Rising Waters: How Fast and How Far Will Sea Levels Rise? by Nicola Jones: Yale Environment 360

Rising Waters: How Fast and How Far Will Sea Levels Rise? by Nicola Jones: Yale Environment 360 | Environmental science | Scoop.it
Although the latest U.N. climate report significantly increases its projections for sea level rise this century, some scientists warn even those estimates are overly conservative.
Synnove's insight:

The main points in the article:

 

- The ice is melting, In Greenland, researchers have seen the rate of ice melt double since the 1990s

- Thermal expansion: We’re already 0.85 degrees C warmer than 1880

-The article debated about whether there will be 1 or 2 meters of sea level rise by 2100

 

I really recomend this article. It had a lot of inside information about the issue that the sea levels are rising, I think is very important for people to be aware how serious this problem really is. It gave different aspects of the situation, and it gave us different scientists opinions as well. It made me worried about the next 100 years, and made me realize how serious this is.
