Climate change can cause much faster and higher levels of ocean, a study of the previous warming period (125,000 years ago) showed, BTA reported, quoted by NOVA.
The water then rose 10 meters above current levels to 3 meters per century, according to scientists at the Australian National University. This scenario would be a disaster for hundreds of millions of people.
A record 45 million people are at risk of a food crisis over the next six months in southern Africa, the BTA warned today. The reason for this is the severe drought that has hit part of South Africa, as well as the adverse effects of natural disasters such as the Idai cyclone that devastated Mozambique earlier this year.
