There is a lot of talk about people’s homes being under water these days when it comes to their mortgages but what about literally being under water?
Sea Levels are rising. Here’s what Climate Central has to say about it:
“Global warming has raised sea level about eight inches since 1880, and the rate of rise is accelerating. Scientists expect 20 to 80 more inches this century, a lot depending upon how much more heat-trapping pollution humanity puts into the sky. This study makes mid-range projections of 1 to 8 inches by 2030, and 4 to 19 inches by 2050, depending upon location across the contiguous 48 states.”
Climate Central has created an interactive map (picture above) to show what these rising sea levels mean for our coastal town. You can check the map out by clicking here and find out if your house might be at the bottom of the sea one day.
