Major Sea Rise ‘Now Inevitable’


Major Sea Rise ‘Now Inevitable’


Minimum rise of 10 inches to occur regardless of climate action, scientists
find.

     Research based on satellite measurements of ice
losses from Greenland and the shape of the ice cap from 2000-19 has
allowed scientists to calculate how the climate crisis has pushed

the ice sheet from an equilibrium where snowfall matches the ice lost.

They found that
a minimum 10.6in sea-level rise is inevitable regardless of action to
limit carbon emissions after 110tn tonnes of the Greenland ice cap melted. A
multi-metre sea-level rise also appears likely as the trajectory of
environmental damage continues.
