This is what West Sussex could look like if sea levels continue to rise

Surging Seas has created an interactive map which shows what the world is projected to look like in the year 2100, after the polar ice caps melt and sea levels rise if current pollution rates continue. The project said: “Without big cuts in climate pollution, an unstable Antarctica could double previous sea level projections.” Surging Seas has been developed by Climate Central, a nonprofit science and news organisation which researches climate change.
