Caption: Global warming. Conceptual image of global warming and rising sea levels, showing the Earth sitting in a deckchair, sweating. Global warming is the increase of average temperature of the Earth's atmosphere and oceans. Increased temperatures can lead to higher sea-levels through several mechanisms including the melting of glaciers and thermal expansion of sea water. The rise in sea level is predicted to be about a metre by the end of the 2100, which would be devastating for low-lying coastal areas.
