Global Warming

GLOBAL WARMING WOES

ABC News, with Diane Sawyer, recently presented a story (above) about recent catastrophic flooding in Australia and Brazil.
According to the Climate Institute, "Most of the world's coastal cities were established during the last few millennium, a period when global sea level has been near constant. Since the mid-nineteenth century, sea level has been rising, likely primarily as a result of human-induced climate change. During the 20th century, sea level rose about 15-20 centimeters (roughly 1.5 to 2.0 mm/year), with the rate at the end of the century greater than over the early part of the century."
