The earth's oceans are on the rise. Since 1900, global sea levels have risen steadily each year to a global average of about 8 inches (20 cm) today, and they're still rising. By 2100, the sea could climb as much as 14 feet (4.3m) to 32 feet (9.75m). 'Rising Seas' gives youth an eye-popping view of what the Earth might look like under the rising and falling water levels of climate change. Photographs juxtapose the present-day with that same area's projected future. The shocking images will help them understand the urgency for action. Key issues in today's new will be better understood, such as the 2015 Paris Protocol.
