Western Australia sea level rising fast  

Posted by Big Gav in

The BBC reports that WA is seeing a much larger than average rise in the level of the ocean - W Australia sea level rising fast.

New figures have revealed that sea levels along the coast of Western Australia are rising at a rate double that of the world average. Statistics from Australia's National Tidal Centre show levels have increased by 8.6mm a year off the coast of the state capital Perth. That compares to a global average of just over 3mm.

Scientists have said that man-made climate change has played a significant role in the rise. Climatologists have said that a combination of natural variability and man-made pollution have caused sea levels to rise around the world.
