"Now a refined climate model is predicting, among other things, sea level rises of as much as 20 feet, according to research results published today in the journal Science."

" 'We need to start serious measures to reduce greenhouse gases within the next decade," Overpeck says. 'If we don't do something soon, we're committed to [13 to 20 feet] of sea level rise in the future.' " 03-06
