The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has been keeping a close eye on rising sea levels and has released several reports outlining the forecasts for the future of our world’s oceans.

New research paints a pretty grim picture for the Himalayan glaciers, saying they will continue to shrink even if temperatures rebound to normal.

Rising Temperatures Could Lead To Sea Levels Rising Three Feet Or More

A rapid response between global temperatures and ice volume/sea-level that could lead to sea-levels rising by over 3 feet have been revealed by a new study from the University of Southampton.

Anthropogenic Climate Change Leads To Melting Glaciers And Rising Sea Level
2012-11-14 15:22:41

Since 1900 the global sea level has risen by approximately 20 cm. Melting glaciers are one of the causes – along with warming and thereby expanding sea water, melting Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, and changing terrestrial water storage in dammed lakes and groundwater reservoirs.

Greenland Could Be Affected By Warming Temperatures

Climate Change
2013-04-01 11:05:27

Climate change is a substantial and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods of time ranging from decades to millions of years. It might be a change in the average weather conditions, or in the distribution of weather around the average conditions. Climate change is a result of factors that include oceanic processes, biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received buy Earth, volcanic eruptions, and plate tectonics, and human induced alterations...

Current Sea Level Rise
2013-04-01 10:39:21

The sea levels all around the world are rising. Current sea-level rise has the potential to affect human populations and the natural environment. Two key factors have contributed to the observed sea level rise. The first is thermal expansion: as the ocean water warms, it expands. The second is from the influence of land-based ice because of increased melting. The major store of water on land is found in the glaciers and the ice sheets. The rising of sea levels is one of several lines of...

If you live Honolulu Hawaii or the surrounding low elevation area’s this is what you can roughly expect to see with impacts of the three features below when it comes to your heating and cooling budget. The above graph shows the situations that occurred during previous phases of all three events such as normal conditions along with EL-Nino and La-Nina. During a normal cycle it is easy to see that the cooling degree days during March were around 355.5 days. During the same month of March...
