  • Melting Antarctic Ice Threatens the World's Megacities

    A first-of-its-kind study finds that global sea levels could rise 20 percent higher by 2100 than previously estimated because of melting ice in Antarctica.   “A 20 percent higher sea level makes a bad situation worse,” said Robert Bindschadler, a glaciologist and coauthor of the study, which was published in the journal Earth Systems Dynamics.   “Right now nine of the 10 largest cities—Mexico City being the only exception—are coastal cities,” said Bindschadler, an emeritus researcher at NASA Goddard Space Center who collaborated with Anders Levermann at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. Bindschadler’s estimates are higher than those released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in an April report.
