit higher if the polar caps melt.
2. Has the movement in the earth's axis been accounted for in these models of projected climate and geography?
3. Reforestation, particularly in the area formerly the Great North American Forest, would have a more significant impact on greenhouse gases than emissions from factories, with the possible exception of Ohio energy plants.
4. Excessive private transportation and non-pedestrian transportation in general should be curtailed if we are going to make serious reductions in greenhouse gases.
5. As nits 3 and 4 indicate, rural sprawl -- there is nothing "urban" about it -- is the main culprit in the buildup of greenhouse gases. Even more so as that form of development does not conserve ambient temperatures as urban areas do.
