Abstract

This paper examines the literature to find a realistic forecast of sea-level change during the coming millennium. Climate change induced by greenhouse gas emissions is put into the perspective of changes in CO2 concentrations during geological time. Global dimming is currently acting as a negative feedback but in time this effect should reduce and in conjunction with a likely high emissions scenario, temperatures will rise significantly. The resulting sea-level changes during the next millennium will have very serious implications
