How Global Warming can Cause Sea Levels to Rise
Earth is often referred to as the "Blue Planet" because 70% of the planet is covered with water. If you take into account huge glaciers in Greenland and Antarctica this leaves only 27% of Earth surface for inhabitation. With limited inhabitable space Earth is highly susceptible to damage caused by a rise in sea levels. If Global Warming continues, ice sheet melting combined with thermal expansion will result in a sea level rises that reduces the amount of land for human and animal inhabitation and release large amounts of carbon dioxide and methane into the atmosphere contributing more to the warming of the planet.
