How Drought Could Make Sea-Level Rise Worse

"...That balance is now likely at an end. California and the western United States face drier futures with climate change, and although there is already significant concern about how drought will continue to interact with agriculture, wildfires, and habitats, sea-level rise and coastal erosion tend to be part of an entirely separate climate conversation. Because drought is so strongly linked with natural shoreline retreat in southern California, it could further imperil attempts to shore up the coastline against sea-level rise..."

New York City, Underwater

"...As global sea level continues to creep up, scientists urge cities like New York to take action. Proposed solutions range from the defensive (storm surge barriers, beach restoration) to the proactive (reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in order to slow the melting of ice sheets). The Union of Concerned Scientists, a science advocacy group, warns against inaction at this critical time: “Whether we react to [the] threat [of sea level rise] by implementing science-based, coordinated, and equitable solutions—or walk, eyes open, toward a crisis—is up to us..."

Opinions The realities of climate change today: Why aren’t we listening yet? The Sheaf

"...The report findings show that greenhouse gases from human activities, since 1850 to 1900, have caused 1. 1 C of warming. The report also estimates that unless “there are immediate, rapid and large-scale reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, limiting warming to close to 1..."

Guest post: The role ‘emulator’ models play in climate change projections

"...While some emulators effectively act as simple climate models – taking future emissions scenarios and projecting greenhouse gas concentrations and global temperature change – others are used for more specific purposes. These models might be used for determining sea level rise from melting ice sheets and glaciers, or translating global temperature rise into regional climate change.  ..."
