Flood warning: Greenland's melting ice threatens 400 million people with floods - MAPPED | Science | News 45

In 2013, the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predicted the seas will rise by 23.6 inches (60cm) by the end of 2100.

The estimate placed around 360 million people around the globe in the direct path of flooding.

But according to the new estimates, an additional 40 million people will feel the impact.

According to Professor Shepherd, just 0.4 inches (1cm) of sea-level rise will impact about 6 million people.

As a result, the expert expects about 100 million people to suffer from floods each year by the end of 2100.
