Warmist Kevin Trenberth: 5% chance that CO2 will cause a big chunk of ice to fall into the ocean, raising global sea levels three feet by 2100

A draft of a summary of the report for policy makers predicts that sea levels may rise as much as 3 feet (0.9 meters) by 2100, according to Trenberth.

“There’s a 5 percent chance that it might get to that level if something unusual happens and a big chunk of the ice sheet actually collapses into the ocean and therefore melts quite a bit faster than it otherwise would,” Trenberth said.

Actual sea level rise by 2100 is likely to be somewhere between 10 inches and 3 feet, he said.
