I watched this episode of Aftermath.  I enjoy watching your science fiction programs.  I would ask that you present this as pure science fiction instead of scaring your viewer based on unreliable information.

I have lived both on the beach and in the desert (very near Death Valley).  I can assure that if temperatures reached 135 degrees, most human and animals would be dead within 4 days.  If seaside cities were faced with sea level rise of 200 ft they would be under water.  200 ft of ocean is a lot of water.

Does anyone "fact check" the info that is presented?  Because it took me no more than 5 minutes to find this info.
