The US could see a century’s worth of sea rise in just 30 years


The US could see a century’s worth of sea rise in just 30 years. 

The sea level has raised so much and so quick in a matter of time. “The seas lapping against America’s coastlines are rising ever faster and will be 10 to 12 inches higher by the year 2050, with major Eastern cities hit regularly with costly floods even on sunny days, a government report says.” 

Because of climate change the rise of the sea will be more seen or noticed by the nations coastlines. “Because of climate change, the nation’s coastlines on average will see as much sea level rise in the next 30 years as they did in the previous century , said lead author William Sweet, an oceanographer for NOAA’s National Ocean Service.” 

Geoscientist, Andrea Dutton, will be taking reports of the ocean as the years pass. “The report “is the equivalent of NOAA sending a red flag up” about accelerating the rise in sea levels, said University of Wisconsin-Madison geoscientist Andrea Dutton, a specialist in sea level rise who wasn’t part of the federal report. The coastal flooding the U.S. is seeing now “will get taken to a whole new level in just a couple of decades.”

In my opinion i think that if we keep taking record of the sea level rising we should be good but its important to be safe and keep taking record.
