Major Sea Level Rise in Near Future | Jason Briner | TEDxBuffalo
 
18:54
If you want to know what the changing climate is doing to the earth, ask someone who's been there. Jason Briner has been above the Arctic Circle more than 35 times. He takes the big topic of global warming and shows you what it's doing to a very important place in this talk. Jason P. Briner is an Associate Professor of Geology at the University at Buffalo. Briner’s research expertise lies in glaciers and climate, specifically in Arctic regions. His passion for Arctic environs obviously explains why, in 2005, Briner moved to Buffalo, NY. Briner has been above the Arctic Circle more than 35 times for his research, in the remote corners of Alaska, Arctic Canada, Greenland and Norway. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Sea level rise change predictions

New research suggests that some of the early data of sea level rise as a result of climate change may be skewed. The 1991 eruption of Mt. Pinatubo may have led to biased results, but researchers still believe sea levels could rise 20 feet by 2100.

Scientist Alex Gardner explains Climate and Sea Level Rise (Feb 2017)
 
01:11:58
Earth scientist Alex Gardner reveals a world of rapid change as seen through the eyes of a NASA glaciologist. Glaciers and ice sheets hold massive amounts of freshwater locked up as ice. These stores of freshwater feed water supplies that support millions of people around the world, raise global sea levels, and can even change the rate of Earth’s rotation. It is now nearly certain that as Earth’s atmosphere and oceans warm over the coming centuries, glaciers and ice sheets will continue to retreat and sea levels will continue to rise. The big question now is at what rate and by how much? The von Kármán Lecture Series: 2017 https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/events/lectures_archive.php?year=2017&month=2 Speaker: Alex S.

How Earth Would Look If All The Ice Melted
 
02:45
We learned last year that many of the effects of climate change are irreversible. Sea levels have been rising at a greater rate year after year, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates they could rise by another meter or more by the end of this century. As National Geographic showed us in 2013, sea levels would rise by 216 feet if all the land ice on the planet were to melt. This would dramatically reshape the continents and drown many of the world's major cities.

Global sea level rise: climate change already submerged 5 islands in Solomon archipelago - TomoNews
 
01:20
ISABEL, SOLOMON ISLANDS — A new study led by University of Queensland researchers says that changes in global climate and the subsequent sea level rise has already led to the loss of multiple Pacific islands. The team of Australian scientists, after sifting through decades worth of historical insight from locals as well as time series aerial and satellite imagery, say that Isabel, one of the main islands of the Solomon archipelago, has already lost five of its reef islands. These islands were once densely vegetated but weren't populated, reported the Washington Post. However, another six islands on Isabel have declined in area by more than 20 percent between 1947 and 2014. Meanwhile, residents of the island of Nuatambu have been forced to relocate to the nearby main island of Choiseul because of flooding. Of the dozens of homes that once stood on Nuatambu, at least 11 have already been swept away by the rising waters. One town on the Solomon Islands' Taro Island began planning to relocate all of its residents in 2014 because the sea level rise threatens to swallow the land. According to the study, while the global average rate of sea level rise has been 3.2 millimeters per year since 1993, the Solomon Islands have experienced an average rise by about 7 to 10 millimeters per year since 1994. The research team, who published their study in the journal Environmental Research Letters on Friday, discovered that the sea level rise has destroyed villages that have existed since the 1930s, and has displaced numerous communities. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Our Rising Oceans (VICE on HBO: Season 3, Episode 1)
 
42:52
Our oceans are rising. With human use of hydrocarbons skyrocketing, waters around the globe are getting hotter and, now, this warm sub-surface water is washing into Antarctica’s massive western glaciers causing the glaciers to retreat and break off. Antarctica holds 90% of the world’s ice and 70% of its freshwater, so if even a small fraction of the ice sheet in Antarctica melts, the resulting sea level rise will completely remap the world as we know it – and it is already happening. In the last decade, some of the most significant glaciers here have tripled their melt rate. VICE founder Shane Smith travels to the bottom of the world to investigate the instability of the West Antarctic ice sheet and to see first hand how the continent is melting -- and VICE follows the rising oceans to Bangladesh for a glimpse into the world's underwater future. From the UN Climate conference to the People's Climate March to the forces that deny the science of global climate change, this special extended episode covers all sides of the issue and all corners of the globe, ending with a special interview with Vice President Joe Biden.

Contributors to sea-level rise
 
02:59
The physical processes causing global sea-level rise are highlighted in the animation. The main causes are thermal expansion of oceans, as they accumulate the excess heat caused by greenhouse gas emissions, the melting of ice from the ice sheets and glaciers, as well as changes in land water storage such as lakes. Regionally, sea level changes vary quite dramatically. The reasons for this are different to the global causes of sea-level changes and include changes to sea water density, influenced by salinity and temperature.

