(Reuters) - Sea levels could rise by 2.3 metres for each degree Celsius that global temperatures increase and they will remain high for centuries to come, according to a new study by the leading climate research institute, released on Monday.
Anders Levermann said his study for the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research was the first to examine evidence from climate history and combine it with computer simulations of contributing factors to long-term sea-level increases: thermal expansion of oceans, the melting of mountain glaciers and the melting of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets.
Scientists say global warming is responsible for the melting ice. A U.N. panel of scientists, the IPCC, says heat-trapping gases from burning fossil fuels are nudging up temperatures. A small number of scientists dismiss human-influenced global warming, arguing natural climate fluctuations are responsible.

The operative word is “may”.
....or they may not...............
In fact, we look forward to owning exclusive beachfront property soon. Bring a cooler, a blanket, and a colorful umbrella.
How much has it already risen?
High School physics teaches that water expands in volume when freezing and ice contracts in volume when melting.
I think they forgot to code the above fact into their computer models.
As in ‘Monkeys MAY fly out of my butt.’
We ain't shoppin' for no trouble here. So if you're planning on coming over, sneak in at night and tell us what outrage you have committed.
LOL! Are these asshats still falling for algorythms? What complete and utter fools. Astro physicist king hussein has spoken.
somebody’s been watching Waterworld again....
yay, Costner sinks the Exxon Valdez!
News flash!!! The climate has been warming since the last Ice Age!!!!
odd how the research of climate researchers always seems to glorify researching the climate.
Oh, No! That means an inevitable Sharknado!
How high is that when you convert from British metres to American meters?
Or 2300 kilometers?
Or 75 billion miles as long as they are making stuff up?
Who is causing the global warming now?
Puff the magic dragon?
They REALY need to work on their fiction writing skills.
2.3 meters is not a very exciting lie...
Didn’t the ‘average global temperature (whatever that is) rise by a couple of degrees over the last century? Where is the rise in sea levels that resulted from that increase?
Correct! They may also rise by 200 feet. However, neither case is likely.
Maybe they will.
But if there are 0 degrees of warming, that means 0 metres of rise.
I’m gonna drive over to western Oklahoma and make a down payment on some future beach-front property.
[Notice these words: ‘may rise’ and ‘could rise’. They call supposition science.
