Sea levels rising
Report projects a devastated America, up to 8 feet of sea level rise, 18°F Arctic warming – unless action is taken now.

The Earth’s glaciers and ice caps show accelerated retreat. This accounts for 1/3rd of global sea level rise (between 2.6 and 2.9 mm per year over the past 20 years).
NOAA scientists conclude that global mean sea level will rise by between 0.2m and 2m by 2100.
(U.S. Climate Change Science Program.)
If emissions are not reduced sharply, "There is the probability that the rise will be beyond 2 metres by 2100... which, will cause displacement of 187 million people."

This compares to the <1 million Syrian refugees who have entered Europe in the last 10 years.
