    So it's OK for China to lose 10 costal cities?

    I live on the 6th floor, is that high enough?

      They can lose a dozen and keep rolling.

      take shanghai.  

      Assume the sealevel rises 4 Meters.  

      They build higher port facilities and
      build a new shanghai on higher ground.

      could we do that?

        I happen to live in Shanghai and it's about as close to sea level as you can get without build dikes or living underwater, so call me selfish when I say I don't want the icecaps to melt.

        No, Shanghai cannot be rebuilt, it has already got it's round of investment and needs to generate revenue for development westward.
