Sea level rise 'is accelerating'

Global sea levels could rise by about 30cm during this century if current trends continue, a study warns.

Australian researchers found that sea levels rose by 19.5cm between 1870 and 2004, with accelerated rates in the final 50 years of that period.

The research, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, used data from tide gauges around the world.

The findings fit within predictions made by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

A good time to invest in swimwear?

Too bad it's so expensive to convert salt water into drinking water.(Don't laugh it's true...I think Isreal does it) ;P We could take that excess water and deliver it to drought-stricken countries in Africa. ;)
