river’s gonna rise

An international study led by Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore has found that the global mean sea-level rise could exceed one meter by 2100 and five meters by 2300 if global targets on emissions are not achieved.

The study used projections by more than 100 international experts for the global mean sea-level changes under two climate scenarios – low and high emissions. In a scenario where global warming is limited to 2 degree Celsius above pre-industrial levels, the experts estimated a rise of 0.5 meters by 2100 and 0.5 to two meters by 2300. In a high-emissions scenario with 4.5 degree Celsius warming, the experts estimated a larger rise of 0.6 to 1.3 meters by 2100 and 1.7 to 5.6 meters by 2300.
