Will global warming cause ocean levels to rise significantly?

    It certainly could if there is significant glacial melting in the polar regions of our world.  Shown below is a graph indicating the significant rise in recent years of sea levels.


    There are studies that have been done that suggest this rise is heavily linked with climate change and the increased global average temperature.

    Another contributing factor to the rising sea levels is our own fossil water mining practice.  All over the world, industries are ‘mining’ water from fossil sources – underground aquifers that are NOT part of the water cycle, and therefore are not replenished – and that water inevitably ends up in the ocean.  Water that wasn’t in the ocean is being put into the ocean, therefore sea levels rise.
