Study: Major Sea-Level Rise Inevitable in Next 1,000 Years

"A study predicts there will be havoc akin to a big-budget Hollywood disaster movie in the next 1,000 years even if people stop emitting all carbon dioxide into the atmosphere now.

Researchers from the University of Calgary and Environment Canada’s climate centre at the University of Victoria say coastal areas will flood and the Earth’s land mass will shrink as global sea levels rise by at least four metres."

Bill Graveland reports for the Canadian Press January 9, 2011.
