The increase in average sea level. This is widely discussed because this is related to global warming which is probably one of the most talked about topics when it comes to the environment. As the earth warms up, the ice poles that used to be the homes of some animals are already starting to melt away.

This has increased the average sea level. If global warming continues to occur, the time will come when some parts of the world will start to become engulfed in water. Some towns and cities would be part of the lost cities of the world. The other environmental issues are worth talking about too. People should become more informed about the things that they can do to change their actions.

Increase in average sea level-the most widely discussed global impact of climate change is the increase in average sea level. It is expected to rise because glaciers and ice sheets melt and oceans expand as they get warmer.

The global sea level has risen by 100-125 mm over the past 100 years. Much of this could be attributed to temperature increases. It is estimated that the average global surface temperature would rise by 2 c between 1990 and 2100, with the average rate of warming greater than any seen in the past 10 000 years. Awarmer climate would lead to a very high sea-level rise, estimated to be about 500 mm by 2100.
