Stark Warning over Dramatic New Sea Level Figures
It is becoming apparent that global warming caused rising sea levels pose a far greater danger [ark] to the planet than previously estimated. The most recent scientific consensus in 2007 from the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concluded that sea-level rises [search] of between 20 and 60 centimetres would occur by 2100. However, this estimate contained very little input from melting ice sheets in Antarctica and Greenland.
The latest revised science suggests climate change caused sea-level rise [search] could easily reach one to two meters by 2100. There is now a major risk that many coastal areas around the world will be inundated by the end of the century because Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets are melting faster than previously estimated. And it will not stop then, as by 2200, a rise of 1.5 to 3.5m unless is estimated unless we stop the warming. Rising oceans will contaminate fresh water supplies, wipe out coastal farmland, and lead to increased storms with massive ocean surges.
As we witness the collapse of our shared atmosphere, three things are becoming apparent. One, climate changes are abrupt, way faster than anticipated. Secondly, the impact of the increased average global temperature pales in comparison to the “global wilding” of chaotic, unpredictable weather and sea rise patterns. And lastly and finally, humanity, the Earth and our sister species' survival depends upon a stewardship revolution.
