Scientists outline long-term sea-level rise in response to warming of planet
"A new study estimates that global sea levels will rise about 2.3 meters, or more than seven feet, over the next several thousand years for every degree (Celsius) the planet warms."
"The low-lying islands of Kiribati, just a few feet above sea level, are on the front lines of climate change."
Plagued by sea-level rise, Kiribati buys land in Fiji
"Pacific island nation estimates it will be completely submerged within 30 years, displacing more than 100,000 people."
"Funafuti is an atoll on which the capital of the island nation of Tuvalu is located."
Will Tuvalu Disappear Beneath the Sea?
"A thin white smile curves across the blank face of the South Pacific Ocean, more than a mile below. A little lower, the whiteness resolves into an arc of breakers, and the tiny turboprop heads straight for them."
Venice Menace: Famed City is Sinking & Tilting
"Sea-level rise isn't the only thing that has Venice's famous canals rising ever-so-slightly every year: The city is also sinking, a new study shows, in contrast to previous studies that suggested the city's subsidence had stabilized."
10 Treasures We'll Lose as Sea Levels Rise
"Rising temperatures + melting glaciers = higher seas levels. With those surging waters comes the potential for lower-lying land areas around the globe to be washed out, according to climate scientists."
Will Climate Change Swamp the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
"On October 29, 2012, superstorm Sandy barreled toward New York City. Liberty and Ellis Islands, two relatively tiny pieces of land huddled together in the city's harbor, were dangerously exposed."
9 Popular Cities Losing War with Rising Seas
"The world's coastal cities are some of the most beautiful, culturally vibrant and heavily populated urban areas."
Sydney Opera House and Statue of Liberty 'will be lost to sea level rise'
"Nearly one-fifth of world cultural heritage sites would be affected by global warming of a further 3C, scientists warn."

Lol I hear all this shit about global warming and shit and sea level rises but guess what in 2016 NASAs pictures showed more ice in the polar ice caps then ever before recorded so tell me how! The earth has been warming since the beginning of time one reason is as the sun ages it gets hotter because that’s what dying stars like ours do and I love how people always talk about how people like al gore are doing such a service to the world fighting global warming but then leaves these seminars on his private jet lol and everyone producing electric cars did you know to make the batteries and engines for these cars the pollution your putting out is a lot more than any car will ever make
It is unfortunate but the fact is that our Earth has gone through dozens of warming and cooling periods in our time here and we are still recovering from the last Ice Age. In fact Earth has been, naturally, steadily warming for tens of thousands of years now.
The Ice extended down beyond the Great Lakes and it has been receding ever since and pitting more water into our oceans. It's unfortunate for island chained like these but it's not our fault
Although i am not a English speaker, it is interesting...
2 300 years ago, Tuvalu n Kiribati didn't exists. They were under the sea water. The nature is the master...
If a God should exists, it would be no earthquakes n no tsunami.
People in Oceania believe that God will save theirs islands...
Unfortunetely it is just a hope, not the reality...
i live in maldives.the whole sea level stuff is total bullshit theyve been saying that well sink for like 30 years. if anything the seas actually got lower then before ,the whole sinking stuff is just a clever plot by bussinessmen and our criminal politicians to increase tourism arrivals so they profit of this charade. they even imposed a so called carbon tax on smaller independent resorts to cripple them.maldives isnt sinking and maybe never will but we are definately been turned into a giant resort at the expense of the maldivian local people who have to work in lonely uninhabited islands away from their families
Suing people over this is beyond stupid. Wanna sue something sue the sun. Sue car industries for using oil. Sue Harrison Ford for building a car. Oh wait that’s ridiculous but suing a country for something that has been happening for centuries and was going to happen anyways is totally sane. Yeah ok.
And global warming isn’t preventable. It was and is gonna happen. Driving a Tesla isn’t going to save the world. What’s gonna save the world? Nothing. Humans and all creatures must adapt to changes or die. Law of nature if humans can’t handle this well we’ll just die off and a better species will take our place and wonder about the buildings we left behind.
Change is inevitable and fighting change is outright a waste of energy. Don’t fight the waves just ride them.
So if the ice melts then subnautica could happen in the near future or not I guess most land would be higher how would that effect us if there was no more ice and more water and like 2 or 3 islands left in the world you guys are smarter than most of us maybe you should a video on this or not you channel you can do what you want to
Well, I was doing some viewing on climate change and sea levels and ran across your video. I must say that for someone who, claims to be posting science, this post is the farthest thing from science I’ve seen in a long time. You’ve read a paper, or probably the just conclusions, of some climate change alarmists pretending to be scientists and have joined them in their craziness. Your video is so flawed it’s hard to know where to start. Let’s just look at a several errors. Unfortunately for you I have nothing better to do at this time.
It’s obvious you haven’t bothered to look at actual data; the authors of the paper haven’t either. If you had, you would know that tide gauge data at Maldives, from the late 1800s to now, shows around a 3.5mm rise per year and is very consistent. It varies up and down around that mean. When there is an upswing the crazies come out to predict doom. So called “climate scientists” have been doing this for a very long time. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking at temperature, sea level or ice at the poles. They predict catastrophe after catastrophe. These never actually come to pass. That should tip you off that this is nonsense.
