The Rise in Sea Levels
After all the ice and glaciers have melted away, the next problem will be the rise in sea levels. There is now more volume of water all around us. In fact, ¾ of the Earth’s surface will be brimming. As the globe enters another phase, the season will change into summer. There will be more thermal heat to beat down on a vast expanse of water. The volume of evaporation and moisture will then be greater creating low- pressure areas and depressions in the atmosphere.
The rise in sea level will gravely affect those who have built their towns and cities, and mega-cities in low-lying coastal areas. There are those who have formed their habitats in deltas and major rivers as well as nations thriving in their small islands. Scientists do not see a bright future since no amount of green house prevention can undo what is slowly taking place.
Scientists predicted even before that there will be rains, downpours, and storms and strong winds brought by the Earth’s spinning motion will entangle and trap one of these low- pressure areas and there will typhoons, cyclones, “tsunamis", and hurricanes. Scientific projections have it that even just a middle range occurrence will have devastating effect in terms of flooding.
Unfortunately, these natural occurrences have all transpired and are still being experienced globally.
