Scientists have noted an abnormal surge in sea levels along the U.S. Gulf and southeastern coastlines since 2010. This development raises concerns about the safety of low-lying areas such as New Orleans, Florida, and Texas that are susceptible to flooding. According to scientists, this sharp increase in sea levels is due to the melting of polar ice caps, warming oceans, and other climate change factors. This finding indicates that if carbon levels are not reduced, the U.S. can expect significant flooding and rising sea levels that may displace tens of millions of people. The study was conducted using data from satellites provided by the U.S. government’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
