Global Warming & Climate Change: The Phenomenon

If the ice caps melt then the sea levels will rise and a lot of land will be underwater. But won't a lot of land be freed from the ice? Won't that land also "spring" up as the weight of ice lifts. Therefore will we have as much land as we had before albeit perhaps not fertile and suffering Winter/Summer day length issues? All I see are maps showing the flooding but not Antarctica, Greenland, Siberia, Canada without the ice. I suppose the equatorial regions above water may be too hot but what will the ratio of lost to new land be?
During the last ice age Scotland, like much of northern Europe, was covered with ice. The weight of this huge compacted ice sheet pushed the Earth’s crust down, causing the land levels to sink. Over the 14,000 years since the ice sheet melted, Scotland has been rising an average rate of 1-2mm per year.

It doesn't look as though the land will rise quickly enough to cancel out the effects of the flooding caused by melting ice.
 
Climate scientist Michael Mann wins more than $1 million in a defamation lawsuit.

https://www.cnn.com/2024/02/09/media/michael-mann-national-review-climate-defamation/index.html

"A jury has awarded climate scientist Michael Mann more than $1 million in a defamation lawsuit he brought against a former scholar and a media personality who lampooned Mann’s work.

The legal battle has been ongoing for more than a decade. Mann initially filed a lawsuit in 2012, after Rand Simberg, a former scholar for the Competitive Enterprise Institute, and Mark Steyn, a TV and radio personality who wrote for the National Review, wrote blog posts ridiculing Mann’s scientific research that warned of rising temperatures, and compared him to Jerry Sandusky, the former Pennsylvania State football coach who was convicted of child molestation."
 
Isn't Northern Scotland still rising - incredibly slightly as a result of the ice from the last Ice Age melting?

Yep. Google “raised beaches” to see images of numerous former seashores, now many feet above current sea level:

I’ve been reading articles like this in proper newspapers since the seventies. Ice Age predicted by 2000 clearly never happened. Then I’ve been told I was going to be boiled in my skin like a Black Pudding by now. Which is it?
This is why Global Warming has been renamed ‘Climate Change’ as this allows alarmist narrative to be promoted whether it’s too warm, too wet or too cold.

Just you wait until the polar bears come knocking at your door or maybe sea lions or land lions.

Didn't you get the memo?

There's a fisherman's cottage in Blackpool that in time passed was right on the shore but is now
1 and a half miles inland.
