Our planet faces wracking changes caused by climate change. Even if we lower greenhouse gas emissions to avoid crossing the 1.5 degree C danger line for global warming, the Earth is already warmer, the atmosphere is loaded with carbon dioxide that holds heat that used to escape into space, and we are heading for rises in sea levels that could inundate ports and coastal cities around the world.

This Earth911 quiz explores how much sea levels will rise as a result of global warming, and what challenges we will face as a result. Test your knowledge and learn something new. And contact your representatives to demand action against climate change.
