Western Antarctic ice sheet collapse has already begun, scientists warn

The bad news: “The loss of the entire western Antarctica ice sheet could eventually cause up to 4 metres (13ft) of sea-level rise, devastating low-lying and coastal areas around the world.”

… good news: “But the researchers said that even though such a rise could not be stopped, it is still several centuries off, and potentially up to 1,000 years away.”

…maybe our childrens great great grand children will remember it was us who sat back and did nothing to stop this… is this how you want to be remembered?
