Oceanographer and world’s leading expert on sea level rise, Dr John Church, talks with Helen Caldicott about the urgent situation we are facing this century. Scientists predict ocean levels will rise by 1 meter by 2100, displacing up to 140 million people around the world.
Dr Church explains how more frequent storms will create coastal flooding, and predicts that environmental refugees will be a major issue for the 21st Century. He also discusses the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets, and how they are slowly melting as a direct result of human made climate change.
