Melting ice from Antarctica could raise oceans by one meter before 2100 at current rates of greenhouse gas emissions, doubling previous forecasts for sea level rise, according to a new study. Such an abrupt change would spell disaster for major cities and coastal areas across the globe, forcing hundreds of millions of people to seek higher ground.
Over a longer time scale, the study said the picture would be even grimmer: within 500 years, Earth’s once-frozen continent will have lifted water lines by more than 15 meters, reconfiguring the planet’s coastlines.
