Imagine The Ocean Level 20 Feet Higher

Due to warming of the Earth, undisputable warming, factual warming; what would the naysayers say? Nay, no? Will the Bushes and Cheneys of the world be rolling in their graves in shame over all these coastal areas being inundated by the savage seas?
Well, no, actually, because it happened 130,000 years ago:

At the current rate of rising temperatures, by the year 2100 Arctic summers could be as warm as they were 130,000 years ago. Back then, in a time known as the last interglacial, the oceans were 20 feet higher than they are now.

Perhaps my education was sorely lacking, but I don’t seem to recall there being cars or factories or even that source of all things globally-warming the good ‘ol U S of A 130,000 years ago; hell, Dick Clark wasn’t even born yet. So, it would seem to me that a possible answer to global warming, one that we have uncontested scientific proof, is that Mother Gaia has hot flashes every couple hundred thousand years. Think that’ll get much press?
Be prepared for the shock of the most honest headline you will ever see on CNN about global warming:

Earth’s past points to future melting

    This happens every 100,000 years or so. It’s part of Rove’s strategy.

    Given my bachelors in mechanical engineering and my masters in ME (in progress) from UVA, I feel quite qualified to offer up this highly advanced, two-step technological fix:
    1.) Dig a big hole.
    2.) Fill it with water.
