In contrast, for a scenario with strong emissions reductions, experts expect a sea-level rise of 40-60 centimeters by 2100 and 60-100 centimeters by 2300. The survey was conducted by a team of scientists from the USA and Germany. "While the results for the scenario with climate mitigation suggest a good chance of limiting future sea-level rise to one meter, the high emissions scenario would threaten the survival of some coastal cities and low-lying islands," says Stefan Rahmstorf from the...

Atmospheric Cooling Could Be Result Of Oceanic Heat Absorption
2013-11-01 08:41:05

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online The apparent stabilization of atmospheric temperatures over the past decade -- often cited by climate change skeptics as evidence that global warming has slowed down or stopped -- is actually caused by a radical increase in the amount of heat being absorbed by the oceans, according to a new study. Yair Rosenthal, a climate scientist at Rutgers University, and colleagues report that the ocean is now absorbing heat 15 times faster...

And new studies only pile on to the growing evidence of how climate change is altering the shape of this planet. Scientists presented findings at the Meeting of the Americas in Cancún, Mexico about how the snow and ice covering Mount Everest is retreating. Glaciers on the mountain have shrunk by 13 percent in the last 50 years and the snow line has shifted...
