The Dangers of Sea Level Rise

The Dangers of Sea Level Rise

By Hussein Alnomani

Some people might not take climate change seriously because they are not directly affected by it. But there are facts and mounting evidences proving climate change is a serious problem that our planet faces and can cause extreme damage. One is sea level rise. Records show that the sea level has risen 17 cm (6.7 inches). Sea level rise can be a result of two things. The water that comes from melting ice and the expansion of water when the temperature increases. The chart accompanying this post tracks sea level since 1993 and uses data from a satellite to show a noticeable rise. Such evidences must be used by authorities to educate people about how serious climate change is and fighting climate change will ultimately protect people who live on this planet.
