Fossils show proof of global warming's impact

NEW YORK - Sea levels are rising faster than at any point in the past 2,000 years because of the impact of global warming, scientists have found. Scientists used fossils to reconstruct sea levels over the past two millenia on the United States' Atlantic coast and found they are now rising faster than at any time in the past 2,100 years. By comparing the results to changes in global surface temperature, experts established a consistent link between higher temperatures and rising tides. Professor Benjamin Horton, director of the Sea Level Research Laboratory at Pennsylvania University, said: "Sea-level rise is a potentially disastrous outcome of climate change, as rising temperatures melt land-based ice and warm ocean waters." To accurately reconstruct sea levels, an international team of researchers examined layers of sediment from marshes in North Carolina to find remains ...
