Not only are ocean levels rising, the rate at which they are rising is increasing.
Worst case predictions suggest that the ocean levels could be upwards of 2.2 meters (7.2 feet) higher by the end of this century than they were at the start of it.
With the oceans having more water, more land is underwater.
634 million people worldwide are at high risk of flooding from the rising water levels. In the United States, close to 30% of the population lives near a coastline in cities such as New York, Miami and Los Angeles.
To have a better outcome, we need to act now. It’s not too late.
