RESEARCH UPDATE: The Paris Climate Agreement and future sea-level rise from Antarctica RESEARCH UPDATE: The Paris Climate Agreement and future sea-level rise from Antarctica

Monday May 10, 2021

However, the paper reveals that there still appears to be an opening for humankind to collectively reduce greenhouse gas emissions to prevent this mid-century acceleration in sea-level rise.
