How accurate is the movie Water World? Could that really happen?

    It is not remotely accurate, there is not enough water in the world to cover all the dry land. The Earth didn’t used to have ice caps, they were formed out of the existing water on the planet, and it is illogical for their melting to bury the world in water. There are 29,300,000 km3 of grounded ice in the world. If this ice melted it would become roughly 24,000,000 km3 of water spread over the surface of the Earth. A net increase of about 66 meters of water (around 216ft), spread over the earths lowlands/oceans.
