Climate change helps seas rise and awaken Japanese war dead. Marshal Islands officials have asked the world to do something to stop sea level rise.

 

Rising sea level is affecting many parts of the world in many ways. And in Marshal Islands, the rising sea levels have destroyed graves containing Japanese soldiers bodies.

 

This is going to bring the issue into focus and will certainly show to the world that the climate change is actually not an issue for the future generations but a major problem for us too.

 

Antarctic2A top official of the Marshal Islands has told the world as to what sort of damage the rising sea level are causing to this small nation. Marshal Islands foreign minister while talking during a UN conference said, “These last spring tides in February to April this year have caused not just inundation and flooding of communities but have also undermined regular land, so that even the dead are affected… There are coffins and dead people being washed away from graves, it’s that serious”.

 

There is no denying the fact that the sea level has been rising for quite some time. But due to the increased effects of global warming it is going up faster than anytime in the past. A National Geographic report says, “Core samples, tide gauge readings, and, most recently, satellite measurements tell us that over the past century, the Global Mean Sea Level (GMSL) has risen by 4 to 8 inches (10 to 20 centimeters). However, the annual rate of rise over the past 20 years has been 0.13 inches (3.2 millimeters) a year, roughly twice the average speed of the preceding 80 years”.

 

A study conducted by NASA says that rise in sea level is becoming fast in recent years and will accelerate in coming decades. The report described the ice melting as an unstoppable event that will cause global sea levels to rise higher than projected earlier. But scientists say that the rise in sea level due to melting of ice will be slow and take centuries. It has said that sea level will go up by as much as 12 feet.
