All rivers flow to the sea.

No, some dry up before they get there.  The Colorado River, for instance.

Really ?

Please elaborate on this smoooth move Mr. Wizard.
As Ross Perot once said... "I'm all Ears" !

Ecclesiastes 1:7

One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever. The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose. The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits. All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again. All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.

Civilisations Collapse and to think otherwise makes no damn sense.

It was trying to get there.  It was not trying to go anywhere else.  In the time of the earth mankind is a flashbulb and the Colorado river takes a brief rest.



It will go back to the sea and that will happen before anyone thinks.  In a blink of the cosmic eye.  You want to argue so bad you think your days to strut in the sun must last forever but like the Colorado is now:

All we are is dust in the wind.

Just pointing out a current factoid.  Currently it would be more correct to say it flows TOWARD the Sea, not TO the Sea.

Rivers aren't forever either, the local Geology changes over time.  Mountains grow and then they erode away.

The good news is that the seashores will rise to meet the rivers. Problem solved.

Global Warming Will Drown Bangkok, Shanghai, Mumbai[/url]
150 million people are currently living in places that will be below high-tide in 30 years, according to new research

Scientists have dramatically underestimated the impact rising seas will have on cities around the world, according to research published in the journal Nature Communications on Tuesday. 

One hundred and fifty million people are currently living in places that will be below the high-tide line in 30 years —  three times as many people as the old projection methods estimated. 

Previous estimates relied on satellite data to forecast sea-level rise, but satellites can’t distinguish between ground level and taller elements integrated into the landscape, like trees and buildings. The paper, authored by Scott Kulp and Benjamin Strauss of the Princeton, New Jersey-based nonprofit Climate Central, used artificial intelligence to identify errors in the data and correct them. 

Their model paints a grim picture: whole swaths of Vietnam, Thailand, coastal China, India, Egypt and Iraq swallowed by ocean. Where previous estimates showed one percent of Thailand’s population would live in areas under water by 2050, the revised estimates puts the figure closer to 10 percent. In Vietnam, a quarter of the country’s residents — 20 million people — presently live in areas that will be flooded at high tide. Almost all of Mumbai, where 1.6 percent of India’s population lives, will be inundated. 

The New York Times has a set of maps illustrating the projected devastation.

It makes it into MX, it doesn't make it all the way to the ocean.
