Sea Level Rise Projections until 2100, a nonlinear response?

39 ratings | 8297 views
Past sea level rise is not captured by models yet, in particular the response from ice sheets in Antarctica due to global warming. Projections therefore can often be regarded to potentially underestimate future sea level rise. For example, Overpeck et al. (2006), and Hansen (2007) suggest possibilities which could eventually lead to a nonlinear response from ice sheets - accelerating the current observed sea level rise. Projections assessed by the US National Research Council (2010, pages 243-250), including Overpeck et al. 2006 http://books.nap.edu/openbook.php?record_id=12782&page=243 James Hansen on Sea Level Rise (2007) http://iopscience.iop.org/1748-9326/2/2/024002 Sea level in the 5th IPCC report (Rahmstorf, 2013) http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2013/10/sea-level-in-the-5th-ipcc-report/ IPCC AR 2013 sea level rise discussion http://www.climatechange2013.org/images/uploads/WGIAR5_WGI-12Doc2b_FinalDraft_Chapter13.pdf Sea level rise map 6 meters NASA https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:6m_Sea_Level_Rise.jpg Music: The Kyoto Connection - The Way Of Waking Up (feat.

If you want to stop global warming, stop eating meat (and dairy) Cutting CO2 emissions will not be enough, if people keep eating meat ... the biggest contributor to climate change.
