NASA predicts a dangerous sudden rise in sea levels

Before recently, the best predictions we had were from the UN’s 2013 International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which suggested a one- to three-feet rise by the end of the century. Michael Freilich, director of NASA ‘s Earth Science Division, described the satellite technology used to gather the newest data, “The instruments are so sensitive that if they were mounted on a commercial jetliner flying at 40,000 feet (1,200 meters) they could detect the bump caused by a dime lying flat on the ground.” The oceans have already risen nearly three inches since 1992, when NASA’s data collection began.
