How much land a year are we losing because of rising sea levels?

    Measuring land loss from rising sea levels on a yearly basis is somewhat difficult because sea levels, even when influenced by climate change, do not rise all that fast. Estimates say that sea levels will rise between 0.6 feet and 2 feet within the next 100 years. However, a 2 foot rise in sea levels would result in the loss of 10,000 square miles of land. That’s about the same land area as Massachusettes and Delaware combined!
