Rising Sea Levels [Infographic]

As global temperatures rise, sea levels have also begun to climb, resulting in disastrous flooding that has devastated and displaced communities around the world. Unfortunately, sea levels will only grow higher in the coming years—temperature increases are likely to continue due to climate change and will rapidly melt glaciers. In this likely scenario, it won’t just be a few people underwater—sea levels could negatively affect more than 100 million people, equaling about one-third of the US population. Sea levels are expected to rise 8-34 inches by 2100, and flooding could make current coastal areas uninhabitable within the next century.

Although the most eco-friendly places in the world (Denmark, Germany, Netherlands) have more than 70% cyclist out of the entire population, many countries still think that bike sharing services are important.
