Sea submerging village

alaskaScientists across the globe are meeting in Alaska to discuss global warming and President Barak Obama is also attending the conference. Villagers are anxiously waiting if they will visit their village coming under the sea erosion. Sea level rising is part of the global warming. When water heats up, it expands and when the ocean warms, sea levels rise. If ice is exposed to heat, it melts and water runs into ocean. The biggest concern is about ice sheets in Antarctica alert that sea rise is threatening the life.  Sea level varies as much as six feet (two meters) from place to place. Regional differences in sea level rise are dominated by the effects of ocean currents and natural cycles such as the Pacific Ocean’s El Niño phenomenon and Pacific Decadal Oscillation. As the ice sheets continue to melt, scientists predict water will contribute to overall sea level rise.
