Any thoughts?

The thawing of previously unused farmland could be one.
More freshwater from the melting ice.

The amount of available sunlight will determine the potential to farm at higher latitudes - it ain't going to change significantly.

One of the most significant early on is reduced costs in shipping due to open water at the Polar regions.

But this will bring on more arctic oil drilling - which will accelerate Global warming.

I find it extremely difficult to see positive in Global warming.

It's not difficult if you put aside the negatives.   I'm not saying global warming is a good thing, I just thought a topic about the positives could be refreshing.

I think there is a potential to explore new archaelogical sites.   New digs in previously untouched land.

Sea level rise would make that extremely unlikely. I would love to see the continental shelves emerging from the oceans so we could find out what Ice age culture was really like in places like the Gulf of Arabia and Sunderland - but that would require a return to Ice age conditions not global warming.

Not entirely true.  In Canada they have already unearthed many fossils of extinct animals in areas that used to be permafrost.   I don't think sea level rise will cover all land.

Ooh ooh!  Another positive:  People who had not ever had seashore property will have it.

So the positive is that more living animals will be able to survive on that land.   More resources (trees).

Not bad.

Again, this thread is not meant to discount the fact that global warming is a big negative for the earth's population.   It's to find the positives that we can hold onto.

Any change to the status quo will create both winners and losers.  Canada and Russia stand to gain arable land and will be able to make up the agricultural shortfall caused by desertification in the US.  The Everglades will disappear, but the area around Gainesville will have a lot of good seaside property.  We may even have a ne fishery where the Greenland icecap is now to replace the ones we've killed off.  Etc.
