.@Reuters jumps PNAS embargo & utterly botches story on new @PIK_climate study of sea level rise per degree warming.
Story headline: “Models point to rapid sea-level rise from climate change”
Paper title (italics added): “The multi-millennial sea-level commitment of global warming”
Paper: “[W]e are committed to a sea-level rise of about 2.3 meters [per 1ºC] within the next 2000 years.”
At least Reuters got in a solid quote from lead author Anders Levermann that makes the right point on the right time scale:
"Continuous sea-level rise is something we cannot avoid unless global temperatures go down again," Levermann said. "Our results indicate that major adaptation at our coastlines will be necessary. It’s likely that some currently populated regions can’t be protected in the long run."
