Scientists reconstructed the level of the sea over time and confirmed that it is most likely rising faster than at any point in 28 centuries, with rate of increase growing sharply over the past century. They also confirmed that if emissions were to continue at the rate over next few decades, the ocean could rise as much as three or four feet by 2100. Extreme weather events are likely to increase as part of the rise in sea level.
