Click this link to submit a letter to the Bee about the collapse of the West Antarctic ice sheet.
See suggestions from Dana, below, for how to respond to the breaking news of the inevitable collapse of the West Antarctic ice sheet. We now cannot avoid 4 feet sea level rise over then next 200 years from Antarctica alone.
We can still prevent even more serious outcomes if we reduce emissions now. By putting a tax on emissions at the source and returning all the revenue to households, we reduce risks to our economy, our children's future, and the most vulnerable among us.

"The May 13th Sacramento Bee front page ran a chilling story about the irreversible collapse of the West Antarctic ice sheet. Because of global warming, the melting of this ice sheet by itself is expected to raise global sea levels 4 feet in the next 200 years, and as much as 15 feet in the coming centuries. This gradual sea level rise will combine with the rapid loss of Greenland ice and the expansion of ocean waters as they warm.
These rising ocean levels will impact tens of millions of people living along coastlines at low elevations. These sorts of expensive impacts are why we know it will be cheaper to prevent global warming, for example by implementing a revenue neutral carbon tax, than to delay and pay its damages. This ice sheet collapse may be unavoidable, but it's not too late to prevent many other climate impacts."
