By 2100 Venice could go under water – scientists

100 years from now Venice could go under water, according to scientists, publishing their research in the journal Quaternary International.

It is noted that until 2100 the level of the Mediterranean sea will rise by 140 cm, experts say. It is noted that for the last 1000 years, sea level has risen by only 30 cm.

To find out how the changing sea level, researchers studied millstones that were used for grain handling by local residents in the 4000-2500 BC, but Some of them remained lying on the shore.

Scientists say that under threat of flooding were 33 regions throughout Italy. The water rises due to global warming and the greenhouse effect. As soon as the temperature rises, the glaciers are melting that contributes to sea-level rise around the globe.

Meanwhile in Antarctica recorded a new temperature record.
