Climate change could keep Singapore underwater by 2100 — Know top 10 Global Cities

Are you based in Singapore? If so, rising sea level could keep you underwater by 2100.

Climate Change could cause Singapores median local sea level to rise 9.5 metres, submerging the homes of 745,000 Singaporeans by 2100, according to results published by Climate Central.

The report found that carbon emissions causing 4C of warming a business-as-usual scenario could cause Singapores to that level, Yahoo News quoted.

This report assesses and lists global nations and urban agglomerations at risk by projected total population exposure, percent exposure, and differences in exposure under warming scenarios of 1.5, 2, 3 and 4 °C (2.7, 3.6, 5.4 and 7.2 °F). 

The areas around Marina Bay, Changi Airport, Jurong, Tuas, and the Southern Islands of Singapore are at risk of going underwater if temperatures rise, even by 2C.

Global megacities with the top ten populations in the balance include Shanghai, Hong Kong, Calcutta, Mumbai, Dhaka, Jakarta, and Hanoi. 4 °C warming could lead to submergence of land inhabited by more than half the population of Shanghai, Mumbai and Hanoi, among these.
