Sea Level Rise
The catastrophic consequences of Climate Change or Global Warming include sea level rise with all the frightening consequences that holds for the world’s coastal cities.
As the world’s oceans heat up, the water temperature rises. This increases sea levels, because warm water expands and because the warmer waters are causing the melting of glaciers and polar ice.
Increasing sea levels become most apparent to residents of coastal cities at times of king tides and extreme water events.
