Earth warming

Less than 3 percent of the water on Earth is freshwater. Much of that freshwater is frozen in the polar regions and glaciers. The premise that as the Earth warms, the ice will melt and result in catastrophic flooding in the world’s low-lying regions. In actuality if the Earth were to warm enough to melt all polar and glacial ice, the increased depth of our oceans, I believe, would be negligible, like filling a bucket with a thimble.
