The global sea level to 2300 year may climb to 15 meters

The study showed that global sea levels could increase by a huge 15 metres if greenhouse gas emissions remain high.

This will cause catastrophic problems for Earth’s population, because the coastal city will go under water.

Researchers from the United States and Singapore reported that average sea level could rise by nearly 2.5 meters (8 feet) by 2100 and 15 meters (50 feet) by the year 2300. However, scientists recognize the “uncertainty” associated with sea level rise.

“We know a lot about past and future changes in sea level, but much remains uncertain, both because of human behavior, and the laws of physics. But uncertainty is not a reason to ignore the problem. A thorough description of what is known and what is uncertain, is crucial for risk management of sea level rise for the coasts around the world,” said study co-author Dr. Robert Kopp of Rutgers University in the United States.

According to scientists, the main cause of sea level rise in the 20th century associated with anthropogenic global warming. According to the study, 11 percent of the 7.6 billion people in the world who live in areas at altitudes of less than 10 metres above sea level, exposed to risks. This will lead to problems for the economy, infrastructure and ecosystems all over the world. Serious changes await many areas of Europe, Asia and the Americas.

The ocean level is rising all the time, during which he was under accurate observation – the end of XX century. Since the beginning of the XXI century, the ocean became deeper by about 6 inches. Residents of the coral atolls of the Pacific are at risk of losing their land.
Other recent studies have predicted that 1.5 to 5.4% of the world population may be subject to flooding by the year 2300, depending on what action we will take.

“These results indicate the importance and benefits of mitigating climate change in vulnerable environments such as small Islands or low-lying populated deltas of the rivers,” said Dr. Ivan Haigh from the University of Southampton in the UK.
