Goias will not only remain free from the tidal waves assaulting the coastlines facing the Atlantic and Antarctica, it will remain above the new sea level after the existing poles melt. The Amazon Basin will flood, steadily, and freeze over at the outlet which will be positioned within the new North Polar Circle. Thus, there is some danger for those bordering the Amazon Basin to find themselves awash in water with no outlet, but in the main this land will drain across the Amazon Basin, to lands not locked in ice, finding new outlets. This large inland lake will hold fishing opportunities not currently considered an option by residents of Goias. The largest concerns will be climate change, which will bring the land into a colder region, so survivors must be prepared to dress warmly and study how the residents of Canada, for instance, brace for their climate. Local plants and animals will suffer, accordingly.
