One of the adverse effects of global warming is the sea level rise. With increasing temperature, the polar cap melts, threatening the continental coastal areas and especially SIDS (Small Island Developing States).
Between 1901 and 2010, sea level has increased 19 centimeters due to global warming. The ice extension in the Arctic has decreased since 1979 at a rate of 1.07 million square kilometers per decade.
