Concerns over a rise in sea level due to global warming have been prevalent in recent years, a new study has suggested that sea levels could rise from 0.75 to 1.9 meters before the turn of the 22nd century.
A new scientific study warns that sea level could rise much faster than previously expected. By the year 2100, global sea level could rise between 75 and 190 centimetres, according to a paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Thank you Michelle! Sometimes it's just the wording you use to ask Google I guess. Wouldn't it be nice if we all had the opportunity to go to college and get degree. Still wouldn't give you a drop of common sence.

The way I see things right now, people need to stop pointing fingers at the U.S. for environmental problems. I traveled to L.A. in 1989 and the air quality was absolutely horrendous. I recently went back 2 months ago and it was a world of difference. The sky is as clear as you can get it. So for any of you who suggest that the United States is the problem, you've got a screw loose. A friend of mine who recently visited Beijing, on the other hand, told me of how he couldn't see clearly two blocks in front of him under a cloudless sky. The U.S. CAN do more to clean things up, but those who want ... [More]

IMO, it wouldn't make any difference in this matter. If anyone comes to a different conclusion they are branded as an uncaring dissident, ignorant or bought off by big oil. Google 'scientists that refute global warming' and see what you come up with. Not really, look at that very small list and the ones with that branding are one who have been paid off (someone are the same ones who claimed smoking and asbestos where harmless). There are others who do not fall into that category and just have differing opinion.

So for any of you who suggest that the United States is the problem, you've got a screw loose. You've got to base your opinion on more than a few days visit. I visited Wisconsin for a few days and I think it's made of cheese. The local weather waxes and wanes. Now if you studied the weather for a long period of time in those places or perused statistics of air quality over time, then you'd have something to say. Oth... [More]

There are others who do not fall into that category and just have differing opinion. So scientists can be paid off...just not the ones that are pro GW. Matt, I love that you are passionate about this, but I do think that in your studies, you have gotten too close to it to be impartial and aren't seeing the big picture.

Matt, I love that you are passionate about this, but I do think that in your studies, you have gotten too close to it to be impartial and aren't seeing the big picture. Of course I have gotten close to it. Marine sciences have provided some of the strongest evidence. I have seen this work first hand. Believe me, the people I work with are not paid off, most of the time they are barely paid. Having no background in science doesn't make you impartial.

Especially if you are on a research grand... every penny counts.
