Yes there is a natural rise and fall of the ocean level as Joe Mage has stated, but we could be accelerating it so fast that it could very well go above and beyond the level Earth naturally goes through.
    Accordin' ta the Theory, the ocean level has ta peak 'fore the Submergence Period can truly begin, which means that the Polar Ice Caps would have ta completely melt for that ta happen. So, if u go by the Theory, how fast it occurs is not necessarily a determinin' factor in how high the Oceans rise. The real problem lies in if it would occur too quickly for the human race ta adequately prepare for it, but (given the fact that it takes millions of years for the land ta recede far enough 'fore it would pose a threat ta those livin' on the land, thus givin' suffecient amount of time for evolution ta occur) if the Theory is correct; we really should have sufficient time ta make preparations, even wit our race addin' ta this occurrence. We would have more ta fear from a lack of preparation on our part than any lack of suffencient amount of time ta prepare.
    And yes I do know that there are under sea volcanoes that erupt, hell we have one just off the cost here in San Diego. But I am talking about comparing activity to that of historical events that has accrued in the past. I have no doubt that these accrue, just that not to the level of what they use to be.
    This is one of the reasons supporters of the Theory say why the Revolution Periods have been gettin' longer and longer, while the Submergence Periods have been gettin' shorter and shorter, 'cause of the lack of more frequent volcanic activity. However we have ta look at it like this, since man has been recordin' history; there have been only two major volcanic eruptions; the one that destroyed Pompeii and one on one of the Islands (forgive me, but the name of it escapes me) of the Phillipines. And scientists can' even begin ta imagine the amount of carbon emissions that these two events spewed forth. Now here's a good question, what about all of the major volcanic eruptions that occurred 'fore written history? The ones that we don' know 'bout? We would need ta trace any major volcanic activity that occurred since the latest Revolution Period began 'til now and that's goin' back 100's of millions of Years. Mankind's jus' a pin prick by that measurement.
    Yes Yellowstone is a super volcano and when that thing goes bang we are all pretty screwed ladies and gentle men. What most people don’t know is that its a thousand years over do, give or take. Oh and the meteor hitting the Earth, that’s not global warming that’s global annihilation (depending on the size of the space potatoes.)
    Now that's somethin' that I would be more afraid of happenin' than the earth warmin' up. If that thing blows, we're talkin' major global catastrophe! More so for the survivors than those that perish after the intial eruption, I hate ta have ta put it that way. If that thing goes, I hope that evry1 has their blankeys; 'cause u'll b usin' them for a long, long time.

    can we all at least agree the global warming is a problem and it is not all that of the problem because of the sun. And further more that the humans most likely will not (ops) survive??? how, it does not matter all that much (I think)

    Yep, I can agree to the fact that global warming is bad.

    Global worming = destruction of earth at some point of time! ... problem is solved! (actually is worsened!!) ...

    From what I've read of the topic, humans seem to be drastically increasing a process that may have already started. True, volcanoes put out a ton of chemicals into the air at one shot, but they aren't always having such spectacular displays of power and, in the overall scheme of things, it really isn't all that much compared to the size of the planet. I do find it odd that people are just now starting to push for hybrids and the like due to rising gas prices than they were in the 80s when scientists were examining global warming in depth and telling everyone we needed to start worrying.

    Scientists actually don' know how much mankind is contributin' ta this phenomenon, they don' have enough evidence ta accuately say that we're the cause. Nor do they have enough evidence ta say that there is actually a threat. In fact there r scientists that argue the exact opposite point of view and that we don' need ta panic. Point bein' is this, the scientists don' really know, one way or another. Both sides make alotta claims, but neither side can offer any substancial proof, only circumstantial evidence and theories, ta back them up. And as far as volcanoes r concerned, u correct as far as in one lifetime is concerned, but volcanoes have been on this Earth for far longer than mankind and have been eruptin' ever since the Earth's birth. As I have stated 'fore if u were ta trace all of the major volcanic eruptions, since our Revolution Period began, it would go back 100's of millions of years. And where do u think all of the carbon emissions go from those eruptions? They don' jus' go away. No, instead they build up in our atmosphere 'til mother nature finds a way ta get rid of it. Which, in my opinion, is why the Earth goes through Submergence Periods, if u believe in the Theory. I'm not sayin' that Mankind isn' contributin' ta this phenomenon, I'm sayin' that a there r many ppl pressin' a "panic button" that doesn' exist. Life has existed through these Periods 'fore, it can suvive through them again.

    Joe, we are not disputing the fact that volcanoes pore out tons upon tons of carbon and other fun chemicals into the air, we get that. But if you take into the account of the billions of cars, the millions of factories and the millions of homes, and trillions of smaller other causes that we Humans contribute will add up to several moderate volcanoes erupting 24 hours a day 7 days a week for 365 days a year. Global warming doesn’t go up one point at a times, it grows exponesialy.
