Experts: Sea level rise of more than 3 feet possible by 2100

NBC News: Melting glaciers may push up global sea levels more than 3 feet by the end of this century, according to a scientific pollof experts. Such a rise could displace millions of people from low-lying countries such as Bangladesh. It could cost coastal mega-cities like New York and Tokyo billions for construction of sea walls and other infrastructure.

"The consequences are horrible," says Jonathan Bamber, a glaciologist at the University of Bristol and co-author of the study published Jan. 6 in the journal "Nature Climate Change."
