But even this dire prediction isn’t severe enough to describe what is happening on the east coast of the United States, where sea levels are rising at an even faster rate. The reason for this, according to a new  study in the February Journal of Geophysical Research, is that the Gulf Stream that moves north and then east toward northern Europe—and usually regulates sea levels in the region—is itself slowing down due to the effects of global warming.
