Re: The sea level rise due to melting ice cap.

Isn't this actually incorrect because the water displaced by the mass of ice will still remain at the same level when it melts because the rising level is offset by the corresponding decrease in the mass of ice causing the displacement?

Always wondered about this.

Greenbelts
Bill,
What a great idea.  Let it drive you activism.  As soon as one steps forward, like the libretto of Student Prince says, "I'll soon give you five hundred more!"  At ENVR 130 (available on-line as an audit, under grad credit, or master's degree credit course, or live at Harvard every spring), the parade of IPCC Nobel laureates and Bill Blackemore of ABC-TV and Ross Gelbspan, Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter, and engineers, the Harvard environmental research librarian, a leading public health specialist, and so on drew to a close, the final class was a vibrant presentation introducing several Chambridge, Massachusetts business people, Harvard and Tufts University "green" campus leaders (not students, but professional "greenies" on staff, and others.  

You may want to glance at Google and write Harvard ENVR 130 Weiskel and Moomaw.  That should bring up the course outline with lots of links, videos, charts, and so on to provide you with ideas on ways your concern for New Jersey green zones, grasslands and trees can be promoted and action can begin.  We have no time to lose.
James.

At least green belts could be thickened and increased. The funds for green projects go for sidewalk renovation. Some trees are planted on Main Street. However more New Jersey Meadowlands restorations and reserves are needed. Green belts within urban areas need to be protected and developed. Effective pollution control for industry needs to be tested and developed extraneou emissions from filters notwithstanding as my wilted impatiens leaves showed. BCA, BILLJ
