For the West Coast of Europe the effects could be quicker than the general rise in level. We owe our relatively mild climate to the warm water of the Gulf Stream, which gives us warmer wetter weather than our logditude would indicate. The increased calving rate of bergs caused by higher temperatures could send masses of ice South to disrupt this system. There is nothing simple about the effects of global warming!
