Earth’s orbit controlled sea-level rise for centuries but now it’s driven by man-made climate modification, study reaffirms
Current sea-level rise is linked to human activities and not changes in Earth’s orbit, according to a new study, reaffirming scientific consensus on the effects of human-induced climate change. The new research found that in the last 66 million years, the planet had almost ice-free periods when carbon dioxide (CO2) levels were not much higher…

C urrent sea-level rise is connected to human activities and not modifications in Earth’s orbit, according to a new study, declaring scientific agreement on the effects of human-induced climate modification

The new research discovered that in the last 66 million years, the planet had nearly ice-free durations when co2 (CO2) levels were not much higher than today’s measurements. The research also discovered glacial periods in times previously believed to have been ice-free.

The research study, conducted by a team from Rutgers University’s Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, concluded that small variations in Earth’s orbit was the controlling force on ice volume and variations in water level for millennia– the very same which can not be said today.
