You know, there is global warming. But, it ain't caused by man. It is some sort of natural occurrence and happens periodically over geologic time. There is some evidence that the Earth's orbit about the sun changes with time, some sort of cycle over geologic time.
~80 million years ago, what is now Kansas was several hundred feet below water. And it is suspected that it happened millions of years before that.
"The Cretaceous Period is a geologic time designation from 144 to 66 million years ago, when much of central and western Kansas was under water. The relatively deep sea advanced and retreated, leaving behind sandstones and shales of the Lower Cretaceous, such as the Dakota Formation, and the Upper Cretaceous limestones and chalk of the Greenhorn and Niobrara Chalk Formations. Much of the Dakota Formation consists of colorful clay shales, as well as beds of lignite that were used by early pioneers for heating (The Geologic History of Kansas)."
Here are a couple of maps depicting the sea level. A=Obviously, it's all based upon fossil finds.
“...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
― Theodore Roosevelt
