Earth Focus presents an exclusive interview with top US climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann on ice melt, rising seas and why the findings of the 2013 report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) fall short. Dr. Mann argues that there is a credible body of scientific study that shows if we continue with business as usual fossil fuel emissions, we will see global sea level rise by as much as two meters (six feet) by the end of this century -- almost twice as high as the IPCC currently projects. A six foot sea rise is a catastrophic prospect for many coastal areas including the East Coast and Gulf Coasts of the United States as well as for small island nations around the world, many of which will be submerged. He argues that the IPCC is more conservative and reticent in what they are willing to conclude given the body of existing evidence.
