Melting ice to liquid water, will gather around equator because of gravity

@lomidrevo
And do you think it's ALL going to "gather around the equator" ?
 
ESL. My point is that sea level rise will rise more around equator than on the earths poles. Ive studied earth system science, you have clearly not.

Yes, but that's not what you said. How MUCH more will the rise be at the equator as opposed to higher latitudes?
 
According to google(?!) = ca 21000/total sea level rise -> %

Please send me some scientific references which have actual numbers based on which assumptions to support your claim (and I will reopen this thread). As already pointed out, the relative ratio between equatorial coasts compared to coasts at higher altitudes is the important data here.

Articles in popular science magazines are no sufficient base for a scientific dialogue.
Since valuable discussions are being made and then threads closed
Valuable is relative here. Party small talks are not valuable discussions. We need facts in general but especially on subjects which are so politically misused as CC.
