The Paris Agreement was adopted to address the negative impacts of climate change and it includes agreements from countries to cut their national gas emissions to make the world a safer place.
This rise in sea-level could be devastating to the environment … with consequences such as destructive erosion, wetland flooding, soil contamination, and loss of animal habitats.
Higher sea levels are also matching up with more dangerous hurricanes and typhoons — contributing to more powerful storm surges.
The study, led by Nanyang Technological University, used projections by more than 100 international experts for the global mean sea-level changes under two different climate scenarios.
In the first scenario, global warming was limited to 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. In this case, experts estimated a rise of 0.5 metres by 2100..
In the second scenario, however, global greenhouse gas emissions were high and led to 4.5 degrees Celsius of warming. In this case, the experts estimated a larger rise of 0.6 to 1.3 metres by 2100.
Scary, huh? The good news: There’s still time for us to make changes.
At Karmagawa, we’re committed to protecting the environment and all its creatures. That’s why it’s crucial to share important information like this sea-level study out to as many people as possible — and you can help make it happen.
Also, we’re now creating courses to not only raise funds for our non-profit — but to help our followers gain valuable skills.
