The rise in global sea levels has accelerated since the 1990s amid rising temperatures, according to a new study. The annual rate of sea level rise has increased by 50 per cent to 3.3 millimetres each year in 2014 from 2.2 millimetres each year in 1993. Researchers hope the findings will act as a'major warning' about the dangers of sea level rise for centuries if global warming isn't stopped.
