The combined contribution from heating of the oceans, which makes the water expand, along with melting of ice caps and glaciers, is estimated to be 1.1 millimetres per year
That works out to less than four inches of sea level rise by the year 2100.
Undaunted by rational thought, mathematics or journalistic integrity – Justin Gillis predicts more than seventy two inches of sea level rise this century.
