Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 7, 2013 10:56 PM

What is causing the sea level to rise? Where are the "hot spots" where the sea will rise the fastest? How quickly is land ice melting? 

These and many other questions related to sea level rise and global warming are shared in this infographic created by the Union of Concerned Scientists. There are also links to two additional resources. One is called "Causes of Sea Level Rise: What the Science Tells Us" and the other discusses the methodology and assumptions made in the creation of the infographic. It is also possible to download the infographic in sections. There are four facts discussed in the infographic:

* Global average sea level rise has increased 8 inches since 1880...

* Global warming is the primary cause of sea level rise.

* Sea level rise is accelerating.

* The choices we make today will determine how high sea level rises this century, how fast it occurs, and how much time we have to protect our communities.
