Sea Level Rise Effects and Projections

Sea Level Rise

As temperatures surge, sea levels rise with it. This is because melting ice sheets and glaciers add to total water volume.

Scientists estimate sea level will rise 32 to 68 inches by 2100. This rise in sea levels could swallow parts of coastal cities like Shanghai, Olympia and New York.

How do we slow down the massive supply of water?

First, we reverse deforestation to capture more carbon from the atmosphere.

Second, we reduce greenhouse gas emissions to help stabilize temperature.

Finally, we all have to consider the environment in our daily lives.
