Climate panel: Sea levels to rise this century
STOCKHOLM - A UN panel said on Friday that sea levels could rise by between 26 and 82 centimetres while temperatures could go up by 0.3 to 4.8 degrees Celsius this century.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) also said it was more certain than ever that humans were causing global warming, according to a summary of the first volume in a long-awaited review.
The Nobel-winning group said it was "extremely likely," a term meaning it was 95-percent convinced, that humans caused more than half of the warming observed over the past 60 years.
In its last report in 2007, the panel had rated its conviction at 90 percent.
