Florida, Singapore & Tokyo under water in 100 years?

Disturbing NASA projection in this morning’s news

Sea levels are rising around the world and the latest satellite data suggests that one metre or more is unavoidable in the next 100-200 years, NASA scientists have said.

Ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica are melting faster than ever, and oceans are warming and expanding much more rapidly than they have in years past……Rising seas will have “profound impacts” around the world, NASA Earth Science Division director Michael Freilich said.

“More than 150 million people, most of them in Asia, live within one meter of present sea level,” he said….

….Low-lying US states such as Florida are at risk of disappearing, as are some of the world’s major cities such as Singapore and Tokyo.
