Sea level rise outpacing key predictions
Description: Predictions of how much sea-levels would rise due to climate change, made by a key UN report in 2001, were conservative, say researchers on the eve of the release of the new update of the report. Scientists compared the predictions made in the 2001 report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change with the actual subsequent data. The factors they compared were temperature, sea-level rise and concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. [Source: NewScientist]
