The article discusses various issues associated with global sea-level rise due to climatic changes as of September 19, 2013 by arguing findings of climatic scientists of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). According to the IPCC findings, sea levels will rise by around between 18-59 centimeters as of 2013. Physical oceanographer Stefan Rahmstorf argues that IPCC findings fail in indicating how fast the oceans will rise and is not satisfied with tools for forecasting the rise.
