11 Jul 11 - Your reader's post mentioned the loss of farmland during an ice age. 
(See Opposing cycles for Katla and Long Valley Caldera?)

Every ice age is accompanied by a sea level drop, last one was around 450 feet.  What the North American continent loses in Canada would be gained on the Blake plateau, the submerged plateau of the continental shelf that was all dry ground during the ice age. 

During the last ice age, sea levels were 120 meters lower than today.
See Sea Level During Last Ice Age

Here's a handy sea level calculator that shows land extent.  Type in -120 to see Florida double in size.  http://merkel.zoneo.net/Topo/Applet/appletTopo.php?lang=en&file=eastUSS  There is a much more detailed one out there I saw a few years ago, but I can't find it again.

I agree with Scott that more tillable land will be available ... eventually. However, I think billions of people will die of starvation before that happens.   - Robert