Climate change: California sea levels may rise higher than other places around the world - TomoNews
 
06:44
SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA — Researchers from the California Ocean Protection Council authority is warning that melting ice shelves in Antarctica could cause sea levels to rise, with the most dramatic increase expected in California. According to a report by the council’s Science Advisory Team, for every foot of global sea-level rise caused by the melting West Antarctic, sea levels will rise approximately 1.25 feet in the California coast. Researchers theorize that due to Earth’s rotation and gravitational pull, melting ice in Antarctica — particularly in the western portion — is pulled toward the California coast. This makes rising sea levels more dramatic in the region. In 2100, sea levels could rise as high as 6.9 feet in San Francisco and 7.1 feet in La Jolla. The council plans to hold a series of workshops and propose measures to address the danger of rising sea levels. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Crying dog breaks the internet’s heart — but this sad dog story has a happy ending" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4prKTN9bYQc -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

How much is sea level rising? Climate Change Impact on Mumbai & Kolkata

Please Like, Share and Subscribe our channel. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Climate Change: Vital Signs of the Planet: Sea Level the same all over the world? The news that is available to the people is mostly rumor, and you also know that there are no feet of rumor, that is why it spreads very fast. But global warming is such a thing which we can do to sweat. Do not know if you will ever notice or not. Miami is the city and it used to be all around this island. But this was the red plate which was also land on the same, but due to global warming, the water level of the sea came up so much, that is, according to the report, 20 feet water has come up there. So this is not just about here, but on every seafront of the world there is something like this on our earth. If India speaks of the UN, by 2050, more than 4 million people in India are at risk. Especially the people of Mumbai and Kolkata city. Together, Bangladesh and China will be the same. The Dhaka-Dhaka and Shanghai city of China will also be covered. Science also has indicated about the destruction of the Earth. That day is not far away when the Earth's dust will start from the 2 million 24 thousand miles of the earth with a moat in the sea. Because the melting snow of the Pole region has caused trouble to emerge. If you remember, a few weeks ago, a 5800 sq. Km large frost had broken apart in Antarctica. This is not a small thick iceberg, this iceberg is 4 times bigger than the heart of India. Its estimated weight is more than 1000 million tonnes. Due to the separation from Antarctica, this iceberg will now roam the ocean and there will be a danger for ships coming out there. NASA's Aqua Moody's Satellite has been monitoring the iceberg for a long time. Because in Antarctica, the crack was seen in the ice some time ago. Which means that at any place, a big piece of ice will be separated from Antarctica. Increasing temperature has caused an increase in the incidence of ice fragmentation in Antarctica. In the year 2000, ice fragment of 11000 square kilometers was separated, which was the biggest event till date. His name was A-68. If the look of the threat was seen in the iceberg, the Titanic ship collided with such a piece of ice and was devastated. Now the iceberg that breaks apart, keeps roaming in the water of the sea, and by changing its place again and again it will melt. From which the fragment of a big ice melt will come from the sea level of the countries near the equator. And many small island insides in the Pacific Ocean and Indian Ocean will go to Dubai. Scientists in the North Antarctica research team say that in the state of the big ice only five big ice pieces remain. From that place called "Markham Ice Shield" was separated from the island of Ellesmere in August. In the last decade, due to the rest of the Earth, Antarctica has increased the temperature by a lot of speed, which is a huge problem. Because people have developed indiscriminate development, they have created problems for the earth itself. And if all the pigs in the Dhruv state get piggy in one go, then the entire sea level of the world will increase to 60 ft and also the coastal cities will be submerged in the water. By 2050, Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia and the Philippines have the potential to increase the sea level, and all of them are 5 million 80 million, that is why many people are at risk. But more than that, most of the government in the world is ignoring this issue. As the time passes, the earth will continue to dwindle, and the sea will continue to grow. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Music by : Fanfare for Space by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/...)

