What do rising sea levels mean for the future? Ashley Fleming shares an animated graphic that explores the possible outcome

Sea levels around the world are rising, and at increasing rates, so what does this mean for the future?


This animated graphic was put together to address that very question. It looks at the coastlines of the US and illustrates clearly and dramatically just how far inland the sea will reach in the coming years.


This is based on the current rate of climate change and sea rise, which means that there is still time to do something about this world-changing issue. But will we?
