NASA, Climate Body provide interactive map on rising seas: Check if your coastal area is in peril

NASA’s interactive online tool, along with providing snapshots of rising sea levels in the decades to come, enables users to focus on the effects of different processes that drive sea-level rise. Check it out.

KEY HIGHLIGHTS

Unless mankind makes a sincere and robust effort to stall the increase in greenhouse gases, the Earth’s climate is in peril.

The IPCC has provided global-scale assessments of Earth’s climate every five to seven years since 1988, focusing on changes in temperature, ice cover, greenhouse gas emissions, and sea level across the planet.

Now NASA provides an interactive tool based on that data and lets us know how much the sea water may rise in which decade.
