    If all of the icebergs in the world melted, why would it not be a problem for anyone ?

    It would definitely effect some ecosystems and the water level ... bye bye new orleans lol
    Otherwise I really don't think it'd be as catastrophic as people are leading us to believe...

    Well, I guess the same that would happen to a glass of water with ice. If you fill the glass to the brim, and it has some ice in it, what will happen when the ice melts? Nothing! because of the density of ice, the water level would be the same.....

    But to get there, imagine how much heat we would need to melt ALL the ice in the poles!........
    With all that heat in the poles, the ocean levels would be the least of our problems.....
