fetch me my martini before the ice melts

In the latest issue of Science, researchers have combined a global climate model, a dynamic ice sheet model, and paleoclimatic data to issue new dire predictions on the rapidity of ice melt and water rise.

According to the Times UK, this is the first study,

to combine computer models of rising temperatures with records of the ancient climate [which] has indicated that sea levels could rise by up to 20ft (6m) by 2100, placing millions of people at risk.

Take a look at the whole issue of Science, dedicated to ice and climate change.
