Disclaimer

Disclaimer. After nearly 40 years managing money for some of the largest life offices and investment managers in the world, I think I have something to offer. These days I'm retired, and I can't by law give you advice. While I do make mistakes, I try hard to do my analysis thoroughly, and to make sure my data are correct (old habits die hard!) Also, don't ask me why I called it "Volewica". It's too late, now.

BTW, clicking on most charts will produce the original-sized, i.e., bigger version.

Melting

The Greenland ice cap is melting 5 times faster than it was just 15 years ago, and the West Antarctic ice cap 3 times faster.  This will increase the rise in sea level  to 4 inches per decade compared with 7 inches for the whole of the 20th century.  In fact, in the past, rapid meltwater pulses have raised sea levels 14 feet in a single century.

Time to DO something.
