Governments limiting global warming

  • According to a new study, sea levels could rise by 2.3 meters for every degree Celsius increase in global temperatures.

    Although scientists have said that global warming is the reason for the melting of mountain glaciers, which is in turn responsible for the increase in sea level, a few scientists have concluded that global warming has occurred because of natural causes instead of human actions. Despite these claims, about 200 governments have agreed to limit global warming to less than 2 degrees Celsius and also plan to come to a deal by the end of 2015 in order to curb emissions. 

    It is said that one of the biggest impacts by the rise in the sea-level would result in storms being more destructive in the future. Moreover, scientists have concluded that sea level might increase by 2 meters by the end of the year 2100 and that would result in the swamping of land from Bangladesh to Florida.
