(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 sun melted the ice....i’m just amazed
“Since measurements began in 1979 antarctic sea ice has continued to expand, contrary to what the news media would have you believe. We bring this information to you month after month and still there is no sign of the main stream media picking up on the story. They continue to discuss the relatively small areas of the Western Antarctic Peninsula that are melting due to changes in ocean currents”
Hmmm. That could flood New York City, Boston, Newark, Philadelphia and Los Angeles.
I’d call that PROGRESS!
I MAY have already won $5 million from the Publisher's Clearing House.
Ed McMahon MAY become reanimated and present it to me in person.
The odds are roughly the same that man-made global warming is real.
138 more degrees and I have beach front property.
Yeahhh, jus’ like Kenyan pissssing in the ocean will cause glooobull flood! 1.004 meter per pissssss.
The fact that this gets posted on a theotically nuetral website is beyond me.
You are correct. Make up numbers, no one will check them out if it fits the agenda.
The Astros MAY win the World Series.
If the ice at the poles melt ,would the water at the equator boil ,putting it in the air causing cooling making the poles freeze and the water at the equator not to boil yada yada yada
There are a lot of ancient cities under water. Had they stopped using carbon based energy, they would still be under water. Sea levels haven’t risen significantly for the past century, and they aren’t likely to rise significantly for the next century. That’s my prediction based upon my science, and I bet it proves out better than the fear mongering, warming fanatics’ dire predictions of catastrophic destruction due to anthropogenic global warming.
Of course it IS the internet but the figure I found
for the total sq.Ft. of the world’s oceans is
3,608,687,080,000,000 square feet X 7 is a lot of
water, where is it to come from? I have read that
if all the polar and glacier ice melted it would
raise the sea level 200 ft but some how that just
doesn’t seem possible.
Perhaps we should be building a retaining wall
around NYC. Come to think of it that might not
be a bad idea in any event!!
These stories all have the same qualifiers.
The ice at the north pole is floating...............
I could have won the lottery if I would have picked the right numbers like I should have. Of course, I might win the lottery this week, and I may assume that I have the right numbers if I do.................
Let us know when your under water, Matey.
Dude; lay off the “Bad SYFY Saturday” movies, they will rot your brain, trust me, I know.
