The Consequences of Rising Sea Levels
Immediate negative consequences of rising sea levels are:
Erosion of coastal areas,
8 of the 10 largest cities are located in coastal regions just above sea level,
And salinization of freshwater reserves.
Scientists of the research organization Climate Central have calculated that a global warming of 4 degrees Celsius thus endangers up to 500 million people worldwide. Asian coasts would be the most affected regions by this scenario.
