According to a new study published in the Nature Climate Change journal, the rate of sea level rise has gone up by about 50 percent over the past two decades. Back in 1993, the sea level rose 2.2 millimeters that year. In 2014, however – which is the most recent year these measurements are available – the sea level ticked up 3.3 millimeters. The sea is rising three times faster than we thought. If cities are the future of sustainability, they can’t only be green — they have to be livable, too.