Waters of Paradise - Adapting to Climate Change in the Maldives
 
11:33
The Maldives is one of the wonders of the world. Located in the Indian Ocean and made of 1192 coral islands, it is also the world’s lowest lying country. The highest natural point is just 2.4 meters above sea level. Today, one of the main problems for Maldivians is water. And it is likely to get worse with Climate Change. While Northern islands face drinking water shortages during the dry season, from April to May, most Southern islands face a different problem: flooding.The United Nations Development Programme with support from the Green Climate Fund is supporting the Government of the Maldives, to ensure that most vulnerable islands have year-round access to potable water and that they can cope with floods on their own. Nearly half of its population lives in Male, the capital of the islands, in less than 1.4 square kilometers. The rest is spread over 186 small, scattered islands. Maldivians have lived for centuries from coconuts and fishing. There are no rivers or streams on any of the islands. Except for Malé and a handful of other islands, most islands rely on rain for drinking water. Islands affected by floods and shortages of potable water receive relief from the capital island Malé. Transportation costs are high with the Maldives scattered geography. This makes emergency relief very expensive for a government already struggling economically. Climate change is expected to bring stronger storms, and longer periods without rainfall. A rise in the ocean’s temperature and acidification has had devastating effects on coral reefs, affecting tourism and fisheries, both critical to the livelihoods of most Maldivians. Damaged reefs also function less effectively as a first line of defense against sea swells and flooding. Until the nineties, Maldivians used groundwater for drinking. But over the past decade, the groundwater of most islands got contaminated. The freshwater lenses of most islands was badly affected by the Tsunami of 2004 and poorly planned urbanization. As a result, today, rainwater, together with water produced using desalination and expensive bottled water are the only potable water options. In the past ten years, the National Disasters Management Center in Malé had to send emergency shipments of water to about half of the 186 inhabited islands during the dry season. An expensive solution that sometimes can take up to two weeks to arrive. Most households have one tank of 2500L and fill it by collecting rain from their roofs. Bigger families might even have 2 or 3 tanks, since one is not enough for them to make it through the dry season. When water supply ends, households cope by borrowing from neighbors, by buying bottled water or by receiving water relief from Male.

Climate Change Formula:  Rising Sea Levels + Coastal Megacities = Forced Migration | Parag Khanna
 
06:13
If global temperatures rise by just four degrees celsius, the forecast is cloudy with a chance of obliteration. Khanna’s latest book is Connectography: Mapping the Future of Global Civilization (http://goo.gl/fUVuXR). Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/parag-khanna-on-climate-change-and-connectivity Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript - If global temperatures rise four degrees Celsius above the 1990 baseline temperature level used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the IPCC, and that may happen by 2040, 2050 or around that time based on present temperature sort of rise trajectory. That would have a very devastating impact on global food production. Right now the countries of the world that are the largest food producers such as the United States, Brazil, China, India, Australia – if the temperature rise by four degrees Celsius several decades from now it could be that the food production is generally wiped out in many of those geographies because of desertification, crop failure and so forth. Already there’s a lack of sufficient water irrigation and fresh water supply for agriculture in Australia. We see water tables falling in the western United States and so forth. Meanwhile if temperatures do rise to that degree and in fact temperatures rise the fastest in the northern latitudes of the world and the southern latitudes in other words at the poles. Whereas sea levels rise fastest at the equator. And so what we’ll find is that in a world that’s four degrees Celsius warmer a large amount of the world’s food production is predicted to take place in today’s Canada and Russia. Now Canada and Russia are the two largest countries in the world by geographic territory. But they are also perhaps ironically two of the world’s most depopulated countries. Their populations are very small and very concentrated in very, very small areas. Most of the Canadian population for example lives very close to the United States border. And most of Russia’s population lives west of the Euro mountains very close to Eastern Europe. Whereas about six-sevenths of Russia’s territory, this vast geography known, a large chunk of it is known as Siberia for example is largely uninhabited. But if you project forward where food will be grown in a world that is that much warmer in fact these depopulated areas of Canada and Russia may be the world’s breadbaskets. The problem is there’s no people. And so of course we would have to think about who are the people who are going to live there? Might we need to have population transfers and mass migrations for people to work in the agricultural sector or to develop the agribusiness industries of these countries to feed the planet. Because after all it will not be the United States and Canada, the United States and China and India and Australia and Brazil that are feeding the world. It’ll be Canada and Russia that are feeding the world. So the food supply chain on a global basis is going to shift and move and become much more dependent on these northern geographies. And so this is the prediction that a number of scientists have made and that’s of course going to require a significant rethinking of the meaning of political geography when we depend so much on just two countries for our food.

Kiribati - A Climate Change Reality
 
06:32
#COP21 @UNDP undo.org/cop21 Boobu Tioram, a resident of the Pacific island of Kirabati, took time out from reinforcing a seawall in front of his newly built house to speak with UNDP about what climate change has meant to his way of life. I have moved three times, every three years I have moved, he said, standing on the beach a few metres from his home. Tioram gestured toward a point about 20 metres into the sea, and explained that his first house once stood on a spot now covered in swelling ocean waves. Each time he has moved farther inland, and each time the sea has followed. Im not sure how long Ill be [in this house], Tioram continued. That depends on how strong my seawall here can withstand high tide waves. UNDP believes that it is the developing world that stands to lose the most, and which is already losing out, as the effects of climate change edge toward the catastrophic. As climate negotiations open in Copenhagen, worlds away from this tiny Pacific nation consisting of 33 low lying atolls, it is important to keep in mind that for the people of Kirabati, and other poor island and coastal nations, funds for adaptation and not only prevention must top the international to-do list. Carbon trading will be of no special consequence to us, so there has got to be some very special provisions for the victims, said Kirabati President Anote Tong. Not the potential victims, but the victims, because we are the victims, so there has to be some very deep soul searching. Kirabati is no more than four metres high at its highest point, and 100 percent of the population lives within one kilometre of the coast, making this nation one of the most vulnerable to the effects of global warming. Its future is uncertain, including the question of whether it even has a future anymore. The scientific research shows that by 2100 its almost certain that well have more than a metre of sea level rise, said Karen Bernard, a UNDP programme specialist in natural disaster reduction and transition. On a flat island like Kirabati that mount of sea level rise comes very far inland. Its a very serious situation, Bernard continued. For that reason, the Government is looking for options for relocating the population.

