Sea Levels Rising Faster than Previous 28 Centuries

Not since the founding of Rome have the globes seas risen faster than they are now according to scientists.  Human carbon emissions are too blame for the increased rate they said in a report this week.  Coastal flooding is expected to become more severe over time. Already some island communities are being cut-off from the mainland during flood events.  The international team of  scientists, who published their findings in Proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences, confirmed that the oceans could rise by as much as 3 or 4 feet by 2100.  That is enough increase to cause problems for major coastal cities like New York and Miami.  Flooding may become so severe thereafter that coastal cities would have to be abandoned.  Deny that, Goonies!
