It is currently estimated that one third of the rise in sea levels is linked to the expansion of the oceans (which is itself due to global warming) and two thirds to the melting of the glaciers and polar ice caps of Greenland and Antarctica (more than 99% of the earth’s ice is located in the ice sheets). Today, one person in 10 lives less than 10m above the current sea level.
