What reputable scientist has said “we will be underwater in 20 years”?   You’re making crap up.

I didn't say reputable scientists are saying this.  This is the part of the article I highlighted:

Journalists and activists alike have an obligation to describe environmental problems honestly and accurately, even if they fear doing so will reduce their news value or salience with the public. There is good evidence that the catastrophist framing of climate change is self-defeating because it alienates and polarizes many people. And exaggerating climate change risks distracting us from other important issues including ones we might have more near-term control over.

If we listen to reputable scientists, this won't be a problem.
