The kind of research results that make you wonder what humans can really- and effectively- do to guard against rising sea levels. New research shows global sea level has been rising two and a half times faster the past 20 years than it had in the last eight decades of the 20th century. Rutgers researcher Robert Kopp and colleagues from Harvard did the study. Professor Kopp told NJTV News Correspondent Michael Hill that more rapidly rising temperatures over the last three decades have contributed to the quicker rates of sea level rise… According to Kopp, this rate of sea level rise hasn’t been seen before in human history. He said geological records show periods of significantly greater sea level rise, but not for thousands of years and back then, there was still a large ice sheet in North America.
