The U.S. Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee was holding a hearing on sea-level rise and coastal resilience began inside commission chambers in Miami Beach City Hall, in Miami, Florida, April 22, 2014. The hearing, entitled, "Leading the Way: Adapting to South Florida's Changing Coastline" is being chaired by Florida U.S. Senator Bill Nelson on the 44th anniversary of Earth Day. South Florida, with a population of 5.5 million is considered by many environmentalists to be ground zero for sea level rise. Picture taken November 5, 2013.

Waves wash over rocks that fringe Sydney Harbour October 27, 2009. Australia needs to adopt a national policy to combat rising sea levels, which may see people forced to abandon coastal homes and banned from building beachside homes, said a parliamentary climate change committee.

The small town of Ilulissat in Greenland is seen in this photo taken August 16, 2007. New York, Boston and other cities on North America's northeast coast could face a rise in sea level this century that would exceed forecasts for the rest of the planet if Greenland's ice sheet keeps melting as fast as it is now, researchers said May 27, 2009. Sea levels off the northeast coast of North America could rise by 12 to 20 inches more than other coastal areas if the Greenland glacier-melt continues to accelerate at its present pace, the researchers reported.
