Australia, the smallest continent and one of the largest countries on Earth, lying between the Pacific and Indian oceans in the Southern Hemisphere. Global warming is causing global mean sea level to rise in two ways. First, glaciers and ice sheets worldwide are melting and adding water to the ocean. Second, the volume of the ocean is expanding as the water warms. According to a report published by IPCC Since the onset of the industrial revolution, human activities have had a strong impact on the climate system, including the ocean and cryosphere. The graph below shows the change in sea level since 1993 as observed by satellites.

Why is sea level rise bad and what can you do about it?
Australia is a continent surrounded by the coast. As sea levels rise, millions of people around the world are affected by increased coastal flooding and coastal erosion, as well as higher storm surges moving further inland.
There’s a lot you can do. A big part of the solution is continuing to accelerate the deployment of solar power generation.
