Arctic climate feedbacks: global implications

Source(s):  World Wide Fund For Nature (WWF)

This WWF report addresses sea-level rise and the associated flooding of coastal regions that may affect more than a quarter of the world’s population.

This report is the first-of-its kind assessment incorporating the fate of the ice sheets of Greenland and West Antarctica into global sea level projections. It concludes that sea-levels will very likely rise by more than one meter by 2100 -- more than twice the amount given in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s 2007 assessment that had excluded the contribution of ice sheets from their projection.
