Global sea levels could rise much higher this century than previously projected, 10% of Earth population, 600 milion, live in these low lying areas.
sea-level rise is continuing at 3mm per year or more since 1993, a rate well above the 20th-century average.
The oceans are continuing to warm and expand, the melting of mountain glaciers has increased and the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica are also contributing to sea level rise.”
Based on past experience, I expect that sea level rise will accelerate as the planet gets hotter.”
research indicated sea levels rising between 75cm and 190cm by 2100.
Even if the world manages to cut the emission of greenhouse gases driving global warming, the “best estimate” was about 1m, he added.
ANOTHER NEW STUDY, next article
Global sea levels could rise by up to 9m in the next few hundred years, even if the world manages to stabilise average temperatures to 2C above pre-industrial levels, according to a new study.
Acid Oceans: The consequence of greenhouse gases. Reducing carbon emissions might have unknown effects on global temperature oscillations, but would help prevent ocean acidification. We’re having a change in water chemistry, so 20 years from now the system we’re looking at could be affected dramatically but we’re not really sure how. So we see a train wreck coming,… carbon absorption in the oceans is damaging key creatures’ hard shells or skeletons.. Oceans absorb about 25 percent of the world’s greenhouse gases pumped into the atmosphere from human activities each year,… That helps slow global warming in the atmosphere,… Ocean acidity could increase 150 percent just by mid-century
Climate chief Lord Stern: give up meat to save the planet. UN figures suggest meat production is responsible for about 18 % of global carbon emissions. Meat is a wasteful use of water and creates a lot of greenhouse gases. Direct emissions of methane from cows and pigs is a significant source of greenhouse gases. Methane is 23 times more powerful than carbon dioxide as a global warming gas.
The best comment on global temperature oscillation (global warming):
There is some anthropogenic global warming, but it is practically inconsequential. Much bigger influences are creating our climate oscillations.
The complex system of our planet will adjust itself to increased greenhouse effects gases.
Much bigger problem is environment pollution. Back to fossil fuels burning damages.
