    I will go for a visit and might as well go visit Denmark while I am at it.

    Why?

    Go to Newfoundland sometime- is Greenland any more hospitable if we get the ice off it?

    Also- as much as I like disaster movies, it’s gonna take a long damn time to get the ice gone.

    One of the things I studied were the mechanics of lake formations in prior ice sheet regions.
    Apparently little (many acres across) chips of ice remain for centuries- they are covered in soil and forest and when eventually gone leave depression which form lakes.
    The reason why natural lakes are largely absent from states south of ice extents and common above..

    There is a small quid pro-quo here. If the Ice were missing from Greenland it would probably be more habitable after a while. But Florida wouldn't.

    Whatcha mean by that....

    And this if we break out of the current cold snap...

    Just think of it travel to Florida sunny sandy beaches beautiful people. No glaciers or snow. Free of any Need for visas. Florida is very nice and it can be expensive especially in larger cities and close to the coast.

    There are a lot of small towns which are very nice and very often natives return to retire in their home town moving from other States back to Florida.

    It has had a lot more people come here so I will agree it will likely less habitable.

    There will be less Florida if the oceans rise. I like those maps.

    I imagine that the diameter at the equator would increase most if the ice at both poles melted.

    Probably the biggest problem would be the increase in the severity of ocean storms with rising temperatures.

    Just spitballing here but am betting equator circumference would lessen with a decrease in mass on the elastic mantle at the poles.

    Five reasons why the speed of Arctic sea ice loss matters | Carbon Brief

    This brings up a couple of things I hadn't given any thought. Less salt in the oceans and the effect of reflecion from snow and ice.

    I'm thinking the sea level will rise at the equator for the same reason as launching rockets into space isn't done from the poles.

    Why is the Earth bigger at the equator?
    An equatorial bulge is a difference between the equatorial and polar diameters of a planet, due to the centrifugal force exerted by the rotation about the body's axis. A rotating body tends to form an oblate spheroid rather than a sphere.
