Joe Romm and the Deep End

Yet again Joe Romm resorts to extreme catastrophism due to global warming, in Salon:
...sea level rise could hit 4 to 6 feet by century's end and then continue rising a foot or more a decade, until all the land-based ice on the planet is gone and seas are more than 200 feet higher. How will our children's children and their descendants adapt to that?

A foot a decade? For 2 millenia? Where does he possibly get that?

These kind of claims don't help. At all. Except to get you on Fox News (as the liberal target). Which sometimes I think is his major goal.

I guess he melts the main Antarctic ice mass, which is what he said. Is that excluded on a 2Ka time scale?
