The United States is one of the world’s largest emitters of carbon. Now they are becoming one of the victims of global warming. By 2050, the country’s sea level will rise by one foot. The lowlands adjacent to the coast will be frequently submerged in water without storms and rainfall.
This information has come up in a research report of the United States government.
At current rates, carbon emissions could increase sea level off the coast of the United States by 2 feet to 1 meter by 2100. By 2050, this height will increase by one foot or thirty centimeters.
The report from the U.S. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) gathered data from climate modeling on the effects of climate change over the next 100 years.
This climate modeling is designed to find out how rising sea levels due to waves, winds or storms affect flooding in the coastal areas of the United States.
The United States is the world’s largest emitter of carbon after China. Environmentalists expect the country to be more proactive in reducing carbon emissions after the report is released.
