Rising Seas: Flooding, Climate Change and Our New World
Since 1900, global sea levels have risen steadily each year to a global average of about 8 inches today, and they’re still rising. By 2100, the sea could climb as much as 14 to 32 feet. This important book gives youth a visual look at the effect of rising water levels. Photographs juxtapose the present-day with that same area’s projected future. The images will help students understand the urgency for action. Key issues in today’s news will be better understood, such as the 2015 Paris Protocol in which most of the world agreed to limit temperature increases to 2 degrees Celsius. Recommended for ages 9 to 13.
