New Report Warns Sea Level Rise May Flood Coastal Countries By 2070

Nine scientists who have spent decades studying Antarctica say sea levels will rise and all coastal countries could be dangerously threatened by flooding if the sea ice continues to melt.

CNN reports that the scientists published a report in Wednesday's edition of the journal Nature about what could happen before the year 2070.

The report says that if greenhouse gas emissions are not reduced, the Southern Ocean and Antarctica could see a quarter of the volume of sea ice disappear by 2070.
