Rising of Sea Level

    There are many problems that are caused by human activity and one of them is the rising of sea level. It first started out with people using carbon as energy for things like cars, factory, electricity, etc. which releases CO2, or carbon dioxide, into the  atmosphere. Then after that, a process called the greenhouse effect, which are gases in the atmosphere that traps/absorbs the heat, comes in place, and because of this, it increases the amount of CO2 in the Earth's atmosphere, causing climate change or what others call "Global Warming". When temperature increases, it causes glaciers, ice caps, ice sheets, etc. to melt which is the start of sea level rising.


  As you can see, both graphs show that sea level has been increasing in the last century or two, which is a fact that as the global temperature increases, same will sea level. It is clear that the rising of sea level is causes by climate change and is affected by human activity. Also, there are many other evidences/symptoms of temperature continuing to increase, rising of sea level being one of them, and if sea level keeps rising, many organisms that live in places like the Arctic will be endangered.

      Climate change isn't a new thing, it has always been happening, but today, it has been warmer then ever before. Even if we can't stop sea level from stopping, we can slow the process of it. If we are able to do that, then maybe Florida wouldn't be at risk from global sea level rise and maybe we can prevent animals like polar bears to become likely endangered.
