Global sea level is unevenly distributed. ---------------------------------- (clown nose off) We could increase productivity and surplus wealth which would allow us to foster innovation when the economics are right and will make new solutions we haven't even dreamed of trivially easy and relatively inexpensive but instead have chosen to throw money at our domestic political allies pursuing rainbows and unicorns while lowering surplus wealth and miring the third world in generations more of poverty when we haven't fully studied the so called problems but hey we at least get to call Republicans meanies.
