Rising Sea Levels

Rising Sea Levels

The United States is expected to see a century’s worth of sea rise in just 30 years.

 

America’s coastline is rising faster than ever before. The coastline is expected to be 10 to 12 inches higher by 2050.

 

We can see this freight train coming from more than a mile away,” Dutton said.

 

The sea is rising because of global warming. As glaciers and ice sheets melt it is adding more water to our ocean.

 

Because of melting sea ice, it is likely that more polar bears will soon starve, warns a new study that discovered the large carnivores need to eat 60 percent more than anyone had realized,” said Stephen.

 

Sea rise is happening more in certain places.

 

“Sea level rises more in some places than others because of sinking land, currents and water from ice melt,” said Seth.

 

We need to fix global warming so that our sea levels do not rise that much in 30 years. If we do not fix the problem it can cause a dagger to animal habitats.
