‘Unavoidable’ sea rise: NASA Unavoidable Sea Rise

Published: August 29, 2015

‘Unavoidable’ sea rise: NASA Unavoidable Sea Rise, Sea levels are rising around the world, and the latest satellite data suggests that three feet (one meter) or more is unavoidable in the next 100-200 years, NASA scientists said Wednesday.

Ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica are melting faster than ever, and oceans are warming and expanding much more rapidly than they have in years past.

Rising seas will have “profound impacts” around the world, said Michael Freilich, director of NASA’s Earth Science Division.

“More than 150 million people, most of them in Asia, live within one meter of present sea level,” he said.

Low-lying US states such as Florida are at risk of disappearing, as are some of the world’s major cities such as Singapore and Tokyo.

“It may entirely eliminate some Pacific island nations,” he said.
