Sea Level Rise

My question to Dr. Rahmstorf on the much reviled 20-foot rise claim in Gore's film. It's real.

Since this is in centimetres could you juxtapose these figures with any level of uncertainty with the 20 feet rise should Greenland and the WAIS both melt? I watched Lomborg testify in Congress and this was the one point he made of Gore's film where he claimed it was false beyond any doubt.

[Response: Greenland ice is good for 7 metres and the WAIS for 6 metres of sea level rise. 20 feet is about 6 metres so either ice sheet alone, or half of each, could lead to a 20 feet rise. -stefan]
