Ocean levels could rise by as much as 5 feet in the next 100 years, drowning major coastal cities all over the world. This is much more than the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) forecasted a year ago and could mean the end of island nations and low-lying countries such as Bangladesh, where 80 to 90% of the population lives within a few feet of sea level.
In BBC News, Richard Black reports quotes climatologist Svetlana Jevrejeva as saying, "The rapid rise in the coming years is associated with the rapid melting of ice sheets."
