Sea Change


Climate change is making sea levels rise. But because of the way oceans, land and ice interact, this change would not be even across the globe. As glaciers in Greenland, Antarctica and elsewhere continue to melt, by 2100 sea levels around the equator would rise up 150 per cent more than the rest of the world, while the sea levels will fall at the poles. The worst hit would be Western Australia and low-lying Pacific islands like Honolulu, Hawaii and Seychelles.
