According to the scientists the sea level rise is one millimeter a year, and the rate is doubling every decade. So ten years from now the sea level rise is 2 mm per year, after 20 years 4 mm.

The question is how many years it takes to Miami be evacuated, if the evacuation level of Miami is x meters? A closed form function of x is preferred; f(x)=?. ;)

For a bonus, how many years it take the sea level to rise one meter?

Show us your math skills. ;)

If a Russian dick goes in your ass one millimeter a minute, how long until you're satisfied?

Ultimate authority on the forum has been wrong and is also patently wrong this time.

And I guess doggies don't do math. Wuff wuff. :(

I was just giving an exercise, übung for those mathematically inclined. In reality the sea level is currently rising 3mm a year, partly from thermal warming of the water in the oceans and partly the land glacier melt.

But still anyone to solve the original problem will receive fame and applauds. ;)

Fortune favours the bold.

You don't understand the exponential. :(
