New research conducted independently by scientists from England, China and Denmark anticipates a 1 meter sea level rise in the next 100 years. This is nearly three times the previous estimate made by the United Nations International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), whose 2007 calculations did not take into account the dynamic effects of melting ice sheets.
One of the recent studies conducted by the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark evaluated sea levels from the 1700s to the present.
Their results forecast a sea level rise of between 0.7 and 1.2 meters during the next 100 years, with the variation being determined by humanity’s actions to curb greenhouse gas emissions.
International scientists, we are grateful for your efforts that further clarify the increasingly perilous state of our planet. Let us all join now while there is still time to protect our shared Earthly abode.
Addressing the gravity of this dire situation during an interview for the September 2009 edition of The House Magazine, Supreme Master Ching Hai reminded that it may be alleviated through humanity’s adoption of nobler standards.