UK Climate Change Risk Assessment 2017 - Urgent priorities for the UK
 
02:31
This animation accompanies the UK Climate Change Risk Assessment 2017 Evidence Report. This report has been prepared for the UK Government by the Adaptation Sub-Committee of the Committee on Climate Change. www.theccc.org.uk/uk-climate-change-risk-assessment-2017 Script Climate change is a global problem. The world is already around a degree warmer than it was, due to extra greenhouse gases in the atmosphere from human activity. Scientists have warned for some time that a temperature rise of two degrees or more risks severe and potentially irreversible changes to our planet. 2016 is set to be the warmest year ever recorded. If so, it will be the third record warmest year in a row. Last year’s historic Paris Agreement was an important step towards tackling this. But the effects of climate change are already being felt in the UK. Average temperatures are increasing and there is a trend towards milder winters and hotter summers. We can also expect more frequent floods, like those we’ve seen in recent years. And there are plenty of other challenges on the horizon. Which is why the Committee on Climate Change has carried out a comprehensive, scientific assessment of the risks and opportunities for the UK. The climate change risk assessment is the result of more than three years of work, involving hundreds of leading scientists, and experts from both the public and private sectors. It shows that the greatest threats to the UK come from periods of too much or too little water, increasing average and extreme seasonal temperatures, and rising sea levels. Action is needed to tackle six key risks: The increasing chance of more severe and widespread flooding. Risks to public health from higher temperatures, including in overheating homes. A risk of shortages in public water supplies, and scarce water for farming. A threat to nature including loss of native species. Food price spikes and potential disruption to UK and global food production. And risks from new and emerging pests and diseases affecting people, animals and plants. The longer action is delayed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and adapt to the changes, the higher the costs and risks will be. Climate change is happening now. This new UK risk assessment identifies where more effort is necessary, and urgent, to address these risks. It’s time to act.

Miami's Real Estate Market is Benefiting from Rising Sea Levels (HBO)
 
04:21
The latest reports from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predict that sea levels are likely to rise almost three feet by the end of the century. And in South Florida, sea level rise and climate change are already having an effect on roads and drinking water. But looking at Miami Beach’s real estate market, you wouldn’t know that the city is potentially facing a half a trillion dollars in flood damage. Shane Smith met with two of Miami beach’s top real estate brokers, Jill Hertzberg and Jill Eber, to find out what’s protecting the market. He also speaks with an insurance expert from Wharton who explains how the city’s public funds come predominantly from real estate taxes — meaning that putting more property at risk is also the very thing helping Miami deal with rising seas.

Dr. James Hansen and an international group of 18 premier climate scientists published a new study on Tuesday titled, “Ice Melt, Sea Level Rise & Superstorms,” warning that popular climate change projections vastly underestimate the speed at which humanity could be faced with fast-developing, catastrophic effects driven by climate change. Those effects include near-term superstorms and multimeter sea-level rise within 60 years even if global warming peaks at 2°C over preindustrial levels. In other words, we’re in a lot of trouble.

Bangladesh Documentary climate change
 
50:46
In June 2, 2014, Michael C. Hall travels to Bangladesh to see how climate change will impact workers and the poor in developing countries in the coming decades, when a projected 150 million people will be forced to leave their homes to escape sea level rise and increased drought, insect-borne disease and flooding. He finds that in low-lying, flood-prone, densely populated Bangladesh, sea level rise and the lengthening of the monsoon season, both caused by global warming, have already caused a migration of coastal people to Dhaka and other cities, and even across the border into India, because they have lost their homes or livelihoods. These factors are projected to lead to the displacement of 20 million of Bangladeshis by 2100, who are often forced to take dangerous work. Hall notes that since the US has contributed a large portion of the emissions already in the atmosphere, it bears responsibility for the climate change impacts in poorer nations. On June 9, 2014, Hall concludes his journey to Bangladesh, where rising seas are expected to submerge 17% of the country. He learns that global warming is a human rights, public health and foreign policy issue.
