    Scientists figured out when the sea level began to rise and even named the exact year

    (ORDO NEWS) — Researchers have conducted a global analysis of sea levels on the planet over the past two thousand years. The rise appeared to have started earlier than previously thought. The results, published in Nature Communications, indicate that the rise began around the same time as the Industrial Revolution. The researchers found that the rate of this process clearly outpaced background variability by 1863. The sea is coming Around…
