Default The south will rise again

I have seen this quite a few times in my life - mainly on bumper stickers - but I am curious as to how real/relevant this is. Is it just tongue-in-cheek? Pie-in-the-sky fantasy? Or is it very much on the radar - talked about often in the south? Proponents raising the issue on TV etc? Ie: like ETA but wthout the violence.

Its based on the fact that much of the Southern part of the US will be covered by water in the next 200 years from Global Warming and then it "will rise again" in the following ice age.

several years ago, there was a "don't litter"(stop littering) campaign for the State of Texas. "Don't Mess With Texas" was the campaign "catch"phrase.

Living in the south my whole life, I've heard it many times. Almost always in the same context, usually drunk off moonshine, the last words uttered in a state of semi consciousness before passing out cold.

You tell me..
Usually that bumper sticker is on a ratty old pick-up truck sporting a rebel flag from the antenna or a rebel flag decal in the rear window..
And if you happen to be behind one when they pull into the driveway of their luxurious mobile home you see them dodge around several other old jalopies, lawn mowers, appliances and any number of other broken devices.
Hub caps adorning the front porch of their trailer. Two or three half dressed toddlers running around. Maybe a couple teen aged boys passing around a beer staring at the neighbor girl in here Daisy dukes..
Then you get to my neighbor house..

Curious, isn't the South part of the conservative wing that constantly echo how "fake" global warming is and that is something the liberals created to create panic; you know, those "grassroots" movements.
