Sea Level Rise
While location dependent, global sea level has already risen by over half a foot since 1880.
Storms are becoming more frequent and more extreme. Models project a 45%-87% increase in the frequency of Category 4 and 5 hurricanes along the East Coast of the United States.
Arctic Ice Melt
The Arctic is warming at twice the rate of the rest of the world. Models predict that the Arctic could be ice free as early as 2030.
