Mapping Global Exposure to Rising Sea Levels

Climate change is no longer the far-away, somewhat nebulous phenomenon that it was not so long ago. It is with us here and happening now, and its impacts are being felt across both the developing and developed world. Its effects occur without warning; uprooting lives and homes, disrupting economies, and leaving millions of dollars in damages in its wake.

New predictive analysis by Climate Central provides data and imagery on worldwide exposure to rising sea levels and coastal flooding. Results show that 147 to 216 million people live on land that will be below sea level or regular flood levels by the end of the century; that is if emissions from heat-trapping gasses continue on their current trajectory.
