By the end of the 21st century, more than 1,400 cities in the United States will be under water


There is plenty of evidence that it was human intervention is one of the main causes of global climate change of the Earth. More recently, extreme temperatures, hurricanes, fires, melting ice caps and flood the relic on a global scale, most would explain the vagaries of nature. However, a lot of research on this point show that global warming is not a hypothesis, but a real challenge to the 21st century and see it does not need special equipment and tricky calculations, enough of their own eyes. According to NASA , the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in recent times is breaking all records that have been installed millions of years ago, and in 2012 was the ninth in the list of the warmest since 1850. It has since started to be conducted documented observation of the Earth’s climate.

According to the latest report by the National Academy of Sciences of the USA (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, PNAS) as a result of sea-level rise under water will not only Miami, as previously predicted by experts of NASA.

According to Dr. Benjamin Strauss (Benjamin Strauss), greenhouse gases, which humanity filled the atmosphere may in the next few decades, cause a sea level rise of 1.3 meters, and it will be enough to flood the 316 coast-town USA with a total of 3 6 million people.

Benjamin Strauss says that for every increase in average global temperature of 0,55 ° C sea level will rise by 1.3 meters. Building on the projected data growth rates of CO2 emissions and an increase in average global temperature, which depends on the level of emissions, Mr. Strauss has created a map that clearly demonstrates exactly what the city will be under water, and as the sea level will rise by 2100. If the calculations are correct Benjamin, by the end of the 21st century, global sea level would rise by 7 meters. As a result, more than 1,400 cities in which at the moment there are about 18 million people, will be under water.

At the same time, Strauss notes that his model does not take into account the invention of humanity, which in the future will be able to protect the area from the coast-water. But while the luminaries of science did not come up, is to look at how the reduction or increase of greenhouse gases in the future may change the climate and the environment.
