TUCSON -- The new issue of the journal Science features new research by Univ. of Arizona climate scientist Jonathan Overpeck showing if global warming trends continue and ice keeps melting sea levels could rise by 20 feet within generations.
Check out the maps. Huge areas where millions of people live will be underwater, including big parts of the US southeast and east coast.

One major contributor to global warming pollution in Tucson tonight is VP Dick Cheney, here to help rake in corporate money while showing Arizonans that Jon Kyl is his right-wing buddy. Cheney flew in to town in his own big jet, drives around in a speeding caravan of flashy huge limos and Suburbans, and will wine and dine in climate-controlled comfort under bright lights.
If Cheney and Kyl own coastal property they'll likely be selling it to some suckers and investing in high elevation undisclosed bunkers.
