Global Warming Diary

New findings show that oceans may rise unevenly around the world.

It was suggested that if the West Antarctic ice sheet melts down, enough water will be released to boost the ocean levels by 5 meters. Yet, such a significant redistribution of terrestrial mass from Antarctica is expected to reduce the gravitational pull in the area. Consequently, Earth's rotation axis will shift by 500 meters!

Incorporating this into the climate change formula, they deduced that the seas will drop near Antarctica while rising by 7 (5+2) in the Northern Hemisphere.

According to this analysis, the water level is supposed to remain unchanged some where in Africa. Now, where should we invest?
