    Nice to know it would take 130 metres to flood my house, and 136 metres to flood my mums house, and 145meters to flood my uncles house. We are reasonably safe!

    Apparently if the polar ice caps were to melt completely the rise in sea level would be about 60-75 metres. I can't find a reliable source for this but I do seem to recall it from some TV program or newspaper article. I can't remember how much that figure would be changed if all sources of water were to melt: Mountain ice/snow, glaciers...