You talk about Kiribati as well and show some girl in a rock nearly covered by water. You have no idea what the photo actually is about; it just looks scary. It’s like the polar bear photos we see. The sea level in Kiribati averages around 6.925 meters and has been very consistent. Data goes back to 1992. The lowest since then was in 1998 at 6.6 meters. The high was in 2015 at 7.1 meters. In 2016 the level was 6.8 which is lower than normal. It is now at 6.95; well within the mean but since it has risen from a low level back to a pretty normal level we have alarmists going crazy. The level was the same in 1995, 1997, 2002, 2006 and 2012. Why all the fuss now? And why didn’t we here about these islands growing form 2015 to 2016? Oh yeah that isn’t scary enough.
But it gets nuttier. Your stats on Venice shouldn’t scare anyone. You say the sea level is rising at 2mm/yr and that in 20 years there will be 3.5 inches to contend with. Well 3.5 more inches doesn’t sound very scary. But, your math is off. 2mm times 20 is 40mm which is 1.57 inches or half of what you claim. Gee, everyone better seek higher ground while there’s still time.
Your statements about the eastern US are just nuts to anyone with common sense. But I understand. You’re actually just parroting someone else's craziness. You talk about physics but you don’t seem to understand the principle of water seeking its own level. The east coast can’t possibly rise faster than everywhere else anymore than the water in my bath tub can be higher at one side than the other.
And you blame all of this on global warming. If you were current you would know that this fraud is being exposed. NOAA and NASA have been changing their own data to remove warm and cool periods of the past and create current warming that isn’t actually occurring. Moreover CO2 can’t be driving global temperature. It hasn’t in the past. All of the ice core data sets show that CO2 increases after the Earth warms, not before. It’s an effect of global warming not a cause. The other problem with CO2 causing global warming has to do with the “greenhouse effect”. The atmosphere does not act like a greenhouse, especially with respect to CO2. CO2 absorbs long wave radiation. Prof Knut Angstrom showed that all of the long wave radiation reaching the Earth is already being absorbed. Adding more CO2 will not absorb what isn’t there. That’s like using a sponge to soak up all the water on a table and then using 20 more sponges to try to soak up more.
If this video is anything like others you post, you need to stop saying you’re posting science. You clearly are not. Now don’t forget to point out the nonsense about 97% of scientist agreeing.
And people believe the sun has nothing to do with this? Last century it was called "global cooling." Make up your mind people.
I believe so, because they are not particularly responsible for the dramatic sea rise which threaten's there very security and existence, being they adopted or where forced through colonizational influences to use more carbon based energy sources. They themselves are not capable of spewing enough of a carbon footprint to exercise drastic global climate change.
The easiest thing for them to do is take retired cargo ships, fill them (mostly) with shipping containers, and have those as food production and housing (work/emergency housing)
The ships can be modified, but provide a "base."
Holding back the water is a waste of time and money. You don't have a wall or bucket big enough. They are better off having houses on stilts, with pontoons or something to float with a platform for a possible engine, or able to be "unhinged" from the foundation and float up.
And yes, they Should be able to sue so that people can't Simply Deny it.
stop threatening the people with god's weather/climate system....the people living on these islands came & gone but the islands are still there so...stop the threat tactics & enjoy god's given life lol
Planet earth has been around over 4 billion years, maybe this has nothing to do with the Liberal term Global warming. Maybe the planet is actually taking itself back. It wasn’t this way 4 billion years ago, the oceans were a lot higher then, This Global warming agenda was set in motion to make certain political figures a lot of money.. There is no real evidence that support the claims of that garbage.. If you live near the coast and you keep getting flooded, why the hell do you continue to whine about it.. Use some common sense after the first 5 times you rebuild.. Stupid
BIG PROBLEM BOTH FRESH WATER AND CARBON DIOXIDE ACIDIFY WATER. THEREFORE MORE PLANKTON WILL DIE AND THE OCEANS FOOD BASE IS ON THE DECLINE BY ONE PERCENT PER YEAR. JUST DO THE MATH AND FIGURE IT OUT. WHAT DO YOU THINK WILL HAPPEN WHEN THE OCEANS TAKE A DUMP ???
