Earth Under Water (2006)

The story of how the world is threatened by rising sea levels due to carbon dioxide emissions and rising global temperatures. If Antarctica and Greenland melted, the world's oceans would rise by 230ft. Using current climate models, scientists predict a maximum six-foot sea-level rise this century - enough to flood Miami and displace millions of people everywhere from New Orleans to Bangladesh. The efforts to use engineering to save cities like London and New Orleans are revealed.
