Environmental Article: Burning Fossil Fuels could lead to 60-meter sea level rise

SeaLevelRise051315

This article reminds me of the virtual sea-level rise site we looked at in class. If carbon consumption and emission continues at its current rate for the next 60 to 80 years, the West Antarctic ice sheet will become unstable. By the end of the millennium, sea level could rise 30 meters. Pretty scary to think about that much sea level rise in a relatively short amount of time.