I don't believe in global warming. Yes, it's true the earth is warming, but it's in a life circle. Many years ago I would've imagined the sea levels were around the same heights, and they'll come down. I'm sure of it. Tell me when I'm proven wrong I'm wrong.
there is an e 100 tune to run straight methanol thru engines and a catalyst owned by you guessed it GM and thee infamous rocafeller monopoly gas companies thing is it uses co2 and water to creater methanol methanol burns cleanly and leaves h20 and 02 soooo if someone created a super gaso tank with this tool and a mini condenser to purculate water we might have save breathing machines but tsk tsk greedy elitist want to push the world to the last cent Im js people a swedish college created said catalyst look it up guys might just save the world and strip power from the rich
Kiribati and Tuvalu are disappraring due to the north westerly drift of the pacific plate over uplifted oceanic crust and consequent subsidence on the north western side. In fact 90% of their islands are now submerged, most of which occured prior to human habitation. Same for Hawaii. This can be clearly demonstrated on google earth. Venice is subsiding due sediment compression. The 1.9mm annual rise in sea level is consistent with expected rates as we approach the peak of the current 4th order interglacial. This is far less than the average rise of 1m per 100 years which occured during the Holocene period. if you wish to campaign for clean energy and protest agsinst airborne pollution due to greenhouse gas emmissions I respect you for doing so. But please do this robustly and scientifically. The relationship of anthropogenic greenhouse gasses to Holocene sea level rise and the dissappearence of pacific islands is (as yet) unfounded and in contradiction to well established, measurable and proven geological mechanisms which have been studied and reported for nearly a century.
Hoi: A couple problems with your post. First, while antarctica sea ice was increasing up until 2016, land ice (the ice that affects sea levels most) there has been decreasing for a long time. Secondly, recently, even sea ice there is now decreasing; the trend has reversed.
Oh, and if you're talking about volcanic eruptions increasing atmospheric CO2, increasing the greenhouse effect & thus global warming, volcanoes actually have a net cooling effect; their aerosols reflect UV rays more than their CO2 traps infrared radiation.
ANDREW HARTLEY melting glaciers dont make the sea rise in fact antarctica is gaining ice and the reason why sea levels rise is because of tectonic plates that are moving and volcano eruptions together with humans using groundwater that has been there for thousands of years and dumping it in the sea since most countries dont reuse their water
if u look at the build up climate change over the past few centuries the climate has been getting hotter and even if all the countrys on the planet became completely invirement freindly the water would still continue to rise so nomatter what u do u cant stop nature
Sea level rising is due to human activities alright, but there's NO SUCH THING AS GLOBAL WARMING! If you look and how many times the governments around the world have been doing so called NUCLEAR BOMB TESTINGS, especially the USA in the SOUTH PACIFIC over a thousand times...that would MAKE MORE SENSE TO ME! Plus they got people SELLING SAND like they do illegal drugs, using up a significant amount of sand off of many of the shorelines...that is a MAJOR FACTOR as to why the sea is roaring violently and UNBALANCED. Jeremiah 5:22 talks about how God Almighty created SAND AS A BARRIER TO HOLD THE SEA BACK. The importance of SAND to the echo system is extremely significant and with all the man made infrastructures that NEED SAND in order to be build using up all the BARRIER FOR THE OCEAN, no wonder the SEA LEVELS APPEAR TO BE RISING...IT'S THROWN OUT OF BALANCE!
It's not about just some islands. It's happening and affecting all around the world. I'm from Bangladesh and ours is the most threaten country due to global warming or so called "climate change". Nations like USA, UAE have to be more responsible to minimize the "climate change" as sooner as possible..
It's not that simple. Many of the biggest cities in the world are located on coastlines and tidal rivers. Sure....they might have space but that space is already in use for agriculture etc and the infrastructure for shifting millions of people into just doesn't exist.
Kim Caliri help isn't going to possible, you'll have hostility towards the climate refugees from people in every country. Especially Right wing populist leaders rising up all over the world like Trump. It will be better to sue so they can use the compensation to make arrangements elsewhere.
Venice is sinking for various reasons. Subsidance from pumping up too much fresh water from the aquifer below the city. The city now pipes in fresh water from the mainland. The ship channel dredged through the laggon to a mainland port allows more sea water to penetrate the lagoon and has facilitated flooding. Also the city was built on marsh land and the weight of all the stone on top of the mud has been causing setteling for centuries. Climate change is just the icing on the cake so to speak.
Hasnt anyone ever heard about (or remember) the geologic phenomena known as SUBDUCTION?????????? The ocean ISNT RISING, THE LAND IS SINKING IN SOME PLACES!!!!! If the ocean were REALLY RISING coastlines ALL OVER THE WORLD - INCLUDING AL GORE'S OCEAN FRONT PROPERTY IN CALIFORNIA - WOULD BE INUNDATED !!!! THEY ARE NOT!
Hey D news something tells me that those islands are dealing with severe erosion problems, not "global warming" or climate change. Second I live on the eastern sea board where sea level rise is supposed to be 4x the average and the sea level is definitely not rising. If this "sea level rise" was real we would have felt its effects a long time ago, probably during the industrial revolution when factories had no emissions regulations and no one cared about the climate.
Im not saying im right, but sever erosion problems stwm from storms. If the ocean levels rise by "7 ft" (which on a global scale is a masive amount of water", "storms and storm surges" are going to be more intense leading to more sever erosion of landscapes.
It's properly pronounced "Kiribes" because their language spells the S sound using the letters TI. So one of their islands is called Kiritimati because that's how they spell the English word Christmas. Kiribati is the native interpretation of the English name, the Gilbert Islands.
