The Sea Level is Rising Rapidly

If carbon emissions are not reduced, sea levels are expected to rise by more than one meter by the end of this century. The sea level is rising faster than expected.

Stepfan Rahmstorf, a researcher at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Researchers in Germany and one of the authors of the survey, said many coastal cities need to be redefined as sea levels rise. Such as Miami, New York, Alexandria, Venice, Bangkok - these are just examples. Many of them may not be able to survive and may eventually have to leave their homes.

This picture has come up in a survey conducted by more than one hundred experts. Based on the melting of polar ice caps and new climate information, scientists say coastal cities should be prepared to defend before the UN conceives.

They have warned that the sea level will rise to five meters by 2300. The Guardian quoted a survey published in the journal Climate and Atmospheric as saying.

The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) works primarily in coordination with various scientific working groups. The IPCC's idea is that if current levels of carbon emissions continue, sea levels could rise by 1.1 meters by 2100.

However, the newly released survey indicates that the sea level will rise further.

The survey was conducted by scientists at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.

It is supported by seven research institutes around the world. These include the University of Durham in the United Kingdom, the Tufts University in the United States, and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany.

As carbon emissions continue to rise and global temperatures continue to rise by 4.5 degrees Celsius since the pre-industrial era, sea levels could rise by another 600 centimeters to 1.3 meters by 2100, according to a new study. It is feared that the homes of millions of people in the coastal areas will be drowned. However, if mankind can limit the rise in temperature to 2 degrees Celsius, then the sea level will rise by only five hundred centimeters. Which will be much easier to deal with.
