A new study on sea level rise in the past decades have shown that cities along the East Coast of the United States are at a more flood-prone future, seeing how sea level rise in the area is more rapid compared to the rest of the world.
Like in the Arctic, Antarctic and even Canada, glaciers in Alaska are melting. Now, new research reveals that like their famous brethren, they may make large contributions to global sea level rise.
It seems that every day scientists are telling us how climate change is causing the Antarctic ice sheet to melt, threatening to raise sea levels and drive the region's iconic penguins into extinction. And now, it appears that Antarctica, which was already rapidly disappearing, is melting faster than ever before.
Changes in sea level reportedly caused Earth's oldest sea turtles to become extinct, providing insight into what could possibly happen to modern-day turtles battling climate change-related sea level rise.
Thanks to rising sea levels caused by climate change, nearly 60 plants in Everglades National Park are critically endangered, highlighting the need for stepped up conservation efforts.
A new study confirms that the odds of storm tides overflowing the Manhattan seawall have risen 20-fold from 170 years ago, and the Big Apple should brace for serious flooding in the future.
