Sea level rise is too much for five islands in Pacific Ocean

One of the biggest problems attributed to climate change is sea level rise. We see it here as Highway 80 out to Tybee continues to flood more and more frequently.

 

Recently, sea level rise completely submerged five islands near the Solomon Islands in the Pacific Ocean. It has impacted other islands in the area too.

 

Sea level rise in the Solomon Islands is accelerated, partly due to natural cycles of climate change. Sea levels near these islands have risen three times as fast as the global average.

 

The islands will be studied to learn more about how global climate change will have an impact on other islands and land masses if it continues to happen at a faster rate.
